Essie Suite Retreat COVEREvery year I look forward to the Essie resort collection. It’s always a bright spot in January which otherwise is a fairly slow nail polish month. But, I have to say, only Suite Retreat caught my eye from this year’s Resort collection.

Suite Retreat is a medium blue leaning purple creme. The color is gorgeous and makes me dream of warm, sunny days. But, this certainly isn’t a groundbreaking or super unique color.

The formula is fantastic. This is almost a one coater but I did use two coats in my swatches.

Depending on the lighting Suite Retreat can look a bit different. Because of that I included swatches from my light box as well as in direct sunlight.

The 2015 Resort collection should be hitting soon. Currently, Suite Retreat is available online at There is a mini set for this collection that includes all 4 polishes that is also available at

    This is really pretty! Apparently Target is having a buy two, get one free sale on Essies, are there any that you would recommend I get? I don’t have any since I don’t like to pay full price, so if you can recommend any must haves, I’d appreciate it! 🙂

    Oh, what a pretty! looks great on you. Reminds me of Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like, but a muted version. Essie has done a nice job with this.

What do you think?
