After being disappointed by the recent Essie Shimmer Brights, I was pleasantly surprised to see the pretty shades of the Essie Summer 2016 collection. I bought the four pack of these, so I don't have all of them Let's take a look at these pretties!
Essie Coconut Cove
This one is a white, but not really white, but not off white. I'm not sure how to label the whiteness of this. It's...not white. The formula of this not white is really awesome. Although, it's not 100% great at self leveling, it's really pigmented. This is two coats with top coat and I dig it.

Essie Berried Treasures
This berry shade isn't unique but the formula is pretty fantastic. It's a one coater and I love this color!

Essie Viva Antigua!
Yes! I am in looooooove!!!!! This one is a tiffany blue...but wait there's more! This one is great because it's not like all the other tiffany blue crèmes. It also has a silver flakies that actually do not disappear on the nail. My swatch is two coats plus top coat.

Essie Loot the Booty
I saved the best for last. This is a cobalt blue packed with iridescent flakies. Oh man, I love this one. This is also a one coater. I used a base coat with this because I was afraid of staining and I attempted to apply this carefully.

Here's a closer look. This did stain the hang nail I was hoping to hide.
And I had to take a picture of the bottle.
I don't know if you can tell by my descriptions or not, but I really like the Essie Summer 2016 collection. The formulas were great and the added flakies made it far from boring!
