My Essie Collection Part 2: Blue, Green & Purple

Friday, May 15, 2015

Hey everybody, it's time for part two of my Essie collection! Today, I'll be talking about my blue, green and (part of) purple polishes. I already talked about my nude polishes and nail care last week. I'll put a link to that post at the end of this one, in case you have missed it. Go get a snack, sit back, relax and enjoy reading! 

* Style Cartel: I personally don't like black nail polish, I think it looks to harsh on me. I do like dark, 'almost' black colors, though! This one is a very dark blue color. Nice consistency and a gorgeous color for fall and winter.
* Lapiz Of Luxury: a vibrant blue color that gets lots of love in the summer! This one is very pigmented but comes out a bit darker than it looks like in the bottle.
* Parka Perfect: This is a beautiful grey color with a tiny hint of blue in it. I don't wear this as much as I should, it's such a beauty!
* Maximilian Strasse-her: A cool grey-green. This one is a very nice, light dusty green color. Too bad the name reminds me of guy I dated about a month last year, he was kind of an idiot...

* Turquiose and Caicos: One of my absolute favorites! I've used this so much over the years. It's a true blue-green color. It's one of the few sheer Essie colors, you need about three to four coats to get an opaque finish. 
* Mint Candy Apple: This is a very famous color by Essie. It's a beautiful mint green color that applies like a dream. I love this one!
* Blossom Dandy: I got this one as a birthday gift from two friends. It's from the Essie Spring 2015 collection. It's quite similar to Mint Candy Apple, but slightly more on the blue side. 
* Mojito Madness: A bright grass green that screams 'Summer'! This is such a fun color. I must be honest, I haven't worn this one yet, since I think it's more apropriate fot the summer months. I'm quite curious to see how it performs!

* Cosy Warm Turtleneck: A dusky purple color. Good quality, but sadly not a color I wear very often.
* Lilacism: A spring favorite! This pastel lilac color is so pretty! It takes about three coats to apply because it can be a tiny bit streaky. But the end result is gorgeous. This is one of my most used Essie colors.
*Angora Cardi: A creamy, deep rose color. Very nice darker color. No complaints about this one, it applies very smooth and looks great after two coats!

* Bahama Mama: This is a very popular color on blogs and youtube and I understand why! Dark plum purple color, great pigmentation, looks good on everyone... What are you guys still doing here? Go get it as well! 
* Shearling Darling: Another of those 'almost black' colors. Dark dark dark red. It's very similar to 'Rouge Noir' from Chanel. I love colors like this but you have to be very patient with it, because the tiniest mistake is noticeable. Taking it off is also a bit of a pain in the ass... Red stains everywhere! Is it worth it? I'd say yes ;)
* The Lace Is On: A jewel-toned fuchsia purple with a blue sheen. That says enough, I think! One of the most beautiful colors Essie has ever made, in my opinion. Fantastic formulation. Love love love!
