essie Summer 2018 Collection | Swatches + Review

Hi loves! Summer is coming to a close (literally tomorrow), but before it’s over I wanted to share this lovely Summer Collection with you all. Today we are taking a look at the essie Summer 2018 Collection.


This Summer Collection is inspired by sunny days, good vibes, and making harmony! Honestly, these don’t look like your typical Summer-y polishes, but in a way that’s good because these can be used for other seasons like Spring or Fall. Let’s take a look at each one.



This is a pearlized white shimmer. It is SUPER like super super super brushstrokey…. mehhh I’m not liking that. It’s opaque in 2 coats but those brush strokes do not disappear. So the cool thing about this polish though is the glow. It has an iridescent green/purple shift that’s really pretty.

Eeek! You cannot escape the brush strokes 🙁


This is a muted rose pink creme. Ok this one is the TOTAL opposite. Buttery, smooth, delicious!!! It applies like a dream and is opaque in almost 1 coat. Super pigmented and yummy. I did 2 coats here. This color is actually perfect for Spring too.


Obviously, this is a blue based bright fuchsia pink creme. It’s all in the name LOL! Such amazing pigment. I’m in love. This is 2 amazing coats. This color isn’t entirely unique but it’s so gorgeous!


This is a beautiful minty blue creme. Colors like these make me MELT! I love the tone of this polish. The formula was a bit streaky but it evens out in 3 coats.


This is a dusty eggplant purple. YUM! Guys this polish was opaque in ONE COAT!!! Ahhh my fave type of polishes. This one is definitely a winner in my book. Buttery, smooth, and incredible.


This is a toffee nude filled with gold shimmer. Formula is great! It’s opaque in 2 easy coats. The color, however, is not my fave. I feel like it doesn’t compliment my skin tone.

The gold shimmer is very noticeable though, which is awesome!


Essie Cosmetics is owned by L’Oréal. The brand has over 250 shades in the permanent collection, plus releases four seasonal color collections and two specialty collections every year. Essie is 3 FREE and sold in drug stores, salons, and beauty supply stores world wide.

You can purchase these at local retailers like CVS, Walgreens, Sally Beauty or on Amazon here by clicking on each name: All Daisy Long, Young, Wild, & Me, The Fuchsia is Bright, Empower-Mint, Making Harmony, and Sunny Daze. My favorites from the bunch were Young, Wild & Me and Making Harmony.

Have you tried any of these? The good part about me posting these at the end of Summer is that most of these are already on sale! Which one was your favorite?
