Essie Spring 2015 Mini Collection Swatches + Review

I've been on the hunt for a few spring-apropos nail colors that will add a little flower power to my mani game, so I couldn't resist scooping up the Essie Spring 2015 Mini Collection after spotting it at Ulta. The shades are unquestionably perfect for spring; but feature some darker hues that make this mini set gorgeous for year-round wear. Just take a peek at the swatches!

Flowerista is a Plum Creme. I rarely gravitate towards colors like this - especially for spring; but there is something seriously hypnotic about Flowerista that made it a fave for me {and not just because it falls into the category of OCW}. The formula here, though slightly tacky, is remarkably easy to work with - and so yummy to look at! This is 1 coat.


Blossom Dandy is an Icy Mint Blue Creme. Can we just agree that Essie is queen when it comes to releasing minty shades? Seriously. Blossom Dandy is close in color to Essie's cult favorite Mint Candy Apple, but it's not a dupe - Blossom Dandy is a brighter, cooler-toned color with far better formula. This is 2 coats.


Petal Pushers is a Slate Grey Creme. Ordinarily, I would be swooning over a grey shade; but since Petal Pushers follows closely on the heels of OPI's Fifty Shades of Grey Collection {which I loved}, I feel as if I'm currently greyed out. Regardless, the steely shade is still a beaut, and absolutely perfect to work with - smooth, creamy, and quickly opaque {we're talking almost OCW status}. NOTE: The color is darker IRL than what you see here. This is 2 coats.


Perennial Chic is a Peachy Apricot Nude Creme. Say hello to my favoritefavoritefavorite shade in this quartet. Perennial Chic is the quintessential nude creme that elongates rather than creating mannequin hands {likely due to the peachy/rosy undertones}. Considering how pale this color is, the formula is on. fleek. Self-leveling, buildable, and long-lasting. This is 2 coats.


AVAILABILITY: Ulta and Nordstrom for the 4-pack mini; mass market merchandisers, drugstores, and department stores for full-size individual bottles.

PRICE: $13.00 at Ulta, $17.00 at Nordstrom; or buy full-size bottles separately for $8.50 each.
