Essie is one of my favorite nail polish brands. I believe I own close to 100 bottles over the course of a decade of wearing their polish. Each collection always brings something new to the table, and their Winter Collection is no different. What I love about this collection is that the colors have a shimmer to them, so it gives it a bit of a twist for the holidays.
The Winter 2016 collection was inspired by 60's London, so the names of the polish are kitschy. With it being officially winter now, I decided to make a pretty winter scene with the collection (getting my flat lay skills a go this season). Definitely need to thank my elementary school teachers for all those years of diorama's...creating a mini scene comes in handy as a blogger.
Go With The Flowy- white based grey shimmer
Getting Groovy- a gold shimmer
Party On A Platform- red shimmer
Ready To Boa- bronzed brownish shimmer
Oh Behave!- rose gold shimmer
Satin Sister- teal shimmer
Sidebar: My trick for getting my mani to last an entire 7 days - Use acetone to clean the surface of the nail, follow with a base coat, two coats of Essie polish, then end with Gel Setter. On a week when I am doing a lot of cleaning or dishwashing, I will do another coat mid week of Gel Setter just to give it a mid week bump of shine and protection. So far this has work tremendously well.
To be honest, I love all of the shades in the collection. Ready To Boa looked amazing against my skintone, and I loved Go With The Flowy because it's grey, but from a distance it looks as if its white. I want to try Oh Behave! since I have been obsessed with rose gold these days. Satin Sister is going to be great as well for my melanin sisters, and Getting Groovy will be a fun color to wear on my toes. Party On A Platform is the ultimate party red so I would suggest that for NYE party. Definitely make sure you are following me on Instagram to see what color I decide to try next. What do you think of the collection? Are there any colors that you would love to try.? Sound off in the comments.
