Not long ago, I showed you the four new gorgeous hues of the essie resort 2015 collection. The colours are so intense, creamy and perfect that they were just begging to be part of a nail art look. When my fellow blogger and friend, Bella from Seizethenail contacted me to ask if I wanted to create matching, twin manicures with the essie resort 2015 collection, it was a no brainer! Using three of the polishes: suite retreat, stones ‘n’ roses and cocoa kharma, we designed matching manicures.

Bella came up with the concept of stripes, and then we both went from there….

Bella’s design, as always is flawless:


I love rich the colours look in her photos.

My design using the essie resort 2015 collection turned out great as well, though I didn’t quite get the intensity of the colours like she did.

For my index and ring finger I first polished my whole nail with stones ‘n’ roses (peach). Once dry I used tape to add cocoa kharma (brown) to create the stripes. Finally I used a stiping brush to add suite retreat (indigo) on either side. After applying a topcoat, I then placed the studs.

Until next time,
