7 Best Metallic Essie Shades to Try for Your Next ManicureJanuary 22, 2019
Heavy metals are making a comeback, particularly on nails. It seems like everything is dusted with a futuristic chrome sheen these days, and we’re not mad it. In fact, we’re embracing the metallic trend and wearing it all over our faces (think eyes, lips and even our cheeks). We love metallic nail polish shades, too, which is why we’ve rounded our favorite metal hues from Essie ahead:
For a subdued metallic that can be worn any day of the week, try Pure Pearlfection, an iridescent shade that’s beautiful on its own or layered over your favorite shade.
For a knockout shade that’s perfectly extra, you need Million Mile Hues in your stash — a gold chrome metallic that’ll draw attention to your nails wherever you go. Rock this all over for a over the top look, or use it for detail work to create your own personal work of art.
One of Essie’s newest shades, Aprés Chic is an iconic platinum that feels ultra-luxe on a budget. It’s a wintry hue that feels particularly edgy and is a perfect option for anyone looking to take their mani to the next level.
A bronzey-gold hue with the slightest kiss of pink, Gold Gilding is a neutral polish that is perfect for anyone who’s new to the world of metallics. It’s also a member of Essie’s Gel Couture line, a long-wearing formula that mimics gel polish without the UV light and removal process.
For a true bronze hue, try Leggy Legend, a metallic shade that give us rocker chic vibes. It’s hard not to fall in love with this copper-y shade, which feels like fall and offers a slick, high shine finish.
One of our favorite shades from Essie’s Fall 2018 collection, Say it Ain’t Soho is a metallic orange hue that looks stunning on dark skin. The amber shade reminds us of the gem for which its named and a solid option to consider for your next mani.
This vintage-y rose gold hue is perfect for an ultra-special occasion (like a wedding day) or an occasion where you want to rock a little more than a nude nail. It’s also part of Essie’s Gel Couture line, meaning you can expect a chip-free mani that lasts (at least) a week or more. Need we say more?
