Hello world! How is everyone doing in this crazy time we are living? Life is a bit different than it was the last time I posted on my blog. I was away for a bit, but if this COVID-19 has taught me one thing it’s to stay positive and calm. I also want to distract some of you away from the chaos with pretty polish!
Today I’m showing you the gorgeous Timeless Tweeds Collection from the essie gel couture line. Essie was gracious enough to send this beautiful set to me to try out. This collection is a perfect transition from winter to spring so I found it most fitting to post on the first day of spring!
POLISHED & POISED
This is a lovely light ballet pink creme. LOVE! This one applies well and the formula is ok. Not the most pigmented, but it does go on smooth and is opaque in about 2.5 coats. Some of my nails needed an extra coat to make it fully opaque. I love the result. A stunning, chic, perfect for spring mani.
WOVEN WITH WISDOM
This is a medium blue-based pink creme. Now this one had great pigment!! Super creamy and glides on the nails. Opaque in 2 easy peasy coats.
NOT WHAT IT SEAMS
This is a berry mauve creme. It’s a been deeper which is why I say it’s “berry toned”. Perfect to wear in the winter or spring! Opaque in 2 coats with a great formula.
ALL I TWEED
The puns in these names are too cute! This is a bronzey caramel brown filled with gold shimmer. Ladies and gents, we have us a one coat wonder here!!! This one has great coverage, fully opaque and super pigmented in one single thick coat. Love it!
All this shimmery gold goodness is so pretty!
WOOL ME OVER
This is a milk chocolate creme. Great formula and opaque in 2 coats. I’m not crazy about how this looks on my nails because of my skin tone, but it’s a great neutral office-wearing shade.
DOWN TO THE HERRINGBONE
This is a bronzy metallic brown. The formula is nice, but very sheer. I did 2 coats here and it is still sheer but I don’t mind because that makes the polish extra chic.
Here you can see my nail line (VSL) since the polish is a bit sheer. It’s still so pretty thought!
essie is committed, by the end of 2021, to formulate all nail polish products as 8- free, vegan formulas. They are also cruelty free and do not test on animals.
The Timeless Tweeds collection is the FIRST to market in the new essie 8-free formula! How amazing is that? You can purchase the Timeless Tweeds collection on Amazon here. It can also be found at Target, CVS and other retailers that carry essie. I used essie gel setter top coat for all of these swatches which you can get here. It’s not a gel polish, it’s just a gel-like top coat that makes your mani look super shiny like a gel manicure. I love it!
Hope everyone is staying safe and informed! I will continue doing reviews and swatches to hopefully bring some cheer and brightness to your day.
