Perfectly Polished Tips 130 - Essie Spring

For spring it appears that Essie went slightly outside of her comfort zone. Among the pale pinks and reds she included a blue, but not just a blue, a blue creme! To be quite honest I don't love this collection, my love for pinks and reds have faded completely. I haven't had a red or pink (especially cremes) lemming in a long time. It's hard to make unique variations of them after a while. I suppose it would be the same for blue as well but for some reason I just can't get enough. Each of these polishes applied amazingly, and Mesmerize wore like iron which isn't usual for me when I wear an Essie. I noticed that with the winter collection as well. No complaints here!

One of a Kind is a tomato red creme.

Lacquered Up is an orange-y red but more so red than orange.

Eternal Optimist is described as spiced tea rose. It's a band aid but better color on me, and a bit more pink in real life. I don't think it looks too great on me though.

Flawless is supposed to be a cherry blossom pink, it's more bubble gum in real life. My camera doesn't pick up pinks well in artificial lighting.

Status Symbol is a tame hot pink. Even though it's been done a million times I know already that this is going to be a favorite spring/summer pedicure color for me.

Mesmerize is royal blue amazing-ness. My favorite from the collection.

Essie spring is currently for sale and should be relatively easy to find. I really want to applaud Essie for coming out with two awesome collections in a row. Winter was brillant with those purples and now with Mesmerize. Maybe one day she'll come up with a collection filled with nothing but jewel toned greens, purples, and blues. You hear that Essie?

Mesmerize is so pretty! Essie needs to make more bold colors like that!

I'm really in need of a nice neutral color. I think I might go for Eternal Optimist or Flawless. Then maybe pick up Mesmerize! B/c at Ulta they are buy 2 get 1 free!
