Essie Spring 2011: Coat Azure

Essie Coat Azure (2 coats)

Blogspot can be pretty awesome sometimes. You can officially see the new mobile version of Right on the Nail from your smartphone! Instead of seeing a scrunched up version of the blog, you can now see a picture with a short excerpt from the post. So far I'm liking it! Have you seen it yet? What are your feelings?

While waiting for the Essie Braziliant collection to hit stores (it definitely feels like a summer collection!), I ended up picking up Coat Azure from the spring collection. It is a dazzling dusty blue polish with a shimmer finish. It's just one of those polishes that looks great on and even photographs well! I love this one! While I haven't been a huge fan of Essie in the past (can we say blah colors?), they have really been stepping up their game. Perhaps the acquisition from L'Oreal wasn't such a bad thing after all. The application and formula was spectacular as well, barely needing the 2 coats shown here.

I really like Coat Azure and bought it from a photo of the bottle only. Super suprised that you don't have the Essie Summer 2011 Brazilliant collection out by you. It's been out at our Rite Aide for a good 1.5 months here and we get next to nothing early, or even on time for set release. I bought Brazilliant out of it. The few there on display were already major picked over with the bright fuchsia/purple one totally gone as well as one other. Brazilliant is a great orange shade for my summer toes. I have been gravitating to Essie Geranium and OPI I Ate Berries in the Canaries a lot for my pedis of late. Orange is so in this summer (along with pink corals)...but who said I ever went with the trends?

I was tired of too many blues until this one hit - I had to have it even if I only used it 2-3 times I decided. Ends up because it looked so fresh I have don my toes at least 10 times with it since it came out. It's a good blue for me in that I don't feel the need to rush to change my toes/fingers if have this on and am headed for a conservative function that a more way out shade I might wear just won't do. This one gets a huge recommendation from me.

Hi beachgal! Thanks for all of the comments (I'm a bit behind on replies, as you can tell)! I often get my Essie polishes at Ulta with their monthly coupons to save a little money. For some reason I have never seen the Braziliant collection there. I really hope it is there next month, and it probably will be, because my store seems to be a bit behind the times.

I've been loving bright colors for my toes, too! As always, thanks for checking out the blog.
