Hello everyone! A lot has happened in a couple of months. As you might have noticed Essie is one of my favorite brands, and they are releasing a lot of collections this spring. To keep you on track, I thought it was a nice idea to give you a small update on all the new collections they are releasing.
So Essie is going a bit crazy again this Spring (remember this summer?). I have counted three “normal” collections this far, I’ve seen new gel couture collections, and Essie released a completely new line of polishes with different bottle shapes. So let’s first start with the normal collections.
This year Essie is releasing a Valentine’s collection with special wrappers again. Click here for Essie’s own website and if you want to see swatches click here. To be honest, I probably won’t pick them up. The colors are nice but pretty standard. If you are looking for nice basic shades in classic nail colors, this collection might be for you.
Next up is Essie’s Flying Solo collection. Apparently this is the “in between” collection. With this, I mean that the Flying Solo collection is the collection between the Christmas 2019 collection and the Spring 2020 collection. It is a huge collection consisting fo 9 polishes. For Essie’s own page: click here for swatches: here (I believe she is missing one polish though). I find the Flying Solo collection very pretty. However, it leans a bit to the Spring/Summer kind of vibe and not a collection I would have released in January/February. However, the colors are very pretty. If I encounter this collection somewhere I probably will take some colors home (especially the blue one).
The third collection is Essie’s “real” Spring 2020 collection called Spring in your Step. I only just saw some swatches coming by and I am very excited. It is so new that it’s not even on Essie’s own website yet. It consists of 6 polishes, three cremes and three shimmers in fun Spring colors. You can checkout swatches over here. Some of these colors seem amazing. I love it!
So in the meantime Essie is also releasing a complete new line called “Expressie”. Apparently this is some new line of polish that dries super quick and can be used on the go. I always believe that you should take your time when it comes to nail polish, so I am a tiny bit sceptical. Apparently this line consists of four sub-collections. I am not sure whether Essie is planning on releasing more limited edition Expressie collections like they do with the Gel Couture polishes. Unfortunately I have not seen many reviews or complete swatches of these polishes yet, only a couple of post on instagram and youtube. However, gingerlypolished has a post about where she tries a couple of them over here. I have to admit, they definitely are releasing some unique colors in this line that I have never seen from Essie before! On this website you can see an overview of all colors. I definitely see myself buying a few “Expressies” just to check whether they are nice.
The last collection I want to mention is the Timeless Tweeds Gel Couture collections. It consists of 6 Gel Couture polishes, with office friendly/tweed colors. You can find swatches of this collection over here. I think there are some unique colors in this collection and that a lot of Essie lovers are going to like them. However, I am way more excited about the other Essie collections!
And that is all! All the new Essie Collections I have spotted so far. I am a bit overwhelmed, there are so many polishes! And so many awesome new collections. I already started making a list with polishes I really want and polishes I do not really “need”. There are just too many!
Which ones do you like best?
