Essie's new collection of spring polishes are all named after fashionable streets throughout the world, so if you're wondering where that itch to travel is coming from, it's probably your nails. The shades include "Madison Ave-Hue" ("upper east side" pink), "Go Ginza" (soft cherry blossom pink), "Avenue Maintain" ("Parisian" blue), "Bond With Whomever" ("London" lilac), "Maximillian Strasse Her" (cool grey green), and "Hip-Anema" (poppy-bright red orange).
As always the colors look so good together you hate to rip them apart, but as Essie Weingarten shares, "Everyone wants to know my favorite city. But just like a spectrum of color, it's not about choosing one." In short, there's no need to tearfully sing "Jetplane" as you part from any of them: They're each $8 a bottle and will be available on essie.com in March.
