When it comes to nail polish that can be used as-is or as part of nail designs, Essie has six gorgeous “one-size fits all” shades that work just as well for everyday looks as they do for your special events.
These totally wearable colours cut across the spectrum to represent the best of the best go-to shades you can’t be seen without.
If you are not into radical, blinding colours be in your hair, in your eye makeup or on your nails, then neutral pastel colours like Essie Sand Tropez are definitely worth adding to your makeup kit collection. Far from being a dull and flat neutral, this delicate sandy beige has a glossy shine that takes the crown in the neutral pastel picks. It is as feminine as it is gentle and enhances just about any manicure.
Mauve offers the type of shades that comfortably fit in the boardroom as much as they do in the club. If you’re after a nail colour that seamlessly adjusts to whatever setting you happen to be in, Essie Island Hopping, an intense plum mauve shade, is a timeless must-have.
Off-white is a top go-to option for everyday wear as well as nail art. The off-white shades offer great wedding day inspiration, yet also rock when styled with jeans and a comfy top. Unlike your typical white nails that can come off a bit too stark and bright, Essie Marshmallow has a soft, grey hue that complements every skin tone. It can also play a leading role in facilitating trendy nail art ideas.
The evolution of pink
For decades, pink has come off as a feminine colour that is associated with women from an early age. While pink hair might be a little ‘out there’ for work, finding the perfect pink polish that can switch between boss-lady suits and Friday party vibes, is more straightforward than it seems. Fans across the world have labelled Essie Mademoiselle as a classic grown-up, yet feminine pink that is a manicure and pedicure favourite.
Grey is a colour that continually reappears in conventional and unconventional colour and makeup trends. A dark colour like Essie Chinchilly represents the modernity of the present in a manner that is sleek and comparable with casual and formal outfits. It is a great point of departure for winter nail inspiration ideas but works just as well all year round.
Lady in red
Red is so in right now. Just as every wardrobe needs the perfect red dress, red stiletto shoes, and casual red clutch bag; owning the perfect red nail polish is a must. We absolutely love Essie Bordeaux as it is the epitome of all things red hot, without being too in your face.
At the end of the day, your nail polish needs to be classic and versatile enough to add value to your collection, while sparking individual style and expression. Opt for a shade that suits your unique style and personality – and remember everything looks better when it’s worn with a smile.
