If you’re completely new to the world of Essie nail polishes, then you’re definitely in for a treat! Not only do they dry really fast, but also last forever when paired with a shiny or even matte top coat (which ever is your preference).
Rather than starting out clueless, we’ll share with you some of our favourite Essie shades for all seasons.
There’s a reason everyone loves Fiji. Not only is the soft pink really easy to apply (you only need two coats for a thick, opaque shine), but it lasts forever. Every girl needs a baby pink shade in her collection, and Fiji doesn’t disappoint.
A pop of red is perfect with a tan, and Geranium is the best fusion of orange and red that we’ve ever seen. If you do suffer from breakage, carry the polish in your handbag to disguise any cracks ASAP!
Not only is Sand Tropez the perfect shade of nude, but it’s also really quick and easy to apply. Just one coat gives a ‘your nails but better look’ which is ideal for the office or corporate world.
Every girl needs a shade like Wicked in their collection. Not only does it suit every skin tone, but it’s a great alternative to black which is often a harsh shade for the office.
Splash of Grenadine
The perfect flirty pink/purple shade which brings a unique splash of colour to your nails.
Just as the name suggests, this shade is a deep red wine which is beautiful in the winter months. Just one coat is enough to look opaque, but double it for a moody red.
This shade gives you white with a twist, and looks incredible on short, groomed nails all year round. You might need to apply a few coats for a pigmented colour, but the pay off is truly one of a kind.
A Cut Above
If a glitter top coat is your kind of thing, then you’ve probably heard about this shade before. The pink diamond lacquer is completely on trend, and dries super-fast!
A unique shade of blue-green-grey which is best for achieving a fresh, polished manicure. Don’t forget to apply a glossy top coat for best results.
One of their most iconic shades, Ballet Slippers is a classic pale pink which has a sheer finish. Ideal for all seasons, and all skin tones.
