I am sooo keeping my eyes out for the new Essie spring 2011 ‘French affair’ collection, inspired by 1960’s glamour. I’m getting bored of the dark vamp nail polish; it’s affecting my mood blah!

Every time I try on flirty feminine colors, they always appear to be sheer, which I really don’t like, as it makes me feel like I’m 12 with those transparent Barbie color nails! But this French affair splashes offers opaque coverage yuppiii!  My favorite would have to be Sand Tropez and Topless and Barefoot…I haven’t got the guts to try on the baby blue Coat Azure for the fear of feeling like an avatar! It suits Katy Perry a lot but unfortunately not for me…Also I discovered that Essie is ‘3-free’ which means it contains no formaldehyde, DBP or toluene!

Here’s what Essie Weingarten has to say about her new collection “I think every woman has a little Brigitte Bardot in her, and this palette coaxes her out,”

Eva Chen Bannister, Beauty Director (and blogger!) for Teen Vogue, uploaded via twitter an Essie new Spring 2011 Collection breakfast event that she luckily attended.
