Essie has been hitting it out of the ballpark for me this year—first with the fairytale-like Bridal Gel Couture collection created in collaboration with Monique L’Huillier and then the Wild Nudes wardrobe filled with must-have classics and unique neutrals.
Now, the Parisian-inspired Summer 2017 Collection has stolen my heart with six pretty hues, each inspired by the City of Love.
The shades include Sweet Soufflé (iridescent white), Baguette Me Not (soft lilac), S’il Vous Play (foiled lavendar), Blue-La-La (pastel blue), Fondant Of You (sparkling apricot) and Éclair My Love (candy red).
One glance at the colourful collection and you’ll be daydreaming of macarons, street corner cafés and the Eiffel Tower skyline (okay now I really want to go back to Paris)!
It’s a bit hard to see in the photos, but Sweet Soufflé has a subtle hint of blue iridescent shimmer that is absolutely gorgeous and gives the typical summer white a little je ne sais quoi, making it my favourite of the bunch. S’il Vous Play is definitely the star of the collection, with its opaque metallic finish that is right on trend. I think I’ll also be wearing Éclair My Love and Blue-La-La on my toes a lot this summer, too!
The Essie Summer 2017 nail polishes retail for $9 each and will be available June 13th at select retailers and online at ulta.com.
