I believe this is the last polish from essie’s summer 2015 Peach Side Babe collection I have to review. That means there was only one disappoint from the 6 piece collection; Private Weekend. Because Salt Water Happy is perfection.
essie describes Salt Water Happy as a sugar-sweet Atlantic blue. Well, I don’t know if y’all have ever seen the Atlantic ocean but let me tell you….it looks nothing like this polish.
That being the case I would describe this as a light, baby blue creme. No, the color isn’t revolutionary or unique. But, the formula is absolutely fantastic. I used just two, incredibly easy coats in my swatches. A feat for a color as light as Salt Water Happy.
You can pick up the Peach Side Babe collection at Ulta.

Ok, y’all, I freaking LOVE this polish! Pret-A-Surfer is from the essie 2015 Peach Side Babe collection. It took a backseat to Sunset Sneaks and Chillato because those two polishes are right up my alley. So this one is a bit of a surprise favorite. essie describes Pret-A-Surfer as a marine blue but depending on […] Continue reading →
If you follow me on instagram, you know my I have about 3 interests lately: Ryan Adams, my new (& constantly evolving) balcony garden, and my ankle. Which two of these things are related!? Obviously the ankle and the garden… though, it’d make a much more interesting story if Ryan Adams was involved with either my […] Continue reading →
It’s no secret I’m totally swooning over Orly Key Lime Twist. Because of that Key Lime Twist has spent a lot of time on my nails. But, I got a new set of dotting tools and I was itching to give them a go. And that’s how this manicure happened. Because Key Lime Twist is […] Continue reading →
A few days ago I was buying a fancy new hose nozzle at Lowe’s when the cashier could not stop talking about my nail color. While I love talking nail polish with just about anyone it at least confirmed that my obsession with Chillato isn’t totally crazy. Chillato is from the essie summer 2015 Peach […] Continue reading →
Flash tattoos. The trend now that the weather is getting warmer that I can’t seem to get away from! While I like the idea of flash tattoos they’re not exactly practical for everyday life. So I decided to take the idea of flash tattoos and turn it into a manicure. Most of the flash tattoo […] Continue reading →
