This is the best news ever for those of us who are devastated when our favorite nail polish is retired: Essie is bringing back 6 of their most beloved shades for a limited-edition collection this month! The Retro Revival Collection drops December 17th and includes the following already-confirmed shades: Life of the Party (2012), Sequin Sash (2005), Cabana Boy (2005), Bikini with a Martini (2006), and Birthday Suit (1981–one of Essie’s original 12 shades!), with one more surprise shade that is being announced TOMORROW on Essie’s social media (follow them on Twitter and Facebook). Eeeee! Which do you hope it will be?
