Essie Smooth Sailing

This is Essie Smooth Sailing from the Summer 2011 Braziliant Collection. It is a beautiful periwinkle blue. It has plenty of silver shimmer through it, which looks like very small flakes. In the bottle the shimmer gives off just a hint of light pinkish purple and blue, but this doesn't translate well onto the nail. Though the colour is unique and pretty I am not a fan of it on me, I found it was aging on my pale skin. The formula is smooth and easy to use, and is opaque in two coats. Any uneven areas are my own fault :) I am used to using the wide OPI brushes instead of Essie's thin brushes. Whenever I use a different brand of nail polish I always love coming back to OPI's easy to use brushes. I have to say though, every Essie nail polish I have used has been top notch on formula and I am a fan of their bottles :)

I think it looks good on you! This kind of washed out color is always interesting!
