Essie Resort Collection 2011

I’m having a bit of a love-affair with Essie at the moment, the colours are just what I want and they are available in these fabulous little sets of 4 minis for little more than the price of one bottle. I picked this set up from beautybay.com for £11.95 (plus there was a 15% off discount code in honour of the bank holiday, so it was actually even cheaper).
This is the Essie Resort Collection for 2011, meant for summer but I think the colours translate quite nicely into being suitable for Autumn too. The collection is safari-themed, as you will see from the names… 

L-R: Fair Game,  Your Hut or Mine, Lion Around, Da Bush.

Fair Game: A shimmering, slate colour with blue and grey tones.
Your Hut or Mine: A rosy, muted, pink with warm shimmer tones.
Lion Around: A powdery, baby pink with pearly white shimmer.
Da Bush: A creamy, white, khaki shade.

Essie Resort Collection 2011: With Flash

Fair Game was the initial stand out to me, and the one I chose to apply first. But I think all four colours work really nicely together.  Which is the stand out to you?

Top L-R: Lion Around, Fair Game
Bottom L-R: Your Hut or Mine, Da Bush

What you think of mini sets? Bit of a gamble on colour combos or a good way to try out before you buy…??

    Your Hut or Mine is the definite stand out for me.

    I love the mini collections, and all things Essie in general. I hadn’t been excited about this collection though till I saw this post. Now I want!!
