Essie Maximillian Strasse Her

Essie Maximillian Strasse HerEssie’s Madison Ave-hue collection has taken me for a tour around the globe. First it was Hip-Anema, inspired by Ipanema, then Avenue Maintain, inspired by Paris. Now we have Maximillian Strasse Her (seriously, what a mouthful  which was inspired by one of Munich’s royal avenues. Maximilianstraße is famous for its high-end shopping.

Essie describes Maximillian Strasse Her as a cool grey creme. Essie, I love you, but that description is just ridiculous. Maximillian Strasse Her has too much green in it to be called grey. At least in my opinion!

The formula is fantastic. I used just two coats in my swatches.

For my particular skintone I don’t think this is the best polish. But Munich is one of my favorite places on the planet so I just had to have it! It is a lovely color for spring. It’s subtle yet a bit unexpected.

That being said, seriously Essie with the name! I’m still not sure how they stuffed Maximillian Strasse Her on the bottom of a nail polish bottle!

  2. Love it! For some reason this colour looks really green to me.

  3. This looks as if it would be a close dupe if revlon Muse….

  5. I think that Muse has a pond/mud colour – I hate it. Don’t see it in this Essie…
