Essie Fall 2021

As soon as the first Fall collection gets leaked, I just know that more collections will follow. I was just checking my Instagram last night, and my friend Luimination_nails posted about the new Essie Fall 2021 over here. She is always crazy fast with new collections, so if you’re not already following her, you should. I’m pretty sure she will be posting more Fall collections pretty soon. Anyway, fast forward to this morning, I was just casually roaming around on, and I also found that they already listed this collection, but it is out of stock. Still, I’m very excited to share this collection with you, since not all of you have IG!

Update: I posted swatches of the entire collection over here.

The collection

This is what Essie has to say about the new collection:

this fall’s newest essie nail polishes will have you feelin’ amped! introducing the limited edition fall 2021 collection, inspired by a glam, garage band jam session. rock out in these fierce nail polishes—a mix of creams and refined gold pearl shades—that are guaranteed to put you on the road to superstardom.


The collection consists of 6 shades, which are called:

  • Feelin’ amped (deep royal blue with a cream finish)
  • High voltage vinyl (warm onyx green with a refined gold pearl finish)
  • My happy bass (mid-tone yellow glossy nail polish with lime green undertones and a cream finish)
  • Off the record (deep burgundy-red with a cream finish)
  • Sound check you out (light move with a cream finish)
  • Star struck a chord (deep eggplant purple with a refined gold pearl finish)
The new Essie fall 2021 collection. The colors are: High voltage vinyl, Feelin’ amped, Off the record, Sound check you out, My happy bass, Star struck a chord

My opinion

Fall collections are my favorite collections of the year. I definitely think this collection contains some unusual shades, like “my happy bass” and “High voltage vinyl”, but it also contains some fall classics like “Sound check you out” and “Off the record”. I think “Star struck a chord” will be a great shade for all the neutral lovers out there. I’m not sure that everyone will love the entire collection, but I am pretty sure that there is something in this collection for everyone!


So obviously, this collection is not available yet. If I look back to previous years, the Essie fall collections are sometimes already available as early as August. But I would say that in most regular stores, this fall collection is usually available somewhere in September/October. Of course, I will update this post if I find it early or it is in stock somewhere, so be sure to come back every now and then!

Update: Apparently, the collection is available right now on the Ulta website! I’ve also spotted them over here on Amazon (affiliate link) and on the Beyond Polish website over here (affiliate link). I posted swatches of the collection over here.

  1. Hi Anouk,
    I’m always amazed at how you gather all the information so early on. I now have a better idea of the colors and find: more autumn hardly goes! Awesome. And thanks for sharing your thoughts!
    Of course, you don’t have to like every color for yourself (I can’t do anything with mustard yellow), yet I appreciate the idea behind the collection. I’m particularly curious about the mauve shade, which spontaneously reminds me a little of “Wireless is more” – one of my favorite colors.
    I look forward when the colors come in the stores in the fall and will certainly take one or the other color 🙂
    Best, Britt

    1. Thanks for your comment, it is appreciated 🙂
      People were already googling for the Essie Fall 2021 since March, so when I saw it on IG, it was impossible not to share!

      I think the mustard yellow is a case of you either hate it or you love it. But the others for me are just Autumn heaven!
