Essie Sunday Fun Day Nail Lacquer
Essie Sunday Fun Day Nail Lacquer

Essie Sunday Fun Day Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright, tangerine-crush coral with soft shimmer.” It is a warm-toned, coral-orange with flecks of white sparkle. It was mostly opaque afer two coats of polish, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it was easy to apply. Dior Diablotine is darker, redder. Chanel Lilis is more orange. MAC Vivid Effect is less warm-toned, cream. See comparison swatches.

Rock the Boat Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “French blue with a hint of periwinkle.” It’s a cool-toned, lavender-blue with a subtle silvery shimmer. I tried applying this three times, and it was uneven and streaky each time I tried, which was a real shame since this is a rather unique color from what I’m aware of. The consistency was on the thicker side, and it didn’t flow evenly across the nail. I thought it might self-level but no suck luck. Chanel Sky Line is metallic. Cult Nails Princess is bluer. Zoya Skylar is much darker. See comparison swatches.

    Essie does corals so well!

  2. OOO Sunday Funday! Keep telling myself I don’t need ANOTHER coral nail polish this season, but I’m falling for it HARD!

  3. I need Sunday Fun Day. But then again, I’ve never met an Essie I don’t need ;)

  4. Ria

    Oh good god rock the boat looks atrocious! Shocking for Essie.

  5. Sunday Fun Day is so cute!!!

    Rock the boat works very well on me, it’s a very lovely shade I think and application was perfect unlike some other pastel nail polishes which are so difficult to apply, in that case I add a glitter polish because wearing them without would be really impossible.

  7. I’m a sucker for light/baby blue polishes, but the ones I have found have all been streaky and this one looks the same. Sunday Fun Day is pretty though.

  8. How do you feel Rock The Boat compares to Bikini So Teeny?

  9. Is there any obvious difference between Rock The Boat and Bikini So Teeny?

    Sunday Fun Day looks awesome. I’m not one for shimmer, but the flecks are really pretty.

  11. I love the coral! I also really like the purple in the bottle, too bad the formula isn’t the best.

  12. Laryssa

    I love Sunday Fun Day! The best nail polish of the summer.

  13. Sunday Funday wil llook fab with a tan!

    Rock The Boat looks like a straight dupe for Essie’s Bikini So Teeny, which was released a while ago but is still in stores. Bikini So Teeny applies well, too!
