Essie Resort 2016 Favourites: Preppy Perfection

Essie Delhi Dance Going Guru resort 2016 dalybeauty

Two polishes from the Essie Resort 2016 Collection really caught my eye. The perfect bubble gum pink of Essie Delhi Dance and the minty fresh green of Going Guru. When I grabbed them to swatch I realized they were the perfect preppy combination of green and pink that I love!

Pop your collars!


Delhi Dance is a bright pink cream with a slightly chalky consistency. It’s so bright and flattering against my medium-fair skin, but probably could have used three coats. I did two and there is a bit of streaking on a couple nails. Love it though!

Two coats of Delhi Dance – hot bubblegum pink!

Going Guru is a minty green shade, the kind that Essie does very well! Again, the formula is a tad streaky, so three coats would probably give full coverage. Still it’s an awesome colour of green and I kept looking at my hands when I was wearing it. It makes me think of the green Fire King Jade-ite dishes from the 50s. Love!

Two coats of Going Guru and no top coat. A third coat would make it opaque.


These are really great shades. I have similar shades, but I don’t have a bubble gum pink as bright as Delhi Dance, and my greens are definitely more greyed out than the vivid Going Guru. I also think these would make amazing summer pedi shades!
