I created my very own essie shade! Introducing… ‘lauren’s list’

Hi my essie lovers! I am so excited to finally share with you my very own essie shade, ‘lauren’s list’!! It’s an ultra-flattering soft yellow, unlike any other shade in my essie collection and absolutely GORGEOUS. I am forever grateful of being able to visit the essie labs while in New York for Fashion Week and it was literally a dream come true for me to be able to make my own bottle of essie (#lifegoals)! I hope that you all love it as much as I do!

Shown above is two thin coats, I worked hard to make sure the formula was perfect! 😉 (and of course one of my nails had broken prior to Fashion Week so I’m sporting shorties but I just couldn’t wait to share with you guys)!! It also looks great with ‘matte about you’ (shown below)!

Why did I choose yellow?
If you’ve been keeping up with me for a while then you’ll know that I absolutely love a great yellow polish! It’s just so cheerful and unique. I also wanted to make sure that it was unlike any other shade in my current essie collection and something that I could cherish forever. We all know that essie rarely releases yellow shades so I figured I might as well go all out! I first wanted to name this shade ‘yo-lau’ (a play on yellow/yolo/lauren) but went with ‘laurens list’ in the end to keep things simple.

Is it for sale?
I wish that I could share this special shade with ALL of you but unfortunately it’s not for sale. I mean, it would literally be my dream if this shade were to be released but a girl can only wish… 😉

Retired yellow essie shades:
‘barbuda banana’a pastel yellow with subtle shimmer running throughout
This shade would probably be the most similar minus the shimmer and the formula (heard awful things about this formula) and it’s one of the only essie yellows that I do not own (the other is ‘shorty pants’).
‘yellow #3’limited edition yellow released as a Ralph Lauren Collaboration
‘funky limelight’ neon yellow
‘aim to misbehave’ yellow gold released as a limited edition 1000th shade
‘shorty pants’yellow crème
…there’s also ‘chillato’ but that’s a pistachio and leans more green than yellow.

Let me know if you’d like to see swatches of any of these!

I will be updating you all on my essie NYFW experience this week so stay tuned for a detailed post on all the looks and more information on my essie lab visit! Until then I just thought that I’d write a quick post to answer all of your questions regarding my shade ‘lauren’s list’.

Beautiful! You are smart to choose a yellow, many people don’t realize how flattering the right one can be. I love it. And Funky Limelight? Essie pleeease bring back real neons! This shade(and Pink Parka) is gorgeous but so hard to track down.
