Essie Spring 2014 Collection

Essie Spring 2014 Collection

8 Reviews

Jump into spring fashion with a playful palette of spring colours. There’s a shade of pastel to suit every style. Vintage denim for a relaxed look or creamy pistachio for an unexpected, elevated chic alternative to pink.
Shades include:
Hide & Go Chic – covetable azure blue
Fashion Playground – plucky pistachio shimmer
Romper Room – Pale Tea Rose Pink
Spin the Bottle – Semi-sheer nudeStyle Hunter – laser sharp crimson
Truth or Flare – Vintage Blue Denim

What we say:
I seldom buy Essie nail polishes as they are quite expensive if I take into consideration just how often I buy nail polish (way too often!). The Spring 2014 collection though is one that I would definitely invest in. If you are a fan of blue nail polish, this is one collection that you will definitely want to get your hands on. I tried the shades Fashion Playground, Truth or Flare & Hide & Go Chic.

There are also nude shades in the collection, but the blue are what really stand out. The formula is super easy to work with, & besides Fashion Playground, only requires 2 coats to reach the perfect opacity.

The polishes dry to a high shine finish & complement just about any outfit. These are definitely 3 shades that I will be wearing all Spring/Summer & I will be carrying Hide & Go Chic into winter with me.

“Cute as a Button”

Ayelen Hamity

It’s very hard to believe one can go wrong with Essie. The colours are fun, original and have a modern edge to them making it absolutely impossible to resist standing in front of an Essie’s counter for hours. (Not to mention the names are fun to read!)

For a long while I was drawn to the subtle colours Essie was providing i.e. those insipid, girly tones that make any outfit seem just a tad more elegant. One of my personal favourites is “fiji” which has made it to my nails time and time again. That being said, I felt it was time to step it up a notch and try a colour that is more… Out there?

Due to my light bronze skin (being of South American decent) I usually favour the coral colours. They tend to compliment my golden undertones. That being said “cute as a button” was an absolute winner. Easy application and lasting about a week without chipping (assuming you have applied a top coat), this new fun colour made it to my nails time and time again while I was on holiday at the coast.

Despite not looking in the least bit like a hippie (in the midst of the coffee bay sun tanners), I couldn’t resist looking down at my strawberry toes. This is a must have if you’re looking for a way to make your look more exciting. My only concern is that the colour does not match everything one and I don’t feel I will wear it to my next meeting. But I’ll be sure to reapply it as soon as the boring aspects of life have subdued.

Essie are one of the more pricey nail polishes but well worth the money, I believe, when you take into account the formulation that glides onto your nails effortlessly and the long lasting staying power. Essie usually offers a stunning array of shades to choose from, and the Spring 2014 collection is no different! I wish I owned every shade on offer!
