My obsession with milky nude sheers continues, but it occurred to me that (A) I haven't really blogged Essie in a while, and (B) one of the few good things about summer is Essie's summer resort collection. Would you believe that while I own all four polishes in the 2010 Resort Collection, I've only worn ONE of them? Ridiculous.
God, 2010 was like a lifetime ago. But I do remember the day I dragged B to Ulta with me to buy this during an Essie B2G1 sale, back when said Ulta store was the ONLY Ulta in Richmond. (Now there are four. FOUR. I live near one location, and another one is on the way to his house. >___< )
Anyway, Playa del Platinum looks mega-lobstery on me. It isn't. I'm a bit more yellow.
Three coats with SV. Ew, why do my cuticles look so dry?! I promise they weren't.
I think Playa del Platinum is as close as I want a sandy nude to border on greige on my skin tone. For a creme, I think this is pretty complex! It goes from typical sandy nude to greige with a pinch of green, as you can see in the last picture. Because of that green tinge, I wasn't sure if I would like it on me, but after wearing it for two days, I didn't want to take it off. I don't know if that grey/green tinge would work for everyone, but ... it's pretty boss.
The formula on this polish is not the best Essie has ever done, but it's not the worst, either (which I think is something that can be said for Resort 2010 in general). Three thin-medium coats will get it opaque; however, it doesn't self-level, so I needed to break out the SV for this one. Dry time was quick and I had minimal tip wear after two days. I'd like to wear this again for maybe five days to see what happens.
As I said, this was part of the Essie Resort Collection for 2010. I don't think it's a core color any more, although I could be wrong about this. At any rate, it's quite ETF online if you want it.
That's all for today. Do you own any of Essie Resort 2010, or Playa del Platinum? Would you want to try it? Isn't it fun dragging your significant others to places like Ulta? And would you like to see the other polishes I grabbed with the B2G1 deal on the day I bought this?
If you haven't read Anna's post, go do it! Thanks for joining us, and perhaps I'll break out one last summertime milky sheer next month. ;)
