Essie something I said?
We’ve got two new things from one of our favorite nail brands! Following the successful launch of their Gel Couture Collection last year, Essie is bringing out six new shades to add to the at-home gel manicure collection. Inspired by the elegance of ballet, the collection will feature six new pastel shades that promise long-lasting staying power and amazing color pay-off for just $12 a bottle.
Accompanying the launch of the new shades, Essie is also bringing out the Treat & Love Color collection ($10) that promises to improve your overall nail health in just one week! Infused with collagen, camellia leaf extracts and brightening pigments, the three shades work to strengthen your nails while still providing you a cute splash of color. With shades like Laven-Dearly (lavender shade), Sheers to You (baby pink shade), and Treat Me Bright (pearlescent white), it’s easy to forget that these are actually good for your nails. Added bonus: they don’t need a base or top coat!
