Oh you know me, I love a good Essie seasonal drop. Be it spring, winter, whatever – they always come out with a cracker of a collection and their summer ’14 launch is no exception. Get your shades out as things are getting bright and I like it.
I’m a neutral kinda gal when it comes to my nail beds but in the summer I do like to mix it up. Hey, I can be wild sometimes. A nice orange on the toes or blue on my tips, it happens from time to time and right now Essie are catering for that corner. I picked up two shades in the full-size and a mini set that contained a further three (annoyingly one was a double of a larger bottle I’d previously purchased) and I have to say I’m loving them all. So here’s what we’ve got.
Strut Your Stuff, a sea-like blue, may just been my favourite from the four that I own of the six strong line-up. There are no dupes squatting already in my collection and the sorta off blue makes a nice change on my nails to the royal hues that I usually reach for. A green that isn’t a mint like Ruffles & Feathers would not be my first port of call when it comes to a mani, but there’s something about this colour that works. Heads up; it looks particularly good on the toes. I do love a good orange in the summer, mainly because it’s strictly a seasonal colour so I do try to get a few weeks of wear in and I reckon Roarrrange will be getting a fair amount over the next few months. Even if it is just for the name. I’m struggling to find a difference between Haute in the Heat and the other fuchsia pinks that I own, but what can I say? I do love a good miniature.
Essie – you babe – you’ve done it again.
