Inspiration: Spring ushers in a warm, high-spirited bouquet of pretty shades and sultry silhouettes. At the Spring 2010 shows, designers expressed a super-sexy return to elegance with a pop art palette of colors. Body-clinging pieces with flurries of tulle, silk and organza flowed alongside crepe skirts, linen kimonos and shantung gowns in never-ending shades of lilac, rose and cerise.
“When I go to the fashion shows, I don’t just see clothes, I see artistic expression and color,” says Essie Weingarten, founder and president of Essie Cosmetics, Ltd. “Art and fashion go hand in hand, and this season’s collections reminded me of the pop art fashion explosion. My spring color collectionis a reflection of that movement.”
The collection includes a palette of shades created to compliment the essence of Spring:
Van D’go: Deliciously ripe melon
Tart Deco: Dreamy creamy coral
Red Nouveau: Fiery hot red pepper
Pop Art Pink: Sheer chiffon pink
Lilacism: Satiny smooth lilac
Neo Whimsical: Light as a featherrose-plum
For polish to last longer, Essie suggests using a base, like First Base Base Coat
and top coat, like Good to Go!
– the basecoat prepares the polish to adhere and the top coat seals in color. Also, wait 2 minutes in between color applications so that the polish can set. A few days later, apply Shine-e
to refresh polish to a top shine finish.
The Art of Spring collection will be available February 1, 2010.
