When these beautiful Essie polishes ($16.95AUD) landed in my mail box all I could think of was “yes!” I wish I could wrap myself up in cashmere right now, because this Winter has been unseasonable cold! These limited edition polishes all dry to a satin matte finish, however if you pay close attention to the bottle you’ll notice that virtually all shades have micro-shimmers that look amazing. Unfortunately you can’t really see it once the formula dries to a matte finish and I found the only way to “draw out” the shimmer is to apply a shiny top coat. In all the swatches below I’ve applied a glossy top coat to my ring finger so you can see the difference.
Personally I much prefer these polishes with a glossy top coat, just because of the amazing micro shimmers that really give this collection an amazing twist. Just Stitched is my favourite from this collection, at first swatch I thought it was going to come out frosted, but instead it’s a stunning satin finish with the most beautiful lavender micro shimmers. A definite favourite!
If you are interested, you can pick one up from Priceline between August and September 2015.
