I ordered 2 of the Essie Spring 2013 collection from my usual and only Essie supplier - Tammy (link here). It seems like a quiet collection, I have yet to come across blogs with full swatches, so it was a little hard to decide if I wanted everything from the collection or just pick my faves - in the end I went for two colors which I thought the names are quite cute, and also the color description seem unique. I just can't resist a good Essie, and I find that in recent couple of years, they are really bringing out small and beautiful collections - almost all with superb formula.
Collection information -
The Essie spring collection is inspired by some of the most fashionable cities in the world: New York, London, Paris, Munich, Tokyo and Rio. It’s full of soft milky hues with one eye popping orange red to brighten up the mix. Here’s the full shade breakdown:
- Madison Ave-Hue – chic upper east side pink (with silver shimmer)
- Go Ginza- soft cherry blossom pink
- Avenue Maintain – lovely Parisian blue
- Bond With Whomever – poshLondonlilac
- Maximillian Strasse Her – cool grey green
- Hip-Anema – poppy-bright red orange
Both colors I picked are perfectly opaque in two coats.
Maximillian Strasse Her - is a cool grey with a green/mint tinge. It is very unique, I don't have any close ebough dupes in my stash to even compare. It's that kind of grey toned shade which I cannot resist.
