Essie put out two J. Crew exclusive polishes this spring–Milky Way, a caramel-tan I just reviewed, and Peep Show, a bright neon-leaning pink jelly with strong coral tones. These colors have been sold out online for awhile, and Peep Show has become notable for reportedly being featured on the toes of the five-year-old son of J. Crew’s Creative Director, Jenna Lyons. When I found my Essie Milky Way, the store didn’t have any bottles of Peep Show left. I was out of town, so I checked the J. Crew I live near on the off chance they would have some. And I was in luck!
This polish was an Essie for J. Crew exclusive, and it’s not on the J. Crew site anymore. I just started idly looking around during the interest in the neon pink toenails fiasco, and noticed this gorgeous, light creamy brown in old cached search results. Although it’s sold out online, it’s still sitting around at some J. Crew stores, which is where I grabbed mine.
