essie Universe in Reverse 2019 Collection

Hi pretty polishers! I’m back today with this gorgeous duo set! This year essie has launched a second edition to the ever so popular Mercury in Retrograde Collection from last year. This duo is called the Universe in Reverse Collection and it is sold exclusively at Ulta.

These beauties are pink, shimmery, and stunning! Let’s take a look at each one.


This is a bright hot pink filled with purple shimmer. Formula is great, it’s basically opaque in 2 coats. Just a tiny bit of visible nail line, but it’s not bad. This color just screams SUMMER!

These also look amazing in the shade because of the shimmer.


This is a bright purple filled with magenta shimmer. Formula is the same as the previous polish. Excellent after 2 coats! Love this one.

Here’s a shade shot. Love the way these look under shade. They almost glow!

These two are still available and in stock at the time this blog post went live at here. They retail for $9 each. You can use the monthly Ulta coupons to get $3 off your order and free shipping when they have promotions. I purchased these myself. essie is 3 FREE (contains no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde).

I topped them off using Seche Vite which I purchased on Amazon here.
