In 1981 Essie Weingarten established Essie Cosmetics. As a child she was fascinated by nail polish, and at the age of 12 she had her first manicure. "I think I was my nail technician's youngest client ever, and nail lacquer has been my obsession ever since," confides the always candid Essie. Driven by her passion and her innate ability to key in on the hottest shades, Essie Weingarten and her partner Max Sortino created a wildly successful nail care empire. In the footsteps of cosmetic giants before her Essie created her line slowly, starting with just 12 shades and 3 nail treatments.

Essie thought Vegas would be the perfect place to launch her products. "After all, the people who work in Vegas - the showgirls, dancers, dealers - needed to take care of their hands and look good for their jobs," she says. Today, 4 of the original 12 colours are still hot sellers including: Baby's Breath, Blanc, and Bordeaux. When Essie returned to New York, the phones started ringing and orders started pouring in.

Beauty professionals quickly found Essie's chip-resistant formula, outstanding durability and fashion forward colour selection far superior to anything else on the market. Soon, top nail techs, models, editors, and celebrities such as Madonna, Sharon Stone, and Cindy Crawford were among Essie's biggest fans. All were drawn to the line's exceptional quality and whimsical shade names. Ballet Slippers (designated a "classic" by beauty industry insiders), Mademoiselle, and A-List are amongst Essie's most popular award-winning shades. Essie introduces 4 new collections a year seasonally and the line includes over 200 shades.

TIPS AND TRICKS

What do you have in common with Madonna, Sharon Stone and Cindy Crawford? Yes, you are beautiful and you have discriminating taste in your nail colour. Essie is the name behind the nails and when the A-Lister's need to look their best, Essie is what they use.

For over 25 years, Essie has been the beauty industry's leading authority on nail care and colour.

ESSIE'S HELP SELF CORNER

Dear Essie,

Help! I just cracked a nail and can't get to a salon. What can I do?

It's always sad when you have ten perfect nails and one starts to break. Here's what you can do to save that nail and prevent it from breaking further.

Cut a small strip from an unused tea bag and cover the break using Essie's '3-way glaze' or nail glue if you have some. The '3-way glaze' will glue the tea bag fabric over the nail and act as an instant patch. Add the topcoat and voila! Your nail will be as good as new.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Essie,

Ouch! I just got a horrific paper cut on my index finger that really smarts. What can I do?

You can place a small drop of base or topcoat to seal the cut. It will sting a little when first applied, but after the cut has been sealed, it won't hurt anymore!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Essie,

I got my nails done five days ago and they are starting to look dull. I can't get to a salon for a fresh manicure. What can I do to get that 'just back from the salon' shine?

Although our topcoat is strong, durable and lasts for up to a week, everyday tasks like gardening or washing dishes can wear away the topcoat leaving nails looking dull. Refresh that mani with 'shine-e', the nail solution that restores shine and helps prolong the life of your nail colour.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Essie,

My cuticles get so dry between manicures and I am especially prone to hang nails. Do you have a product that can help me?

Our hands are always exposed to the outside world and nails and cuticles can suffer, especially in winter. Try our 'apricot cuticle oil'. Its gentle, natural oils moisturise dry cuticles and also helps prevent hang- nails. Apply just before bedtime so those helpful oils can do their magic overnight. Use 'apricot cuticle oil' on your toes too to keep those cuticles soft and manageable.

Another secret is to place some' apricot cuticle oil' underneath nails to add needed moisturising agents especially during those drying winter months.

Travelling? Take our 'cuticle pen' with you. Its small compact size will fit in your cosmetic bag and can even be taken on board for those long flights. It is easy to apply with no fuss, no mess.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Essie,

I like to let my nails 'go bare' sometimes, but they are an ugly yellow colour. Is there something that I can use to get my nails looking healthy again?

There are many things that can discolour nails, for instance, using harsh household cleaners can be a leading culprit. Be sure to use gloves and keep those hands and nails protected from chemicals. A little secret I use is to apply the peel of fresh lemon or grapefruit to discoloured nails. The citric acid will help remove the yellow colour from nail surfaces. Also, use our special 'non-yellow topcoat' on your next manicure to help prevent the nail colour from turning. Special ingredients help protect nail colour from harmful UVA/UVB rays. Think of it as sun block for your nails and ladies, please, whether you're washing dishes, the dog or the car, put those gloves on. Your hands and nails will thank you!

Also remember, your nails are not tools. Do not use your nails in place of screwdrivers, pliers or wire strippers. No matter how tough you think your nails might be; nothing is more likely to ruin a perfect 10 than using them as a paint scraper.
