seven

these are my seven go-to essie colors. i obviously have a thing for pinks and purples. i got a manicure the other day and my nails started chipping the next. talk about a bummer. good thing i have my own arsenal of polish to just DIY it.

what's your favorite nail color? are you into the bright colors or do you lean more towards the classic neutrals?

  1. I love OPI's "Sweet Heart." It's the perfect barely there pink. I do love having bright/obnoxious nails as well though, right now mine are mint matte!

  4. I love the Haute as Hello and French Affair. I usually go for brights, buys recently I've been all about neutrals. I love the barefoot and topless color by Essie but I haven't found it in stores yet. Happy Monday!

  5. I tend to learn towards the classics but I feel a certain kind of fierceness when I rock something as bold as Haute as Hello!

    Great color choices!!

  7. LOVE Essie! Nice choices! I love Haute as Hello, French Affair, and Big Spender too. 'Cute as a Button' is my all time favorite :)

  8. It definitely depends on my mood. Right now, I'm into loud/bright colors and shellac. I've recently gotten addicted. I love it because it does NOT chip & my favorite colors last longer. I'm rockin' a neon orange with glitter now, but generally I tend to pick coral/red/orange colors. Similar to Kate's new favorite color, Cajun Shrimp (which I love!) - she is also how I found your fabulous blog.

    Happy Monday,
    Brianne

  10. Love the post today...fun! Essie Peach Daiquiri and Raspberry are my faves. I like to paint all nails raspberry and my ring finger nail in peach daiquiri for a little pop of color.

  11. I change colors with the seasons but I really want some of the Master Plan and Haute as Hello. Total opposites, I know :)

  12. Love all these colors. I have a list of Essie colors that I want to buy so each time I am at Ulta I buy a new one ;)

  13. Big Spender and Haute As Hello are definitely my kind of colors. I also found the most perfect deep red for my skin tone from Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri polishes last summer.

  14. I love OPI Bubble Bath as a all around go-to color. I also love Cajun Shrimp in the spring/summer for a pop of color and my favorite for fall/winter is Lincoln Park After Dark.

  16. OPI's Cajun Shrimp is my ultimate favorite, but I just got a manicure in Essie's Meet Me at Sunset, which is a very orangish red. I love it, and I think it is perfect for the summer! Seche Vite fast dry top coat is a MUST for making polish last longer and not chip....it is a true investment and one of my beauty essentials!

  17. Pink is always my go to color, but I do love a spicy cajun shrimp if I'm wanting something a little more dramatic. Love your nail polish stash!

  18. "e-nuf is e-nuf" by Essie is the perfect mix of pink and coral (for me). Thanks for the inspiration, I need to try big spender.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've yet to buy any Essie polishes...mostly because I'm too indecisive and since Essie is more expensive than some others, it seems like a big decision. I'm crazy, right? :)

    I love love love the Haute as Hello color though. Maybe I'll finally bite the bullet and go for it.

  20. Essie is my favorite!! My go to colors include: "jamaica me crazy", "sure shot" (they are very similar) and I just bought "a crewed interest" - my latest obsession, the perfect peachy pink! I also have "bahama mama", great color for fall.

  21. I really like the Nice is Nice shade! Lately I'm loving pastel blues and greens, but my go-tos are always some form of coral. My favorites are Essie Boathouse (an older one) and Clambake!

  22. Depends on the season for my "posh mood". Right now I'm into bright punchy colors, fall and winter I like red, grey or a natural looking nail with OPI "Bubble Bath".
    Love your Essie picks, I've been thinking of getting "Haute as Hello" now I think I will. :)

  24. Neutrals right now! Which is quiet a change for me. But my toenails are always some funky color. I have a lot of trouble with Essy- I love their colors but the nail polish always chips a few days in. :(

  25. I hadn't painted my fingernails any color but clear since Jr. High....Until earlier this year. I had actually thrown out all of my polish except a coupleof deep reds and purples that I use on my toes.

    So, now I amfiguring out what I like all over again and building up my collection! I definitely lean towards deep colors for my toes but I am actually branching out and challenging myself to TRY SOMETHUNG NEW!

    So far I have picked up a light and sparkly pink color, Big Spender, Merino Cool, and something called Plum Sorbet. I am trying to get brave enough for some blue too. Anyone have a favorite blue polish that would look good with an olive skin tone?

  26. I am LOVING everything Zoya right now!

  27. I love Big Spender. It's amazing. I found a color by Revlon and Wet n Wild that I fell in love with-- a robin's egg color called I Need a Refresh-Mint and a fine teal glitter. It goes on thick and dark. And that foil gold color in my May Birchbox-- Love.

  28. I'm such an OPI girl but I just bought my first Essie nail polish it's called "Chinchilly" it's grey, I love it. Big Spender looks HOT! I love all pink nail polishes and turquoise ones too.

  32. Steady as She Rose from OPI. It's a soft greyish, pinkish, puce color. It's gorgeous and it just works with every outfit. It's neutral and colorful at the same time. L.O.V.E.

  33. Essie is my favorite! The colors applies nicely and stays on a lot longer than OPI and other brands. My go-to colors are Big Spender, E-nuf is E-nuf, and material girl! :)

  34. Those are so gorgeous! Especially that sparkly one!

  38. I bought the China Glaze Hunger Games collection and can't wait to rock it this fall but the color Riveting, which is a bright orange with gold shimmer screams summer and is on my toes now. I also love Essie's Turks and Caicos and Tart Deco. Mermaid's Tears from the OPI Pirates collection is also super fun!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh dear, I have an Essie problem. My current favorites are Cute as a Button and Mod Square, which is a near-neon pink. Also, Essie's Good to Go fast-dry topcoat is the best topcoat I've ever used. Dries solid in 30 minutes (even in terrible humidity) and doesn't chip.

  40. I love Essie polish! It's one of the only polishes that don't chip as easy as the others and it hasn't ever stained my nails. I love both bright pinks such as "watermelon" and reds and I also like neutrals like "sugar daddy". I also got brave and tried "turqoise and caicos".
    Thanks for sharing! And I just love to follow your blog. I would really like to start one soon :) Have a good day!

  41. Big Spender is one of my favorites. I also love Essie's sand tropez!

  42. I love Essie nail polish! I tend to stick with neutrals but for summer I decided to add some color and brighten up my toes...and even my fingers every once in a while. My go to Essie color right now is E Nuf is E Nuf which is a coral pinkish color. I've also discovered Butter brand nail polish which is really nice too. It tend not to chip as easily. Love your blog! Have a good day!
