Essie Spring 2014

Essie Spring 2014

It’s quite a late launch for Essie Spring 2014, because these shades don’t launch til April – well worth the wait, though. Maybe because (luckily) in London and the south east we haven’t really had any harsh winter (yet) I am feeling for spring right now. It’s a gorgeous sunny morning and I need these on my nails! So the line up is from left to right: Style Hunter, Spin the Bottle and Romper Room.

And, now the blues, again from left to right: Truth Or Flare, Fashion Playground and Hide And Go Chic. I must admit, my top pick is the milky, pale blue of Truth Or Flare which is going to be spring perfection when all the pastel clothes start hitting the stores. I’ve seen quite a bit of neon forthcoming, fashion wise, and yet so far, none of the spring nails are reflecting that. I love neon but I think that beauty brands were hoping it would just go away! Essie polishes are up there in my favourite category; the quality is always good and the collections are always exciting.

On the subject of polishes, OPI seems to have died a bit of a death in the UK – a couple of years ago an OPI launch was a major deal and now I hardly see anything of it.
