The winter blues have kept me down for too long so I'm eager for spring to hop into full swing! Some gals like to celebrate a new season with their hair color or their lipstick--I get ready for the transition with my nail polish, which is why I was pretty excited to see some of the polishes from the new Essie Spring 2015 "Flowerista" Collection while I was out running errands recently. One of the coolest things about the "Flowerista" collection is that it marks the first line that Essie collaborated on with fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff, the first Global Color Designer for the iconic nail polish brand. Known for her eclectic aesthetic, I'm not shocked that I instantly fell for the fun variety of colors; whether your style is classic or grunge, avant-garde or super girly, there's definitely a color I think you will dig. Check out the feedback I had to share on the colors I scooped up!

At first glance, despite the hearts I had in my eyes, I didn't fail to notice that there was only one green in the collection and zero blue. I was a bit torn on how I felt about that, but it didn't diminish my excitement to test out of the collection, which I was able to do when OPI sent the shades my way. I hope you enjoy my review.
we were taken on a cool trip to San Francisco but, this time around, the iconic nail polish brand wants you to 'set your sights on the Northern Lights' with the OPI Nordic Fall/Winter 2015 Collection. Inspired by the countries of Northern Europe, this 12 polish line features 2 shimmery shades, 9 cremes and 1 glittery stand-out. I really enjoyed playing with this collection because a lot of the colors were quite obviously suited for the autumnal months whereas a few of them were traditional summer favorites that were muted for a nice transition through seasons.
