Color Me Brazilliant Collection

Essie just released this beautiful color, Smooth Sailing, along with several other gorgeous shades just this month. This color is from the Essie Summer 2011 Color Me Brazilliant collection. Now if you were to search the Essie website, it states this color will be available soon so I was pleasantly surprised to find it at my local Walmart when I was there earlier tonight shopping for groceries.

Some have described this polish as periwinkle blue in color while others have said it is more of a cornflower shade of blue. Personally I think it is a combination of both colors and with minuscule flecks of pink, blue, silver and even purple bits of glitter mixed in the polish it almost has a luminous quality to it. The polish, once applied, leaves a bumpy almost gritty feel to the top of the nail. So the texture, depending on how thick or thinly you apply the polish can feel really gritty. Also, I found that when I was applying the polish it had a watery consistency and tended to glob (for lack of a better word) but I was still able to apply two coats with minimal smudging. Although additional drying time was necessary due to the runny consistency of the polish.

Overall, I think this color is really unique and I am happy with my purchase. I may even go back and purchase more colors from this collection. Here are some more pictures I took of me wearing the polish. I hope you enjoy them.

Walmart had them for $7.75 a bottle.
