Essie Smooth Sailing Swatch

 This gorgeous Essie shade is called Smooth Sailing.

I like the creamy formula, but one coat looks a bit patchy, so I  needed two thin coats to get a lovely opaque finish. I love the colour as well. It is a dusty blue shade, but purple at the same time with a little bit of shimmer to it. I am not an expert in describing colours, so here is a swatch.



  1. What a gorgeous colour - love the added shimmer!

  2. I think this color is soo pretty

  3. So pretty makes me want to paint my nails with some essie! since i am in need anyways I just might do that today! :)


  4. Such a pretty shade! I've seen a few polishes lately that resemble this and I think their lovely. xo

  5. your suggestions are great, bold and versatile.

  6. It's a really nice colour and i think it's one of those colours that i lack in my nail polish collection. I quite like how there are subtle shimmers in it too which makes it a little bit more unique to other plain polishes that are this colour. I really need to get myself some Essie polishes after i've finished my exams!!
    Thanks for sharing~xx


  7. Such a lovely colour :) x

  8. I really love this colour. I think it can probably fall into a pretty similar category to OPI's I Don't Give a Rotterdam and perhaps Zoya's Skylar. But definitely a favourite :)
