The Italian Job | Essie's Resort 2017 Collection

Essie's Resort Collection for 2017 is inspired by the beautiful Italian Amalfi Coast; think glittering waters, sun-soaked buildings and the pinks and purples of the flowers decorating the coastline. I think the collection puts a sophisticated take on typical summer shades, adding a bit of Italian chic to the usual pastels and brights we see in resort collections. This makes them a bit more wearable and versatile, with at least three of the four shades easily transitioning into the Autumn months too. Let's take a look...

Ciao Effect

A lovely dusky lavender with muted grey undertones - this colour is a bit more sophisticated and versatile than your usual candy pastel lilac. 

Strike a Pose-itano

A striking, minty aquamarine - I feel like this is Mint Candy Apple for grown ups as it's a little more subdued. The formula on this one is a bit more streaky than the others, but with two coats and a steady hand it's all good. 

Resort Romanza

This deep sunset pink has tones of raspberry red and peach, it's a lovely bright punchy shade for summer.

Sorrento Yourself

My favourite shade from the collection, a rosy terracotta. It looks great on fingers and toes and will go with just about any outfit. But don't mistake it for a nude; it's earthy pinky tones make it a little bit more unique.
