Giveaway Time! Win the New Summer 2010 Collection by essie

Fountain of 30

May 27, 2010 • Beauty


Everyone's favorite nailpolish brand essie is proud to Introduce their Summer 2010 Collection! It's time to slip into something a little more colorful, don't you think?

Summer is finally here so we can shed the wool and cashmere for cotton and linen. The keyword for summer is: fun! So shed those boring, drab clothes and at last, indulge in seriously sensational color! You have to love colors that are influenced by fashion. especially ones that don't easily chip, like essie polishes.

“This year’s runways reflected the ease of the season with youthful, fun to wear clothing in feminine fabrics,” explains Essie Weingarten, President and Founder of Essie Cosmetics, Ltd.  “I was inspired by the vivid pastels at Versace and the splashy florals at DKNY. I created this collection to reflect the youthful, fun-to-wear flirty frocks.”  The summer fashion trend is all about mixing and matching, and the summer color palette allows for the same fun and freedom. Choose Miss Matched for fingers and Pretty Edgy for toes, or whatever you fancy – since there is no more matchy-matchy!

essie’s Summer 2010 Color Collection:

  • Miss Matched – Sweet, Sheer, Ready For Anything Pink
  • Haute As Hello – Racy, Scorching Coral
  • Knockout Pout – Hot Supercharged Pink
  • Vermillionaire – Heart Pounding Red Orange
  • Demure Vixen – Iridescent Cocoa Mauve
  • Pretty Edgy – Vivid Palmetto Green

Well guess what? This new collection isn't available until next week, but Second City Style is giving away the entire 6-piece collection to one lucky winner. That's right. So what do you have to do? Simply leave a comment to this post telling us your current favorite essie color or color combination (for instance I like a 1 coat of Waltz with 2 coats of Mademoiselle) and which color from the collection you can't wait to try by 12pm EST Thursday, June 3 and we will pick the winner with the best answer.

  2. samantha says:

    My current favorite is damsel in a dress and its a toss up between miss matched and demure vixen for what I want to try or maybe knockout pout (for my toes).

  3. marta says:

    I just bought Jazz from Jcrew and it is my new obsession. I can’t wait to try vermillionaire on my toes!!

  4. Allison says:

    My absolute favorite for fingers is a layer of Marshmallow with a layer of Expose Your Toes – the perfect girly pink! It’s all about Wild Thing on the toes!

  5. Jennifer N. says:

    I love Essie’s Mink Muffs and Mint Candy Apple. They were the perfect dupes for the Chanel lacquers in Jade and Particuliere !

  6. Jane says:

    I LOVE pop art pink and wear it whenever I go out on the weekends. I can’t wait to try miss matched; I love a good clean pink nail polish!

  7. Fianna says:

    I’m in love with Greenport and Lapis of Luxury. Both are such unique colors and as far as I know Greenport is really rare. I had so much luck to get it on ebay for a fair price. It was so hard to find. So now it’s the jewel in my nail polish collection.
    I can’t wait to try Demure Vixen since it seems as it is such an exciting and uncommon color. I don’t own anything similar and I’m really looking forward to the release date of the collection.

  8. Jen says:

    Mint Candy Apple! I love it even though the haters say aqua/green nail color isn’t appropriate past middle school. Blue nails 4 lyfe.

  9. Dawnmarie says:

    I love splash of grenadine on my nails and love an oldie but a goodie: viva la vespa on my toes.

  10. Meghan says:

    I loveee mint candy apple and I can’t wait to try pretty edgy!! I like going with unexpectated shades.. conversation starters 😉

  11. Ariana A says:

    mint candy apple. i have it on my toes right now.

  12. demure vixen is my favorite!

  13. Roxy says:

    i’d go with lapis of luxury!
    and I can’t wait to try vermillionaire

  14. FaithT says:

    My fave Essie that I own is Mademoiselle. The one I can’t wait to try is Vermillionaire. Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. Tami says:

    Splash of Grenadine (from Spring 2010) is my favourite thus far! I’m addicted.

  16. Chodessa says:

    For special events I love to do a french manicure with white and Essie’s Jackie Oh My.. it gives an unexpected pearlized look and I always receive TONS of compliments!

  17. Katie says:

    I swear every time I paint my nails with Essie’s hot red “After Sex” I have sex right after!! THANK YOU ESSIE! I can’t wait to try Pretty Edgy…all my friends will be green with envy!

  18. megaera says:

    I love Midnight Cami marbled with Silver Bullions. I love having dark nails, and somehow the deep blue looks gorgeous against my incredibly pale skin, without making me look like a vampire (the way that black nail polish does.) I can’t wait to try Demure Vixen, which will go with ANYTHING!

  19. Leslie says:

    My favorites together are ‘Pink Diamond’ and ‘Funny Face’. Creates a gorgeous, sparkly pink color!
    Can’t wait to try ‘Haute as Hello’!

  20. Danni says:

    My current favorite is “Steel-ing the Scene”! I saw my sister wearing it and it looked good on her so I tried it. I think it looks great with my skin tone. Usually I don’t like silver on me because it is too cool tone or blue, but I love how it is like a warm silvery color. I am really excited to try “Pretty Edgy” and “Haute as Hello”! They are just so gorgeous! I’m not usually attracted to green nail polish, but there is just something so pretty and summery about “Pretty Edgy”. When I first saw it, I was like “woah, I need that!” And for “Haute as Hello,” it just looks like a perfect light coral color (which I have been looking for).

