I'm in love with Essie now. I can't believe I used to hate Essie! Sure, they have fifty bajillion boring pale pinks and beiges, but this formula is incredible. It goes on so smoothly and dries so fast. I must have more.


  1. Essies are cool and your pics fabulous! Viva la vespa.. mii laiki. Well, I like nudes as well, bright pinks.. thanks for good pics, I shouldn't buy any polish this year, but..

  2. Glad you like my pics :)

    I'm just surprised by how much I used to hate Essie. I love Essie now. Weird.

  3. Hi! I adore essie nail polish and i just got my nails done in st.lucia lilac... so adorable!

    is there anyway that you can tell me what collection its from?


  4. Hi Katie, I can't find any information on which collection it's from... I'm guessing it came out with St. Barth Blue et cetera, but I'm pretty sure it's part of the regular line.

  5. I just bought Enuff is Enuff because it was $4 at TJ Maxx

  6. i really like Laced-Up Bootie but i cant seem to find it online. was wondering if you can find if there are any dupes? maybe you can do a comparison of all the purple-pinks?

    thanks scrangie! :)

  7. Once again, your meticulous swatches have helped me to make a better decision than I would have by myself.

    Thank you!

  8. I have had bad experiences with essie formulations. Especially the last Spring collection cost me nerves and money. There are some really beautiful colours in your stash, but I don't trust essie that much anymore. :(

  9. Laced-Up Bootie looks awesome! ant dupes you can recommend?

  10. Just wanted to thank you for the swatches. Very helpful :)

  11. Hi there, so You still love and collect essies or would you maybe want to part with a few? Kind regards, Mel
