Essie Mega Mini Treasures: Great Gift for Your BFF

Published in: Nails

If it weren’t for Essie’s hot holiday collection, I might actually feel the cold this winter. Their Winter 2008 Collection totally rocks, and now they’re coming at me with the Mega Mini Treasures set ($15). Way to go, Essie!


It comes with mini-bottles of Essie polish (0.16-fl oz each) in four easy-to-wear shades…

  • Imported Champagne: metallic golden beige
  • Jelly Apple: creamy red
  • Berry Hard: creamy dark berry
  • Pink Glove Service: creamy translucent petal pink


What do you think of the red case? Looks like a nice stocking stuffer, right? You don’t even have to wrap it! Just pop on a ribbon and voila… regular Santa’s little helper. 🙂

    Hi Yadiq,

    I really love it! I like that the color has warmth and it’s not too milky looking. I totally agree that it would be so cute with a French manicure!

    I am feeling a little better today. I haven’t been good about exercising and that seems to affect my mood… gotta get back on track. Must. Go. Running.

    How are you doing? 🙂

    i have been bad too between one dr appt and the next i am a hot mess!

    another really nice essie color is cherry pop its a red version of pink glove like a cherry jelly color

    i worked out last night but unproductive because i am still weak from the antibiotics i just finished taking 🙁 tonight i will work out with my trainer hopefully i will be productive

    in a few weeks i have to get a procedure done at the dr not looking forward to it
    i feel like i am falling apart yo no matter how much i take care of myself i still have issues uggh its almost as if the more i take care of myself the worse i am in terms of health – BOO!
    i am sure alot of people our age feel like this these days too!

    keep your chin up girl everything turns around sometime!

  5. Tiera says:

    Jelly Apple looks delicious! I hope someone gets this for me for Christmas *leaving this bookmarked on my BF’s computer!*

    Hi Yadiq,

    OH! Cherry Pop sounds really pretty. There’s a beauty store right around the corner so I will have to go hunting. 🙂

    I hope your procedure goes smoothly… after it’s done I think you should treat yourself to the healing powers of Chanel.

    I’ll keep my chin up if you do the same. It’s getting cold out but I made myself run anyway. I am feel much better.

  7. Karen says:

    Hi Katee,

    Yup! I agree!

  8. Karen says:

    Hi Tiera,

    LOL… let that boy know that this is a perfect stocking stuffer, girlfriend!

    Pink glove service is AMAZING! Can I buy it separately? The other colors don’t do much for me.

    My bag arrived today btw! I am in LOVE. I’m gonna take some pictures tomorrow. 😀

    Hmm,the colors don’t look that unique to me 🙁

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Ellery,

    Yes, you can! Here’s a link to the individual polish — Pink Glove Service.

    YAY! I can’t wait to see pictures of your new MJ cutie. Did you put your stuff in it yet? It looks like it holds a ton!

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Sleepy,

    I think they purposefully put in wearable and not crazy shades… I like these because they’re so tiny! I have an addiction to mini-polishes. 🙂

  13. Catherine says:

    Berry Hard looks like THE perfect berry I’ve been looking for! And I adore shades like Imported Champagne and Pink Glove Service. I’m definitely going to have to go to Nordstrom’s soon or something.

    I totally hear you on the running… but I’m so lazy… =(

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Catherine,

    Yay! There’s something about a deep, rich berry color… I feel like it’s a classic. 🙂

    Ugh, it’s getting harder to get myself outside with the weather getting colder. I wish I had a treadmill! It would make it a billion times easier. How long have you been running for?

    Karen- the Essie colors rock, however my manicurist is a male and he will flip because the bottles are so small!