  21. peripatetic33 says:

    my favorite is greenport

  22. samara says:

    damsel in a dress

  23. Kim says:

    My current fave is “need a vacation” and isn’t that the truth!
    I am obsessing over Knockout Pout-dying to splash them on my toes!

  24. Tessa Holly says:

    Lapis of Luxury is my fav, and I can’t wait to try Pretty Edgy.

  25. Mandy says:

    True Love is my favorite of the moment for basic pale pinks, but I could definitely get into that Pretty Edgy green for summer. Although that gorgeous Haute As Hello coral is also calling my name… 😉 All these bright colors are getting me so excited for summer! Bring on the sun!

  26. kfloveinme says:

    My favorite for the past few years has been WICKED. I can wear it all year round.

  27. faith24 says:

    i am a person of contrasts, meaning i like to have different color of a nail polish on my nails and toenails. I always go for bright sexy colors on my toes because i am constantly in heels and i like to draw attention to my legs. I love all the pink/red shades of polish that Essie makes so I go for a bright summery pop of color using Rose Bowl! I always tone down the color on my hands, so I use a sweet innocent light pink shade like Sugar Daddy! Using Essie nail polishes I balance the contrasts in my character- the sweet and the wild one 😉 Thanks Essie!

  28. Valerie H. says:

    I love Essie’s colors–I find they stay on longer and more chip-free than that other popular brand that shall remain nameless. My currents Essie fave is: “Shop til I drop” picked up at J Crew! “Knockout Pout” from the new collection would be great for my toes.

  29. alison says:

    My favorite Essier polish is Golden Nuggets, worn plain, with a base & top coat. It never fails to make my nails look good–natural but with oomph–and always looks chic.
    I’d love to try Demure Vixen. It sounds so interesting and complex, and it’s mid-toned!

  30. Eve says:

    Wow. First of all, thanks so much for this great giveaway! I truly love Essie. They seriously have the best nude/sheer colors. My favotie essie color is 2 coats of Sweet Pie (#324). It’s pinky beige nude color that can be opaque in just 2 coats. Color is flattering on any skin tone on any season. Another great thing about Sweet Pie is that this color could be a “primer” color for other colors. For example, if I want to wear something very sheer (like Essie Sugar Daddy), applying 1 coat of Sweet Pie before applying Sugar Daddy will allow Sugar Daddy to show its true color– as in the bottle. Usually for sheer colors you need 4-5 coats and it’s pain to wait for thick coats to dry– but with Sweet Pie there’s no worry. It even looks good as a pedicure. I truly love Essie. Thanks for this opportunity again! ♥

  31. Eve says:

    Oh shoot and I forgot to mention my most wanted color from this new collection! I hope this doesn’t disqualify me– please count my posts as one! :/
    My fav is Haute As Hello. I saw this nail polish on a YouTube guru and she mentioned how beautiful this coral color is. I am a sucker for coral and pink! so this collection rocks. Again please count this as an addition to my post, not a separate post (I am not trying to cheat here!)

  32. love the bahama mama

  33. Angela K says:

    My current favorite is pop art pink from essie’s spring collection! A very nice, versatile pink that also looks good layered over other colors.
    I can’t wait to try Knockout Pout from the summer collection!

  34. Lauren says:

    My favorite color is Lilacism because it is perfect for spring! Purple is a little unusual but the girlie pastel version is so feminine! I’d love to have my first full essie collection of the summer line because the peach and deep greens are so unique!

  35. Heather Cline says:

    I adore Essie nail polish and just love how easy the application is. I think I am probably going to have to say that Sexy Divide is my favorite Essie polish. It is such a beautiful deep purple and it makes me feel a tad sexy when I wear it. I can’t wait to try Pretty Edgy because I don’t have any color relatively similar to it. In fact I don’t wear green nail polish that frequently and if I do it is a dark forest green so I would love to try Pretty Edgy and go outside my normal habits!

  36. Jade says:

    Skinny dipping on my fingers and lincoln park on my toes! Knockout Pout is gorgeous – can’t wait to try it!

  37. Angie says:

    So … I’m a total weirdo sometimes, but I like Barbados Blue on my thumb, Pop Art Pink on my index, Mint Candy Apple on my middle, Chips No Potatoes on my ring finger and Main Squeeze on my pinky! I wear these when I’m in the pastel kind-of-mood. Otherwise, it’s mostly Aruba Blue or Damsel In A Dress!! <3 LOVE ESSIE!!!

  38. My absolute favorite Essie color of the moment is Neo Whimsical. I usually don’t paint my nails with the same color more than once, but I’ve already used it three times in the last two months! I can’t get enough! As for this collection, Demure Vixen is definitely my first choice. But I love them all!

  39. Bubbles0luv says:

    Ballet Slipper! Perfect baby pink. Uber chic on matching fingers and toes!

  40. Taylor says:

    Current obsession: 2 coats of hot tamele topped with a coat of cool-lots!

  41. Kelly Ann Higgins says:

    St Bart’s Blue is my favorite Essie color & I can’t wait to try Vermillionaire.

  42. Scientific Housewife says:

    I like Knockout Pout, it’s a great color and I’d love to try it as well!

  43. Lilia Hamilton says:

    I LOVE several coats of Haute as Hello with a single drop of Vermillionaire in the bottom right corner of each nail(;

  44. Barb T says:

    I love the pop art pink and watermelon. Pop on the fingers and Watermelon on the toes!! Looking forward to the new colors!
