Essie Smooth Sailing

Good Morning guys! There is some kind of community garage sale going on in my neighborhood today...it has successfully killed my plan of sleeping in after going to bed at like 3 am lol. I feel like I need a gallon of some kind of energy drink! I guess it at least gives me a jump start on the day!

Today I have for you guys a polish from Essie's Summer 2011 Braziliant Collection. I haven't heard too much about this collection, just happened to find the display at Rite Aid the other day. I ended up picking up 2 colors Smooth Sailing, which I'm showing you today and Braziliant which is a vibrant orange with a pink shimmer. The rest of the collection wasn't very exciting IMO.

Smooth Sailing is a periwinkle blue with a silver shimmer. If Sew Psyched had a blue cousin this would be it. This color is fab, I liked it in the bottle but absolutely love it on the nail. The formula was also really good, Essie has been hit or miss lately and this is definitely a hit. I used 2 coats of Smooth Sailing for the photos below!

  1. Oooh, I love this. I think I've seen this in a display and passed right over it. I'm definitely getting it now.

  2. I need this! Have to find the display first :)

  3. Holy cats!!!

    I thought I could pass on this, but no way!!!

  4. Ohh I think I need this!! It's so pretty! And I LOVE the name.

  5. The color is so cute ^_^ I want some Essie polishes too! :D

  6. Haha about the community garage sale. Are you going to check it out?

    I can't wait to get my little paws on this polish. I'm hoping DBF finds it at Beauty 35 while he's in the city today... :D

  7. WANT! :D This is the first Essie I've been psyched about for a while. Great swatch, thanks for posting! :)

  8. That is gorgeous! I have been meaning to go back and get it since I put it back on the shelf lol. Can't wait to see Braziliant :)

  9. This is super pretty! I have been finding myself drawn to a lot more blues lately.

  10. Great color! I may just have to purchase this!

  11. What a pretty colour! Can't wait for this to be avail in my area!

  12. This is pretty with all that shimmer. Love it.

  13. you know what I first thought when I saw smooth sailing? It looks just like "lapis of luxury", just with silver sparkles added. I don't have it yet to compare, but I will definitely get it :)
    I'm more of a creme-fan, so I like lapis of luxury better than the silver sparkle in smooth sailing, but since I'm an absolute blue-lover, I will buy it nevertheless ;))
    Along with the two blue misas from misas summer collection ^^ hehe. I love blue :))

  14. @cilucia

    I thought about checking out the garage sales but I was too lazy and tired to go look lol

  15. This is gorgeous! Do you know if it's similar to RBL Catherine H?

  16. @Stephanie

    Catherine H has a darker base color and multicolored shimmer :)

  17. How funny I bought the same two colors smooth sailing & braziliant the other day. Both colors are so beautiful that I don't even want to put any kind of nail art on them!!! So thinking water marble time hehe

  18. hi, someone can tell me please what number is ESSIE SMOOTH SAILING? and generally how can I find the numbers when I have the name? thanks from Italy...!
