"Chubby Cheeks" from Essie Summer 2009 Collection

Essie summer 2009 collection is my favorite nail color collection for this summer season. It features six shades from pink nudes, bright pinks to corals. I simply like every color in this collection for its great wearability and girly personality.

After trying the colors at a local beauty store, I decided to take home "Chubby Cheeks" and "Not Just a Pretty Face" because they both look more natural on my nails.

"Chubby Cheeks" from Essie Summer 2009 Collection

Chubby Cheeks is the deepest shade in this collection. The official website describes it perfectly as a deep coral with hints of red in a crème finish.

The color is on the warm side, and it has a rich, gorgeous pigment. The color payoff is beautiful! Two coats of this nail color are enough for a rich and glossy finish. To add more intensity and drama for night occasions, three coats give a gloss lacquer finish with a more intense red pigment.

The smooth formula and the brush make this color glide on smoothly and evenly. Most of all, the drying time is relatively fast, and the color lasts well.

Overall, this subtle and feminine coral shade not only is great for casual wear or for office environment, but also can be layered to increase the red pigment suitable for night occasions.
