Gables Style: Smooth Sailing


By Ginger Harris of Electric BloEssie-Naughty-Nautical-Collection-Summer-2013garella

Summer is just a few weeks away, but the colors of the season have already arrived at GBS The Beauty Store. Essie’s Naughty Nautical collection of nail polish recently docked on Miracle Mile. Being a Floridian, where wearing flip-flops is practically part of the state uniform, I anticipate a wave of excitement surrounding the six new hues. Where previous summers have been bolder than bold, this latest collection hinges on pastel, adding a hint of shimmer to capture the sun’s rays just so. In the boat-themed offering find candidly named hues like Full Steam Ahead, a pale purple, Naughty Nautical, a stunning teal, and a lime with neon tendencies dubbed The More the Merrier. For those who shy away from lacquering their tips in out-of-the-box shades like blue, there’s something about Rock the Boat that may have you singing the hues accolades after all. Chalk it up to the light, inviting, powdery finish of the shade. The standouts, however, are the pop of fuchsia in The Girls Are Out and the coral goodness of Sunday Funday. Add a little of it to brighten up the remainder of your weekend. Anchors away.

GBS The Beauty Store is located at 308 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables; 305.446.6654
