Essie Summer 2012 Collection

The weather has been so gloomy lately, especially on the continent and in the U.K. ( I am in London right now on business and haven’t seen the sun in at least a week), so The Blonde and The Brunette thought we would try and cheer everyone up with Essie’s new 2012 summer colors plus provide some style inspiration. These are simply yummy bubblegum colors that work perfectly with easy summer accessories from simple string bracelets, glittery sandals, great shorts, and shoulder bags, and of course, with colorful swim wear like the Banana Moon one piece suits or a teeny weeny bikini which inspired the sparkling cauliflower blue of “bikini so teeny”.

Astrid and I both agree,  besides trying the blue, cascade cool, a creamy sweet dusty pink and off the shoulder, a bold hot pink, are both perfect for brunette’s and Kathryn put in her vote for all tied up, a rustic bronze with a golden shimmer, fear or desire, a bright orange crush or mojito madness, a  fun loving lime green, are all great for blondes. Each $8. Check the Essie site for retailers. They are not yet being sold online.
