Essie Spring Collection 2014

The Essie Spring Collection has finally hit stores in Canada, and I had been eyeing a few colours so when I saw the display at Shoppers Drug Mart a few days ago I scooped them up for $9.99 each!

The collection is composed of 6 shades that range from, nudes, to pastel, to bright shades! The two that stood out to me were a true mint green called "Fashion Playground" and a very brown toned nude called "Spin The Bottle" - the other shades in the collection are gorgeous, but I just thought that I had colours that were very similar to them in my huge collection.

Essie describes "Fashion Playground" as a plucky pistachio green with subtle shimmer - It is a true mint green, however the shimmer does not translate on the nails. The formula was amazing and my nails were completely opaque with just two coats. This is a more minty green toned version of Essie's "Mint Candy Apple," as I think of Mint Candy Apple as being more of a Tiffany & Co Blue.

Essie describes "Spin The Bottle" as a semi-sheer nude - However, I think that it is very opaque brown toned nude that is very flattering on paler skin tones. I think that this shade will be perfect to wear to work this summer as it is very sophisticated. I find it very hard to find the perfect nude polish, as nude polishes tend to be very yellow based, or too pink. 

Essie is definitely one of my favourite nail polish brands! What is your favourite?
