It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Essie, the huge selection of colours and my absolute favourite brush and formula so I was excited to try the new Retro Revival collection because in theory it’s a relaunch of some of their greatest hits. Another reason is that their Retro Revivals (this is the second collection by that name) have a bit of Vegas theming. The golden star print emblazoned on the caps is designed to resemble the original logo of the Stardust casino in Las Vegas.. why? you might be wondering, because Essie actually LAUNCHED right there. I love the story behind the founder deciding on this spot, she knew that the girls working the casino tables would have their hands on show constantly and so they would potentially by her best customers as well as her best advertisement. We have ALL asked (or at least wanted to ask) what someone is wearing on their nails, you really can’t argue with her logic. Genius really. Since we have a return trip to vegas booked I was hoping to find a shade from the collection to be my holiday nail colour and now I’ve swatched them all I’m spoiled for choice! The bright and sparkly Prima Bella obviously appeals but I think I’ve settled on Bold Beauty on my toes (which I’m wearing right now, actually) and Pure Chiffon ( beautiful shimmery cream) on my fingers.. for now anyway.
