"Travel feeds the soul. Adventure excited the senses. For thrilling sights in an array of shades, Antigua is the place to just be. From St. John's to English Harbor, the island's colorful towns, gorgeous craft makers, tribal text-styles and brilliant food excite the senses and are ripe for the ideal inspiration for the essie summer 2016 collection.
Summertime is the moment to get inspired by adventurous color, and there is no better place to defy convention and go bold, than the sun-soaked shores of Antigua! Leave the guidebook behind and strike out on a style itinerary all your own. No matter where you go, there's an essie Summer 2016 shade to reflect your fashion ambitions." according to the official press release.
The Essie Summer 2016 Collection includes the following shades-
Hiking Heels: a bright bold cherry red cream. [scorching hot lava red]
Viva Antigua!: a turquoise blue with fine shimmer running through it. [iridescent crystalline turquoise]
Coconut Cove: a vanilla white cream. [sweet cream white]
Loot the Booty: a royal blue with fine blue and purple shimmer in it. [pave sapphire blue]
Tribal Text-Styles: a midnight sparkling gunmetal. [black gold and crushed onyx]
Berried Treasure: a bright red/magenta cream. [bright ruby berry]
(all swatches shown here are two coats and are taken outdoors in natural sunlight).
What I am most impressed and in love with this collection is the formula, how highly well pigmented the shades were. Almost all of the colors in this collection provided almost complete coverage in a single coat, it was truly remarkable. I used two coats as usual just for good measure.
I also really love the sparkly nature of many of the colors, perfect for summer pedicures.
And even if your not head over heels in love with this entire collection, trust me and at least invest in a couple of the colors; the formula is honestly that good!
My personal favorites are: Tirbal Text-Styles and Loot the Booty
Each bottle is 13.5 ml (0.46 fl oz).
Essie's Summer 2016 Collection retails at $9 per bottle and will be available June 2016
