Essie - Smooth Sailin'

Essie Smooth Sailin'

I did not think much of this polish when I saw the press release of this Essie Resort 2011 Collection, but once I saw swatches of Smooth Sailin', I know I must have this polish.

Smooth Sailin' is a purple-ish blue shade with gorgeous silver shimmer particles. It is quite a unique polish, very pretty without going over the top. I cannot stop staring at my own nails all day!

Although Smooth Sailin' reminds me of Essie Coat Azure, it is of a darker blue than the latter. I might do a swatch comparison later. The formula of Smooth Sailin' is excellent. I have no trouble applying it, and it is fully opaque with just two coats.

This manicure is done with one coat of SV base coat, two coats of Essie, and a coat of SV top coat to finish off.
