Essie Spring 2016
Essie Spring 2016 is all about the sunshine vibe of Florida. It’s a good edit because the slightly muted brights give it a point of difference against all the searing hot summer shades. As an interim collection I think it really works, with the exception of Off Tropic, which is a deep, forest green and I can see why it’s there, given the theme of Florida with the Everglades but it’s just a little jarring next to the other creamier colours.
Shades on the wheel from left to right are: Shades On, Sunshine State of Mind, High Class Affair, Pool Side Service, Lounge Lover and Off Tropic.
I love a lavender nail so Shades On is calling me, but also the peaches and cream of Lounge Lover – I’d wear that any day of the week. Essie Spring 2016 is limited edition – it’s in stores now until May, when I expect a super hot shade for beach toes will be waiting! They’re £7.99 each.
