Essie Spring Collection 2011: French Affair Swatches/Review

Good Morning,

Essie has a nice spring pastel collection for us!

The french Affair collection is a new spin on neutral with opaque coverage in spring shades unlike the sheers seen in the past. Very clean and bright pastel color sets a new tone for the season: optimistic and fun. In six shades of fresh, pretty and classically feminine, your own personal Spring fling is now at your fingertips.

Overall I like this collection I love wearing pastels in the spring time.  I should have applied 3 coats to all of them.  I applied some of them pretty thick but it's best to apply 3 thin coats.  The formula is nice not thick or too thin.  I really like Kisses & Bisses it gives the colors a touch of shimmer and changes the look.

These can be purchased at Target, CVS, Walmart, Walgreens and Essie.com 

These were sent to me for review

Until next time please have a great nail polish day. (✿◠‿◠) Share/Bookmark
