ABC Challenge- E is for Essie Pretty Edgy

Hi everyone! Today I'm back with all the lovely ladies participating in the ABC Challenge. Quick post today because my laptop is about to die! As you know, for this challenge we are to show a nail polish shade, brand, or nail art technique that starts with the letter of the week. This week we are on letter E so of course, I had to choose an Essie polish. Essie is one of my favorite polish brands even though I know a lot of people don't really love them. While Essie is known for their pinks and soft shades, they make a mean green polish! Seriously though this and Mojito Madness from last summer's collection are two of my favorite greens in my collection.





The first picture is most true to the color in real life....greens can be hard to capture in photos sometimes. The formula on this was great! Self leveling and flowed onto the nail really easily. The first coat was kind of sheer but the second provided perfect opacity. I know that this is from a collection from 2010 (I think) but I still see this frequently at random beauty supply places and such. 

What do you guys think of Essie greens? I'm starting to become obsessed.

  6. Pretty shade of green. I think it's funny how many of us used green polishes...maybe it's a conspiracy.

  7. This is a popular color this week! LOL. Maybe a bunch of us are craving spring or something. Reminds me of Revlon Posh, which I have. Lovely mani!

  8. Wow...green was the color this week! This is a really pretty color. I have to admit, I don't own 1 Essie. The displays I see always have pale, pastel shades. If they did more like these, I might look a little closer.
