meet brand essie
the woman behind it all
I fell in love with color as a beauty buyer at Henri Bendel, and I began making my own nail shades. In 1981, my first colors became an instant hit when introduced to nail salons.
Soon I had over 300 shades in 250,000 salons and spas worldwide. Today the name essie is synonymous with gorgeous, rich, premium nail color.
