Essie Summer 2020 (Bustling Bazaar + Feelin’ Poppy +Sunny Business+ Sunset soiree)

Not that long ago I made a list of all Essie’s upcoming spring collections over here. However, the first essie summer 2020 collections are being released already. Time flies! As a result, I have spotted four new collections so far, Bustling Bazaar, Feelin’ Poppy, Sunny Business and Sunset soiree. More might come, but this is the overview so far.

Bustling Bazaar (Summer 2020)

Bustling Bazaar is the true summer collection, it consists of 6 shades inspired by Morocco. I am really enthousiastic when I see them all together, and it definitely gives me holiday vibes. The cremes are purple (worth the tassle), turqoise (Bustling Bazaar), peach (Souq up the sun), red (Spice it up) and a caramel color (Kaf-tan) (affiliate links to Amazon). There is a golden metallic called Mosaic on down (affiliate link, will direct you to Amazon). I have also spotted this collection in stores right now, and it is really pretty. Check for swatches the instagram post below. For more information and swatches of the Bustling Bazaar collection, check out this post.

Feelin’ Poppy (Midsummer 2020 collection)

Feelin’ Poppy is the midsummer 2020 collection which is usually only released in Scandinavia. Essie decided to release it in more countries this year, in the US this collection is available at Walgreens. The midsummer collections are usually inspired by nature and this one is no different. For swatches of all Feelin’ poppy polishes check out the Instagram post below. I just really love the theme of this collection and the polishes fit perfectly. If you are looking for dupes, check out the following post from Livwithbiv. I personally think Excuse me, sur, Go Ginza and Blue-la-la are some nice dupes for Everything’s rosy, Ruffle your petals and Sway in Crochet.

Sunny Business

So I was super excited to find out that there was going to be a third collection called Sunny Business. This collection is already available in Germany and is popping up in more places in the US.

This collection consists of 6 shades, Sunny Business (pastel yellow with shimmer), Throw in the towel (pink), suits you swell (purple), Seas the day (mint green with shimmer), Beachy keen (peach) and you’re a catch (nude).

I am especially excited about Sunny Business and Seas the day because they seem to be very unique.

EDIT JUNE 2020: In north-America you can find the Sunny business collection in the same display as the Let it ripple collection. This is another new Essie collection with a lot of awesome shimmer polishes with a surf theme find out more over here. The Essie collection also consists of 9 shades!! Talk to the sand is a nude shade a bit lighter than you’re a catch. Any-fin goes is a bright orange, U’V got me faded is close to suits you swell (purple) but is lighter. Check here for more information about the shades. For a swatch video with all the shades, check out this video on Youtube. The Sunny Business collection is also available on Amazon now over here (affiliate link). I have swatches Suits you swell myself over here.

Swatch of suits you swell compared to other Essie Purples Island hopping and Ciao Effect.

Sunset Soiree (Gel couture)

So this new Gel couture collection was announced on Essie’s instagram. And it is another one I am really excited about. As expected, it consists of 6 polishes in Sunset colors. Obviously I am really excited about Atelier at the bay, which is another Essie yellow. I haven’t seen Sunset soiree anywhere yet, but Beyondpolish has them listed on their website as “coming soon” over here (I am not affiliated with Beyond polish).

June 2020: Sunset Soiree is now available on Amazon here (affiliate link).

It probably will depend on your region when you can expect these collections. If you’re still into Spring collections, you can check them out over here.

  1. Thanks for this overview. The Sunny Business collection is completely available at dm stores (saw it yesterday). I am excited about this collection and picked up 3 of them
    Have a nice day and greetings from Cologne.

    • Wow that is cool! Maybe I might be able to go on a trip to Germany once the Corona thing is over. It always takes so long before a collection reaches the Netherlands.
