Today I have another polish from the 2014 Essie Too Taboo collection. I’m loving this collection! I just can’t get enough of neon polishes.
Essie describes Chills & Thrills as a supercharged blue violet. This polish does have blue undertones but it pulls mostly purple against my skintone. It’s a lovely color that was absolutely perfect for a Sunday manicure.
The formula is surprisingly good. Chills & Thrills is a neon but I only needed two coats to get an opaque, streak free color. This is not a neon I would use a white base with; there’s just no need!
Overall I’m really impressed with this polish. Not often do you find a neon polish with a fabulous formula. Plus, I loved the color so much I’ve already used it for a pedicure 🙂
Chills & Thrills is currently available on beauty.com as well as Amazon. This polish is included in the mini set for this collection but I have to say I am not a fan of the mini set. It includes Chills & Thrills and Too Taboo from the neon collection but the other two polishes are Essie Blanc (just a plain, white creme) and essie Good to Go! top coat.
I see where Essie was going with the mini set. For many neons a white base can really make the color pop. Chills & Thrills doesn’t need a white base. And I’m sure they included the top coat because neons dry to a semi matte finish. While it’s a nice idea it’s just not something I would spend $17 on!
So far I’m loving this collection! In case you missed it I posted a review on I’m Addicted last week.
