When I think resort season, I instantly think light summer clothes, walking shorts, flirty dresses and open-toe sandals. I also think breathable material like cotton, silk and microfiber, done in soft, cool pastel shades. Essie’s Global Color Designer, Rebecca Minkoff, muse for the new Essie Resort 2016 Collection was India. The incredible mix of colours, landscapes and traditions inspired this 4 piece collection that’s filled with pink, blue, mint and apricot shades.
“It’s a dream come true! I’m going guru and visiting beautiful India. I’ll be doing the delhi dance like a Bollywood star and visiting the markets to add to me taj-ma-haul. It’s so beautiful, I’ll never want to leave. Can’t I nama-stay the night forever? “
Essie Taj-Ma-Haul is the feeling when your shopping artistry becomes a wonder of the world. This lovely marigold apricot is such an unusual colour and unlike anything I’ve seen before. Although it may look a little dull and unappealing in the bottle, this unique hue is absolutely beautiful once applied.
Essie Dehli Dance is playing your song while you slip on this silky sari pink and hit the dance floor like a Bollywood superstar. Pink is my-go-to nail polish shade and this pale pink crème is absolutely stunning. It’s the perfect spring shade that reminds me of strawberry milkshake.
Essie Going Guru is a mint lime that is a fashion nirvana. This pale pastel green just screams springtime and would make the perfect colour for Easter morning. It’s happy, cheerful and instantly puts a smile on your face.
Essie Nama-Stay the Night is the perfect shade for when you’re up all night. When you’re with this energetic goa blue, sleep will be the last thing on your mind. Another favourite from the collection, it’s an intensely bold, in your face, electric blue.
