Happy December lovelies! Today I’d like to share the Essie Winter 2016 Collection with you!
Inspired by London nights in the Land of Mod and the groovy styles of the Swinging Sixties, the Essie Winter 2016 Collection features 6 new polishes that include rich metallics, subtle frosts and luscious crèmes that will have you holiday ready in no time.
First up is Oh Behave!, a pretty peach frost that is fully opaque in 3 thin coats. The formula was easy to apply: no streaks and a nice even finish. Her retro self is pictured below with one coat of glossy topper.
Ready to Boa
A bronze mahogany frost, Ready to Boa adds the most beautiful shimmer to a deep dark red. This one is sure to make your holidays sparkle! 🙂 She’s pigmented enough to give you full coverage in one glorious coat (OCW!), but I applied 2 coats for the picture below to increase longevity. Top coat in full effect.
Getting Groovy is a perfect warm metallic gold for the holidays. She has a stellar formula and is fully opaque in 2 easy peasy coats. She’s a great candidate for tape manis, especially when paired with a green or red crème (keep reading for 2 new polishes that fit this bill!). She’s also great for stamping if that’s your bag.
Party on a Platform
Next up is Party on a Platform, a rich garnet crème that offers a great, classic red with no staining and another top-notch formula. Pictured below is 2 coats with topper.
Ditto the deets for Party on a Platform for this groovy teal crème. She is amazeballs: buttery crème formula, even application, no staining, and the richest of pigments. Love at first paint! You need her in your life for winter, for always.
Go With The Flowy
This beautiful dove grey with subtle blue shimmer is Go With The Flowy. She reminds me of fresh-fallen snow and is a lovely take on grey for the holidays/winter. According to my IG page she’s your fav! Pictured below is 3 thin coats with glossy topper, per usual.
And there you have it! The entire Essie Winter 2016 Collection swatched for your viewing pleasure! Which is your fav? I’m still drooling over the gorgeous teal crème that is Satin Sister!
Last but not least, here’s proof that Getting Groovy pairs perfectly with red and green crème polishes for the holidays! 😉
Thanks for stopping by!
