Essie Spring 2018 Collection

Hello friends! I am so pleased to share the Essie Spring 2018 collection with you! The collection has a nautical theme and I think the color palette reflects that for the most part. I have a real soft spot for anything nautical so my heart was already in it before I even tried them on. The best part is that the formulas were all fantasic- really smooth, with nice opacity, and I didn't have any issues with application. Let's get right to it..

Pass-port to Sail is a sheer pearly sandy beige shimmer. As sheer polishes go it actually wasn't that sheer. I wore a ridge filling base coat so it wouldn't look too patchy. It self-leveled really well and I almost got away with a uniform look in one coat! Shown is two coats plus top coat.

Perfect Mate is a dusty coraly pink creme. We've been seeing a lot of these shades in the last year and I love them all. It had great opacity and a smooth formula. Shown is two coats plus top coat.

At The Helm is a dusty burnt pumpkin orange creme. The camera really wanted to show it brighter than it is, so imagine it a little more subdued. Another really smooth formula. Shown is two coats plus top coat.

Bon Boy-age is a light dusty mint/sage creme. This is one of my favorites of the collection because, well, look at it. It was also smooth and self-leveled well.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.

Stripes and Sails is a saturated teal creme. I didn't feel like there was really anything special about this shade but the formula was fantastic. This is a complete one coater! Shown is one coat plus top coat.

Anchor Down is a deep dusty blue/gray creme. I luuurve denim blue shades like this. It was so close to being a one coater, and if you applied it right it would be. Shown is two coats plus top coat.

I had to create some nail art with the whole collection to show off how they all look together. Since the collection has a nautical theme I wanted to reflect that in a subtle way with lots of stripes! I've done this look before a couple years back (here). I've wanted to recreate the style ever since.

The Spring 2018 collection is available online and in retail stores.
