Polish Inventory: Essie


Continuing on with the quest to inventory my polish stash (click here for previous posts) is a brand that is irresistible to many, and beloved by... well pretty much all: Essie!

I haven't been collecting Essie as long as some of the other brands in my collection, but the fact that I always seem to bring them home in pairs- seriously, I find it impossible to only buy one Essie at a time- my stash has grown rather quickly. 

One thing about Essie that I quite like, are their minis sets. When collections are released you can pick up cubes four to six minis. I've never actually finished a bottle of coloured polish, so being able to pick up a whole collection (or the bulk of it, they don't always include every shade in the cubes) at a lower price than full size bottles is a great option. Their mini's don't scrimp in quality either, the brushes are full sized, and apply just as well as their full size counterparts, annnd, the bottles are labeled in the same manner as well (a complaint many have with other brands' mini bottles is usually the lack of labeling).

Anyhow, onto the polish!

Essie Playa del Platinum, Turquoise & Caicos, Lapis of Luxury, and Splash of Grenadine (minis)

Essie Sugar Daddy, Kisses and Bises, Shine of the Times, and Penny Talk

Essie Topless & Barefoot, Sand Tropez, Eternal Optimist, and Fondola Gondola

Essie Coat Azure, Aruba Blue, Bahama Mama, and Wicked

Essie Nice is Nice, Tart Deco, and Meet me at Sunset

And that's that! Do you have a favourite Essie polish?
