Essie is my first love. I love the colours, the formulation and most of all the brush. I’m getting giddy just talking about it.
Over the past 4-5 years I’ve slowly built up my Essie collection. The following colours are just a few of my most-loved colours for the Autumn season. I will admit that it was really hard to pick just 8 favourites (it was originally supposed to be five, oops), but I truly limited myself the best I could.
Here are 8 Essie shades that I loooove wearing at this time of the year.
Of course, Autumn screams red loud and proud. On the left is Fifth Avenue, one of my first ever Essie polishes. This is the classic, bright red. It’s a necessity.
In the middle is one of my newest polishes, In The Lobby. You really can’t go wrong with a deep red/purple shade. I think this will be my most worn polish over the next few months. And on the right is Twin Sweater Set. This is more of a darker bright red – if that makes sense? I was looking for this exact shade for years until Essie finally released it last year. I have faithfully loved it ever since.
Friends, white is in. You need the perfect white on your nails right now! Private Weekend is the best white nail polish I have come across. It’s not too sheer (only needs two good coats) and it’s not too light. It’s a bright white with tiny little sparkles – what more do you need?!
Pink is a classic. Every season requires a pretty pink. The two I’ll be loving the most this Autumn are Ballet Slippers (left) and Flawless (right). Ballet slippers is a very, very subtle, barely noticeable, pink. It’s not something I usually go for but recently I have loved the nude shades. This would be perfect for school or work where you’re not technically allowed nail polish but you hate naked nails. Flawless is just an amazing light pink that never fails. If in doubt, go for Flawless.
I bought this colour roughly two years ago and I always forget I have it. Warm & Toasty Turtleneck is such a cute purple. It’s kind of a dark pastel shade. Adding an extra coat of silver glitter on top of this looks amaaazing.
Naughty Nautical is one of my all-time favourites. Bradley bought this for me when we first met so I’m guessing that adds to why I love it so much. I like the unique colour and the added sparkles. It looks super cute when worn with an all-black outfit.
