My Essential Essie Collection.

After getting my nail polish collection down and sticking to essentials I've noticed colours that I have in rotation quite often so it made more sense to stick to certain shades. With Essie nail polish, I've had a few of their nail polishes before but I've warmed to the brand more in the past couple of months and I've ended up with a handful of favourites.
I normally stick to white for my toes and I was previously a devotee for OPI Alpine Snow but I noticed I could never finish a bottle before it's goes sticky/stringy and unusable for me. I made the switch to Essie Blanc where I get more use from a bottle. It might be the formula, I'm not sure.
On my fingers because I've decided to keep my nails at a medium length - if the length will keep. I do like a sheer wash of colour sometimes and a pink like Limo-Scene or Sugar Daddy is good for that. These are also colours that can be used together to get another colour out of. For those days when I just want that baby pink, Fiji is perfect.
Shades like Sand Tropez, Spin The Bottle & Lady Like I like to wear a lot when I'm wearing beige or black - when am I not in black? The shades I'm using are good enough for me to transition from season to season for my personal taste which is a win.
Blanc pure snowy white / Limo-Scene sheer pastel pink / Sugar Daddy sweet and shimmery pink / Fiji opaque, creamy pastel pink / Not Just A Pretty Face naturally pinkish nude / Spin The Bottle semi-sheer nude / Sand Tropez soft sandy beige / Lady Like soft mauve.

Purchase: Essie Blanc, Limo-Scene, Sugar Daddy, Fiji, Not Just A Pretty Face, Spin The Bottle, Sand Tropez, Lady Like.

Unfortunately Essie isn't cruelty free.
