So as many of you know, my sister and I are HUGE shellac fans. BUT…that being said, now that I don’t live near my dear friend that usually does my nails, I have to rely on doing my nails myself! So I look to my favorite nail polish…ESSIE! My bestie Kyla loves nail polish more than anyone in the entire world…I’m convinced of it! I swear she has every nail color possible, and Essie is her absolute favorite! So needless to say, she got me hooked!
There’s two simple reasons why I personally love Essie: Quality and Quantity!
Who really has time to paint their nails all the time? I know I don’t! So when I do take the time to paint them, they need to last! When I use Essie it tends to last me two weeks! Which is pretty impressive considering it’s not shellac or gel. Another great aspect of Essie is that I don’t have to paint a million coats in order to achieve solid color. So many other nail polishes come out so thin and transparent that I have to do three coats! I can last a while without any chips so my nails still look like I just did them. Even on my toes, I feel like it lasts so long!
Everyone looks for that specific shade of a color that they saw somewhere at some point, but can never seem to find it! Well look no further! Essie has over 300 shades to choose from! 300!!!! That’s a whole lot of color. Obviously you can’t just waltz into a CVS or Walgreens and choose from all 300 colors, but you an order from their website or go on a color hunting adventure! It’s also super cute how every color has a cool name. For example, they have a bright pink color that’s called “cute as a button,” and an army green named “armed & ready.” So clever! They even have some matte shades and I’m very interested in trying them.
Some of my favorite Essie colors include; mamba (a neutral deep pink), sand tropez (a light tan), and sole mate (a dark purple/red).
My most recent obsession is a blueish periwinkle color named “bikini so teeny.” LOVES IT!!!
Do you love Essie as much as I do? What’s your favorite shade?
