One of my favorite things about meeting up with other nail polish bloggers is our swaps. There are so many swap boxes I go through, see a polish, and think "OMG Why would someone not want this one?!?!". I know many of the girls in our blog group have said the same about some of the polishes I wanted to do away with. It's funny to see how my "trash" (ok not really trash, but you get the point), is someone else's treasure and vice versa. I found this Essie beauty in a swap box, and I couldn't believe someone would not want this! That's ok though, it found a good home!
This polish came out in the Essie Braziliant summer collection in 2011. This was the same collection one of my hands down favorite of all time polishes, Smooth Sailing came out in. I've always had my eye on this one, but never got around to purchasing it. I was glad I found it at the swap. This gorgeous color. Braziliant is bright without being a neon, and it has a creative edge with the pink shimmer. The formula was nice and easy to work with. This is definitely a cheerful and fun shade for spring and summer. No complaints here!
