Essie Nail Polish Doesn’t Look Like This Anymore

by Stephanie Montes

You know the old saying: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Sure, change is good, but Essie’s nail polish bottles just got a major makeover and we have some thoughts. While we’re willing to keep an open mind, we already feel slight anxiety about mixing in this new shape with our uniform collection of signature square bottles. To say that Essie’s OG silhouette was given an updated twist is as literal as it can get. The swirl design is meant to set apart the brand’s new gel line (which sets without a base coat or a UV lamp). And while the formula sounds amazing, we would have suggested simply slapping on a new label. In any case, we’re willing to try anything once, but we just had to get that off our chest.

What do you think of the new bottle shape? Let us know in the comment section below.
