Essie Encrusted Treasures Collection 2013

Nail art may be a thing of the past (well, almost) but taking its place is polish finishes that are anything but ordinary. Essie may be the last to the finish line in coming out with their own uniquely finished polish, but they’ve definitely taken the category to the next level with their Encrusted Treasures […]

Essie Winter 2013 Collection

This year, you can forget about wearing those blacks, deep purples, and deep blues. The winter collections do have strong colours, but they’re a step away from the deep dark shades that we’ve seen so much of in previous years. Essie’s Winter 2013 collection is a mix of classic bordeaux shades, blues, and purples. The […]

Essie 2013 Fall Colour Collection

This, my friends, is a collection I love because there are so many rich colours in it.  Three creams, two shimmers, and a holograhic oil slick shade that is just perfect.

Essie Big Pony Collection

I once read a quote by Essie Weingarten (actually, this was last year) that said she would never create a yellow nail polish because she didn’t like it.  Thus, Essie the brand never jumped on the yellow nail polish trend last summer. That however has changed – yellow is one of the four new shades […]
