Whether it's a birthday or a big job interview, nothing makes a person feel more put-together quite like a pretty manicure. Having well-done, wow-worthy nails takes confidence to a whole new level, and makes celebrating all the more fun. That's exactly the idea behind Essie's #essielove Moments Collection which has shades perfect for gifting during life's most special moments — but with colors this good, you'll want to grab them for yourself, too.
When you think of your go-to manicure color, there's a fair chance it's one of Essie's cheekily-named, high-quality shades. And now, the popular polish brand is bringing a new collection of six sweet colors to add to your stash, all with a celebratory theme that'll have you feeling full of cheer each time you reach for the colors. Essie's new #essielove Moments Collection is officially available on the brand's site and at beauty retailers (like Target) to make manicures so much more fun for everyone.
Some of the collection's pretty new shades, $9 each, are new takes on classics — which means they'll be easy to slip into your usual color rotation. Consider Nailed It! for one, which riffs on a typical red lacquer by transforming it into a lovely, rich burgundy. It's just as statement-making and full of confidence as your usual crimson, but with a depth that makes it even more appealing. Wear it when you've got a big presentation you want to nail — and afterwards to celebrate your win.
Similarly, the shades Sheer Luck and The Best-est have everyday appeal. The sheer pink hue and cool gray color impart subtle elegance, and look good with any ensemble, so you simply can't go wrong with either. Gift them to a friend who favors simple manicures and she'll be wearing the shades for years to come.
Speaking of gifting — the other three shades included in Essie's new collection are all spirited enough to sport (and share) for more celebratory events.
The iridescent, shimmering Birthday Girl pink polish is perfectly suited to gift as party favors at a birthday dinner, while Mani Thanks' champagne gold shade makes a great thank you gift for bridesmaids joining you on your big day. And, Congrats' rainbow confetti glitter is the chicest way to rock a colorful mani; try it on one nail as an accent, or go all out and paint all ten with the pretty polish.
