Essie Resort Collection 2010

Greetings nail polish lovers! I finally got around to the Essie Resort Collection for 2010.

I love the colors and the names for this collection!

Turquoise & Caicos - a turquoise/aqua creme. 3 coats. This sure does remind me of Turks and Caicos Islands. Absolutely gorgeous.

Splash of Grenadine - a purple/pink creme. 3 coats. Grenadine is a red syrup used in cocktails. Nothing really similar to the polish though.

Playa Del Platnium - sandy gray creme. 3 coats. Playa = beach in Spanish, Platnium = silver/gray? So haha creative

Lapis of Luxury - ocean blue creme. 3 coats. Lapis is a type of blue stone. So yet another creative name. Though this blue totally reminds me of the ocean more than lapis.

The colors are so summery. I love all four. Application of course is flawless. I love Essie nail polishes. The names just makes it a keeper!

------------------OFF TOPIC----------------------------

I just need to rant a little. Work is starting to really get on my nerves. I feel like a slave there. For those who don't know, I work at a medical office as a receptionist/medical biller. And seriously, they act like we are in an attorney's office. We're not allow to speak to each other. Occasionally we do but when we "get out of hand" my manager would go ape sh*t on us. And come on, we are all human, we make mistakes. One mistake there and they'll be on your a$s FOREVER. Oh here's another thing, we're not allowed to wear open toe shoes (flip flops, sandals) nor sneakers. We're not allow to wear jeans or sweat pants. We're not even allowed to step out! Is that even legal?! We all have to order delivery for lunch (or bring your own lunch) It's just absolutely ridiculous in my opinion. Might as well chain us to the desks and duck tape our mouths. It's not even a big medical office. It's just a regular doctor's office that specializes in cardiovascular diseases. I would quit but I need money for my nail polishes. I just can't WAIT to graduate and quit this damn job. Just six more months.




So that is all I have for today, since I have off tomorrow hopefully I'll be able to get some swatches done.

Love to all!


  1. i love Turquoise & Caicos + Splash of Grenadine ! :D
    Aww, that doesn't seem like a very fun job :/


  2. I'm sorry about your job being so stressful and NOT fun! I work in a medical office as well (as a medical assistant, but I help out where I'm needed), and we're not like that at all!! Actually, I think the docs are a little too lax sometimes, but it's their ship.

    As for the swatches, I like Splash of Grenadine. Playa de Platinum is totally blah to me.

  3. one of my fave collections from essie ever! look beautiful on you. ;)

  4. I love this collection! My favs. are Turquoise & Caicos, and Splash of Grenadine. They all look great on your nails.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your job stress. That's never fun. :-( *HUGS*

    By the way, I just started a nail blog. I would love to have you follow, if interested. :-)


  5. I only really like Lapis of Luxury and that's because it's a blue and blue is my fave colour. The other colours just seem so unusual and hard to wear. Your job sounds awful! :(

  6. I love this collection, I have all four!! :D
    Sorry your job is so horrible, I'm tired of my job too! It's crazy they won't even let you out for lunch though! :(

  7. I'm sure that's not legal, you should look into workplace law or unions or something :(

  8. Beautiful.
    I have all my life wanted to be a medical secretary and I think now I may have changed my mind. Hope it improves for you.
    I'm not sure who has or hasn't entered BUT I'm having a brand new giveaway on my blog.
