Essie Swatches - Play Date amp Navigate Her

5 years ago

I`ve been wanting these two polishes since the day I spotted them at Walgreens. I`ve tried very hard to control myself because everytime I see them in store, I`m always reaching for them, and then put them back on the shelf and leave.

My sister constantly kept reminding me that I shouldn`t pay full price for these and that she could get them from the nail supply (for cheaper) for me. However, she is taking too damn long to deliver, puahhaha. So I took matters into my own hands when I got the $10 CVS gift card and $4.00 CVS coupon. That was a pretty sweet deal :D!

Navigate Her is from Essie`s new spring 2012 collection. It`s actually the only polish in that collection that I was interested in. The reason is I think this green polish looks very unique. I have not seen any other like it, at least not that I can recall. It`s like a light sage green with a bit of yellow undertone and a creme finish. Pastel colors always reminds me of spring.
Here I have two coats in the swatches. The application was a bit uneven on the first coat but looked pretty good on the second pass. I`m very pleased that it wasn`t streaking, which is usually a problem I find in light colors with creme finish.

Play Date is from the Go Overboard collection. I was tempted to get Go Overboard as well; however, I think that it looks close enough to OPI Ski Teal We Drop, that I decided to pass. The reason why I`ve been lusting over Play Date is because I don`t think I have anything like it in my collection and I find the color very appealing. It`s a gorgeous lilac color with creme finish. My camera doesn`t really capture the true colors of purples. It actually has a bit more red undertone in real life than pictured.
Here I have two coats. The first coat is a bit sheered but the second coat applied beautifully and evenly.
On a side note, while I was shopping, I noticed that Rimmel Wild Orchid nail polish looked very close in color when I put the bottles side by side. When I google the swatch, it sure looks like a cheaper dupe for me. So you could get a similar color for half the price if you are going with Wild Orchid. Here is a link to the swatch that I googled so you can compare it for yourself

Have you gotten any new Essie polishes?
