Evening dolls! Today I have a pretty big post for you...it's the Essie + Preen.Me Collaboration. I'm sure you are familiar with Essie (unless you live in a cave) but you may not be familiar with Preen.Me. It's a beauty website that will help you find new looks! What kind of looks you ask?

It's a great resource site to keep you up to date with the current trends. Anywho, it's a great site and you should sign up for an account if you're interested in any of that stuffs. But for now, let's check out the Essie shades that they sent me to review! Feel free to drop a comment and let me know what you think of Preen.Me or which Essie is your favorite!
So there are 10 polishes in this post, I decided you didn't need more than a couple pictures of each. You're welcome.
I decided to start with the super sheer, super shiny Mademoiselle. I'm pretty sure every nail loving person has this in their stash (now or at one point in time). It's a total classic! Mademoiselle is a clean, soft pink that is a perfect "my nails but better" look. I used 3 coats but you could use 1 or 2 depending on the look you want. No topcoat needed.
Mamba is a shimmery nude that is a perfect shade a palette cleanser. I like that this one leans a bit camel, a but peach so it's definitely not a boring shade. I used 3 coats to even out any streakiness and finished with topcoat.
Mint Candy Apple is probably one of the most popular classic Essie shades. It's a minty blue creme that gives a nice, refreshing feel! I found this one a bit chalky albeit, opaque. I used 2 coats plus topcoat. It's still a bit streaky in some areas but since I reached full coverage I didn't want to use a 3rd coat.
Play Date is a pretty lilac purple creme. This one was kind of sheer but it evened out perfectly in 3 coats. I really like this color for Spring and early Summer! I finished up with topcoat.
Peach Daiquiri is one of my favorites! It's a gorgeous coral crelly with a fantastic formula! It applied evenly and opaque in 3 thin coats. It was super glossy and shiny. But just to help it last I used topcoat.
Bachelorette Bash is a beautiful fuchsia creme. Another great formula and dreamy application. Opaque coverage in 2 coats. Topcoat for that glossy finish!
Winning Streak is another favorite. This is a greyed out purple creme that is soooooo amazing! You want 1 perfect color for Autumn? Get this! Fab formula and application. Perfect coverage in 2 coats plus topcoat.
Plumberry is a sexy reddish, magenta-ish creme. It's a classy color and not as in your face as a true red. So I think it'll be an easier shade to wear. The formula is more of a crelly finish and it's really lovely. Easy application, great coverage in 2 coats. Finished up with topcoat.
All Access Pass is a grape soda purple crelly. Love the vibrant color and the shiny finish! We've got a creamy formula that applied for full coverage in 3 coats. Added topcoat for more shine.
Off Tropic is my 3rd favorite because HELLO! Gorgeous shade of green! Perfect name because it's totally a jungle green. Fabulous creme formula, awesome application. I used 2 coats for full coverage. Finished up with topcoat.
Also wanted to share the topcoat I used for all the polish in this post. Speed Setter is a quick dry topcoat with lots of shine! I found the formula to be pretty great and feel the dry time was quick! I had dry nails within about 5 minutes.
