Essie - Summer 2013 Mini collection - Swatches on nail wheel

It's been just under two weeks since I last painted my nails (I've been trying to improve the quality and strength of my nails using Rimmel's Nail Nurse, Nail rescue treatment - HERE) which would be really hard for me at the best of times, considering I paint my nails 4 or 5 times a week, but since I won some Gorgeous nail polishes in the fantastic Beauty Bay competition that I won (HERE) it's been Even harder! 

I did, though, find a way to make it a little easier and that's by painting up a nail wheel to show you lovely people how beautiful the Essie Summer Collection, that I got, is. 

This is the 2013 Summer collection and I Absolutely love all four of the colours in it.

As you can see from the picture above they're called 'Full steam Ahead', 'The More the Merrier', 'Naughty Nautical' and 'Sunday Funday'

Sorry about the iffy light but these are the polishes in their bottles from left to right we have 'More the Merrier', 'Sunday Funday', 'Full Steam Ahead' and 'Naughty Naughtical'.
More the Merrier is a normal cream formula but the other three all have tiny particles of shimmer in - These aren't really obvious like bigger glitter would be but they just add a gorgeous radiance to the polishes as I've Tried to show you in the wheel swatches.

Slightly better light here and I think, if you look closer, you can see the shimmer in the three polishes on the right (Might help if you click the photo to enlarge it) - They're all such lovely shades though, so fun and bright, the absolute essence of summer; even if the actual weather hasn't been! All that said, I'm not one for sticking to rules so I'm pretty sure I'll be rocking these throughout any seasons that they take my fancy.

I am absolutely itching to get these on my actual nails... Only a few more days to go!


  1. I have Sunday Funday which I love but I'm desperate to get my hands on Naughty Nautical it's stunning!


    1. Mhmm definitely, it's Naughty Nautical that I'm itching to use first, though weirdly the green is calling to me too even though it's not the sort of thing I normally go crazy for heh xx

  2. These shades are soo yummy - I particularly like the chartreuse. It's a tricky color, but it's just so bright and cheery :O). Xx

    1. How I'm going to settle on just one for the first time I paint my nails when the treatment has finished I don't know!

      Definitely something for everyone in this collection :) xx

  3. I love these shades. Pretty sure this is on the wishlist. I don't hold much hope of winning though.
