Essie Wild Nudes Collection

Hey there nail & beauty enthusiasts!
Essie recently released a new 9 shade collection of incredible nude nail polishes called “Wild Nudes“.  Colors ranging from light peach pink, apricot tone, light tan, clean light gray, shadowy blue, mossy green, light cinnamon brown, sienna brown & dark purple.  There’s definitely a shade for everyone in this fabulous collection.  Each nail polish retails for $9/bottle and for a limited time they are available now on and fine salons and beauty destinations nationwide.

Here’s a closer look at the colors from the collection and my favorites.



Absolutely obsessed with this shade.  It applies smooth and evenly and opaque!  A MUST HAVE!!!!  Plus is pairs gorgeously with Mooning.  See below



  • Mooning: a light shadowy blue with an undertone of black

Another MUST HAVE!  I’m absolutely obsessed with essie Mooning!  I’ll let you be the judge.  A perfect mani or pedi color!


  • Skinny Dip: a light peach pink with a hint of black.

My next obsession is Skinny Dip!  If you love wearing pale shades of pink or peach then you must try Skinny Dip!  It’s a perfect shade for french manicures too!  OBSESSED!!!!

I cheated on this one…. I actually used one coat of Skinny Dip over 1 coat of Bare With Me to add a bit more creamy depth to bare with me.  Then to add some sparkle i lightly dusted Born Pretty Store Rainbow Holo Powder over the top of each nail at the base.  LOVE THIS COMBO!!!!


  • Wild Nude:  Light Tan with a wash of white

Wild Nude is a nice shade if you’re looking for a subtle tan nail.  Opaque and creamy.


Another spicy shade, clothing optional is a great warm shade for the summer.


If you’re looking for a new deep brown check out truth or bare.


  • Exposed:  Mossy green with a slight white overcast

Exposed is a gorgeous muted mossy green.  Perfect for anyone feeling in a camo mood.


Winning Streak is a fun smoky deep purple.  Love this shade!

And there you have it!  My top 3 are Skinny Dip, Without A Stitch, Mooning and the combo of Skinny Dip over Bare With Me.

Since this collection is only available for a limited time i would highly suggest picking up a few bottles from the group.
