Essie Spring 2015 Collection Swatches & Reviews

Hello my polished friends!,

How is everyone doing? What I have for you today is swatches and reviews from the Essie Spring 2015 Collection. I've been pretty much stalking this collection waiting for it come and it's finally here! I ordered it from Nail Polish Canada which is now currently out of stock of the collection!. Honestly I love that site. They have so many choices for you to choose from and I'm also hoping that they try to bring on even more Indie Polish makers because that would make the site even more awesome! There's one color in particular that I really wanted to add to my collection which was Flowerista. I've seen pictures of this collection floating around and couldn't wait to see how they really hold up!

The Essie Spring 2015 Collection contains six polishes. From left to right they are:

  • Perennial Chic
  • Petal Pushers
  • Blossom Dandy
  • Picked Perfect
  • Garden Variety
  • Flowerista

Perennial Chic
Essie Perennial Chic

Perennial Chic is a s nude/taupe creme polish. It has a smooth formula but the first coat applied a little bit streaky for me. To be honest at first I didn't really like the color. You can say that I was sort of turned off from it, but after wearing it for a little bit it did start to grow on me. I prefer the color on the nails than in the bottle. When it's applied on the nails (to me anyways) it looks more like a spring color. I was able to achieve full opacity with three thin coats.

Petal Pushers

Next up we have Petal Pushers. Petal Pushers is a grey polish that has a purple undertone to it. I guess you could call it grey-purple?. It is a creme polish that has a very smooth formula. This polish applied very nicely and gave such good coverage that it could almost be fully opaque with just one coat! To achieve fully opacity I used two thin coats,but I'm pretty sure if you did one thicker coat that you could achieve full opacity as well. In all honesty I'm not a fan of this color. It seems like more of a fall/winter color than a spring one, unless it's supposed to look like the color of the sky when we get those really cloudy rainy days in the spring.

Can you see that grey-purple that I was talking about earlier??

Blossom Dandy
Essie Blossom Dandy

Blossom Dandy is a beautiful bright teal colored creme polish. The first application was streaky and I thought to myself that I was going to need at least three coats to achieve full opacity but this wasn't the case. It built nicely and I was able to achieve full opacity with just two coats!. Blossom Dandy has super shine to it and you could get away without wearing a top coat. This color is so pretty and is just wonderful for spring. I can see myself coming back to this color to use as a pedicure or just for a pick me up :).

Picked Perfect
Essie Picked Perfect


Picked Perfect actually reminds me of Cocoa Karma from the Essie Resort 2015 Collection which can be found here. Picked Perfect  is a mocha creme polish that has a smooth formula. This is another one of the polishes from this collection that is almost fully opaque with just one coat!. To reach full opacity I did use two thin coats of polish. Picked Perfect and  Perennial Chic are similar but aren't the same. When you see the two colors close together you cans see the differences. I'm not too sure why these two are in the same collection seeing  as they are pretty close in color. I do like Picked Perfect, but I'm not too sure how I feel about the color against my skin.

Garden Variety
Essie Garden Variety

Garden Variety is my second most favorite color from this collection (my camera went all willy wonka on me with this picture). I really do love this color. Garden Variety is a creme teal polish. This teal leans more on the darker side. The formula is very smooth which helped to make the application more enjoyable. This is one of those polishes that have an amazing shine to them and can go without a top coat (but for my slight OCD I always apply a top coat). For full opacity I used two thin coats; although this is one of those almost opaque in one coat polishes!

Flowerista


Essie Flowerista

And last but not least from the Essie Spring 2015 Collection is Flowerista. Remember how earlier up in the post I was rambling on about a polish that I just could wait to add to my polish collection? This is her! I absolutely love this color. Flowerista is a deep plum creme polish. The formula is smooth and is one more of those almost opaque in one coat colors!  To obtain full opacity I used two thin coats. This is one of those colors that I believe could be worn all year round. It's deep but not too dark, has a brightness to it but it's not blinding.
