Essie Nail Polish nail polish swatch nail polish swatches

Essie – North Fork Collection, Summer 2009

Thursday, 25 March, 2010

I’m late, I’m late…oh well. I was fortunate enough to score these colors long after the collection stopped being seen on shelves. I can definitely see why! I honestly thought I wouldn’t like any of these colors. WRONG! Totally fell for them in a big, bad and ugly kind of way.

This color was the star of the collection, the one that sold out the fastest. It was also the one that was hard to get long after the collection stopped being on regular retail shelves. I was fortunate enough to score the whole set from an e-tailer. I can see why this color sold out and out of the three, this was my least favorite. However, this color did look good on me. I preferred the other two.

This color was very deceptive in the bottle. I thought it was a blue gray while I was indoors, but once outside it really wowed me even more. Sadly, due to the overcast day, you can’t see the very faint shimmer that runs through it – it is absolutely GORGEOUS. Easter is coming up and I’m having a hard time deciding which color to wear – this or Shelter Island, as you will see below.

I kept this color on my nails for TWO WEEKS! That’s a record for me. Why? Because I loved it THAT MUCH. It is slightly hard to find, but it’s one that is well worth it. However, if you can’t find it an extremely close dupe is OPI’s No Room For The Blues.

And just to refresh your memory, here are the comparison swatches again.
