Summer 09: Essie Cute as a Button Swatches
Happy Friday, woot woot! Can you believe we only have one month of summer left? Yep! Vampies look out, here we come. But, before we step over to the dark side, I wanted to bring you two last Summer collections that were hiding under my fall excitement.
This Summer, Essie's given us a variety of color to choose from. North Folk gave us a reason to sail our blues away with three oceanic shades, The Neons - rock out with four brights perfect for those tootsies and Cute as a Button, a mixture of six flirty hues perfect for your feminine side.
Overall, a nice selection of six, soft and cute colors that are surprisingly wearable! The application was perfect. Most colors are three coaters, with the exception of a couple.
Check out the swatches.
Not Just a Pretty Face, a semi sheer nude with a dash of pink. A lighter, more beige version of Essie's sister, Eternal Optimist. I was worried that Not just a Pretty Face would clash with my skintone, but it didn't!
Lovie Dovie is a fun, bubblegum pink creme that's opaque in two coats. Girls, If you don't own a classic candy colored pink, go grab you some Lovie Dovie.
Lucious Lips reminds me of another semi sheer pink that I love, Orly's Confetti. Although, Lucious Lips may be a tad bit pinker with better pay-off.
Cute as a button is a creamy mixture of coral, pink and orange that's really pretty! An excellent summer color, especially for your tootsies!
Funny Face isn't your typical hot pink cream. It's mixed with a tad of purple, which makes this a deeper hue of pink - slighty magenta! Loves it!
Chubby Cheeks is a pumpkin spice creme with a dash of pink undertones. Sally Hansen's Nasturtium is just a tad bit more orange compared to Chubby Cheeks. A great fall color heading into October!
Essie's Cute as a Button collection is now available at Essie, professional salons and E-tailers! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

There's some pretty colors in this collection. I like Cute as a Button and Lovie Dovie. But I can wait to order them. Nothing I want desperately.

I totally agree with your take on Funny Face and Cute as a Button. I recently reviewed them on my blog and although they are safe colors, I think they're very wearable!

I just ordered "cute as a button" from one of our fav e-tailers. I'm excited and can't wait for it's arrival! I really like coral colors.
