essie springToday I’m thrilled to bring you essie’s spring 2014 collection.

“This year essie is all about colour, colour, colour” as I heard Katie Green, Director of Communications for essie Canada, reveal at the bloggers event I attended a month ago during Toronto Fashion Week. The essie spring collection speaks to exactly that – COLOR! With six stunning cream shades to choose from, fit for every occasion, the essie spring collection meets any fashionista’s nail polish desires.

The essie spring collection consists of six shades:

fashion playground: Fun and games just met its match. This plucky pistachio green with subtle shimmer flirts with forever and plays for keeps.

PROS: More mint then pistachio but still a gorgeous green. Full coverage with 2 coats

CONS: the shimmer is just as essie states “subtle” – very hard to catch in the photograph

hide and go chic: I see you! Covetable azure blue is every elusive but impossible to miss

PROS: stunning blue for the season that goes with just about anything. Full coverage in 2 coats. Formula is to die for!

CONS: nothing – this is the one for me!essie canada, essie, essie spring collection, essie spring swatches, essie spring review, hide and go chic, hide and go chic swatchessie canada, essie, essie spring collection, essie spring swatches, essie spring review, hide and go chic, hide and go chic swatch

truth or flare: Sexy. Fun. Totally glamourous. Vintage blue denim fits perfectly, honestly these jeans always make you look fab.

PROS: another perfect shade of blue, that is so shiny without even a topcoat. The creamy formula applies like a dream and gives full coverage in two coats.

CONS: Nothing – Add this to your list right now!essie canada, essie, essie spring collection, essie spring swatches, essie spring review, truth or flare, truth or flare swatchessie canada, essie, essie spring collection, essie spring swatches, essie spring review, truth or flare, truth or flare swatch

spin the bottle: Close you eyes. When you give this flirty, semi-sheer nude a while, be prepared to pucker up.

PROS: I always love a fantastic nude, or neutral shade and this hits the spot. Also applies perfectly in two coats.

CONS: With essie’s Resort Collection having just put out another neutral in “cocktails & coconuts” and my favourite essie must have “sand tropez”, I don’t see the need for yet another nude in the line. I will be swatching these together soon so we can see the difference between them.essie canada, essie, essie spring collection, essie spring swatches, essie spring review, spin the bottle, spin the bottle swatchessie canada, essie, essie spring collection, essie spring swatches, essie spring review, spin the bottle, spin the bottle swatch

romper room: make way for the new kid on the block. This pretty pale tea rose pink knows how to work the room: stylishly.

PROS: you can never go wrong with tea rose pink.

CONS: as with most soft pinks, they are trickly to apply and usually get full coverage with 3 thin and even coats. I will say that the formula is self-levelling, so you can get a nice full coverage if you apply somewhat evenly.essie canada, essie, essie spring collection, essie spring swatches, essie spring review, romper room, romper room swatchessie canada, essie, essie spring collection, essie spring swatches, essie spring review, romper room, romper room swatch

style hunter: Bright. Hot. Laser-focused. This pure crimson is a chic-seeing missile that always gets exactly what it’s looking for.

PROS: HOT. HOT. HOT. Do I need to say more? Applies like all essie’s red. Perfect in two coats.

CONS: do we really need another red essie? “A” list looks quite similar I think. I’ll do some comparisons soon.essie canada, essie, essie spring collection, essie spring swatches, essie spring review, style hunter, style hunter swatchessie canada, essie, essie spring collection, essie spring swatches, essie spring review, style hunter, style hunter swatchThe Verdict?

Will Spend My Starbucks Money On:

  • Hide and Go Chic
  • Truth or Flare

Might Miss One Starbucks This Week For:

  • Fashion Playground
  • Romper Room

I’m Not Giving Up My Starbucks For:

  • Spin the Bottle (only because I have very similar essie shades)
  • Style Hunter (only because I have very similar essie shades)
