Just Another Mani Monday: Essie Braziliant

Essie’s new color collection for summer 2011 is nothing short of Braziliant. And the namesake color of the collection, Braziliant, is gracing my tips this week. It’s a hot orange – really, the picture doesn’t quite do its boldness justice – with a touch of shimmer. It has a beautiful pearl finish and is very unique as far as oranges go. It’s a perfect color for summer and is really complementing my faux, self-tanned skin right now.

Generally, there are one or two colors in a collection that stand out, but I’ve got to say that every shade in Braziliant isĀ blowing me away!

  • Super Bossa Nova – an upbeat bright fuchsia
  • Absolutely Shore – a soft, sea foam green
  • Smooth Sailing – a breezy, lavender blue with a reflection of pearl
  • Too Too Hot – a sizzling, rich red coral
  • Meet Me At Sunset – a vibrant, deep orange

What’s catching your eye from Essie’s Braziliant collection? And what are you sporting on your nails this week?

  1. I like it! It’s definitely summery for sure. Which makes me wish it was actually summer, and not 47 degrees outside right now.

    1. Oh no — 47 degrees?! We’re in the 60s today in Chicago, so I feel justified in my summer color. But it has been the coldest spring I can remember. Hope it warms up for ya soon!

  2. I’m actually giving my nails a break right now and strongly considering picking up the revlon buffer you guys raved about a few weeks ago. I think mine quit on me!

  3. These colors are great. They look like they give good coverage too. Sometimes these types of colors don’t cover well and you need multiple coats, which often leads to chipping
