One of the big trends in nail polish for the summer 2014 season is green! This is a great lead into fall 2014 as one of the most important colors for autumn will be hunter green. Although falls’ green will be dark, summers’ green is a great warm-up for getting into the green spirit 🙂
When I spotted Essie’s “Ruffles & Feather’s” while shopping at Target, I was immediately drawn to the slightly blueish tint to the otherwise classic green hue. I love how the green color is cool and looks more blue when placed next to ocean hues and shades of pinks. I also love how when next to neutrals and black, Essie’s “Ruffles & Feathers” takes on a more classic green hue. It is such a beautiful color!
I applied two coats of Essie’s “Ruffles & Feathers” with one base coat, and no top coat. The nail polish is extremely long lasting and has lasted nine days without chipping! Love that! I am shocked the nail polish has not chipped; especially since I did some house-cleaning and swimming!
My apologies for my sample photo, I seem to have applied Essie “Ruffles & Feathers” a little too thick, and as a result, I have some bubbling on my nails. Despite the bubbles, you are still able to see the true color and how pretty it is!
Essie’s “Ruffles & Feather’s” nail polish is limited edition and part of Essie’s summer 2014 nail polish color collection. “Ruffles & Feather’s” by Essie can be found online here, here, here and here. Happy shopping, and stay fabulous 😉
