Today I'm Wearing #12: Essie Cascade Cool



Hello Lovelies! Today I wanted to show you a new Essie polish that I have been wearing the last few days. It is called Cascade Cool and is part of the new Essie Bikini So Teeny Collection for Summer 2012. Cascade Cool is a creamy, medium bubblegum pink, but with purple undertones. I feel that if Essie's Splash of Grenadine had a pink-toned little sister, this would be the color. 

This color is subdued & girly, yet still has enough punch to be playful for Summer. Also, something about the cool tone of this nail polish is super flattering & manages to make my hands look a little tanner than they are.  

 Unfortunately, the formula was a little thin & streaky. However, with 3 coats the color was completely opaque.

Essie's Bikini So Teeny Collection for Summer 2012 really has some beautiful, unique shades. I plan on going back for Bikini So Teeny, a pretty periwinkle blue, and Off the Shoulder, a bright warm-toned hot pink (a girl can never have too many pink polishes).



Have you tried any of the new Essie Summer 2012 shades? 



Thanks for reading!


Lots of Love,

Louise

  2. Love that colour but sheer nail polishes are the bane of my life, I get so impatient waiting for the different layers to dry, and right when I think they're fine my entire hand gets smudged!

    1. I feel your pain Alice! I have zero patience when it comes to waiting for my nails to dry either! Have you tried Seche Vite Top Coat? It's a life changer- your nails are completely dry & super shiny in 2 mins, no joke!
