My Favourite Essie ColoursWednesday, February 10, 2016
Essie is probably up there as my all time favourite nail polish brand. There's just so much to choose from, and they're one of the longest lasting nail colours on my nails, usually nail colours will literally chip by me just looking at them, but Essie always seems to be a little more hardwearing. Over the past few years, I've been steadily adding to my Essie collection, one here and there, I mean after all they are £8.99 a pop, so y'know can't afford to be too spendy these days.
However, I had a little sort out of my collection the other week and thought I'd make a post all about my faves so in case you're thinking of having a little treat soon, then I've got you covered!
Also I just have to put in a little side note, but Fiji is also up there in my fave Essie's, it's just that I've run out of it and need to get a new bottle soon but if you want an opaque White/pink then that is your ticket!
Minimalistic: This is probably my fave Essie polish right now, I bought it in NYC and you can read here why it's my fave and probably most special Essie colour. It's a thick baby pink colour, which looks amazing on your nails. I do hate that it doesn't seem to be readily available in the UK which means it doesn't have the thick brush which I do kinda hate, but I can get over it. Please Essie if you read this, can you bring this colour to the UK and I'll be forever in your favour!
Blossom Dandy: This was part of the Spring Collection in 2015, and it was top of my list of what to buy when I went to Vegas last May. It's an aqua blue/mint colour which is one of my faves for Spring/Summer. It also will now be one of my special colours as this was the exact nail polish I was wearing when Henry proposed back in August!
Cocktail Bling: I love this cool toned blue grey, I think it's a little different to many other colours I own. It's quite sophisticated, and is nice with a silver glitter in the Christmas/winter time. I'm pretty sure it's part of the main collection, and it doesn't really look much in the bottle, but it's definitely one of my favourite winter Essie colours.
Muchi Muchi : Oh look another pale baby pink! What a surprise eh? I like this one as it's a slightly more sheer, and gives you a really nice manicured finish to your nails. It's got a wide brush which I always find makes painting your nails a bit easier, it's also not as thick as Fiji so it's a bit easier to apply, you could apply one coat to just have a swash of colour, or build it up to two or three coats for a more opaque colour.
Summit Of Style: This is up there as one of my new fave glitter colours, it's a bronze chunky glitter which i got from Fragrance Direct for the bargainious £2.99. I basically wore it throughout the whole of December, and even now I think you can wear it all year round cause it's THAT pretty. Totally worth the ball ache of taking it of with nail polish remover. It looks so good with white nail polish, just a little tip for you there!
Mint Apple Candy: I had to include this colour as it was the first Essie I ever bought, it's very similar to Blossom Dandy but not as bright, MCA is a little more pastel-y. This is probably one of the most cult Essie colours so it should always be within the core line up, it's absolutely perfect for Spring time, and looks amazing with a tan!
Looking back, these faves are all very similar so I must apologise for that, butttt hear me out when these are my favourites and without sounding too silly, I do love them for separate reasons even though some of them are almost twinning.
Other favourites are Absolutely Shore (very hard to get hold of though :( ) & Wicked (perf for October/November time)
Essie's I want to add to my collection;
