Out of all of the nail polish brands Essie is my favorite. I have always loved the color choices, and I think it goes on the easiest. I had no idea that Essie, was named after the owner herself Essie Weingarten.
Essie Weingarten was featured in this months Better Homes and Gardens and I am now even more fascinated with herself and the company.
In the article Essie discusses how she was bored with the usual red and pink nail polish colors in the 1980's and as a buyer at Henri Bendel ( jealous!!) she was inspired to create great new nail colors from all of the fabrics and ribbons she worked with.
She also states that one of her favorite nail colors is Ballet Slippers, which as I've stated before happens to be my favorite as well.
Essie states the best colors for ....
Gardeners: Lady Like
Cooks: Mademoiselle, Sugar Daddy, Ballet Slippers, or Allure
Job Interview: French Manicure
Impressing Someone: Clam bake
Meeting the In-Laws: Rock Candy
Essie has created a color for Better Homes and Gardens named "BHG Beautiful" which looks like prefect fall color, I was unable to find a picture, but its a pretty maroon color and you can apply on their website to win a bottle.
What is your go to Essie color?
