Happy Wednesday !!!!
With winter coming to an end, what better way to celebrate spring than with Essie Spring 2014 Collection: Resort Fling.
To be honest, I was a bit disappointed with the new spring line up. Are the colors cute? YES.
Are they exciting? Not really.
Overall, they are a transitional set from winter to spring which can be used all year round. My favorite color in this set is Resort Fling, which shares a very similar color formula with Essie’s Tart Deco .
The formulation of Essie nail polish is very watery and thin in consistency to create an even application. I found that Resort Fling and Cocktails & Coconuts too runny. Both colors need at least 3 coats to fully reach opacity, with Resort Fling being the most translucent.
“Find me an Oasis” was by far the streakiest and chalky yet only needs two coats. It is a lovely spring summer color, especially if you are a fan of white nail polish. The color is a subtle powder blue.
“Under the Twilight” had the best formula. It is the most opaque in the set needing only 1 coat to see its dark cool nature.
Formulation aside, I did not care for Cocktails & Coconuts. I felt the color clashed with my skin tone. I do believe a nude is an essential spring color, and this color is beautiful. Unfortunately, the tone just isn’t for me.
