Hi loves! Christmas is fast approaching!! Have you finished your Christmas shopping? I have not so I need to get it together. But first, let’s take a look at the gorgeous Winter 2017 Collection by essie.
These beauties were inspired by New Year’s Eve festivities! Not very typical Winter shades, but I like the change in atmosphere. Let’s check them out.
This is a bright crimson red creme. Lovely formula! Not entirely unique of course, but this is such a beauty!! If you don’t own anything like it, I highly recommend because it has such a great formula. Super pigmented. This is 2 coats.
SUIT & TIED
This is a sandy beige nude creme. Almost opaque in 1 coat. I did find a few patches here and there so I did 2 coats for full opacity. I’m not entirely crazy about this color on my medium skin tone. I feel like this would look amazing on a more fair skin tone.
ON YOUR MISTLETOES
This is a deep pigmented oxford blue creme. Soo soo soooo pigmented! It was almost opaque in 1 coat, but I did 2 here.
NEW YEAR, NEW HUE
This is a berry magenta purple creme. Delicious! Super pigmented as well and buttery smooth. I did 2 coats here. It’s just so yummy!
This is a slate grey with amber iridescent shimmer. It’s a little water on the first coat, but covers perfectly in 2 coast. I love this super different polish for essie! I don’t have anything else like it!
This gorgeous fiery amber shimmer is amazing!!
RING IN THE BLING
This is a ruby red metallic shimmer. Also watery on the first coat, but covers amazing in 2 coats. So Christmas-y and gorgeous!
The shimmer stands out so perfectly! Love it!
