Top Five Essie Nail Polishes

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.

    1. I completely agree, I'm mostly wearing pastels at the moment!

  9. I'm not the biggest Essie nail polish lover because I find that they chip pretty quickly on me, but I do absolutely love the shades they have!


    1. For me they're a little hit and miss, some last a really long time and others chip the first day or two.

  10. I love Jump in my Jumpsuit! Unfortunately I don't actually own any Essie nail polishes :(

    1. They have a great color range but the formula isn't the best out there. I usually only buy them when they're on sale! :)

  11. I like the sheerer shades, but Essie is one of my favourite brands x

  13. Such lovely shades! I've only got one Essie polish, but I really want to try some more shades. I always find it so hard to pick a shade as there is so much choice x
