Spin The Bottle is the lightest of the round up, but one that I've repurchased multiple times as it works throughout the year - complimenting a tan as well as going well with cosy Autumnal layers. It's leans more towards the pink side of your traditional nude hue, but it would compliment all skin tones.
For a classic nude shade, Bare With Me is my top choice and although it's got a peachy tone to it, it can still be easily worn in the colder season. This barely there hue is great for everyday wear and can easily be topped up if it starts to chip towards the end of the working week.
One of the most popular Essie shades is Angora Cardi and for a very good reason too. It's a berry shade with a difference as it isn't as intense as my usual picks, but it still offers a statement nail. It's almost got a creamy look to it, but it's the longest lasting shade in terms of wear from this bunch of nail polishes.
Ahh... Bahama Mama - the shade that I would argue is my most worn and loved Essie nail polish ever. It's deep, it's rich and the burgundy shade is the epitome of Autumn to me! It's super long lasting and it my go-to pick whenever I'm giving myself a manicure.
If you want something a little darker, then I'd recommend Sole Mate - a perfect option for the lead up to Halloween. It may look like Bahama Mama in the pot and from afar it may look black in tone, but it's actually more of a deep purple shade that can give you an opaque finish in just one layer, but after two and a top coat you've got yourself a long lasting, glossy nail shade.
