Essie 'Colours in the Wild' Summer 2014

Inspired by women with instinctive style, tribal prints and safaris, Essie's Colours in the Wild collection for summer 2014 is a bright burst of powerful, punchy nail polishes that really stand out from the usual seasonal offerings of pastels and neons. These are real colours.

As always, this is a six-strong edit which has been curated to appeal to almost everyone. There is the requisite nude, a chic taupe-based shade, a blue verging on neon and some really earthy, summer colours that remind me of vibrant sunsets.

Urban Jungle, Fierce; No Fear; Strut Your Stuff; Ruffles & Feathers; Roarrrrange; Haute in the Heat

Apologies for the lack of swatches - I just didn't have the time before the sun went in and the rain came. Formula-wise, these are cream-based; highly pigmented and good in two coats. Usually, in these kind of posts, I pick out my standout shades. However, I feel like this collection is strong across the board - there is not one shade here I wouldn't reach for and so, I don't feel like I can play favourites. The most striking to my eye is the blue Strut Your Stuff though!
