Essie Brazilliant

I ended up ordering three of the new summer colours from Essie. Brazilliant, Super Bossa Nova and Smooth Sailing. I didn't think i was going to order any...but after seeing swatches of Smooth Sailing I needed them!
In all honesty now i have them in person...I probably would have survived without them.

Brazilliant is the collections namesake and its a very bright orange. It's fabulous to see a bright orange that isn't a neon...and even better it has a subtle pinkish shimmer. Hot! it was odd though none of these polishes dried very shiny. they all dried rather satiny? Did anyway else find that? Definitely need to use a top coat.

Smooth Sailing with an accent of Color Club Tattered in Gold

Smooth sailing is why I needed these three polishes. it's a gorgeous blue with the tiniest flecks...or the largest shimmer? Unfortunately in the winter light it didn't thrill me. I'll have to put it away again for summer.

Super Bossa Nova
Super Bossa Nova was my Pink mani for Pink Wednesday yesterday. It's a hot pink. Very sexy, but don't forget the top coat. A kid in my class last year had a little sister called Nova. Just reminded me. She had a brilliant imagination (the kid in my class not the little sister). When I asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up she told me a dalmation. She drew her head on top of a spotty dogs body... 7 year olds!

Anyway lights out for heads hurting and my eyes are feeling very heavy.



  1. Braziliant and Smooth Sailing are my favorites of the collection ! I need those so badly ;)
