Congratulations, Essie!

Essie has to be the brand with the most boring nail polish shades ever. No wonder that every ''colored'' nail polish shade released by them becomes a hit. With all that pinks, sheers and reds, it can't do anything else but stand out. I don't care about 150 shades of red cremes. I only want three - vampy, classic and another one that's in between.

But this time, Essie did it! Their new Resort Collection wow-ed me. It's still very on the safe side, but none of the shades is sheer or red. That's a progress, right? Although... the blue and green one do remind me of last years North Fork collection a bit... hmmm. I still want them all.


You can see the swatches on these blogs: Body & Soul & The Nailphile.

Are you also excited about these shades?

Thanks for looking!

  1. the single red I own is the essence from you - I hate reds, pinks and nudes! but I have two bottles of essie - chinchilly and plumski, which are amazing! I also had MCA, sag harbor and huckle buckle which I sold few days ago :D
    btw, took a photo of my whole collection - 100 polishes :D

  6. I actually love Essie lol. It was my go to brand when I got out of beauty school. I have alot of the nudes for when I need them, and I love the reddish-pinks they do. This collex looks great

    I have never seen a single Essie polish I wanted. Soooo boring! I don't like these colors either. I'm not a fan of cremes, and I don't understand why anyone would want to put taupe on their nails.

  8. I totally agree..pinks, reds and cremes in the 1,000's...BORING! But this collection has definitely caught my eye...now lets hope they are not thin and streaky and then I will really be happy. :)

  10. Wow they look really good! I specially like playa del patinum, i think that's a colour i've never seen. So sad that in my country Essie is really expensive... but at least the bottle is big.

  13. I'm a big fan of cremes, but there still aren't many Essie polishes I want. I'd put taupe on my nails anytime! =)

  16. Wow, I must agree that most of their colors are boring, but these are really cute! I don't buy Essie though, I'm not a fan of their bottles. Silly reason but their bottles just really turn me off.
