Essie Camera

Yes. I am here with yet another coral polish. I understand I have issues. But coral is just so pretty! This particular coral is from Essie’s Summer 2012 Poppy-Razzi collection. I saw the display over the weekend at CVS and just couldn’t walk away without 2 of the 4 polishes.

Camera is a gorgeous bright pink leaning coral creme. When I say bright it’s not in your face neon bright like say SinfulColors Pink, but it is bright.  Brighter than the swatch indicates.

The formula was good. It’s highly pigmented and has a slight jelly feel to it. The formula reminded me an awful lot of OPI Big Hair…Big Nails. I used 3 coats and did have a slight visible nail line, but to the naked eye it is not near as apparent as in the swatch. This dried to a semi matte finish, so a shiny top coat is definitely required!

Overall I’m really happy with this nail polish. I like that it’s bright and fun but not so bright that it looks kind of crazy. Especially on a pale person like me!

And just something kind of random….I don’t love the Essie retail bottle. But, what I do love is that the name of the polish on the bottle actually matches the nail polish color. I can’t be the only one that likes that, right? If you have no clue what I’m talking about there is a picture below the jump!

  1. I really want this! I literally went to all the CVS stores in Boston looking for it and it’s completely sold out 😦

    And I totally agree with you on the Essie bottles. I like the salon ones better, but the color coordinated name sticker is really cute!

    • Wow, it sold out that fast? Essie always has such small displays. It’s annoying! I hope you can find it soon 🙂

    • I just started seeing it pop up at CVS stores around me – though I haven’t been to CVS as often as normal in the past few weeks. Might be worth checking again.

      • For some reason, they started putting this collection out really early here and I’ve only seen one bottle of Lights (the only one I don’t want) since then. Maybe later this week I’ll go searching again. If not, I’m just going to order them. I get free shipping anyway 🙂 Thanks!

  2. New follower, I’m in love with your blog. I literally just bought the OPI Big Nails Big Hair polish today at Ulta because it was on sale…I almost always buy polishes on sale. You’ve gotten me into corals just from looking through your blog!

    • Welcome! Big Hair…Big Nails is one of my favorite corals. I’m (obviously) a bit coral crazy…I’m glad to hear it’s rubbing off!

  3. I also like that they names on the tops match 🙂 this color is really pretty – it’s soo you.

  4. Nice!
