Put your best manicure forward in the bikini season with the seductive new tones comprised in the newest Essie summer 2012 nail polish collection and boost your confidence in the process.

A season of bold yet super fab color palettes lays ahead. If the spring season was focused around lighter tones to make the transition from the winter season easier, the summer months are reserved for bolder, even more interesting tones. Essie is undergoing a similar path with a new collection which revolves one of the most fun symbols of the hot days to come: bikinis.

Though finding the perfect swimsuit is not an easy task for everyone, the brand assures us it's a lot easier to find a flattering nail polish shade:'Whether you prefer to strike a pose poolside or relax at the beach, the myriad maillot varieties provide endless inspiration for this season’s haute couleurs. Wherever you may fall on the swimsuit spectrum, there’s a color for it – and it’s invariably Essie.'

The main objective of the palette is not to be strong statement, but to complement a gorgeous look: “Intensely saturated brights and cocquettish pearlescent pastels make a beautiful statement without covering up your impeccable style. Exuberant sky blue casts a spell with charming playfulness. Blazing summer – hot pink pushes the limits, while intensely bright orange takes you past the point of no return. How much gorgeous can a good man take? Shimmering molten bronze tests his mettle and surely bends him to your will. Wherever you find yourself this summer, take the plunge with color that declares: life’s a beach!". Choose between these six seductive shades:

Bikini so Teeny — lustrous sky blue

Cascade Cool — frosty, shimmery pink

All Tied Up — molten bronze

Off the Shoulder — hot pink

Fear or Desire — bright orange

Mojito Madness - lime


The newest collection of the brand is set to be launched in June 2012 and will retail for $8 per bottle.
