Today I want to share with you In The Cabana from Essie's Resort collection 2013. When I first saw swatches of it over at The PolishAholic, I fell in love with the color and needed this in my life. So I patiently waited for it to show up in German drugstores.... and I waited... and waited... At the beginning of this month there still was no sign of the Resort collection so I began searching the internet for when it will be released. To my horror I found out that Essie will not release their Resort collection in DM drugstores. So what then?? While browsing some German beauty blogs I came across a post that said Essie's Resort collection will be available at some online shops only. I could have ordered it online from a US etailer, but I simply couldn't justify the shipping costs for one bottle of polish. So gladly I found the collection at Cambree.de, which is one of my favorite online shops when in comes to nail polish and make up brushes. Prices are reasonable and shipping is super duper fast (and no, I have not been paid for writing this ;) ). But now, let's finally have a look at the beauty that caused me so much distress, shall we!?
In The Cabana is a "self-assured aqua azure" creme, as Essie describes the color. It is a really bright and fun color. It may not be the most unique shade in the world, but I don't have anything like it in my collection. Even if I had, being the blue lover that I am, I would have picked this one up anyway. I applied two coats for full coverage and they went on without any effort. The version you get from German online shops is the salon formula with the small brush. Honestly I do not know if there is a difference in the formula between the bottles from the drugstore and online shops. I do however like the smaller brush, especially for my narrow pinkie nail.
How do you like In The Cabana? For me, it was completely worth the wait and effort :D I have been eyeing First Timer from the same collection, too. I am still deciding if I should get this minty green, too. Thoughts?
Thanks for stopping by!
