Ask me to name one nail polish brand that I could happily use for the rest of my life, it’d be an easy one. I’m obsessed with all things Essie. From the huge selection of shades, the formula, the brushes – these polishes just tick all the boxes. With Christmas approaching, I’ve pulled together my favourite seasonal Essie polishes.
Sole Mate is just the perfect deep berry shade. This shade is a real crowd pleaser and looks so professional when layered under a glossy topcoat. It looks incredible alone or with a glitter accent nail to make things feel a little more festive.
Penny Talk is a brand new addition to my collection and it’s safe to say, I am obsessed. In the bottle it looks like your average gold metallic polish but on the nails, it becomes the rose gold shade of my dreams. Now metallic nails aren’t my usual thing but this polish may have converted me. Annoyingly this shade isn’t readily available in the UK but if you’re US based, it’s one not to miss.
Cocktail Bling is a go-to shade in my stash. The grey shade manages to avoid being dull with a hint of blue that just looks effortlessly chic. It looks incredible paired with any shade of glitter accompaniments and it’s such a versatile hue.
Summit of Style is one of the only glitter shades that I find worth the effort. The coppery gold is unlike any shade I’ve seen before and makes for a grown up glitter look. It looks amazing with red, purples and navy blues as well as against a stark white nail.
Luxedo is the ultimate blackberry hue and I *think * the first ever Essie shade I owned. I love a nearly but not quite black shades. Again to brighten up the vampy nature of this polish, a glitter ombre design would be perfect.
Do you love Essie polishes as much as me? What are your favourite festive shades?
