Essie ‘Not Red-y For Bed’ Collection – Swatches & Review

You know, Essie collections have started coming, and they won’t stop coming. (Yes, that’s a Smash Mouth reference there, I am NOT sorry). In the past couple of years, Essie has really ramped up their releases per year, and it can sometimes be hard to keep up. Like for example, in 2020 I have folders for ELEVEN collections that released. And that’s not even including the Gel Couture releases, the ‘Roll With It’ collection and technically, this one also released in 2020.

It’s a LOT. Listen, I can talk about how it’s a lot while reviewing them all, okay. This blog and my Instagram are always here to help you navigate all of the releases and which ones you might actually want to buy. It’s my hobby, and I love doing it. Okay yes, we got that necessary discussion out of the way, now let’s look at this newest collection, my first Essie post of 2021.

This is the ‘Not Red-y for Bed’ collection, and it features 9 shades. We have mostly pink and red tones, along with a neutral and a couple of blues! It’s a very interesting color scheme overall, and I can’t say I can immediately think of any other collections like it. I do love the idea of a more monochromatic moment with some complimentary shades.

Of course, I purchased this from my main love, PolishPick.com. You know the drill, I love them, they have the best prices for mainstreams and super quick shipping. It’s the main way I can afford to just review all of the collections, when each shade is about half the price that they are normally.

So let’s get into the swatches!
