Essie – Viva Antigua! – Summer 2016 Resort Collection

Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is a gorgeous one from Essie’s Summer 2016 Resort Collection. I feel like Essie has put out a ton of collections this spring and summer. I hadn’t been having very good luck with Essie this summer, but this one has changed my attitude. No tip wear, no chips and no bubbles!

Essie Viva Antigua! is a gorgeous aqua with gold shimmer. Formula was really good. I had a bit of a problem with picking up the first layer as I was applying the second coat which was resulting in bald spots. I was able to cover it all up and it leveled off beautifully at 3 coats. I really like this one a lot!

Essie Viva Antigua!, 3 coats plus topcoat.

In the lightbox…

Outside in the sun (most of the sun pictures turned blue so I tried to choose only the green ones)…

Outside in the shade…

Inside with indirect natural light…

Inside with flash (deepened the color)…

Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

The polish in this post is from my own collection and was purchased by me.
