While I am ready for spring Mother Nature doesn’t seem very interested in leaving winter behind. At least here in Charlotte. But that isn’t stopping me from using polishes from spring polish collections!
For spring 2014 Essie released a 6 polish collection “dedicated to women everywhere who aren’t afraid to play – in life and in style.” I must admit Hide & Go Chic is a super clever name for a nail polish collection though I’m not sure I’d look at the offerings and think this collection was supposed to be playful.
Truth or Flare (another clever name!) is a slightly dusty pale blue creme. Essie describes it as a vintage blue denim. Regardless of which description you go with for some reason I don’t love this color blue but I can’t exactly put my finger on why. Regardless, it’s also not the most flattering blue for my particular skintone so I guess it’s good I don’t love the color!
Unfortunately, the formula isn’t great. I needed 3 (4 on some nails…) coats to get an even, opaque color.
