My Essie Polish Collection

Essie Polish nail polish varnish collection review
My name is Emma and I am a nail polish addict. Ever since I mentioned my slightly very out of control nail polish collection in my recent Beauty Lover Tag post I have had a few requests for a post about it. My entire collection was way too daunting but I figured I could handle a one brand collection post. Essie is the brand I have collected the most of with 45 colours and 3 treatment polishes. I have always been obsessed with the cute bottles and the colour selection so I figured I would take you through each of the shades I have collected over the years.

Before anyone makes the point that no one needs this many nail polishes, I am well aware. I am even aware of the fact that there are many of these I don't really wear. For that reason I have marked my absolute favourites that I have reached for over and over again and I would readily repurchase with an asterisk (*).

If I had to pick 5 favourites from my whole collection they would probably be Chinchilly (hands down fav!), Splash of Grenadine, Sole Mate, Lady Like and Fiji. It is so hard to choose just five though so make sure you check out all my favourites that I have marked with an asterisk. 

To finish off, here are some nail swatches and manis I have created my Essie collection. Which is your favourite?
I would to love to know what your favourite Essie shades and if there are any missing from my collection that I simply have to get my hands on.

  3. I'm getting a little Essie collection as well! I tend to only buy a few when it's 40% off Makeup though. Love the thoroughness of this post.

    Saving for future nail polishing buying 😂

    1. Aw thanks so much, Kathy! I do find some of the lighter ones tricky because you need so many coats but they are stunning if you put the effort in.
