Essie Resort 2016 4PC Mini Set Swatches + Review

I wasn't planning on buying Essie's Resort 2016 4PC Mini Set because the colors in the bottle seemed very meh to me; but when I spotted it on sale at Ulta, I thought I'd give it a shot - especially since Nama-Stay The Night was on my shopping list. Three words: Best. Decision. Ever. BBs, if you are judging this collection by bottle shade alone {like I was}, you need to run out and try them for yourselves because they are some of the most unique shades I have ever laid eyes {or hands} on. See for yourself!

Nama-Stay The Night is an Energetic Goa Blue Creme. It's not often that you come across a super-saturated cerulean blue shade as stunning as this, so when you do you kind of have to add it to your stash pronto - and for good reason. Nama-Stay The Night, aside from having one of the best polish names ever has an absolutely brilliant formula - being top-notch in density, opacity, and flow. The true icing on the cake though? No staining upon removal. This is 2 coats.

Delhi Dance is a Silky Sari Pink Creme. This color is giving me liiiife. For reals babes! How many pink polishes do we all have in our personal collections? Too many, amiright? Well, Delhi Dance is unlike all of them! It's like Pepto-Bismol meets Barbie meets Dubble Bubble Bubblegum, and it. is. brilliant. Totally digging the formula here. One swipe, two swipe, top coat, done! What is up with all of the amazing pinks in this year's collections?! I'm totally feeling them! This is 2 coats.

Going Guru is a Meditative Mint Lime Creme. Hellllooo gorgeous! Ooh girls I am so feeling this shade {and corresponding name} rn. Going Guru is like the love child of a pina colada and a key lime pie - it has the frostiness of the former and the lime kiss of the latter. This one was made for getting caught in the rain, ja feel? Formula here was slightly thinner than that of the other shades; however, it was still 100% fab - two smooth, even coats {that are hyper-glossy} and you are good. to. go. This is 2 coats.

Taj-Ma-Haul is a Spicy Apricot Marigold Creme. Never, ever, ever did I think that Taj-Ma-Haul would tickle my fancy, but after applying it to my nails...love, pure love. Ladies, this color is unlike anything I have ever seen before in the world of nail polish {and I've seen a lot}. Taj-Ma-Haul reminds me of curry powder {so perfect given the India inspo of this collection}, and would be a total smash during fall / Thanksgiving festivities! Formula here is flawless, and infused with a natural gorgeous gloss that will keep your tips glowing. Get it girls! This is 2 coats.

AVAILABILITY: Skincare By Alana for the mini set; Amazon for individual bottles.

PRICE: $17.00 for the quartet; or buy individual bottles separately for $8.50 each.
