Essie's 2012 Spring Collection

Essie's 2012 Spring Collection plays tribute to ambitious women of action! This supremely feminine collection creates the perfect spring wardrobe for nails with skin flattering brights and power pastels to suit every occasion. The collection comes in six different hues that mean business:

Ole Caliente; To Buy or Not to Buy; Navigate Her; Tour de Finance; A Crewed Interest; Orange it's Obvious

Navigate Her: Lime/Sage green

Orange, it's Obvious!: Wildly Outspoken Orange

Ole Caliente: Spicy Red-hot Scarlet

Tour de Finance: Punchy Fuchsia Shade

To Buy or Not to Buy: Lilac Shimmer

A Crewed Interest: Pretty Peach

Four of the polishes listed above (Navigate Her; Orange, it's Obvious; Ole Caliente; and A Crewed Interest) are all matte. The other two, "Tour de Finance" and "To Buy or not to Buy," are a little different.

"Buy or not to Buy" plays off of Essie's new ‘Luxe Effects’, five multi-dimensional top coats, that can either be worn on their own for a hint of glamour, or layered over lacquer for all-out luxury. If you look closely at the lilac nail polish you will see tiny purple and blue sparkles hidden in the polish. It's a subtle look, but it makes the difference in the sunlight!

"Tour de Finance," a fuchsia pink has a pearly shimmer to it. When you apply it on your nails it leaves them almost looking like satin! Perfect for toes!
