I Found the One: Essie Maximillian Strasse Her Nail Polish

Do you have a favorite polish? The one that is essentially you in a bottle and you can’t stop wearing? Let me introduce you to mine: Essie’s Maximillian Strasse Her.

I first noticed this lovely Essie shade on two of my favorite beauty blogs: Vivianna Does Makeup and Lily Pebbles. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find this color anywhere and had to settle for the sort-of-similar Parka Perfect. When I noticed Maximillian Strasse Her was available on Fragrance Direct for a mere £2.50 I simply had to have her (Fragrance Direct sells old shades and limited edition colors at an amazing discount, so check it out if you are looking for a particular hard to find color).

I have been wearing this unbelievably pretty shade since she arrived. The color is a difficult to define mixture of grey, green, and blue (it shows a little blue on the photographs and a little greener in real life). My obsession with these types of colors was previously limited to the walls of my apartment and cute stationary, but now I can wear it on my nails every day…and I have a feeling it will be there quite often.


Heb jij een favoriete nagellak? Een kleurtje dat echt laat zien wie jij bent en dat je eigenlijk altijd draagt? Mag ik je voorstellen aan de mijne: Essie’s Maximillian Strasse Her.

Ik zag deze geweldige Essie kleur voor het eerst op twee van mijn favoriete beauty blogs: Vivianna Does Makeup en Lily Pebbles. Helaas kon ik de kleur nergens vinden en koos ik uiteindelijk voor de soort-van-vergelijkbare Parka Perfect. Toen ik Maximillian Strasse Her tegenkwam op Fragrance Direct voor slechts £2.50 moest ik haar echt hebben (Fragrance Direct verkoopt oude en limited edition kleuren voor een fijn prijsje, dus kijk zeker even als je nog op zoek bent naar een bepaalde kleur).

Ik draag deze supermooie kleur al sinds het pakketje aankwam. De kleur is een moeilijk te definiëren mengsel van grijs, groen, en blauw (hij komt op de foto wat blauwer en in het echt wat groener over). Mijn obsessie met dat soort kleuren was hiervoor beperkt tot de muren van mijn appartement en schattige accessoires, maar nu kan ik het elke dag op mijn nagels dragen…en ik denk dat dat best vaak gaat gebeuren.

    I own and LOVE that color! I also found it at a discount shop (TJ Maxx) for about half off. I feel like this color could work all year round. I need to pull this one out and start wearing it again! 🙂

    Ooh, what a fabulous find! It definitely looks blue-gray to me in the pics…I will have to see if I can find it in real life and see whether it works with my skin tone 🙂 Love it!

      It just changes color depending on your outfit and the light. Probably looks a bit blue because it is very close to my wall 😀 It is amazing, I can see myself wearing this a lot. xx Anne

    I’ve never heard of this shade. And your description is so accurate, it is the perfect mix of grey, green, and blue! I bet it shifts depending on your outfit. I’m putting this on my wish list! 😀

    Three things that I really like about this post is one, the matching colour theme with the knitwear that you were worn and two, the colour looks a bit darker onto nails than to the bottle which is always a real bonus and lastly, it is such an unique grey shade that is perfect to be worn during summer and in Autumn as well and hence, it can be adorned onto your nails all throughout the year. Great pick.

      Oh yes, this will definitely be a year round favorite 🙂 And I can be a bit too matchy at times (awful how my wall colors match my favorite polish shades 😉
