Essie Lounge Lover Collection Spring 2016

Essie Lounge Lover Collection Spring 2016

I really wish I had gotten these swatches up sooner, but do any of us really care about polish colors and how season appropriate they are? I certainly don’t. I wear neons during Winter and vampy colors in the middle of Summer because I wear what I like when I feel like it. The Essie Lounge Lover Collection is this years Spring offering and I can say some of these scream delicate Spring colors while others definitely do not.  Let’s take a look at the 6 shades that make up Essie’s Spring collection, shall we?

Is it just me or does Essie Off Tropic stick out like a sore thumb? Still, I don’t see too many greens like this so I’m kind of in love with it. It’s like the most luscious dark green that makes me think of a freshly mowed lawn. I think that Pool Side Service is my favorite shade from this collection along with Shades On because who can say no to a beautiful purple? I did not have any issues with the formula on these except for maybe High Class Affair which needed three coats to even out. For the rest, I applied two coats of polish and one coat of top coat. You may notice some bubbling: that is not the polish but the top coat that thickened up on me. The colors are definitely nice in this collection, but I wasn’t super wowed by them. Solid effort, Essie…but I’m not feeling any excitement. Did you pick up any of these shades? Let me know what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.
