I have here swatches of all the colors in that collection for you guys. For all of them I used 2 coats to achieve full coverage. Actually there are some of them that are so pigmented that you might just need one coat though. I had no problems as far as application. The formula on this collection is superb. Once I wore all of them I can tell the wear of those polishes is long last. I really really like them all and have nothing to say about this collection but good things. Now scrool down for swatch pictures.
COCKTAIL BLING - let's start with the polish the collection was named after. Cocktail Bling is a pale gray with blue undertones. I love baby blues and love grays so the combination of the two made me just happy to have that little bottle I will tell you that.
SIZE MATTERS - it's a blazing hot ruby red. It's a very interesting color cause sometimes it also look a very deep burgundy red like shown on the picture. I don't know if you guys already know that but I love red and love red polishes. That one could be different. It's so creamy that you could almost just wear one coat of it but I went with two. I can't wait to be able to have a pedi so I can put that on. It's a 5 star kinda polish!
BOBBING FOR BAUBLES - is a deep dark sapphire. It's something very very unique in my collection. That polish was actually the one I was lusting so bad. when I saw a press about that collection I didn't care less about the other colors. That one just popped to me and I said out loud "I want you". That color is just fantastic.
BANGLE JANGLE - Ops, have we seen this before? I know right. Bangle Jangle looks like Cocktail Bling a lot. Just slightly different. However this polish has more a lavender tone to it than blue per say. Still very very pretty.
SCHOOL OF HARD ROCKS - such a pretty muted green toned teal. One of my favorites from the collection. Don't know how to define that color but all I have to say is ... I heart that one a lot!
BROOCH THE SUBJECT - last but not the least we have that nude among bold and pastel colors. I thought it was wonderful of Essie to throw that color in the collection. I like collections that have diversity and gives you options. I'm not top keen on nudes unless I need to get out of the door real quick then Í'll put it on just not to have my nails naked. But I really like this one cause is really pigmented and makes my job easy on application. Love all the colors in this collection. Essie really rocked on this one!!!
