Essie Lots of Lux

I think I've worn this color at least a couple times before, but a quick search in my nail journal here says I've apparently never posted a swatch!

Essie Sable Collar

Trying out a different way of pulling my images from Instagram. Swatched Essie Sable Collar for this week's nails. It's from Essie's winter 2013 collection, and I've had it for a long time but just somehow never felt like wearing it. https://www.instagram.com/p/BKFRLz6gBc3/?taken-by=eternaldecember   It didn't photograph especially well for me, unfortunately, and I didn't have a...

Here they are in outdoor natural light, two coats each (Leggy Legend on the index and ring,... Continue Reading →

This is two coats, in outdoor natural light, topped with Essie Good to Go top coat (and a bit hastily and sloppily applied, I'm afraid): On A Silver Platter... Continue Reading →

Essie Leggy Legend

As soon as I saw Essie Leggy Legend from this fall's rock era-inspired collection, I knew I had to have it. This is two coats in outdoor natural light in overcast weather, topped with Essie Good to Go top coat: Leggy Legend isn't just any gold-toned polish. The color is a unique bronze-y, shimmery metallic with bright gold... Continue Reading →
