Nail of the Day: Essie In The Cab-ana

I'm back today with another color from Essie's 2013 Resort Collection, a bright turquoise cream called In The Cab-ana.  The moment I painted this on my nails, I thought of how much better they would look holding a mimosa on an exotic tropical beach with crystal clear water and white sand... 

*pulls up travel website, checks one-way airfare to Fiji... sigh*  

But really, this color is the epitome of an exotic tropical beach blue.  It is just the right balance of blue and green, and perfectly bright.  And as my complexion deepens from "Casper" to "Freckles" this summer, it will continue to look even better.

natural light, 2 coats

The formulation of this was quite a bit thicker than most Essie polishes, and it was slightly hard to work with as a result.  Some nails were completely opaque in one coat, but I always do two because I prefer the "gel-ish" appearance of a thicker polish coverage.

The Essie 2013 Resort Collection is available in stores and online at Ulta.com!

Speaking of vacations, anyone have anything fun planned?
