Spring Forward with Essie Spring 2009!

Published in: Nails

UPDATE: The contest is closed, and I’ll be notifying the winners shortly. Thanks for entering!


What do ya get when you mix sassy red with nude pink, add a dash of Smurfy blue, and pour in *lots* of cream?

Answer: a recipe for Essie’s spring 2009 color collection.

From left to right: Mesmerize, One of a Kind, Status Symbol

From left to right: Eternal Optimist, Flawless, Lacquered Up

The six sweet and spunky $8 nail colors go on sale next month, and aren’t they cute?

Compared to winter’s dark purples and deep reds, these nudes and classic reds (and the surprise blue) have spring written all over ’em, and I dig the vibe. It’s dreamy and playful — like a warm, lazy afternoon in the park.

I’m new to blue — nail polish (aka Le Club du Blue). Creamy, royal Mesmerize caught my eye because I don’t have anything like it in my nail polish stash. And for some odd reason when I look at Mesmerize I feel patriotic, go figure!

I can see it looking great well into summer. Could you imagine having her on your toes and wearing a pair of cute, strappy sandals? Hot!

Status Symbol, a creamy and bright pink coral, looks like food. By that I mean it looks good enough to eat, LOL! It makes me want to suck on my fingers, as if I’m sporting strawberry-flavored candy nails, and like Mesmerize it should look great worn well into August.

I think many of the collection’s other pinks and reds look somewhat similar but have subtle differences.

The creamy reds — One of a Kind and Lacquered Up — could be twins! But a hint of orange makes One of a Kind just slightly warmer.

And Lacquered Up looks more like a true red to me. I like both of these crimson divas, but I think I prefer the way One of a Kind cooperates with my skin color.

Creamy Eternal Optimist a peachy-brown and pink, looks warmer than her sister Flawless, a cool and pale pink.

I think I’m drawn more to Eternal Optimist, though. She just seems a little more natural, but it’s a tough choice. Flawless is one of those sweet pinks that pops!

Despite the nudes that make this feel like a traditional spring release, I love how the collection adds some funner shades to keep things interesting, particularly Mesmerize and Status Symbol. They’re my favorite stars of the show.

    Mesmerize, status symbol, and eternal optimism have definitely caught my eye. I love the Essie formula too, not too thick and horrible when I make painting mistakes, which is often.

  34. Faye says:

    Oh my goodness! I am sooo excited about this giveaway. I gave myself a firm talking-to and started a no-buy, but then I read about this collection on another blog and was tempted. I’ve been trying to stay firm and stick to my guns and if I won I could do that without cheating!

  44. Stephie says:

    Ha. Mesmerize does seem like a random touch to this collection. I’ve been curious about Essie for a while. Being a nail polish novice, I hear their long application brush makes it much easier. I really like Status Symbol, it’s one of those pinks that make you feel like your have happy fingers. 😛 I will have to hunt it down to add to my very small collection.

  45. ParisB says:

    I love status symbol, flawless and eternal optimist. I’ll check these out at Ulta! Thanks for all the blogs! I’m always updated with the current beauty trends in the market!

    i have to be honest i just found your blog three days ago and i couldn’t be happier!! I recently (meaning the past two months) got into makeup and polish and have discovered so many websites about it for beginners and addicts, and this by far has to be one of the best…. i love this collection. Being a huge fan of blues lately, Mesmerize definitely caught my eye. And Eternal Optimist, to me, looks like a must have neutral.

    I love all the new Essie Colors, but my favorite is definately Status Symbol! Can’t wait to try it. It has me yearning for spring already!
    Your blog is great. Thanks for taking the time to share all the beauty info. It helps me get my “make-up and beauty” fix for the day! lol

    Eternal Optimist is my new favorite! I use it all the time when I get manicures. I haven’t used Flawless yet, but once the weather gets a bit warmer I will definitely be trying it out. I wish I could try Status Symbol but it’s a bit too bright for my corporate job =(
