Every year I look forward to the Essie Resort collection. It comes out at the end of January/early February when winter is dragging on and the weather is dreary. Being that it’s a resort collection generally the colors anything but dreary. The 2014 Resort collection is no exception.
Find Me An Oasis is an almost white pale blue creme. Or an ice blue, as Essie is calling it (appropriate since I used this as the base for my Snow Day manicure!). The color is lovely and soft yet still very flattering. And the formula, for a color this light, isn’t bad. It’s a definitely three coater but the formula is not runny or difficult to work with.
I love pale blue polishes and I have quite a few in my collection. This has more white than any of the other pale blues that I own. That being said, Julep Jessica and Sephora by OPI Havana Dreams are similar and are not dupes but are close.
The name of this polish is quite appropriate as I could definitely use an oasis! It actually snowed in Charlotte last night and this morning (this happens almost never…) so the entire city shut down. It might be safe to say I went a bit stir crazy after I had my encounter with a deer. Ah, winter in the South! But I’ll take it over Ohio winters any day.
The Essie 2014 Resort collection should be popping up in stores soon (if not already). In the meantime, Find Me An Oasis is available on Amazon and Ulta.com. The mini set (which includes all 4 polishes from this collection) is also available on Amazon and Nordstrom.com.
