Essie - Watermelon
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend - I just got back from a weekend of sailing and sunning (a bit too much sun - my shoulders are quite crispy) and wanted a bright, summery nail colour to suit.

Essie Watermelon is an Essie classic - and I think there needs to be a bottle of it in every nail polish collection!

Watermelon is a deep reddish pink creme that is bright, warm, and playful - definitely reminiscent of a delicious slice of watermelon on a hot day. It's a sophisticated pink. It's still fun and summery, but not an obnoxious hot pink. It's almost like a classic red but the added pink tones make it more lively and day-friendly. Mmmm juicy!

This Essie polish is one of the best Essie formulas I've tried so far (and I've tried quite a few Essies...). The formula is creamy and smooth, almost a perfect one-coat-wonder! It doesn't pool or run. There are no streaks and no overall funny business here. Applies like a dream! Like most creme Essies, it chips fairly quickly. This can be lessened with a good base and top coat.

If you are looking for an interesting, slightly off beat summer pink, you can't go wrong with this one!
