Essie Going Guru Collection Resort 2016

Essie Going Guru Collection Resort 2016

How hot is it in your neck of the woods? A week ago, we had the most disgusting heat wave here in California that gave us a taste of what is to come this Summer. Personally, I hate Summer with an unreasonable passion which is kind of weird considering I’m a native Californian. I’m just glad that I live close enough to the beach to have the relief of cooler temperatures than those who live more inland. Every year, Essie puts out a Resort Collection that gives us shades that would be a welcome addition to any luscious summer getaway. The Essie Going Guru Collections offers us 4 beautiful shades that are sure to get a lot of use. Let me show you some swatches before I get into the details.

I don’t know if I am just used to the finicky Essie formula, but I did not have many issues with these polishes. I applied two regular coats of each polish and top coated them all with NYC Grand Central Station. I find that with the Essie formula, I have to float the polish on the nail because if I apply too much pressure, I will 100% create bald spots.  While you may say that these colors are not anything new (is anything ever knew anymore in the nail world?), they are really beautiful staple colors. They are bright enough to be fun for summer yet muted enough to not be super in your face. Nama-Stay the Night is probably my favorite color here with Going Guru a close second. What do you think of this year’s Resort Collection? Well, I hope your Tuesday is going well! Talk to you soon.
