My Favorite Essies


This is a post from one of my first month's of blogging.  Since so many of you were not around then, I wanted to share it with you today!

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.

Essie Resort Collection Skittles
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?
