Essie Resort 2013 Collection

Hey Everyone!!  I hope you all had a nice weekend!  I did.  I spent some time with wonderful friends in beautiful Columbus, Ohio!  :)

I really like Essie Polish.  I don't do many posts of them, but when I do, I'm usually pretty impressed with.  I have discovered something recently-- Essie polishes seem to last the longest on my nails.  They just don't chip as much or as easily as any other brand.  So, I definitely won't hesitate to grab any color that catches my eye from Essie.  Today I have Essie's Resort 2013 Collection to share with you..

Come Here!:

Come Here! is another summer coral (we seem to be seeing a lot of them).  This one has strong red tones and is really bright.  I love this color!  The pictures above were taken after I wore Come Here! for two days.  It has a great formula and full opacity was reached with two coats.  This one is my favorite from this collection!!

Under Where?:

Under Where? is a soft lilac cream that leans strongly toward pink.  The formula wasn't the greatest with this one.  It's not really a true cream.  I was a bit watery.  I used three coats in the above photo.  The finished look is nice, I just really like a more "creamy" formula.

In The Cab-ana:

In The Cab-ana is another one of those light blue creams we've been seeing a lot of lately (ie: OPI Where's My Czechbook?, Zoya Rocky, Essie Where's My Chauffeur?)  I did a comparison post that I'll post below.  In The Cab-ana leans a little toward turquoise.  It's very pretty, but very familiar.  Pictured above is two coats..
This pic isn't the greatest. It's from my iPhone, but here's a comparison pic :)
First Timer:

First Timer is a mint green cream.  This formula and I didn't get along too well.  My bottle seemed to have "chunks" of something in it.. dried polish, maybe?  You can see some of the "chunks" on my nails.  It's weird.  I've see other reviews that rave about First Timer's formula, so maybe I just got a bad bottle.  I'm not a huge fan of this color.  Two generous coats are pictured above.

**There you have the Essie 2013 Resort Collection.  Do you have any from this collex?  Which is your fave??  By far, mine is Come Here!

Have a wonderful week!!  :)


  1. OMG I must go get Come Here! It's gorgeous.

  3. Come Here! looks gorgeous on you!

  4. Come Here looks so pretty! Love how all of these look on you.

  5. I don't have this polishes but I think that is an amazing collection! I really love Come Here! :)

  6. Beautiful swatches, your nAils are gorgeous! I don't have any of them yet but I love in the cabana, I'm a sucker for a teal.

    1. thanks Amber! I've really been loving Essie lately!!

  7. I have First Timer on my wishlist because I have been "collecting" greens. Weird that you had chunks in yours? Maybe that's them trying to get into the textured polish trend...:)

  8. love in the cab-ana and first timer. bright pastels are a weakness of mine.

  9. I bought Under Where, In the Cab-ana, and First Timer. Under Where was watery for me, too, but the color is gorgeous. I blogged about In the Cab-ana and First Timer. I'm convinced that you did get a bad bottle of First Timer, 'cause mine was fabulous.

    Come Here is definitely your shade, looks amazing on you.
