Essie's Summer Polishes Make A Serious Splash

Usually when we hear the words "swimsuit shopping," we have a feeling of panic (we're not ready!), followed by guilt (did we really need that second scoop of ice cream?). Well, Essie's summer collection is looking to take some of the dread out of the experience with a new batch of polishes inspired by the search for the perfect swimsuit. The rainbow confection comes in hues that are perky, bright, pearlescent, and pastel, so there's a shade to fit every personality.
While in our minds nothing will ever top the neon collection from summer '09, there's plenty to love in this colorful lineup. Click through to check out the polishes in all their lacquered glory.
