Have your goal-setting sessions for this shiny new year included a whole lot of travel plans? Jetting off to somewhere you've never seen is a great way to grow by expanding your horizons (literally and figuratively) and getting a fresh perspective on life. And naturally, you want to do so in style — which means you'll need a gorgeous getaway manicure to get your vacay looks ready for takeoff. And that's where essie's new Flying Solo nail polish collection comes in with a fresh palette of adventure-ready hues. Happy travels ahead.
On the heels of essie's first new formula launch in years, the Expressie quick-drying line, the beloved nail brand is starting off 2020 on a high note with a solo travel-inspired collection. But even if the travel you're looking forward to is with a group of girlfriends or your partner, these fresh shades are still wanderlust worthy.
The Flying Solo nail collection, $9 each and up for grabs at beauty retailers like Ulta and Target and on essie's website, took inspiration from a multicolored sunset you might spot from your window seat as you jet off someplace exciting. And true to essie's playful vibe, the selection of nine bright shades have cheeky names that'll inspire you to book a trip STAT.
The collection's namesake shade, Flying Solo, is a creamy mid-tone pink that mimics the cotton candy clouds in a sunset sky, and is joined by more rosy-tinted shades like cool-hued pastel pink Free To Roam and iridescent One Way For One which combines a blue-pink with warm golden shimmer. Warm shimmery peach Reach New Heights and creamy coral Check In To Check Out complete the color palette of a dreamy scene.
Warm golden yellow Check Your Baggage will tempt you with the promise of sunshine somewhere tropical, while the periwinkle-violet shimmer polish You Do Blue would be fitting for a wintry escape (or a relaxing staycation somewhere close to home). Two deeper shades round out the collection — pearlescent plum Without Reservations encourages a spontaneous getaway while keeping your manicure classic, and In Plane View presents a deep, creamy teal of a twilight sky.
