The nail polish brand Essie is renowned for classy and elegant shades. Focusing on shades of red, plum, and pink, Essie regularly releases beautiful, classic polishes. 

HistoryEdit

Essie was created and released their first collection in 1981, several of the colors in this collection are still available today. In 1982 Essie released a top coat and a base coat as well as started selling internationally. Celebrities began to take notice of Essie in 1983 when Joan Rivers mentioned wearing Essie Jelly Apple. In 1985 Essie made one of their most important branding decisions, introducing their iconic square bottle. Essie got the royal treatment in 1989 when it was announced that the Queen of England would only wear Essie Ballet Slippers on her nails. 

In 1999 Essie expanded their brand to include lotions, nail care products, and their award winning "facial for hands" Essie Ejuvinate. In 2005 Essie created the most expensive nail polish in the world (at the time), I Do was made with platinum and cost $55,000 a bottle.

Essie was purchased by L'Oreal in 2010. Essie was again preferred by royalty when Kate Middleton wore Essie Allure on her wedding day.In 2013 Essie Bikini So Teeny became the best selling nail polish of all time.

Starry Starry NightEdit

Essie Starry Starry Night 1

The ever elusive, Starry Starry Night

One particular color, Essie Starry Starry Night has become infamous in it's rarity. SSN has become a cult obsession. Bottles sell for dollars on Ebay and it is the ultimate find. Every once in a while a bottle will show up during someone's very lucky dusty hunt or a store will find a few bottles in their back room and put them out, usually in the clearence section on a huge sale but it is rare. SSN was released in the 80s (no one seems to remember when exactly) but it was discontinued. There was a limited re-release in 2010 but the colour match was off, it contained microglitter rather than the diamond dust that the original uses, and the price was also $2 more expensive than most Essie polishes. These days SSN is often considered the Holy Grail of hard to find polishes, people search for years. Several dupes exist but most of them are also discontinued and almost as hard to find as Starry Starry Night.
