Smooth Sailing is a cornflower blue packed with shimmer. You've all seen this one a bajillion times.
Basecoat: NailTek Foundation II (1 coat)
Color: Essie Smooth Sailing (3 coats)
Topcoat: David (1 coat)
Smooth Sailing might have the best application of any Essie I own. No streaking, easy to control, no bald patches. Beautiful. This was something I found odd, though - you can see in the middle that I have some VNL, after three coats. It's actually visible in real life, too.
I picked up two other polishes from the Braziliant collection. I hope they are as much of a joy to work with as this one.
