I've recently received my order from nailetc which contained among other goodies, the Essie Resort Collection 2011!
Today I'll be showing you the first of the 4: Your Hut Or Mine. I think the've forgot to add the interogation sign "?" :)
Well, I know that is has been swatched and re-swatched... but, let's just say that it hasn't :D
Cute cute polish! Since I've seen it I wanted to try on right away! Among the bottles, this one was my favourite. Now, I gotta see what's gonna be like on the nails...
The base is a beautiful vintage pink with a touch of coral, makes me think of a rose. It has also got this great golden micro shimmer which shines so bright in the sun! Very neat and very sweet!
The formula of this one is ok, I needed 2 coats for full opacity and to get rid of the small streaks it did on the first coat.
|Taken in the sun.|
|And in the sun again. Isn't that shimmer so cool? Me - love it.|
|Sun again ;)|
|In the shade.|
Here is where I'm gonna do a break and say... wait a minute, wait a minute!... I've got dupe for this one! A dupe that was not released yet.. but still a dupe LOL! Check this out:
|This baby is OPI My Address Is Hollywood!!! This polish will be released in august for the fall collection, called Touring America. I strongly believe that they're dupes ;)|
If you want to see more pictures of My Address Is Hollywood, see the swatch here.
Re-reading my post about it, I can say that I prefer the OPI formula, no doubt about it.
All right, now back to our subject of the day: Essie Your Hut Or Mine:
And here is my very first attempt of nail-art!! :) Well, I kept simple and stupid, and a débutante in this particular domain, so please forgive my imperfections ;)
I've used OPI Lincoln Park After Dark for the tips, and OPI DS Coronation for the dots. As tools, i only used a classic dotting tool. I especially like the DS Coronation dots beacuse they look a bit like little diamonds ;P
Hope you like it :
Thank you for watching!!
See ya soon everyone!!
