Allure Magazine reached out to us and asked us to create a custom shade that was a color without color – like a foundation for nails. In 2010, Kate Middelton wore this shade to her wedding.
I really thought I'd become a prima ballerina one day, who knew I'd end up in the nail polish business?  In 1982, I received the "royal blessing" from the Queen of England, just 7 years after its birth, when Elizabeth II's hairdresser sent me a letter requesting the shade be delivered directly to Buckingham Palace in London!
Years ago, Mademoiselle Magazine asked us for an exclusive color – they wanted the perfect sheer pink that was universally flattering. This shade makes everyone feel like a mademoiselle, from 2 to 102 [year old].
The name of this shade brings ALL of us back to our childhood – whether you enjoyed your marshmallows around a campfire or it was peeps. Marshmallow conjure up fond, sweet memories for everyone.
Once you try it, this timeless greige will get you hooked forever! It did for me. It was a big breakthrough as the first true greige on the market.
Wicked is a shade for the fearless, self-assured, modern woman whose power and charisma is off limit. Since 1993, the dark cherry tint has become an obsession of mine.
In the midst of a snowy winter, there is nothing more comforting than fresh mint candy apple nails. Born in 2008, it became a part of my 2009 Winter collection and has reached cult status ever since.
My father used to bring me downtown (Manhattan) every Sunday when I was a little girl – I had such fond memories of my father taking me shopping for toys downtown.
I don’t know what you were thinking about ladies, but I’m talking about diamonds!

Nail polish is a girl's best friend, and nobody knows that better than Guest Editor Essie Weingarten, founder of essie.
