I’ve always had a soft spot for pale pink colours. My all-time favourite nail polish is OPI’s Mod About You, a very pale pink colour that is so flattering and eye catching, and best of all, makes your hands look tan. So when I first laid my eyes on Essie’s Cascade Cool (be still my fluttering heart!) I knew I would automatically love it.
Cascade Cool is described as a creamy, sweet dusty pink colour and I would have to agree, except that it packs a lot of punch. The shade is neutral enough to pull off wearing at the office, but packs enough pow to dress up any outfit. I think this is a great neutral pink colour, not as wild as Off The Shoulder, but pretty enough to wear anywhere. This shade is extremely suitable for a wedding or a grad/prom, it’s a real girly colour.
The one thing I noticed about this colour that I didn’t about the others from the collection was that after two coats it actually left my nails quite glossy. I of course applied a top coat, but from the shininess of it, it kind of appeared as if I already did when I finished the second coat.
I’ve really been loving all the colours in this collection and honestly, if you have the money to spare, I would pick all of them up. I still have two more to go so maybe I’ll still change my mind, but honestly, bright colours are so in right now and it’s so fun to rock bold, fun shades during the summer months that they will come in handy year after year (pink is always in style anyways).
Have you tried Essie’s Cascade Cool? If so, what were your thoughts?
