Essie Summer: North Folk Collection Swatches
Grab your sunglasses, beach towel and a little SPF this summer and get ready to sail your blues away with Essie's new North Folk collection.
This summer Essie introduces two releases for summer - North Folk and The Neons.
North Folk is a small collection of three fun, yet watery shades that take you back to those lazy summer days.
Bravo, Bravo, Essie! And another Bravo for the fabulous blue colaboration this summer! Essie must of been listening, this collection goes out to the nail polish lovers that have been longing for unique shades such as, Starry Starry Nights and Dominica Green.
Overall, everything about this collection is amazing, including the dreamy application. All my swatches were done with two coats and no visible problems.
Check em' out.
Greenport - a minty blue green creme that's gorgeous. A lighter version of Misa's Dirty Sexy Money, but not an exact dupe.
Sag Harbor - Wow, this is HOT! Described as a powder blue shimmer with grey undertones that's amazing. Not quite a "traditional" duochrome, but it definitely changes from gray to powder blue in different lighting.
What you can't see, the gorgeous gray undertones that's more apparent in real life.
Shelter Island - a bright sky blue creme that's not too bright, but not too dull.
Essie's North Folk collection is now available at Essie, Beauty Salons, or online at Head2Toe.

I just picked these up at Ulta. I almost didn't get sag harbour because to me it doesn't look blue/grey. Its looks grey to me. Your picks look different than the product in the bottle irl.

Hi Holly - I picked up the North Folk Collection at head2toebeauty.com. I emailed Transdesign a few weeks ago and they were unable to confirm when they were going to get this collection in stock. I checked with Head2Toe around the same time and they let me know they would receive them around the end of the month. Hope that helps.

Hi brooklynbabe, Yep! A very pretty collection. Hi Holly, It looks like Trans Design isn't going to have them for a awhile. Can you order from Head2Toe? Looks to be Head2Toe is the only one online :) Hi Bella, I really loved them all! Hi rmcandlelight, Yeah, it's a tricky one that's really hard to capture. Although, I really love the gray appeal to it :) Hi SW, Thanks so much for chiming in, your a doll :)

Hi Polish Earthgirl, No, their completely different. It sways towards Misa's Dirty Sexy Money except a tad lighter. I'm going to get a comparison pic up soon. :)
