The Best Essie Colours According to Byrdie Editors Who've Worn Them for Years

Erin Jahns

As beauty editors, we try our best to remain egalitarian when it comes to our product repertoire—doling out our love and admiration equally to those special colours, shades, and formulas that make our hearts skip a beat. However, there are certain situations when we want to exclusively date a product. And to be honest, it happens most often with nail polish—especially the best Essie colours we've loved and used since what feels like forever.

Not only does the beloved nail polish brand master the basics (it boasts some of the most iconic shades of light pink, red, and moody hues known to beauty lovers), but it continues to dish up mesmerising new shades as well. Just when we thought we had an inarguable favourite, Essie goes ahead and debuts a brand-new collection that makes us second-guess everything. Therefore, we thought we'd write an ode to Essie featuring, you guessed it, the best colours Byrdie HQ plays favourites for. Keep reading for 12 of the best Essie colours we love (and pray the brand will never discontinue).
