As you all know I love nail polish and especially Essie nail polishes, Orly are my other favourite brand and their top and base coats are second to none but I do own more Essie colours than Orly. I recently saw the Essie Spring Collection online and a couple of the colours caught my eye. There are six colours in the spring collection for 2013 and they are all lovely.

There are some lovely colours but I chose Go Ginza and Madison Ave-Hue, Go Ginza is a lovely pink toned lilac and Madison Ave-Hue is a blue toned hot pink with tiny silver particles in it.

Go Ginza is a lovely pale pink toned lilac that looks really nice on the nail, I applied my usual Orly Bonder base coat and then three coats of Go Ginza and finished off with Orly Polished top coat and I was pleasantly surprised, I always admire lilac colours on other people when I see them but have worried about wearing them as I have a lot of blue in my nails because of my medication, I still had a couple of hmmm I'm not sure moments but then my girls both said they liked it and I received a lot of compliments too so I decided that yes it actually did look quite nice after all.
Madison Ave-Hue is a blue toned hot pink with tiny silver particles in it and again the blue toned worried me at first, I had looked at swatches of both polishes before I ordered them from ASOS (I had a 25% discount code so would have been rude not to) but neither looked particularly blue toned so I was surprised by how blue toned Madison Ave-Hue was when I received it, but I did still like it anyway and couldn't wait to try it. I applied it in exactly the same way as Go Ginza using my Orly base and top coat and three coats of the polish.

Over all I am impressed with both colours and think they will both be perfect for spring and summer, and I think they would both make lovely toe colours too if we ever have any sandal wearing weather that is, they lasted well, I always get at least seven days wear out of an Essie polish when using my Orly base and top coat too. The only thing I was disappointed in was that the silver particles don't show up as much as I'd have liked but that's nothing I can't cope with, it is still a lovely colour and I have nothing else like it in my collection.
Have you tried any of the Essie Spring 2013 collection? What colour is your favourite?
