These are so pretty for summertime…

For those who don’t have time to squeeze in any vacation hours this summer, Essie offers up an affordable trip for your nails. The Essie “Braziliant” 2011 summer collection is comprised of six jewel-toned shades inspired by the tropical nation. “When the temperature soars, I embrace the heat as the perfect excuse to play with fiery colours,” founder of the brand, Essie Weingarten explains.

The six shades in the new Summer 2011 Collection include hues of fiery oranges, bold pinks, a topaz blue and a sea-foam green.

The collection is available now with a suggested retail price of $9.99/polish.
