Essie collections

On this page, I’m trying to keep track of all the Essie collections. It is still under construction, so I hope you can be a bit patient with me!

Regarding the numbers behind the shade names: I’ve talked about this on my blog here and there. Most colors have a US number and an EU number, which are different. I usually use these numbers to see if there are any upcoming collections or shades that I am missing. It’s a lot of work to track them down, so I did not report them everywhere yet.

It’s best to use ctrl+f (or whatever it is on your computer!) if you’re looking for a particular shade. To make navigation a bit easier, you can also jump to the years:
