For this Spring, Essie's Global Color Design Rebecca Minkoff was inspired by the vibrant hues of India.

Essie Resort 2016 Collection
Delhi Dance:
This is a very pretty neutral pink with a decent formulation. The polish is rich and smooth but there was a bit of patchiness. I got away with two coats but there were a few sheer spots.
Delhi Dance, two coats with no top coat.
Going Guru:
A soft pastel grass green cream, Going Guru is fairly pigment for such a light shade. However, the formulation is slightly runny and I experienced some patchiness and pooling around the cuticles.

Nama-stay the Night:
One of my faves from the collection, this is a rich medium sky blue. The formulation is rich, pigmented, and super smooth. I used two coats for the swatches below.
Nama-stay the Night; two coats with no top coat.
Hands down my fave from the collection, Taj-ma-haul is a gorgeous subdued creamy apricot. The formulation is absolutely divine- super pigmented and rich.

I was inspired by the fun India theme so I decided to do a little stamping using a MouYou London plate with Taj-ma-haul and Nama-stay the Night.
