With a new season comes a new Essie collection… I’ve had these for a couple of months now, and I’ve had to pack them away until a more appropriate date before I show them. Because while it might have been summer in the Northern hemisphere, but I see no use in flaunting a collection in July that will only be on shelves in October. So now, finally, here is the Essie Summer 2012 collection:
I received a very interesting-feeling parcel, but because I’d heard a couple of beauties whine about sand in their keyboards and cellphones the previous day, I knew EXACTLY what it was as soon as I felt the weight so I safely opened it on the kitchen counter. Hazard or not, I think it was a brilliant way to present a summer collection, and I hope the winter collection arrives in a tin of hot chocolate powder 😉
But on to the colours. As you can see from the first pic, they’re seriasly on trend. In fact, this is the highest ratio of colours I’ve liked in one collection in a v long time – I’d wear 5 of those, it’s just the bronze/brown one I’m not feeling. I received three of them, and here’s what they look like:
The Essie Summer Collection will be in selected salons, spas and retail stores from 1 October, and are sold at a RRP of R100 each.
