Chanukah Night #4: Essie Smooth Sailing

Welcome to Night 4 of my Chanukah Manis: Silvery Blues and Wintery Hues!

Swatching this made me want to redo my Top 15 Polish list of 2011.  Smooth Sailing, part of the Essie Braziliant Collection from this summer, totally went under my radar.  Thankfully, Nory saw that I had quickly jotted it down on my wish list and picked it up for me!  How did I ever live without this beauty in my stash??


A gorgeous cornflower blue creme packed with silver micro shimmer (my favorite!), Smooth Sailing applied thickly and smoothly in two coats.  I am absolutely blown away by how beautiful this color is; I would call this an improved version of Zoya Caitlin.







This post is a bit picture heavy for me, but this photographs so beautifully, I couldn't choose which ones to post.  I highly recommend anyone who loves this shade of blue pick this up STAT.  The shimmer really makes this so much more unique than the other cornflowers we've seen pop up this year.


Happy fourth night of Chanukah!

  11. I'm think it's part of their core collection now (although I can't be sure), so hopefully you won't have a hard time getting it!
