Hi guys! Today I will be showing you swatches from this year’s Retro Revival collection from Essie.

Pure chiffon is a light peachy polish with fine shimmer that covers in two coats. I put three coats of the polish on my middle finger, but I actually prefer it with only two coats. This polish was originally released in 2001.

Bold beauty is a dark and vampy red crelly that dries super shiny (not top coat) and covers in three coats. I can’t find when this was originally released either, so if you know please let me know.

What do you think of this collection? I think that none of the shades are super unique, but I really do like both Chastity and Bold beauty.

  1. I tried to find this collection on an official site, but couldn’t succeed. What kind of collection is this? Is it a kind of left over from a previous US collection sold in the EU? (I had experienced this with the previous retro rerival colours that appeared in the Netherlands 1 year later than in the US, and even the usual collection header was missing, it was sold like if it was a shame to sell it 1 year after the US launch, most likely the remaining peaces… Which I think it was. It WAS a shame to sell the left over priced as any other pieces in the permanent or in a new seasonal collection.)

    1. I think the last Retro Revival collection was a little bit late to Sweden too, maybe two months after the US release. Which is a bit strange but, oh well. I had no idea that this year’s Retro Revival collection was so hard to find! Someone told me on Instagram that they were not available in the US, only in Europe. I bought the polishes back in February. When I google the collection it looks like it was only available in the US for a very limited time (a few weeks in March).
