My Essie Resort 2011 Picks!

Essie Resort 2011 was one of those collections that I looked forward to for *months*! I found out every little tidbit about it, scoured pictures for advanced shots of the colours - everything. When I was finally able to purchase it (on eBay, by the way - still haven't seen it in stores) I carefully selected my colours. I chose:

Essie Da Bush

A *very* close cousin to my new lovah - OPI Stranger Tides. Da Bush is ever-so-slightly darker and has a hint more blue to it, compared to ST's yellow. I am now in love with both of these pistachio shades! I have to hand it to Essie though - their application was better. A normal person would just need one of these...since I'm so smitten, I'm keeping both!

Essie Your Hut Or Mine

This is a colour I unexpectedly loved! I usually struggle with pinks - something about them typically makes my yellow skin look sallow and dead. But this lovely little gal is warm enough for me to pull off, but not bright enough to look overly Barbie! It has some gorgeous golden shimmer as well, that I completely failed to capture. Oi.

After the months of coveting, I'm really thrilled with these two polishes. The other two were not for me, and that's OK! In the end I have two more polishes joining my collection that I simply *adore*.

Now...I wonder what Essie has planned for fall? I haven't heard even a whisper! Have you?
