Sparkly water, soft sand and beach waves courtesey of the salty air are the thoughts that swirled through my mind as Essie's Smooth Sailing was painted onto my nails last Satuday. This periwinkle shade was released with five other shades as part of Essie's Braziliant line. If you look closely, you can tell the shimmer factor was awfully high and to be honest, I think that's what truly garnered all of the accolades. Wear time was typical given that I play with paper plans and type on my computer's keyboard all day. However, I did mange to chip my polish accidentally in the shower - one nail scratched another - end of story.
