Essie’s Spring nail polish swatches

by Bionic Beauty on 27.Jun.2009 · 1 comment

In mid June I showed you swatches of Essie’s amazing blue polish, Mesmerize. While the rest of the collection certainly isn’t as spunky, some of the colors are certainly worth a peek. And as always, Essie nail polish applies and wears like a dream.

Swatches of Essie spring 2009 nail polish

Spring 2009 nail polish from Essie

Flawless is a very cool-toned pink with a slightly dusty appearance. It’s a true cream with no hint of shimmer. I applied 3 coats for pure matte coverage.

One of A Kind is a cream red with a coral undertone. This red is great for warm-toned gals.

Status Symbol– a punchy bubble gum pink! This color is perfect for a slight foray into the neons that are so popular this summer. You’ll need a few coats to reach opaqueness though.

All Lacquered Up, a classic red cream. This one doesn’t have the orange/coral undertone of One of a Kind. And while it’s still quite warm, it would be better than OOAK for cooler skin tones. Personally, I’d pick up one or the other- they’re close enough that most people won’t notice the difference.

Eternal Optimist is another slightly dusted pink creme. I’m no usually a pink polish gal, but this was a bit grungy, yet subtle. Almost a flesh tone for those of us pale ladies.

Which colors are your favorites?

I like the “Status Symbol,” polish the best. I love Essie nail polish!
