Yes I know it's Summer and I'm still doing reviews on Spring collections. It's been a super busy week for me. Work is tiring and stressful as usual. Still daydreaming about the day I will quit that shit hole. But anyways, today I have Essie's French Affair for Spring 2011 collection to show you. Before I show the swatches, I want to say I loved this whole collection. All the colors matches Spring really well (but always wearable in Summer =P)
Sand Tropez is a dark beige nude creme. 2 coats
Coat Azure is a soft dusty blue with subtle silver shimmer. 2 coats. This one looked amazing.
Nice is Nice is a pastel lavender creme. 2 coats. I think this is the best lavender creme ever. First, it wasn't streaky and had full coverage under 2 coats. And second is a unique lavender creme. Not the plain boring ones but the color in this one is very vivid.
French Affair is a pink creme with a bit of lavender in it. 2 coats. I also loved this pink because it's different from other pink cremes.
Topless & Barefoot is a light beige nude creme. 3 coats. This was the only one I had problem with. For some reason it was a bit thick. Maybe it's just my bottle. 2 coats was good for coverage, but it was uneven so I had to add another coat just to even it out. I still like the color though!
Kisses & Bises is a sheer ivory pearl with flashes of pink. 4 coats. I think this was meant for more of a top coat over other colors. However, I was lazy to do it over any of them =x I'm sure it will look amazing over other colors.
The formula for these were pretty good. They were fully opaque and needed only 2 coats. I've always loved Essie products, but hate having to spend $8 each for them. I want to say they're worth it but I don't know. I've been a fan of Essie polishes since I was little. Essie was one of the first nail polish brand I bought and own. I wish I remember the name of it but I can't haha
Well that's all I have for today!
