I’ve loved painting my nails ever since I was a young girl, and I still love it. Over the years I’ve tried out many different kinds of brands when it comes to nail polishes, but I seem to always get back to the Essie ones. Essie has a great selection of colors and I really like their formula. You typically only need one or two coats when using Essie nail polishes and it’s really easy to apply. I have a few favorite Essie nail polishes that you will see me wearing a lot, and I always get questions about what I’m wearing on my nails. So in this post I’m going to be sharing my top three favorite Essie nail polishes.

Eternal Optimist

This is my ultimate favorite nail polish color and I wear this color all year round. It’s the perfect neutral pink shade and I always get loads of compliments when I wear it. If you want to get one color of the Essie nail polishes, I would definitely recommend getting this one!

Bahama Mama

This is the perfect dark vampy color for the fall and winter time. It’s a dark berry color which is a staple for my nail polish collection. It’s one of those colors you can’t go wrong with! I wear this color so much during the colder months and I can’t wait to be wearing it again the upcoming fall.;

Sand Tropez

I love wearing this color when I feel like something lighter and very neutral. As the name already says, it’s a sandy color. So this nail polish goes more into the nude range. And again, you can’t go wrong with a nude. It’s perfect when you want to wear something that’s a bit more toned down, but still have some color on your nails.

“a soft sandy beige”

So there you go! These are my top three favorite Essie nail polishes I would definitely recommend getting if you’re looking for some new colors. I feel like these are all super wearable colors that you can wear all throughout the year. They are all quite basic and neutral colors that I feel like every girl or woman should have in their collection!

What is your favorite nail polish color?
