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.

Trophy Wife
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Pink

I love to use this shade when I want a different/fun look for my nails. It is a bold teal color with metallic finish. What I love most about this shade is that even though it has that metallic finish, you don’t get any streaks during the application and with two coats you get full coverage.

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!
