I’m loving the color selection from Essie’s Navigate Her collection. There’s a little something for everyone and all will look great against a summer tan. Clearly merchants study trends, but it’s interesting that at the same time, several brands came out with nearly exact colors. I’ve listed near dupes beside each polish below for comparison.
To Buy Or Not To Buy is a light lilac purple creme nail polish with a barely there blue shimmer. In fact, the shimmer is so barely there, that you can’t even see it in the pic. It’s similar to China Glaze’s Sweet Hook from their Electropop Lights collection.
I LOVE every color in this collection and they are all perfect for spring. I do have to say though, all of the polishes were streaky. In fact, they were so streaky, that even after 3 coats each, you can still see some bald spots. I’m also so ready for Essie to get a bigger brush. It’s so thin, that when you have to put on that many coats, it’s difficult to get it streak free and takes a lot of strokes. At nearly $8 a bottle, I’m not sure that I would splurge on this combination of streaky formula and outdated thin brush.
So what do you all think of Essie’s Navigate Her collection. Do you own any of these colors or see any you’d like to pick up?
