Flirt
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Normal-to-Oily, Undertone: Yellow

Flirt is a deep and hot coral color that’s perfect for summer. Like most Essie polishes, Flirt applies thinly, but it is buildable to an opaque color I get about 1 week of wear from it with some wear at the tips.

Shop Till I Drop
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Normal-to-Oily, Undertone: Yellow

Shop Till I Drop is a sheer summer peach (more peach than coral) that can be used for French manicure. It goes on very sheer and thin, which can be a challenge for self-applicatiion to avoid pooling or streaking.

Ballet Slippers
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Pink

I really like to use this color when I want to wear something subtle on my nails. It gives some sheer nude color and a glossy finish. You can get more opacity if you use 3 to 4 coats, but the application is a bit tricky because you can get some streaks if you are not careful. Still I think is a beautiful color and I recommend it to anyone who needs a classic nude shade with good value.

Mint Candy Apple
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Pink

Even though I love the color once applied, I find it quite difficult to use. The formula is a bit too thick and you have to be careful because if you use too much product it can take forever to dry.

The color is a lovely shiny mint and looks perfect for spring/summer. It lasts around five days on me with a topcoat. I think is a good product for the cost, but still I think the formula could be improved.

Dive Bar
Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

This shade looks better in the bottle than it does on the nails, the shade just doesn’t translate well. It’s a beautiful dark (almost vampy) teal with purple duochrome tone. It’s really pretty but the purple is hardly there on finger tips :-( It just ends up looking like a dark teal or black if you just glance at it.

Trophy Wife
Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

Another one of my favorite polishes, this is consistent with the Essie formula and the shade is a bright metallic teal, not quite blue but not quite green. Eye catching and a tad punk/grungy :-) It also kind of reminds me of an 80′s prom dress.

She’s Picture Perfect
Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

She’s Picture Perfect is a great spring/Easter time polish. Its not just another boring periwinkle, it’s a baby violet/blue base with a hint of brighter purple/magenta shimmer. Very pretty.

Topless & Barefoot
Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

This is my HG nude. Remember when mannequin nails were a big hit? Well this is it! This shade has a tiny hint of a peachy pink tone to make it not look like plain white-out on nails. It can chip and dull if you don’t put a top coat but other than that I love it!

Jamaica Me Crazy
Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

Another one of my favorites. Same great easy to use formula. This shade is a dark raspberry metallic magenta. Another great eye catching polish for the summer, this shade looks great with a tan but my nc25 hands can pull it off!

Braziliant
Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

This shade is my go-to pedicure shade, especially in the summer. It’s such a bright metallicy orange with cool toned shimmer, I love it. It’s like happiness in a bottle and perfect for tropical vacations. Definitely an eye-catcher.

Jazz
Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

The formula is great, just like every other Essie polish. It’s a creme consistency but it just looks off and muddy on my nc25 complexion. Seriously, it looks like I dipped the tips of my fingers in some clay based mud and had them dry, not a good look but I can see it looking great on darker skin tones!

A Crewed Interest
Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

A Crewed Interest is the prettiest pastel peachy color. It looks great as a base under Essie’s Luxeffects Pure Pearlification and it is a must have for spring. This is definitely one of my favorites, it’s worth every single cent and I would buy multiples of it!
