Essie Spring 09 Collection Swatches
Essie Springs foward this season introducing six new shades. A mixture of mostly reds, pinks, nudes and blue sure to please a craving or two.
Overall, this is a collection of safe colors. If your looking for professional shades you can sport day to day to work, this is a great varitey for your spring wardrobe. For the nail addicts (like myself), you'll probably find the Spring release to be a bit boring and bland.
Mesmerize is a bold pop of Blue that I suggest everyone grabs. A great color that looks fab on any skintone.
All my swatches were done with two applications. On the lighter colors, you'll need a firm three coats with most. I applied mine rather thick to achieve two coats.
Check out the swatches below.
Flawless is a muted mauvey pink creme that's really starting to grow on me. At first, I wasn't sure about this shade because it's different from most pinks I own.
As much as I wanted to love this perfect shade of nude pink creme, Eternal Optimist seemed to clash with my olive skin tone. Although, I'll probably keep her around because this is an awesome color for the office.
Status Symbol is a vibrant medium toned pink that comes in as my second fave. A great summer shade for mani's and pedi's.
Be Mesmerized with this vibrant shade of blue from Essie. A medium blue with hints of periwinkle. A definite must have from Essie's Spring collection.
On to my two least favorites from Essie's Spring collecton. One of a Kind is a red with orange that's similar to Lacquered Up with the exception of orange undertones.
Lacquered up is a true cherry red creme.

Hi Lizzy, Actually, Yes! Mesmerize is pretty close to Misa's on the Edge. On the edge is a tad bid darker and has deeper periwinkle undertones compared than mesmerize. Both are very pretty :)
