If you need your daily dose of pink, this pink polish post is for you! When it comes to staple shades like pink, I tend to collect a number of nuances. After all polish preferences such as shade, shimmer, and sheerness change depending on the season. Around this time of year, I shed the sheers and reach for opaque cremes, a la Essie Minimalistic.

Essie Minimalistic is one of my favorite Essie pinks. I love how pale and clean the color is; it doesn't have lavender, coral, or beige undertones, as many pinks often do. It's surprising how much a small change in undertone can affect overall appearance. I personally find Essie Minimalistic to be generally more wearable for me than Essie Fiji, though it's hard to tell which one's which at first glance!
Thanks for reading! What are your favorite pink polishes? What Essie pinks do you have in your collection?
I love the clean sophisticated pink polishes like this. The name is quite apt, too.
Do you find the application a bit streaky? It seems to be a common issue for pale shades with opaque finish.
Really pretty! :-) I love that picture of all the Essie nail paints together! My favorites pink polishes come from Dior and Sally Hansen.. in fact they are pretty much dupes of each other! :-) I really like SH's Nude Now a very pretty slightly beige pink that works on my complexion!ReplyDelete
My favorite Essie pink is Madamoiselle. It is a pale pink gel that applies sheerly and gives your nails a really natural polished look, you would love it if you don't already have it in your collection!ReplyDelete
French affair is so cute! Love the lightness and girly look of it. Great for my daughter to try out.ReplyDelete
I don't normally like a lot of Essie's paler pinks, but the fact that this is opaque in two coats has me VERY interested! It's really quite gorgeous!ReplyDelete
I feel really lucky I stumbled upon this post! I am on the look out for a pink nail polish and saw minimalistic today and was wondering how it looks like! Now that I see the other options as well, I might go for something warmer!ReplyDelete
Glad this could be of help! Good luck in your search :)Delete
