Essie Resort Inspiration

Posted by

I had such a great time with my last nail polish post, I thought I would do it again. Essie’s new Resort Collection (available May 1) reminds me of some of my favorite rooms.

Couldn’t you see the Marjorie Skouras turquoise chandelier in an island space? Essie’s “Turquoise and Caicos” brings to mind a relaxing island retreat and I think my breakfast room from House Beautiful would certainly fit right in.

The campaign detailing of this space is so relaxing. I would love it to be my beach house.

 Essie’s “Playa Del Platinum” conjures up the ideal locale of such a retreat.

 And if my beach house had a porch, these swings would be the perfect place for my afternoon siesta!

 This yummy purple paradise is on my list of favorite glam retreats.

I’ll take a “splash of grenadine” on my toes and in my drink while resting in this beautiful boudoir.

Moorish, Moroccan, whatever the inspiration for this gorgeous respite, the result is a luxurious one.

Essie’s “Lapis of Luxury” is the perfect compliment.

And what if you brought the entire resort collection together in one space?

Pure perfection…by Jamie Drake, of course!

    Tobi, after your Chanel green I noticed EVERY young “with it” girl on TV was wearing a version of this shade. I mean, why not? This post is delightful with the interiors and the polish. Too cool. xx’s

    Love this post. Paying closer attention to my nail color the next time I am at the salon. It just might inspire that next room.

  13. Love the colors – so vibrant!

  14. OMG I need the turquoise and caicos – it is so pretty! and it is my logo color so it would be such a great little promotion accessory 🙂

  15. that just makes me realize how i need to spice up my nail polish…..and actually take off the polish that is currently chipping as we speak!

  16. Although the room may be too cute for my taste, the sight of the color azure always eases my eyes. Looks great over all.

  17. […] designer Tobi Fairley posts a delicious amount of eye candy. I love that she was inspired by a new line of electric fingernail […]
