Essie Summer 2021 Collection & Live Swatch


Essie was kind enough to send me this collection so today I have their Summer 2021 Collection to share with you. 😊  

I have been waiting super patiently to get my hands on this collection here in Canada (stalking the Beyond Polish* Canada website daily 😂) and when I finally got it, I was very surprised to see that 2 of the polishes were different than the version of the collection I've been seeing online and through their website.

So the collection I've been seeing online has Zest Has Yet to Come (yellow) and Feelin' Just Lime (green), but the collection I received has Check Your Baggage (yellow) and Off Tropic (green) instead. I was a little thrown off at first so I was trying to do some research but didn't really find much. If I ever find the 2 from the other version, I'll definitely make sure to come back and update this post. But for now, let's take a look at the pictures for the 6 polishes I did received. 😊

First up is Get Your Grove On, "a warm bronze nail polish with large gold shimmer pearls". This polish has a beautiful metallic type finish and it dried smooth and shimmery. Shown here in 2 easy coats and no top coat. 1 coat was really pretty if you wanted a more sheer look. 

One of my surprising favourites. 💛

Tropic is a forest green creme. The first coat went on a little streaky but the second coat made it perfect. I wasn't sure about such a dark colour for summer but honestly, it has such a rich tone that reminds me of moss or trees or just anything nature in general. 😁 This is shown with no top coat. It was so shiny that the nails are reflecting random things - just fyi. 😊

Juicy Details is "a saturated, bright blue nail polish". I feel like I have to say that this blue is a true blue - there is just no other way to describe this gorgeous colour. 💙 Shown here with 2 coats and no top coat.

Pucker Up is "an electric pink nail polish with refined tone-on-tone pearl." This polish could be done in 1 coat, but I just have it shown in 2 with no top coat. I don't normally care for the pearl type polishes, but this one was so beautiful - I have no idea why I was drawn to it. It was mesmerizing to swatch. 💕

Check Your Baggage is a soft yellow creme. I'm not usually a fan of yellows because I find that most of them tend to pull more brown/orange which doesn't look great on me, but this one was a really pretty soft yellow. Shown here in 2 coats and no top coat. I think it looks better than most yellows on me. 😂

And finally we have Tangerine Tease, a saturated bright orange creme. This shade of polish just makes me smile. It's just so bright and fun. 😎 Shown here in 2 coats and no top coat.

And here is the live swatch video:
