Yesterday I showed you two gorgeous shades from Essie’s new Summer 2013 collection, and today I have two more for you!
First up, my other favourite from this collection, the impossibly beautiful Sunday Funday! Sunday Funday is a delicious-looking salmon/coral shade filled with the glass flecks shared by most of this collection. An absolute dream to apply, Sunday Funday was similar to Naughty Nautical with excellent coverage and high shine. This is one of my most favourite summer shades, year after year, and I love how Essie bottled it with the added sparkle factor (via glass flecks)!
Here are two gorgeous, quickly drying coats with base coat, pre-top coat in the sun:
And in the shade:
Tell me that is not the most perfect summer hue!
Another soft shade, the next polish is Rock the Boat (this name always reminds me of Aaliyah’s song), a beautiful pale sky-blue shade. The glass flecks look really silvery in this bottle, lending a cool sheen to this polish.
Formula-wise, this was very similar to Full Steam Ahead, with Rock the Boat being a crelly (cream-jelly) formula, making application sometimes tricky. I find a quick application of light-to-medium coverage on the first coat helps, then let that dry for a moment before starting on your next coat, so as to prevent any dragging. Here are two coats of Rock the Boat in the sun:
And in the shade:
