A Few Polishes from the Essie Spring 2012 Collection

Friday, April 13, 2012


The other day, I caved and picked up a mini set of Essie polishes for the Spring 2012 collection.

I've mentioned this before but I love these mini bottles! They're the perfect size.

The four colours in this set (from left to right) are Navigate Her, Olé Caliente, Tour de Finance, and To Buy or Not To Buy.


Navigate Her

A pastel green polish in a creme finish. I actually don't have a colour like this in my collection, so it's pretty unique to me. I like this shade, it's very Spring-y.

Colour: ♥♥♥♥♥

Lasting Power: ♥♥♥♥


Olé Caliente

A red/orange/pink colour. The colour is a rich red that leans coral. It's fun and bright. It applies beautifully and makes a perfect pedicure.

Colour: ♥♥♥♥
Application: ♥♥♥♥
Lasting Power: ♥♥♥♥



Tour de Finance

A bright shimmery fuchsia. The shimmer is actually really pretty in this polish, but this picture does not do it justice.

Colour: ♥♥♥♥
Application: ♥♥♥♥
Lasting Power: ♥♥♥♥



To Buy or Not To Buy

A shimmery lavender. Actually, the shimmer isn't that noticeable unless you're up close to it. The first coat applies streaky but evens out with another layer.

Lasting Power: ♥♥♥♥♥

    1. Haha I know exactly what you mean, it's so weird to have these itty bitty bottles amongst their big sisters. I will definitely be picking up the A Crewed Interest -- it looked so pretty what I saw it on your blog! xx

  5. oh my lord! You are a VERY bad influence! I saw your post and took one look at the colours and ordered them right away! LOL! They are such vibrant colours that will brighten anyway (especially today and all the rain that we've been getting in the prairie provinces!) Thanks for sharing!
