Essie Spring 2017 Collection - Swatches & Review

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

Sometimes you see a collection and you know that you just have to have it.  This happens to me a lot especially with Spring and Summer Collections.  I am such a super for bright and light coloured polishes.  Anyway, Essie's Spring Collection is one of those collections that were calling for me to get it.  I saw so many pictures and swatches of this collection (I'm sure they were stalking me!) and I couldn't skip over it.  Fast forward to now and I have swatched/worn the entire collection and can share all my thoughts with you.

All The Wave is described as a sapphired indigo.  I love the look of this one in the bottle, but found it was a little dark on my nails (I think that was more my expectation of it more than anything else).  I think it's a really nice colour (although I wish it was a little lighter or brighter to make it more spring like).  The formula is also really good.  With a careful application, you could get away with one coat.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Backseat Besties is described as a delicate pink plumeria.  I love this one.  I am actually wearing it as a full mani now.  I have also grabbed for it a few times now.  Such a gorgeous colour and it has a good formula.  My swatch shows two coats.

B'aha Moment is described as a pink pomegranate.  Again, this one is a really pretty colour with a good formula.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Designated DJ is described as a plum sangria creme.  I think this is a nice vampy colour but for me it does not belong in a spring collection.  This is a shade that I would expect (and would wear) in Autumn/Winter.  The formula is great and is opaque in two coats.

Excuse Me, Sur is described as a sun-kissed coral mango.  I was a little on the fence about this colour when I first put it on.  I wasn't sure if I like it on my nails.  But I wear it as a full mani and feel in love with it.  The formula is easy to use.  I used two coats but questioned whether I should do a third coat.

On The Roadie is described as a vibrant kelly green.  Personally I am not a fan of this one as a full nail colour, however I think that it is perfect for nail art.  The formula is great and is opaque in two coats.

Overall I like this collection, but wished that some of the colours weren't as dark as what they are.  The formulas across the polishes are good and so easy to use.  I know sometimes Essie's can be a little tricky to apply especially with the thin brushes (Essie polishes in Australia have a wide brush which are amazing!) but I didn't have any issues with the thin brush in these polishes.  My personal favourite from this collection (if you couldn't guess) is Backseat Besties.

What do you think about this collection?
