Eek! This is the latest edition to my Essie nail polish collection, I am officially obsessed. When I was younger I used to collect things like Me To You bears and Polly Fashion dolls, now it is just Essie nail polish. But the idea of having lots of the same brand thing but in different styles or colour, that I can line up and display beautiful together just makes me happy, and Essie nail polishes are just so beautiful!
This nail polish is one from Essie’s Summer 2015 collection. When I first saw it in Boots the other day while shopping for a present for my friend I knew there was no way I was going home without it! It was actually the only shade from the new collection that I was really drawn to. The shade is called Saltwater Happy which I just think is the cutest name for a nail polish ever!
As you can see it is a beautiful pastel blue shade but unlike one that I have seen before. I think that it has a slight lavander tint which makes it appear a bluey lilac in some light. It’s pastel but not too pale, yet still manages to be subtle at the same time. I am just so in love with this shade and haven’t stopped admiring my nails since I first put it on.
I have a few blue shade from Essie now which makes me very happy as I can line them up like this and take lots of WeHeartIt style photos! I have the classic Mint Candy Apple which I think was one of the first Essie nail polishes I ever got. And I still wear this one all the time, especially when Spring arrives and I dig out all my pastel shades. In the middle is the latest edition Saltwater Happy. And on the end is Parka Perfect which is my more Wintery blue shade. This has a grey tint and a light shimmer and is always a lovely alternative to glitter and berry shades at Christmas time.
