Essie have recently released their Spring 2017 Collection (which I do have but haven't had a chance to swatch yet - but I will be soon) but I thought now was a great time to share with you their Shimmer Brights Collecton (or Bright Shimmer - I have seen this collection being called a few different ways now) from last year. I am slowly making my way through all of my polish purchases from 2016 and this collection was in the mix.
Aim To Misbehave is a yellow shimmer. This polish is Essie's 1000th polish and comes with a special metallic printed cap. I think that's kinda cool that they did something special to celebrate. Sadly, I am not a fan of this colour or the formula. I found it to be streaky and sheer. For my swatch I used three coats.
All Hands On Deck is an emerald green shimmer. This one has a better formula than Aim To Misbehave, however it is still see through at the tips after two coats.
Catch Of The Day is an blue shimmer. I think this one has one of the best formulas in this collection. It applies evenly and is a nice colour. It isn't super shimmery on the nails and gives more like a sheen than a shimmer. My swatch shows two coats.
DJ On Board is a purple shimmer. This polish is the other polish that has a good formula and is easy to use. Again, it's not super shimmery and has more of a sheen to it. I used two coats for my swatch.
Seen On The Scene is a pink shimmer. I think this is a nice colour. It is a little on the sheer side and is slightly see through at the tips on two coats (as shown in my swatch). I probably should have done a third coat for this one.
Sexy Plunge is an orange shimmer. The formula of this one is easy to use, however it does apply unevenly. I used three coats for my swatch.
Overall, I don't particularly care for this collection. It isn't overly exciting and the formulas really aren't great. It's definitely a bit of a meh collection for me.
Did you pick up any of these polishes?
