Spotted: Essie Summer 2014 Neons Collection

The annual summer neons from Essie have arrived! You can see how this year's shades compare to last year's by clicking here. I think I might like this year's a bit more than last year's, although this year's shades don't seem quite as bright and neon-like (more on that in a moment).

Many thanks to my pal Emi of Project Swatch for this one. Emi spotted the Summer 2014 Neons at Rite Aid this week and was nice enough to share pics:

I'm Addicted, Sittin' Pretty*

*NOTE: the first bottle above is NOT Sittin' Pretty, it is Play Date (permanent core shade). This actually helps because you can compare it to Sittin' Pretty, which is the one behind it. You can see that Sittin' Pretty is a bit cooler in tone than Play Date.

Chills & Thrills, Too Taboo

Vices Versa, Serial Shopper 

NOTE: The third bottle on the left is actually Mojito Madness (permanent core shade), so it's nice that you can compare it to Vices Versa.

To see swatches of this collection, check out Beauty Geeks' post here. Karen swatched these alone and over white, and they DEFINITELY become more neon-like when worn over a white polish (which was suggested with the Summer 2013 Neons as well--that collection even included a white polish in the display).

Have you spotted the Essie Summer 2014 Neons in your area yet? Thoughts?

Thanks again, Emi, for the great sighting and pics!


  1. Some of these would make great pedis for summer! I'm excited.

  2. Ohhh I'm excited about these, I know what I'm doing tomorrow!

  3. I think I need Too Taboo, to add to my never-ending collection of berry/red-violet shades of nail polish. Hahaha does anyone else have a particular hue that they just can't get enough variations of?

  4. Ooo these are gorgeous, I wonder when we'll have them over here in the UK :)


  5. I saw full and untouched display at kohl's yesterday

  6. Wow!!! Love each and every one or these colors! My nails are gonna be looking nice this summer!
