I don’t feel like 2015.
And suddenly January 2015 feels like long time ago, now as we just start another new month. Okay, it was this collection from Essie that makes me hit reality.
As long as I know, Resort collection from Essie usually launch in middle of year, when summer in Europe. That’s why they usually has bright neon color, to compliment summer, beach and brightness (correct me if I’m wrong). However Resort 2015 launched very early and their collection is range in basic color. I guess many of nail polish lover has coral (Stone n Roses), soft brown (Cocoa Karma), blue purple (Suite Retreat) and pearly white (Time for Me Time). Being a new nail polish junkie, I grab this collection because it seems fit into my daily use. I bought the sweet mini set btw, not full size one. I’ll review one by one though from now on I can tell you Cocoa Karma is my very favorite. I’ve uploaded some not-so-good-picture of it in my instagram : @taniaasvs.
This mini bottle contains of 5ml of product. Since the bottle is long and square, you got illusion that you get more than you really is. But it’s okay, it’s really modest and chic.

Sweet! I love how Essie put a small sticker name under the bottle, it does help you recognize which are which.

Essie’s brush is long and wide. Some said even regular size’s brush is too small for them, but I think brush in this mini size (because I don’t know if theres difference between regular and small size brush) fit me nicely.

Time for Me Time is pearly white, with slight pink iridescent in the bottle. On me, it’s pearly pinky white and much less shiny than it’s appearance in bottle. It’s really nice to daily basic and gives you something more than just plain white.
The texture is just right and spread well. It’s also self leveling. But Time for Me Time doesn’t mean to be opaque polish, with 2 layer I am still could see my nail line and all but it much better than OPI Bubble Bath who gives me very low coverage.
Lasting power is good, it could stay 5 days without chipping on me, the same as OPI polish. Here I use 2 layers and Innisfree Eco Quick Dry Multi Coat on top.

On expensive side
Thought it's not my favorite color but i appreciate it's texture and hey, it doesn't look so bad on me right?
