essie | SPRING 2017

Hi loves! I’m baaack and this time I have the essie Spring 2017 collection to share with you all! I’m going to just jump right in as I was planning on having this post up a few days ago but WordPress was giving me a hard time… Plus I’m sure you’ve already seen some of the swatches pop up on the web.

SPOILER ALERT: Every single shade in this collection has the same AH-MAZING formula: super pigmented smooth creme!! My ABSOLUTE favourite and they were really such a joy to swatch – opaque with 2 thin coats ,even though you could get away with 1 ;).

Before we start swatching I’ll let you guys read the PR excerpt to get a better feel about this collection:

essie SPRING 2017 swatches:

‘B’AHA moment’ an enlightening pink pomegranate

‘backseat besties’ a delicate pink plumeria

‘all the wave’ a sapphire indigo

‘on the roadie’ a vibrant kelly green

‘designated DJ’ a plum sangria creme

‘excuse me, sur’ a sun-kissed coral mango

So what so we think – do we love them?! Personally I’m obsesed (ya I know what else is new) and I can’t wait for you guys to try!! What are some of your favourite shades? Currently, I’m dying over the kelly green.

The essie Spring 2017 collection will be available in beauty salons and retailers worldwide starting February 21, 2017 for $9.99. If you haven’t already, check out the swatches of their Ballet Nudes Gel Couture Collection and new TREAT, LOVE & COLOR care line! For more information on all things essie feel free to visit

    On the Roadie is darker than First Timer, right? I really like this collection! And hearing that the formulas are great makes it even better!!

      It’s pretty close but they’re not exact dupes! I’ll have to dig mine out to check 🙂

    Stunning swatches!!! Have you seen the Essie Retro Revival 2017 collection? They have two colours that look extraordinarily similar to the pinks and I’m wondering if they are dupes?
    Flawless vs Excuse Me, Sur
    Chastity vs Backseat Besties

      Thank you! I have seen the RR’17 Collection but unfortunately it hasn’t been released in North America (nor will it :(). I do have ‘chastity’ somewhere in my essie stash though so I may do some comparisons, I’m always curious! xo

        Oh no I didn’t realise it wouldn’t be released in North America (I live in Belgium).
        Yay! Would love to know your results! 🙂
