Essie delivers on both fronts with their Summer 2014 collection.
I’ll just get right to it and say that I’m all about the whites, and so I had to try Urban Jungle which is a pinkish off white. I have to say that on the first coat, I thought ugh… I don’t know about this, but thankfully, the second coat delivered full coverage and looked completely streak-free.
I love the colour. White often looks too stark and bright, especially with a tan, but Urban Jungle has just enough of a tint in it to look pretty. It’s well-formulated and completely wearable. I do wish that there was just a little more pigment but as I said, the two coats look great.
All the colours in this collection are
- Haute in the Heat: Hot guava
- Roarrrrange: Bold orange
- Strut Your Stuff: Cobalt aqua
- Ruffles & Feathers: Peacock teal
- Fierce, No Fear: Cocoa mahogany
- Urban Jungle: Alabaster orchid
