GO WITH THE FLOWY:

This is a dove grey cream polish with very fine & subtle silver & light blue shimmers. Generally these kind of colors are hard to pull off but the hint of shimmers make it interesting. You will need 2-3 coats to make the coverage even. And also, this was the hardest color to photograph properly, but I did my best to portrait the real thing.

GETTING GROOVY:

This is a sparkling nail color with gold & silver fine glitters. This is a perfect color for holidays!

SATIN SISTER:

It’s rich teal cream nail color.  With just 1 coat you get excellent coverage.

MY THOUGHTS:

  • The cream colors have excellent coverage. The shimmer ones are also good, but you will need 2-3 coats to get even coverage.
  • The formula dries down pretty quick.
  • As I didn’t apply any base or top coat, the colors stayed unchipped 2-3 days on my nails. With base and top coats it stayed longer.
  • The shades are versatile and properly chosen for Winter.

PROS:

 ♦ Quick dry time.

 ♦ Affordable.

 ♦ Nice color range

CONS:

 ♦ Shimmery ones needed 2-3 coats of application.

 ♦ You will need to apply a top coat to prolong the wear of the nail colors.

IN A NUTSHELL:

A short story before sharing my final thought of this collection.

I wanted to wear Essie nail colors on my wedding, but ordering online from Bangladesh meant paying 4-5 times the actual cost. So I had to skip buying those colors I picked so hopefully!  Now that I have had the opportunity to work with Essie and actually try out their products, I am truly honored and beaming happily like a teenager.

So in a nutshell; Essie 2016 Winter collection is a great addition to any nail color addicts’ collection. I am loving these!
