Essie Spring 2018 Bon Boy-age Collection Swatches and Review

The last year got a bit away from me due to two months travel and some serious illness, but I am finally getting caught up on some of my backlog of photo processing. Whew! Today's post is the Essie Spring 2018 Bon Boy-age Collection, which is still widely available from online retailers. It has a nice mix of bright and soft cremes that are great year round. Let's have a look!

Essie Anchor Down 1161 is a dark queen blue creme. It covers in two thin coats and has a nice medium-drying formula.

Essie Stripes & Sails 1162 is a dark teal creme. It covers in one or two thin coats and has a nice, medium-drying formula. This one is very pigmented, so I recommend keeping it off dry skin. It doesn't stain the nail, though.

Essie Bon Boy-age 1163 is a celadon creme. It covers in two thin coats and has a medium dry time. This is a lovely, soft shade in this color family!

Essie Pass-port to Sail 1164 is a cool light beige jelly with faint silver shimmer. I wore it in four thin coats for maximum opacity but this is a color that will layer nicely anywhere from one to four coats - at one coat it is a lovely, shimmery sheer. It has a medium dry time.

Essie Perfect Mate 1165 is a pink-coral creme, shown here in two thin coats. This has a medium dry time and smooth formula. It dries slightly darker and pinker than it looks in the bottle.

Essie At the Helm 1166 is a fire orange creme, worn here in two thin coats. It is a beautiful bright shade that is pretty versatile and wearable for something this bright. The dry time is medium. It dries slightly darker and redder than it looks in the bottle.

The Essie Spring 2018 Bon Boy-age Collection is full of classics that will work year round and is still widely available online. I was a bit surprised by the mix of colors at first but they work really well together. I think its namesake polish, Bon Boy-age, is my favorite. Do you have one?
