Essie 2013 Summer Collection

Essie Summer 2013

I just came back from an eight day cruise and waiting at home was Essie's Summer 2013 nail polish collection. The colors captivated me and instead of unpacking I headed to the nail salon for a mani/pedi -- with one of the new colors of course. The Summer collection is made up of six shades. Each nail polish shade you'll notice has a bit of a shimmery finish. Not glitter or something obvious, but a sparkling, subtle finish. Essie's collection screams Summer.

CEO and Founder Essie Weingarten said, "There's nothing more calming than a cruise to paradise, it completely rejuvenates mind, body and soul. This collection is for women in a sunshine state of mind.

She went on to say that the six shades make the perfect wardrobe for Summer and was inspired by coverups and pastels. From bright to bold there's a signature summer color for everyone. And if there's one thing you can always count on from Essie it's the fun names they give every nail polish they put out.

I'll be spending the next several weeks changing up my manicure color, because trying every single one of these colors is a must! Take the time to have fun with color on your next manicure and let Essie come along for the ride.
