Tons of new Essie landed on my desk recently, but seeing Essie Treat Love & Color in new shades got me really excited! Before this set of 4, there were only 3 shades created – so this bumps it on up to 7. They kept with the “office safe” styled shades but the new ones offer a bit more opacity than the previous.
What is the Essie Treat Love & Color line? It’s an advanced 1-step nail care + color range with 60% less peeling and 30% less breakage in just one week to your nails. No base or top coat required.
The initial 3 shades that debuted (you can check them out HERE) were sheer and had a touch of shimmer. Perfect for brightening the appearance of your nails while giving a nice wash of color. The 4 new shades that have been released are more opaque and range from a pale baby pink to a mauvey chocolate brown.
Let’s take a look!

Essie Treat Love & Color New Shades Overview
I’m happy to see Essie expanding on this line. One thing to remember is that the Treat Love & Color line isn’t so much a nail polish line, but a nail care line from Essie. While the colors may not be the visually bright and bold shades, they aren’t meant to be. They are more for neutralizing nail color while improving your nails health. However, if you like the idea of them, but the 3 debut colors were too sheer for your personal tastes, now there are more opaque options for you.
I personally don’t have peeling or brittle nails, so as far as those claims go, I honestly can not tell you one way or the other if they improved. I am mentioning this for full disclosure. I can only show the colors available, I can’t actually say whether they helped my nails or not. Life gave me icky skin, but incredibly healthy nails. We can’t have it all I guess!
Price: $10.00 Each

All 7 colors are now available, so if you liked the idea of the collection before, but weren’t keen on sheer shades – then now is your time to try it and see what you think. If you’ve previously tried these, I’d love to hear your thoughts and whether they helped you out of not!
