Retro-Revival for the Ages

If you haven't heard yet, I'm not sure where you've been. Essie re-released 6 of their most famous colors ever, ranging from the very first Essie line in the 1980's all the way up to today. With today's mail I finally got the last one and I'm happy to be able to talk you through each and every one of them.

I have been able to only a few of these colors, but so far, I'm in love. These are really timeless colors. So far I've tried Sequin Sash and Cabana Boy. Both are just lovely and the formula's are what we've come to know and love from Essie. But let's go through the rest of them, shall we?

In order as they appear: Sequin Sash, Bikini With a Martini, Starry Starry Night, Birthday Suit, Life of the Party, and Cabana Boy.

Sequin Sash is a very neutral/not neutral color that goes great with basically anything. In fact, I wore this for New Years Eve! Granted, my New Years Eve ended at 9:21pm and my date was a box of Kleenex, but my nails we on fleek.

Bikini With a Martini is a pearlescent bubblegum pink. The essence, if you will, has a gold tinge to it, and I think it makes the color richer and more effective in a way.

Starry Starry Night is the end all/be all of nail polish colors. This color become such a cult classic it used to sell for over $200 on eBay and was the first one to sell out when they released the new colors. I haven't tried this yet, but it's got silver and blue glitter and a cerulean blue base.

Birthday Suit is a hyper nude perfect for the upcoming wedding season. It's not exactly white, but it's not exactly nude. It's like a nice warm, peachy white nude. Glorious.

Life of the Party is like that saucy red dress you hold for only specific occasions. It's a very lovely deep red and it oddly seems like the opalescence has a bit of a grey sheen. I really like it and can't wait to try it.

Finally, Cabana Boy is seriously just the best thing in the world. It's a beautiful dove grey that you can wear now, tomorrow, the next day, next season, next year....It just doesn't matter. I love this color.

If you're going to get any of the colors, I'd say get Sequin Sash, Cabana Boy, and Starry Starry Night. With these three, you will have exactly what you need for all year around.
