Essie Spring 2012 Shades

Spring brings along many joys, including new nailpolish shades — well, for me at least! Essie Weingarten, founder and Global Creative Director of essie, gave me the scoop on the spring collection that will have you wishing it was already April. Essie describes this collection as being for the beautiful, ambitious woman adding, “Fortune favors the bold.” I agree with that statement wholeheartedly.

Are you excited to get your hands on these colors?

Here are some at-home tips from essie on how to replicate the “Matchy, Matchy” look that is one of the hottest nail trends of the moment.

1. Paint your nails with the crewed interest shade. The soft peach color will serve as a base. Once it’s completely dry, you can move on to the next step. Make sure it has dried, otherwise the second step will not work as well.

2. Adding a layer of delicacy as the second coat will give a lucid shiny pink addition. Paired, these colors give off a really cool mirror effect.

3. Give your nails 2 minutes to set. Best way to ensure your nails stay pretty and glossy is to add good to go as a top coat for your finish.
