Not Your Grandmother's Pastels!

Essie (clockwise): Pop Art Pink, Lilacism, Neo Whimsical,
 Van D'go, Tart Deco, Red Nouveau

Essie’s The Art of Spring Collection is a pretty-in-pastel six shade launch. They’re a nice bunch of colors that give you some color on your nails without being too bold, so they may work nicely for those who need to have more office-appropriate nails.

Pop Art Pink is a milky, jelly baby pink. This shade is exceptional because you can layer it with three coats for a near opaque finish! One coat will get you that softly pink-tinted look that’s cute and feminine without being bold.

Lilacism is a cool-toned lilac cream with blue undertones. This gave fairly opaque color with two coats.

Neo Whimsical is a light lavender cream with a pink tint. Three coats are needed to get an opaque look.

Van D’go is a lightened, milky pink with a peach cream finish. Two coats to get an opaque look.

Tart Deco is a peached coral cream. Two coats for an opaque finish with NO streaks.

Red Nouveau is a brightened red cream. (similar to ones we've seen before) It applies beautifully - very smooth, even, and nearly opaque in just one coat.
