Essie Braziliant (Smooth Sailing)

Smooth Sailing With Siver Shatter

This is my favorite shade of blue nail polish to date.  It is a unique color and I can't say that I have seen anything quite like it. Of course the formula is great, it is by Essie after all.  It has a hint of silver shimmer in it, and I actually feel pretty relaxed just looking at the color.  This is the only color I have from this collection (right now) but I have seen all of them and they are gorgeous.  From what I can tell, they all have a little bit of shimmer.  I got my bottle at Target, and it looks like the colors are going pretty fast.  In fact, they were completley out of Meet Me at Sunset.

Brazilant is a very bright, in your face orange.
Super Bossa Nova is a darker fuschia.
Too Too Hot is a vibrant red.
Meet Me at Sunset is a less intense, more dark version of Braziliant.
Absolutley Shore is more like a mint green than sea foam green.
Smooth Sailing:  is a dark periwinkle blue with subtle silver shimmer (it is a little difficult to describe).  It looks stunning in natural light.

I am hoping to at least get one or two more colors; I am leaning towards Absolutley Shore and Braziliant, just because it is totally different from something I would normally wear.
 All of the shades are perfect for summer and are worth checking out.

To make my nail polish last longer, I use Essie's Feed Me base coat (my nails look a lot better, too) then I apply two coats of Essie's No Chips Ahead top coat.  I let each coat dry for about five minutes, then I let the top coat dry for 45 seconds and spray my nails with Sephora by OPI Quick Dry Spray.  After letting them dry for about 10-15 minutes, I let ice cold water run over my nails, or stick them in a bowl of ice water.  This is a trick my mom taught me and it helps prevent chipping.
Smooth Sailing also looks great with a thin layer of O.P.I. silver shatter over it. think this is the prettiest shatter by any brand. The China Glaze Crackles are nothing to brag about.
