My favourite is Shades On
Thanks for participating in the giveaway. Good luck in the draw, and stop by again soon!
My favorite is silky sari pink, cute name and color 🙂
Oh, I know the one you mean. It’s called Delhi Dance (from the Resort 2016 Collection), but Essie describes it as a silky sari pink. 🙂 I agree – cute!
Thanks for participating in the giveaway, and good luck! 🙂
silky sari pink
One of my favorite Essie polishes is Flowerista from the Essie Spring 2015 collection. I have my eye on Off Tropic from this collection.
My Fav essie (that you’ve featured and I already have) is Coat Couture from the Cashmere Mattes Collection. But, Delhi Dance is on it’s way to me, and it could end up being my new essie fav.
Thank you for the opportunity to win this new essie collection!
Pool Side Service is beautiful!
I like the Pool Side Service shade 🙂
love the bikini so tenny
Bikini so teeny! It’s my favorite Essie shade ever
My favourite (or one of my favourite…) Essie’s that you’ve reviewed is Leggy Legend from Fall 2015! Super gorgeous and very Fall appropriate 🙂 Thanks for having this giveaway!
Hmm, my favourite lately has been the entire Retro Revival collection. 🙂 Honestly, reminded me of polishes I already own that I might have neglected!
My favourite is the blog post http://www.swatchandlearn.com/nail-art-tutorial-ink-spill-nails/ that has the four Essie polishes. It has my favourite Essie shade in it, Essie Bell Bottom Blues.
I really like the Spicy marigold Apricot, very original color!
Loved the swatch you did for Apres-Chic! Great blog posts always!:)
My favourite Essie polish featured on your blog is Shine of the Times. This polish introduced me to flaky polishes and I love their effect. It’s mesmerizing looking at it from different angles.
My favourite is from the Essie Spring Collection 2016 and it is Lounge Lover. This is such a gorgeous peachy pink colour and will be my go to polish colour spring thru summer.
I love the Essie shade Shall We Chalet. What a beautiful red. Perfect for christmas and the summer!
Bikini so Teeny!!!
My favorite shade is Mint Candy Apple!
I love Pool Side Service!
In this collection, Off Tropic and Pool side service are calling to me 🙂 I forget the full name but the resort collection that had Cocktails and coconuts (something Beyond Sunset) in it is still my all time favourite set!
Love Essie Shall we Chalet. Gorgeous shade. Thanks for the chance!
I really like Essie’s Starry Starry Night but Lounge Lover is awesome too.
I really love the love of ‘Shades on’!
It’s soooo hard for me to choose a favourite shade but I think I’ll go with Bikini So Teeny 🙂
Bikini so tiny is my favourite
I loved your Bikini So Teeny post…I actually pulled it out and painted my nails with it that day 🙂 Love your posts…great swatches and witty writing!
I love Bikini so Teeny!
I love the Essie Shall we Chalet.
I’m loving meditative mint lime from the Resort collection!
i absolutely love Shades On!
The essie nail polish that is my favorite from 2016 collection is the Refreshing cerulean blue. It’s a lovely color that would match a lot of my clothing, and look great for my skin tone.
my favorite is Pool Side Service
I like shades on
I love the color silky sari pink
Honestly right about now I would have to say it’s Nama-stay!

I like the Shades On
Bikini so teeny!
i love the Lounge Lover colour!
Totally in love with the Essie’s Starry Starry Night !
Thank you for the chance!
My favourite colour you’ve swatched so far is definitely Essie Short Shorts. I love that vibrant hot pink colour! You swatched it back in ’12, so it would be a little tricky getting it. Ebay!!
If I had to pick one favourite Essie polish from the many favourites I have…it would have to be ‘Fall in Line’ from the Dress to Kilt collection! We are opposite as I am not a fan of greens, but there’s something about this polish that I cannot stop staring at it when I have it on ! It’s a beautiful dusty camo-ish green with a great formula ! What more can you ask for :)!
I love silky sari pink:)
Bikini so Teeny is lovely!
ohh,I love the Essie Nama-stay the Night..such a pretty blue color!!
Essie Nama-stay the Night is my favourite
Lounge Lover is my favourite!
i like “Shades On”, the lavender one — reminds me of Easter eggs 😀
I love these two colours best: Essie Nama-stay the Night and Essie Shall We Chalet
Essie Shall We Chalet!
So many great ones to choose from but I would say the silky sari pink.
Lounge Lover looks awesome!
I love the Delhi pink from the Essie resort collection, beautiful.
