Essie Spring 2014_Essie Hide & Go ChicNot two weeks after Essie Resort Fling showed itself, the first Essie Spring 2014 collection images have seeped onto the Internet. This is Essie Hide & Go Chic, a fetching set of winter’s-finally-over-yaaaaay shades set to hit this coming April.

Essie Spring 2014_Essie Hide & Go Chic_Style Hunter_Spin the Bottle_Truth or FlareThese first three Essie Spring 2014 polishes are Style Hunter, Spin the Bottle, and Truth or Flare (we wonder whether Essie meant “flair,” which is completely different from “flare”).

Whatcha think? Flare or Flair?

The game is Truth or Dare, so the polish is Truth or Flare. Lol, who can forget playing?

That’s as reasonable a supposition as any, Bunny. I’m just curious whether they mean Flair as in “panache,” or Flare as in “the cut of your pants.” *grin*

I think they mean Flare as in a flash of light or dazzle…so truth or dazzle!

Ha hah! I like that angle, Jenn. I really should ask ‘em.

This is what Essie dot com describes it as: ‘sexy. fun. totally glamorous. vintage blue denim fits perfectly, honestly, these jeans always make you look fab.’. So I guess it does refer to the cut-of-your-pants… Or should I say jeans? :)

Fashion Playground looks a lot like Mint Candy Apple in these shots.


Janine 13 January 2014 at 5:50 pm

It does, doesn’t it, Lisa? I’m not a fan of pick-up art generally because the colour representation is often a bit off. Romper Room is pale in some images, and almost neon in others. Won’t know the real shades until we get hands on the actual product, and even then the colour gets twisted from computer screen to computer screen. Oy.

They meant flare. They compare the color to denim in the description.


Janine 21 February 2014 at 6:45 am

Likely you’re right, Jennifer. My grammar-geek side just had to ask. Flare and flair get mixed up all the time here now on account one of the biggest fashion magazines in Canada is called Flare, the spelling of which they decided upon because it looks better visually. That it also works as a magazine title for fashion was a happy coincidence.

Hm, nothing extraordinary in these colors from Essie this spring. We’ve seen them all but I must admit I am secretly happy when colors in seasonal collections are nothing special because I get sad whe they get discontinued or hard to find :)
