Lapis Of Luxury is a beautiful blue that reminds me of summer skies, Essie describes it as a dreamy ocean blue, which I can totally see. The formula is great, very smooth however it needs three coats to be completely opaque. I however was very impatient and only applied two coats, so the finish wasn’t as flawless as I had hoped it to be. Anyways it’s another beautiful color of Essie’s Resort 2010 collection and definitely worth buying if you don’t already have any similar dupes.

Yayyy I’m so happy to have finally gotten my hands on the new Essie Resort 2010 collection! The colors are amazing and I couldn’t resist buying Lapis Of Luxury, Splash Of Grenadine and of course Turquoise & Caicos. Now I’m totally in love with Turquoise & Caicos and have been wearing it ever since I got it. The color is really gorgeous and it will definitely be my to go color for this summer!
Almost every blog has already posted these promo pictures, but since I’m super excited about this collection I figured it wouldn’t hurt posting them again. In my opinion Essie has been bringing out one amazing collection after the other and this Resort Collection is no exception! I’m especially stoked about Turquoise & Caicos and Lapis of Luxury and can’t wait until the collection is available in May.
The four new summer colors are:
- Lapis Of Luxury – a dreamy ocean blue
- Splash Of Grenadine – a playful magenta pink
- Playa Del Platinum – an elegant and sheer sandy gray
- Turquoise & Caicos – a flirty and pretty tropical aqua

After seeing the promo pics for Essie’s Art Of Spring collection I really wanted Lilacism, it’s a pastel-ly lilac that is perfect for spring and it reminds me of one of my favorite colors Do You Lilac It? by OPI. Anyways the color is gorgeous, however as you can see in the picture, the application was not so great and I would have needed three coats for a non streaky finish.
