Essie Valentine’s Day 2022 Collection – Swatches & Review

Accidentally took a little blog break, (WHOOPS. I know it says the 2nd, I’m posting this on the 28th but always adjust the dates to when they were posted on Instagram to keep them in order and not crowding up one day) but HERE WE GO, time to get back into LOTS of swatches.

It’s just always nice to have a more searchable and accessible place for all of the collections I put on my Instagram. (And I do recommend following my Instagram, all of these get posted there first). But let’s get on back to my love, blogging about polish.

That’s right, it’s time for loveeee in the form of cute little nail polish bottles. As always there are 6 Valentine’s themed colors here, ranging from pearly whites to bright reds and mauves. And as always, the caps are decorated with cute little Valentine’s imagery as well, which you can see in the below photo. I grabbed mine from Ulta (who shipped them loosely with but one thing of bubble wrap, resulting in a broken polish, and then subsequently shipped me a replacement, you should know better Ulta).

We have a half and half split of creams and shimmery shades here, which I’m never mad at. So let’s get right into the swatches, after all you’ve been waiting long enough for some new posts!
