Essie Core Colors Swatches and Review Part 1

Recently, as part of the Preen.me VIP program, I tried out some core collection colors from Essie. These included many famous shades that I have been seeing and admiring for years! I have the first five creme shades to share with you today.

Essie Core Colors

Essie 90 Really Red is a medium-toned bright red creme. It covers nicely in two thin coats and maintains a little jelly-like quality. It has a quick dry time and is shiny. This one will stain dry skin so you do want to be careful since it is pigmented.

Essie 609 Bahama Mama is a plum-tinged dark blood red creme. It has a great formula and covers in one or two thin coats, with a quick dry time and shiny finish. This one also will stain dry skin, but not nails. This is the quintessential classic '90s shade and I love it!

Essie 686 Cute As a Button is a coral pink creme. I wore it in three thin coats and it had a medium dry time. This may require more coats for those with more pigmented nail beds as it is quite bright.

Essie 744 Topless & Barefoot is a peach-toned beige creme. This is another famous, classic shade from the brand - one of their most popular. It covers in two or three thin coats with a medium dry time.

I will be back soon with five more classic core shades from Essie. Even though I love my flashy effect finishes, there is nothing like a great creme, and Essie has them in spades! Do you have a favorite among these?
