This is big news people.
REALLY big news.
Do you think you can handle it?

Well, here it is: I like an essie polish.
Heck, I LOVE this essie nail polish. "Sunday Funday" is coral perfection in a bottle; everyone needs this in their lives.
My usual hangup with essie has nothing to do with the colors; I think many can agree with me that essie has one of the best color selections around in terms of nail polish. "Sunday Funday" absolutely stuns in the color department, that was no surprise. It's a straight up coral, plain and simple; doesn't lean on the orange side nor the pink side and shifts from warm to cool toned depending on the light.
The short and sweet version: this color will look gorgeous on anyone's nails.
Color drooling aside (let me wipe that up real quick for you), my real hangup with essie polishes is the formula. From my experience they tend to be sheer (needing 3+ coats [which is ridiculous]), bubble easily because of the required layering, and are extremely watery (making your cuticles look a flooded mess).
"Sunday Funday" is a beautiful exception in essie's line of polishes; it is opaque in one coat (I did two coats because I'm anal and absurd), thick (almost a gel-like consistency), and supremely smooth. I have absolutely no complaints here and hope that essie takes note!! THIS is how an eight dollar nail polish should look and feel.
Isn't that a gorgeous polish?
The shimmer laced throughout is extremely fine and catches the light beautifully. Plus, like said, the color itself is just gorgeous. You can see in the photos that in direct sunlight it takes on a bit of a peachy-tangerine color while in the shade it looks nearly identical to the Revlon lipstick "Strawberry Suede" (sadly discontinued; may it rest in peace). I can't recommend this polish enough and think I need to go out and buy about 1,000 bottles so I'll never run out (so get your hands on it before I do!! You've been warned...).
Oh, and by the way, the polish and top coat on my index finger is Revlon's Moon Candy in the shade "Satellite". Umm... let me just say it's nothing special and I can't really recommend those things.
Stick to "Sunday Funday".
Have you tried any polishes from essie's Summer 2013 Naughty Nautical collection?
Love 'em? Hate 'em?
