Essie - Resort Fling (Resort Fling, Resort Collection 2014)

In order to stay with the holiday pleasures for a bit longer, I opted for the name sake of Essie's Resort Collection this year: Resort Fling.
It is a jummy crelly and the colour I would describe as a peachy salmon or coral cantaloupe...if that makes any sense? For fun I added a thin layer of OPI I don't Speak Meak (which seems to be an overstock re-release of Nicole's Here Kim's The Sun. Karen Falcon of Imabeautygeek.com wrote a big blogpost about that fenomena here)
Just look at this juicy and fruity beauty of Resort Fling (don't mind the chip on my pinky nail.....it was there after I did some very hard sleeping and drinking coffee, no polish can take that, right?!....):

This was three very easy applied coats of syrupy goodness, it levels out perfectly (no streaks, no bald spots: just perfection). The wear was a tiny issue, BUT it could be that because I wore NO NAIL POLISH AT ALL for almost four weeks >ieks, I know<
Perhaps I should soak my nails in acetone for a while ;-)

China Glaze Ray-diant (Prismatic Chroma Glitters Collection 2012)

YEAH, back again!

That implicates our holiday is over..... >sad<
We went to France, Switzerland and Italy this year, we had a lovely, lovely time. 

Impression:

Wild waters in Switzerland.

Sea monsters in Italy.

Building sand castles.

Even the ladybugs were in matching tent colours...

Wearing OPI Got The Blues For Red on the toes.

Lago di Como, like a saffire in the sun.

The ferry on Lago di Como.

Hanging around in the trees.

Place Stanislas in Nancy (France not Reagan...)


OK, polish time!
This was one of the last polishes I wore before the holiday: China Glaze Ray-diant. It is one of the six Prismatic Chroma Glitters in this collection and it is crazy blingy in the sun.
Ray-diant is a fabulous mix of micro glitters and slightly bigger glitters in a transparent base. The micro glitters are in this case golden and green (thus giving a slight duo chrome effect in switching between green and gold), the slightly bigger ones are silver and multi coloured....I don't think there are any holo glitters in the mix...it is just crazy glitter on it's own.

It was hard to catch the green shift.....but is is there....trust me!
This was two easy coats with two layers of top coat to make it nice and smooth.
I wore it for days and it felt very beach appropriate and radiant >hardy har har< :-)
