Essie Winter 2016 Swatches & Review
Hey there nail enthusiasts!
Essie recently launched their new Winter 2016 collection. Here’s a lil’ background on the collection and up close pics of each shade!
Inspired by nights out in the land of mod and epicenter of chic: London in the ’60’s Essie’s Winter 2016 collection is comprised of multifaceted frosts, rich cremes and dazzling shimmers.
Here’s a closer look at the line up.
Essie Winter 2016
- ready to boa– glistening bronzed mahogany
- party on a platform – london garnet red
- oh behave! – minx peach frost
- getting groovy– metallic gold palladium
- satin sister – sleek ebony peacock blue
- go with the flowy – cloudlike dove gray
ready to boa- glistening bronzed mahogany– retail: $9.00
I’m a big fan of reds & browns and Ready to Boa is a perfect blend of both with a hint of shimmer. In the photo below i paired it with “Take Me To Thread” from essie’s gel couture collection.
party on a platform – london garnet red – retail: $9.00
Another one of my favorites part on a platform is a warm winter red. No problems as far as streaking. It’s also great to pair with a glittery gold at the base or on the tips for the holidays.
oh behave! – minx peach frost- retail $9.00
“Oh behave” is a frosty peach, but a little pale for my taste. Not my favorite, but if you have a darker complexion or a creamy pale complexion this shade might work for you.
getting groovy- metallic gold palladium– retail $9.00
The ultimate sparkly gold perfect for the holidays! Getting Groovy is selling out, so if you have a hard time locating it online try Walmart, Target or beautyplussalon.com
Jet.com sells it too, Plus you get 15% off your first 3 orders with code WELCOME15.
satin sister – sleek ebony peacock blue– retail $9.00
A favorite of mine, satin sister can be worn with only 1 coat as shown below! It’s super shiny and applies really evenly and smoothly. I’m not even wearing a top coat in the photo below! A must try for the winter season!
go with the flowy – cloud like dove gray– retail $9.00
Go with the flowy a hybrid of white and gray, it’s a nice alternative for a soft almost white for the winter. Shown with 2 coats below and no top coat.
I would definitely recommend trying out the Essie 2016 Winter Collection. My favorites are Ready to Boa, Satin Sister, Getting Groovy and Party on a Platform.
The entire Essie Winter 2016 collection is available now at essie.com, Ulta Beauty, Kohls, amazon.com & local beauty and nail salons nationwide. Each shade retails for $9.00/ bottle.
