Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
For this Spring, Essie has a new collection of six beautiful creams. With a few unconventional shades, the Spring 2016 Collection is in stores now! To see swatches of all the colors, click.......

Sunshine State of Mind:
A soft coral-orange, this is a lovely cream polish with a decently pigmented formulation. I used two coats for the swatches below.
Sunshine State of Mind, two coats with no top coat.
Lounge Lover:
This is a baby coral-pink cream. The formulation is slightly uneven and sheer so I had to use three coats for the swatches below.
Lounge Lover, three coats with no top coat.
High Class Affair:
This is a lovely neutral nude. Like Lounge Lover, this shade is slightly sheer and uneven; three coats were used for the swatches below.
High Class Affair, three coats with no top coat.
Off Tropic:
A deep and inky forest green, Off Tropic is absolutely stunning. It's not your typical spring shade but definitely a must-have for fans of green polish.
Off Tropic, two coats with no top coat.
Pool Side Service:
My favorite shade out of the six, Pool Side Service is a lovely smokey teal. The formulation is absolutely stunning. Buttery, smooth, and super pigmented, this shade was almost a one-coater.

Shades On:
A lovely medium lavender, Shades On was impressively pigmented, especially given that lavender polishes aren't always very easy to work with. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Here is a quick preppy plaid stamping design I did using Pool Side Service and Lounge Lover. Overall, this collection is very impressive. I like the unconventional color selections, and the majority of the shades were super pigmented and creamy!
