With so many colors to choose from, Essie is one of my favorite nail polish brands. They are great quality, they’re not too pricey and did I mention the colors?! I’ve built up quite the collection but I’ve narrowed it down to my top five colors that I like to wear throughout the year.
Haute in the Heat: This hot pink shade is perfect for the summer! It’s bright, but not neon, so it makes quite a statement on the nails. Unlike some other Essie colors, this pink is incredibly pigmented—sometimes I only use one coat! It's also really long lasting. I have this on my toes right now and it's held strong for the past two weeks, no chips!
Butler Please: One of my first Essie nail polishes, this bluish purple is dark but bright at the same time. The color is so unique and that makes it my favorite blue nail color. It looks amazing with a tan!
Back in the Limo: As the weather warms up I’ve been turning to this sheer peach polish more and more. If you want the color in the bottle you need to build up the layers, but I like to use it as a ‘your nails but better’ sort of shade. It’s also a great base for a French manicure!
Mint Candy Apple: Has there ever been a more perfect mint shade? This color works for so many seasons and occasions. Depending on what you’re wearing, it can be subtle or the pop of color that can complete a look. I’m obsessed with it. This is another one of those uber-pigmented colors where you can get away with one coat.
Jump in my Jumpsuit: This luxurious dark red nail polish is one of my favorites for Autumn/Winter. It looks amazing alone or with a matte topcoat on top, and I love to wear it to fancy dinners or with a little black dress.
