Top 5 Essie Nail Shades

essie-nail-polish-favourites-best-top-five-nails-colourEssie are without a doubt up there as one of my top nail polish brands, or even probably the best. They offer such an incredible shade range with a reliable long-lasting formula yet at an affordable cost. I have collected quite a few nail polishes from the brand now and thought I would round up my top five favourite shades. If you are a newbie to Essie then these recommendations also build a perfect little Essie starter kit!

Bahama Mama

If you seen my ‘Perfect nail wardrobe’ post then you will know that a berry shade is a must in any nail collection. This shade is essentially my Autumn go-to, it  is a little unique from a standard red berry typical fall shade in that it has a rich plum-y tone to it and lies more in the purple side of things rather than red. If you like more darker intense shades then this is one to go for!

Fifth Avenue

Everyone needs a good staple bold red in their nail collection. It is one of those fail-safe options and fifth avenue is the perfect option. The shade is your typical fire-engine bright red that looks super sophisticated all year round.

Cocktail Bling

If I had to choose my favourite nail shade, I would always say a blue-y greige shade and Cocktail Bling is just one of those. A blue-y grey, this shade is perfect for Winter time and looks really sleek despite having a bit of colour to it.

Sand Tropez

Another must have is a good nude shade. The sandy beige-y tones of this shade make is a great staple neutral to have so it is great for any occasion!

Maximillian Strasse-Her

Another one of my all-time favourites, similar to Cocktail Bling however this shade offers a mix of green, blue and grey-ish tones. Again it offers that bit of colour without being too out there so makes a nice alternative to a boring neutral!

  1. Great list! Oh man… Essie is my favourite polish brand. If I had to choose 5, they would be:
    • Mademoiselle
    • Jelly Apple
    • Flawless
    • Marshmallow
    • Jazz
    Granted, I do have both Bahama Mama and Maximillian Strasse-Her in my untrieds pile! So who knows, maybe they will make my top 5 list once I wear them! 😉
