“Be a shearling darling this season with colours so hot; there is no time to mind your mittens in the cold, frigid air. Layer up in a warm & toasty turtleneck and put on the parka perfect with the sable collar, it’s time for private lessons on the slopes. No matter what, you’ll toggle to the top in style!”

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!
