♡ Essie Winter 2013

December 10, 2013


As much as I love nail polish, I've never really been into dark or colorful tips, but tend to stick to nudes and pastels all year round. Though this winter, all that has changed. After spotting Essie's mini winter collection in Boots, I just couldn't get the deep burgundy shade (Shearling Darling) and the accompanying glitter (Toggle to the Top) out of my head. After a lot of humming and haring, I decided to face my fears and give the festive deep red nail a go. The verdict? I'm in love. 'Shearling Darling' is a gorgeous sophisticated wine red that looks great with my winter wardrobe, whilst a swipe of 'Toggle to the Top' layered over the top adds the perfect festive finish. This little combination has definitely sparked a love affair for dark nails that i'm pretty sure will lead to further (necessary) purchases of similar hued polish.

The shade 'Parka Perfect' is also a gorgeous shade for winter, and as it's quite neutral, it's pretty easy to wear too. I'm sure that this blue/grey pastel will also be getting a lot of use come spring and summer.

For just £12.99, Essie's mini collection's are a great way to try out new shades and would also make a great gift or stocking filler. If there are any left on shelves, I would definitely recommend giving their winter collection a whirl...if you haven't done already!

  2. All of these shades look lovely!

    I could never find shades of Essie nail polish I liked but recently, I picked up Wicked. Colours like that are so nice during colder months.

    Do you find Essie nail polishes long lasting though? I've not had much luck keeping mine in place.

  4. They are such nice winter colours but the Parka Perfect is my favourite. I have never tried Essie polishes before so this would be a good start for me.
