With summer in full swing and the delivery of the new Essie Summer 2018

Collection I just had to share it with you. Not only is the quality of Essie polish fabulous, the colors are fun and can be mixed and matched for a multitude of looks.

I usually get a bottle or two of a collection and take them with me when I get my manicure and pedicure.

Names left to right: Sweet Souffle, Baguette Me Not, Blue-La-La, S’il Vous Play, Fondant of You, Eclair My Love.

I’m looking forward to getting my nails done this week!
