I wonder if the folks at Essie had an almanac when they were creating their Spring 2020 Nail Colors? They are all appropriately named in a Rain Theme! While you are out stocking up on toilet paper for the impending “social distancing” due to the Corona Virus, make here you stock up on the Essie Spring 2020 collection so you can do your nails while at home:) Here is the rundown:
Rainwear Don’t Care
A nice creamy putty color, Essie calls it a “Dirty Neutral.” Lately all the decorating and fashion trends have been leaning towards grey so this is actually pretty refreshing even though it is a “dirty putty”. I am getting strong vibes of the nostaligic Silly Putty toy. I can almost smell the distinct sensation of cracking open a new little egg of it! I was skeptical at first, but I really like it and think it will be a great transition for the” Atlanta Spring”, which is highly unpredictable.
A creamy yellow/creamsicle orange , that is surprisingly not bad even on pale skin. Again, the nostalgia of the color of raincoats in the 80’s! I am really enjoying it on my toes as a transitional color.
Kissed by Mist
A shimmery pink with blue undertones. It goes on very sheer and is almost a clear polish, but still stands out. I think it is a modern day take on the “French Manicure”. Great color for the office, or home office during “social distancing.”
Spring in Your Step
Shimmery purple with a splash of pink, and has a decent amount of sparkle. This did not look great on pale skin tones, but it popped on darker skin tones.
Can Dew Attitude
This is nice creamy pastel that is a very pale sage green. I think this is my favorite in the collection and really captures a hopeful mood amidst this rainy, fearful time.
Make a Splash
Shimmery blue that is not as sheer as Kissed by Mist. This is another polish that I think looks beautiful on darker skin tones, and is a wonderful transitional color.
