Eternal Optimist is described as spiced tea rose. It's a band aid but better color on me, and a bit more pink in real life. I don't think it looks too great on me though.
Flawless is supposed to be a cherry blossom pink, it's more bubble gum in real life. My camera doesn't pick up pinks well in artificial lighting.
Status Symbol is a tame hot pink. Even though it's been done a million times I know already that this is going to be a favorite spring/summer pedicure color for me.
Mesmerize is royal blue amazing-ness. My favorite from the collection.
Essie spring is currently for sale and should be relatively easy to find. I really want to applaud Essie for coming out with two awesome collections in a row. Winter was brillant with those purples and now with Mesmerize. Maybe one day she'll come up with a collection filled with nothing but jewel toned greens, purples, and blues. You hear that Essie?
