My Favorite Essies

Essie Greenport

I think it is interesting that a company that produces 90% pinks and reds can come up with such awesome greens and blues, don't you?

I received this baby in a swap. If you have trouble tracking down this or any of the North Folk collection, L'Oreal (who know owns Essie) brought out some dead on dupes this summer. I did not purchase any since I managed to track down all three Essies seperately.

Splash of Grenadine, Turquoise and Caicos, Playa del Platinum, Lapis of Luxury

I love this mani. I wish I had worn it longer. I was only swatching but don't they look awesome together?

Essie Turquoise and Caicos
Brighter and less dusty than Greenport. Both are what I think of as squishy cremes. Meaning that they apply like jellies, but by the 3rd coat are cremes. My favorite finish!

I need to take some pics of the rest of my non pink and red Essie Collection!

What are your favorite Essies? I personally love their brush as it works well with my small nails. I am one of the few people in the world that do not like the OPI Pro Wide Brush! What about you? Anyone else prefer the Essie brush?
