Essie have released a new collection ‘Wild Nudes’.
Adding four new permanent shades to their core collection 💅
What I found interesting about this collection is that it has the word nudes in the title but it’s anything but nude. See Nude in terms are shades that are within skin tones which is a wide range as skin tones themselves are a whole colour palette – are you seriously one toned? As much as we would love to be even and one toned it’s never fully there, so we are looking at whites, pinks, yellows, beiges and browns to give us the nude palettes. Whereas Neutrals are rain-cloud grey, khaki, beige (and yes even black).
exposed: mossy green with a slight white overcast
clothing optional (hero shade): lighter sienna brown
winning streak: dark purple with a greyish tone
I’m loving that after some nail breaks in late March that my nails have grown back and I can indulge in all that essie are offering right now, especially this collection – that I love, I was surprised with the shades because they are neutrals and the wild nudes title works if you think about it. I’ve been wearing bare with me for a minute now but I’m feeling to switch over to exposed or winning streak ( to be honest I can’t decide). The formula and finish is very opaque, that I only needed 2 coats for bare with me, the formula is slightly thick but not gloopy or too runny. The finish you get such a beautiful shine even without a top coat it’s unreal.
What are you loving out of this collection?
