Essie Resort 2012 collection: She's Picture Perfect and No More Film swatches and review

Hi ladies! I hope you've all had a fantastic week. I don't know about you but I am SO glad it's finally Friday! I have some quick swatches for you of 2 of the shades from the Essie Resort 2012 collection today - She's Picture Perfect and No More Film. Both are gorgeous colours and I highly recommend adding them to your collection!


What they say:

"This apologetically pretty collection takes its cue from screen idols like Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly - women as perfectly suited for 20th Century Fox as they are for 21st century color. With adoring fans at her heels and essie on her toes, she's always on stylish step ahead of the crowd.

This suite of pinks and purples in eye-popping pastels and deep jewel-tones are a charming kiss of color to sire even the sleepiest sleeping beauty. Micro-glitters create a delicaate shimmer, and cream colors defy categorisation with rich undertones that are anything but superficial. This collection lets you dive into colour in a way that distinguishes you from all others, and awards you the starring role. There's no mistaking it, you were born to play this part."



She's Picture Perfect is a blue toned lilac creme with subtle purple and pink shimmer through it. It's so pretty! It reminds of me of one of my old favourite Essie polishes Baby Cakes but darker and more blue and with an improved formula. 2 coats is pictured.

No More Film is a wonderfully opaque dark violet creme. I love these dark blurple colours but they are a pain to photograph unfortunately! In some lighting it looks dark blue but it's definitely violet. My swatch pictures show the colour accurately while the bottle pics are too blue. 2 coats is pictured but you can definitely get away with just 1.

Overall: Another great collection from Essie! I really love that they're consistently including interesting and colourful shades to their collections like blues, purples and greens instead of the old pinks and reds. I adore pinks of course but I do love my colourful polishes! I enjoyed the formula on these 2 shades and No More Film in particular was a dream to apply. They dried quickly and to a high gloss finish.

Details: The Essie Resort 2012 collection is available now from Myer and selected salons for $18.95. They can also be purchased online from Beauty Stop Online.
