Summer of Essie

I really like nail polish. A lot. It always fits and makes me feel a little more put together than I would without it. I’d always been pretty loyal to one brand of polish but then I met Essie. Essie’s packaging caught my eye, that sweet little rounded rectangle…and all those pretty colors? Love them. I became obsessed bought a few bottles and have been hooked since.

Recently, I was lucky enough to get a sampler pack of Essie’s Summer collection nail polishes.* I love these colors so much! Usually, when I have my fingers painted, it’s with Sand Tropez because it’s a nice neutral color and looks professional. It’s also a light enough color that if it chips it’s not super noticeable. But, when I got the Summer collection from Essie, I branched out. Some of my favorites are Mojito Madness, Turquoise and Caicos, and Off The Shoulder. The Off The Shoulder was a surprise to me as I don’t usually do lighter pinks, but this one is such a pretty shade. I have used the colors on my fingers and toes and love them on both.

Even I haven’t had a chance to use all the polish, but the summer has been a lot brighter and shinier so far!

Do you have a favorite Essie color? What shade should I try next?

*I was not financially compensated for my review of the awesome Essie product, but did get the Essie Summer Collection at no cost. Thanks Essie!

  1. How funny. I won three Essie colors in a Pinterest contest. They are the Lands’ End summer colors. I haven’t tried them yet. I am not very good at painting my nails.

    1. Oh, I haven’t seen the Land’s End colors! I’ll have to check them out. I’m sure you’ll love the polish 🙂

  2. Those colors are just gorgeous. I’ve had dreams where I was given a room full of makeup. Not kidding. You’re living my dream, Sherry. 🙂

    1. I’ve had the same dream! I’ve also had the dream about hair products. I wonder if there is something wrong with us?

  3. I have a new obsession with Gelish nail color that I get at Sally’s beauty supply. It doesn’t chip and for me that is huge because no matter what I put on my nails it chipped after a day or so. But I do love the Essie colors.

    1. Heather~I saw you post a picture the other day. I will have to check them out! I try not to go in to Sally’s often…because I want everything.
