Hello and happy Wednesday to you!
Today I have the limited edition essie Spring 2018 Collection. This collection features six new shades, which are mostly cremes. They were inspired by a spring sailing trip down the coast – what coast, I have no idea. No matter, they are mostly really great shades.
I used two coats for all these swatches, however one of them, pass-port to sail (which is slightly shimmery) really needs a ridge-filling base coat under it or three thin coats. No problems with any of them other than that though.
pass-port to sail is a sheer ivory with white shimmer. Since they do describe this one as a “sheer” shade maybe you would like it with two coats. I think three would look better as I prefer more opaque colors.
perfect mate is a bright coral pink creme.
bon boy-age is a muted mint green creme. LOVE!
at the helm is a bright fiery orange creme. Another really great one!
strips and sails is a medium/dark teal green creme. Lovely.
anchor down is a deep nautical-looking blue creme with greyish undertones.With the exception of pass-port to sail, I really like all of these colors and would definitely wear them. Love how the cremes are very saturated and opaque with just two coats. I feel like bon boy-age, at the helm and anchor down are the “stand-out” colors here.
You can find the essie Spring 2018 Collection on their site and in stores now and they are $9.00 each.
