Essie Spring 2021 Collection – Swatches & Review

Did you say you wanted more spring collections? No? TOO BAD, WE HAVE MORE SPRING COLLECTIONS. Tis’ really the season, and I always love the “start” of a new year of polish. And as always, I’m writing about spring as it snows outside, we love the Midwest. But at least today it’s cute snow, it’s fluffy snowflakes lazily falling, it’s so nice to sit inside and watch. And write about polish.

Anyways, this next one is the Essie release for Spring 2021. This is 6 shades, featuring 3 creams and 3 more shimmery shades. I picked this up from my one true love, PolishPick.com aka forever the best places for me to grab mainstream polishes. This color story is definitely a more unique one for spring, and we have some “nontraditional” colors. I loved the different range of colors we have here, and of course there are only so many pastels that can be done!

So let’s get right into the swatches!

Orly ‘Day Trippin’ Spring 2021 Collection – Swatches & Review

We’re continuing right along with spring collections, and I’ve been loving all of the different and more unique color stories that have come out this year and season! Of course, I’ll always have a soft spot for pastels and light cream shades, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t living for these beautiful cream shades. And speaking of beautiful creams, today we’re looking at the Orly release for Spring 2021!

This came with my Orly Color Pass! I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about Color Pass so many times before, but of course for new readers I like to summarize it. It’s a service through Orly where you pay up front once, and then throughout the year you get 4 Orly collections automatically shipped to you. Each box also always comes with different little extras – this one came with a full sized bottle of Orly Bonder, one of my favorite base coats, and a cute little key chain. It’s great IF you’re already planning on buying each of the collections anyways, like I do. But of course, if you’re only interested in individual shades, there are websites to buy them as well! It’s a great value – again, if you’re already planning on buying the collections or just want to try out some more Orly products!

Anyways, this collection is called ‘Day Trippin’. This collection is their traditional 6 bottle release, and features 6 rich cream shades. I loved this color story all together, and can’t wait to dive into swatches already, so let’s do it!

OPI ‘Hollywood’ Spring 2021 Collection – Swatches & Review

Look at her getting back to blogging in a timely manner! We did it, 2021 is really a new year, new me moment. Alright enough kidding myself, but I really have been feeling so inspired and back in love with blogging again, and I’m just so ready to talk about all of the makeup and nail polish with you all! I’ve been feeling more productive and back into more of a routine, and I’m so excited to talk about so much nail polish and makeup with all of you.

So let’s get into it! It’s officially spring here on the blog! That’s right, as we’re in the middle of a Polar Vortex here in Chicago, as I let my faucets drip to help keep my pipes from freezing over this next week of single digit temperatures, we’re talking about spring on the nails. Spring waits for no one in the nail polish world.

Spring collections are dropping from our mainstream brands, and OPI is kicking it all off for us. This is the ‘Hollywood’ collection for Spring 2021. With this collection, also celebrating 40 years of OPI, they say they’re returning to their birthplace in Hollywood. There are a lot of light pinks and peachy creams, some bright pops of jewel-tones and a metallic and a scattered holographic shade. Overall it’s a varied color palette that we haven’t seen before and I was so excited.

Of course I bought this from my favorite site, PolishPick.com. As I say in every review about them, they have the best OPI prices and allow me to grab all of these collections to talk about with you all. Definitely go check them out.

We have a traditional 12 shade collection to look through, so let’s get right into the swatches!
