I basically cover the whole rainbow in my collection and I always return to their colours when I’m not sure what to paint on my nails. Here is my humble little collection… (sarcasm, obviously)

Fifth Avenue – a red-orange beauty.
Trombone – a slightly sheerer raspberry red but one that I really love whenever I wear it. Although I bought it mostly for the name (little known fact – I used to play the trombone).
Jag-U-Are – probably my favourite of the red bunch, a blue-y red with a golden gleam to it.
After Sex – wahey, a risque name. A similar one to Jag-U-Are but slightly more purple.
Scarlett O’Hara – again, similar to the previous two but deeper. Do I need all three? No…
Leading Lady – a deep red with a whole lot of glitter running through it.

A Crewed Interest – a light peach colour.
Meet Me At Sunset – 
a deep orange shade.

Absolutely Shore – the perfect mint.
Mint Candy Apple –
an Essie classic, I love it – it’s a sort of robin’s egg blue-green.
Where’s My Chaffeur? –
straight up teal. 
Naughty Nautical –
deeper teal with a bit of silver shimmer.

Rock The Boat – light, light blue with a teensy bit of shimmer.
Bikini So Teeny – darker and bolder than Rock The Boat, another favourite.
Coat Azure – my very first Essie polish, a medium blue with a bit of shimmer.
In The Cab-ana –
a bright aqua/teal (I struggled deciding whether to put it with the greens or the blues)
Strut Your Stuff – bright, in your face, almost neon mid-blue.
Mesmerise – a royal dark blue.
Style Cartel – my most recent Essie purchase, the perfect not-too-dark navy.
After School Boy Blazer – an almost black shade but in some lights it’s deep dark navy.

Go Ginza – beautiful lavender, perfect for Spring, I’ve found.
Sexy Divide – a shimmering deep purple (looks cool in the bottle too)
Sole Mate – a deep, dark berry – I wear this one to death in winter.

Ballet Slippers – the ultimate Essie shade. A sheer, pale pink.
Sugar Daddy – very similar to Ballet Slippers but with a little bit of shimmer.
Jazz – A warm-toned beige. Another one I bought for the name (another fact, I used to play jazz trombone, yes I’m a little bit lame).
Chinchilly – I love this shade, a greyish taupe that looks oh so chic.

As I said, I truly cover most of the rainbow but what can I say, I love my Essie polishes. The bottle is classy, the brush is great and I can normally find them pretty cheap. At the moment they’re 2 for $20 at Priceline which is a pretty great deal so if any of these shades have caught your attention make sure you go and check it out!

      Thank you! Definitely some gorgeous colours 🙂

  • Oooh. I didn’t know they’re 2 for $20. Decent! I agree Absolutely Shore is the perfect mint. Truly one of my favourite polishes ever. Go Ginza looks gorgeous 🙂

      yeah I think I saw somewhere that they were on sale! Hopefully they still are as I’m planning a trip to Priceline soon… Go Ginza is actually surprisingly lovely!

  • I’ve always been infatuated with Essie polishes, but only recently have gotten a few more shades! I would go ahead and buy a bunch if I didn’t already have a (full!) nail polish drawer! I love the look of Absolutely Shore and A crewed interest!

      Absolutely Shore is one of my favourites! Even though I have far too many nail polishes I always seem to pick up more Essies…
