Essie Summer 2015 Mini Collection Swatches + Review

I've been wearing the heck out of pastel polishes as of late, and thought it was time to inject a few bold and beautiful brights to my lacquer repertoire, because summer is coming, so I had to snag the Essie Summer 2015 Mini Collection after spotting it at Ulta. From formula to shade names, this mini collection is utterly perf for the summer season and your upcoming vacays; but I'll let the swatches do the talking.

Chillato is a Pale Yellow / Lime Green Creme. Yellows are so not my thing in terms of polish, but Chillato grabbed me like whoa! Considering how pale-meets-pastel this shade is, the formula was amazing to work with - non-streaking, and nicely buildable. Bonus: No staining {such a rarity in the world of yellow lacquers}. This is 2 coats.

Peach Side Babe is a Peach Creme. If you love bright peachy pink coral nail colors {and who doesn't?}, Peach Side Babe is going to win your heart. The pink undertones in this shade make it look v similar to e.l.f.'s Coral Dream {which I love; so, of course, this is a fave}; but it's not a dupe, so having both in your collection won't hurt. Formula is fab - smooth, creamy...vibrant. Love! This is 2 coats.

Sunset Sneaks is a Geranium Creme. Sunset Sneaks is a total game-changer for me. Why? It's one of the only blood orange red shades that I have ever fallen head over heels for. It's similar to OPI's Aloha From OPI; but has more of a pinky/coral undertone that makes it feel a bit more wearable for my skintone. The formula here...I can't even. So. Perfect. With thick coats, you could definitely make this a OCW. This is 2 coats.

Pret-A-Surfer is a Periwinkle Creme. I feel like part of me loves this shade for the name, which reminds me of Net-A-Porter {because...shopping}; but seriously, Pret-A-Surfer is straight-up perfection. The color is rich and creamy, the formula is flawless, and the application? Easy, breezy...beautiful. This is 1 1/2 coats.

AVAILABILITY: Ulta for the 4-pack mini; mass market merchandisers, drugstores, and department stores for full-size individual bottles.

PRICE: $17.00 at Ulta; or buy full-size bottles separately for $8.50 each.
