Picking a nail polish color is one of the hardest parts of any nail appointment. With so many beautiful options it’s hard to choose just one, and there’s nothing worse than forcing your nail tech to swatch 30 different polishes on your nails. So we tapped the M Crowd, our wildly talented and beauty obsessed group of influencers, for their go-to Essie polishes whenever they head to the salon.


See their picks, ahead:


Julia Keeps it Classic…

“My favorite Essie polish shade is definitely Ballet Slippers. You can’t go wrong with it whether it’s on your fingers and/or toes!” The iconic shade is sold once every 90 seconds, and is loved by royalty and beauty gurus alike.

 

This Shade is Ashley’s Favorite Nude…

Finding a nude polish that works for your skin tone can be difficult and often comes down to recommendations from friends and lots of trial and error. Ashley’s recommendation is the sparkling, golden beige shade “Imported Bubbly” which she calls her “absolute perfect nude.”


Lonyea Loves a Moody Hue…

Even though Lonyea usually rocks gel polish, when she does get a regular manicure she reaches for Winning Streak — a purple-gray shade that is, “so fall but so stunning.” We can’t help but agree!


Madison Likes a Polished Finish…

Madison’s fave happens to be the fourth best-selling Essie shade of all time so it’s no surprise that it’s at the top of her list. The soft mauve shade, Lady Like, looks good on pretty much everyone and gives her nails a “clean and polished look.”


The Pale Shimmery Shade That Stole Miranda’s Heart…

Miranda has her heart set on Satin Slipper, a champagne ivory shade that lasts all week. It’s from Essie’s Gel Couture range, the longwearing polish line that mimics a gel polish without the UV lights. Here’s why it’s Miranda’s fave: “It’s such a great pink off-white that looks very chic and matches any outfit. I’m a fan of pale polishes, and this is a beaute.”
