Spring has sprung! Now bring on that warm weather and it'll finally feel like it. Sigh. I think Connecticut is supposed to be getting freezing cold weather next week? Fan-freakin'-tastic. Until than, it can be spring on my nails with the Essie Hide & Go Chic Spring Collection 2014. I was ecstatic to see this whole collection in my Rite Aid Network box for this month. Squee!

PS. Happy 300th post to me! Woohoo!

Essie Hide & Go Chic Collection

Spin The Bottle is your run of the mill pink-toned nude. Two coats went on nice and smooth. Personally, I love this color because I love, love nude nails but I know it might not do much for others.

Romper Room is a sweet light pink. Unfortunately, this did go on a bit streaky. Three coats seemed to clear that up and smooth it out. This will look SO cute on tanned toesies!

Fashion Playground is a light mint with a subtle silver shimmer. As you can see, this went on a bit streaky. I noticed the formula on this one was kind of thin. Three coats (like Romper Room) seemed to smooth it out. I'm so bummed that the shimmer isn't as bold as it is in the bottle but it's a gorgeous color.

Truth or Flare is a dusty cornflower blue. The formula on this one was also super thin and runny which caused some streaky. This was two coats but I think a third (it's the magic number!) would've filled it all in. Such a fun color for spring!

Hide & Go Chic is a light electric blue. It's Essie Butler Please's lighter and less bold sister. No issues with formula and streaking here!

Style Hunter is a bright cherry red. I'm SO in love with this color. The color may not look like anything special but the formula is superb! 

Overall, sure, this collection is typical Spring pastels but Style Hunter and Hide & Go Chic really add some pizzazz to it. There were a couple of formula issues but nothing that you can't work with. My faves would have to be Romper Room, Fashion Playground and Style Hunter. Which one's are your favorites?
