What we say:
I am (like all beauty girls) a massive Essie fan. I love the brush, the design of the bottle and most of all… The major array of stunning shades available. Every season I wait with baited breath to find out what colours Essie will be releasing in their new collections, and every season I am impressed. For Winter 2013 (bear in mind that we are a season behind in SA, so this arrived on our shores in 2014), Essie released a collection called “Shearling Darling” which consists of six stunning wintery shades.

I have been wearing the vampire-red “Shearling Darling” shade, a deep red that’s both sexy and sophisticated. I love the colour because it goes with everything I wear, plus it works wonders on all skin tones.

In terms of longevity, I was slightly disappointed, as my nails started chipping on the fourth day of wear (I normally manage five before my first chip), though I am convinced that the freezing cold weather has something to do with the staying-power.

The other shades in the range consist of a dark teal blue, a frosty blue-grey, a reddish brown, a red glitter and a milky mauve. If you love nails as much as we do, this is definitely a collection you need to try!

  1. I never thought I would be, but I am obsessed with this gorgeous nail colour! It’s a pale blue-grey shade, making it the ideal winter colour for your nails. It’s definitely one of my favourites for the season.

    Besides the amazing colour, this nail polish has a shimmer finish, which I am mad about. Another quality I really love about this nail polish is that it wears long without chipping. It’s hard to find a nail polish that doesn’t chip the minute it’s been applied, so I am very impressed with this product.

    I would recommend this product to anyone that loves pastel colours or anyone that’s looking for a beautiful shade for winter. This nail colour is different and will add some spark to those cold days.

  2. I, like a lot of women, am a nail polish addict with about thirty different bottles sitting in my closet. I have the light blue shade called “Essie Mind your Mittens” from this collection. This is a frosty blue grey colour, that was long lasting and did not chip quickly. It’s a perfect shade for the winter weather.
