Labels: EssieI was only going to buy the green from this collection but I scored the entire collection on Ebay for a really great price. A few of them suprised me and I'm only "eh" about two of them. The formula was a bit thick but that is my experience with most Essie polishes. I needed at least three coats on all of them. They were a bit streaky on the first coat but things smoothed out with the second coat. Basically it is standard Essie formula from my stand point.
My opinion - the only stand outs in this collection are Pretty Edgy and Demure Vixen.
I do regret that I couldn't photograph these in the sun. Ah well.
Knockout Pout. Not much to say - it's pink and it dries to a satin. It's vibrant without being neon. It reminds me of Pepto Bismol.
Haute as Hello. A vibrant coral/pink/melon kind of color. Not a favorite color and looks really awful on me.
Vermillionaire. Wow. This one suprised me. It's a vibrant orange and I like it! So bright and juicy.
Miss Matched. I didn't think I was going to like this one but I do. Have I found a pastel that I like? I do believe I have! It's not stark at all. It's soft and light and lovely. Looks like it has a bit of pink and lavender in it. If you find pastels are stark, like me, you may want to check this out. I did need four coats on this though.
Demure Vixen. A light mauve that has a hint of coco which gives it a dusty look. There is subtle shimmer to this one. Another favorite.
You can see the shimmer here.
Pretty Edgy. Ah, the one I wanted! A glossy vibrant spring green. Yum! This reminds me of a 90's preppy green that Ralph Lauren would have put out in a polo or a green a golfer would wear.
