Parlez-vous Francais? Essie’s new French Affair Collection

Spring 2011 French Affair collection by Essie

I’m obsessing over Essie’s newest Spring collection inspired by none other than fashion’s epicenter: France. Aptly named “ French Affair,” it pretty much reminds me of the first time I went to Paris myself — love at first sight. The 6-piece collection feature the prettiest statement-making pastels that’s seriously making me forget about the blizzard outside right now. With the exception of the Coat Azure, which is a little more bold (but still the most different hue of blue I’ve ever tried on) most of them are delicate, feminine. They sent me the collection to preview and you will probably see me rocking them for the next few months straight. The problem is it’s hard to choose which one’s my favorite — which one are you loving here?

The collection’s namesake, French Affair (above) a “tres innocent pink” reminds me of a 60s glamour girl. I picture Topless and Barefoot (below), a coquettish peach, to be worn at a spring cocktail party.

Nice is Nice


Nice is Nice (above), a supremely lovely lilac is refreshingly spring-ready. Sand Tropez (below) is so sophisticated looking — wear it to work, or for a night out with your LBD.

Coat Azure


You definitely won’t go unnoticed if you decide to go with the shimmery Parisian blue, Coat Azure (above). I don’t think it totally suited my skin tone, but it could be good to shake things up a bit now and then. On the other end of the spectrum, there is Kisses and Bisses, a barely-there iridescent pink.

OK voting time! Which one is your favorite? I’m torn between A French Affair, Nice is Nice, and Topless and Barefoot.

French Affair will be available in February 2011, $8 each at essie.com.
