"Introducing the essie winter 2015 collection. Temperatures are dropping. Snow is falling. Ski chic adventures await. Now is the perfect time to make a dash for the mountains where beautiful vistas, clear skies and a winter wonderland will give you a taste for life at the top. A mountain holiday is the ideal moment to showcase your elevated style; and no apres-ski ensemble is complete without the perfect manicure.
Whether you're feeling luxe or low-key, essie's new collection of six wintery shades are sure to melt hearts- and the winter's chill. Showcasing seductive reds and crisp pastels with an iconic platinum and fiery black, this collection is perfect for me-time or ski-time" according to the official press release.
The Essie Winter 2015 collection is comprised of:
Apres-Chic: a metallic chrome silver. Applied smoothly and evenly without any brush streaks at all. I am so impressed. Highly pigmented. Provided amazing coverage with just a single coat! I am absolutely obsessed with this silver.
Shall we Chalet?: a deep crimson red creme. Has slight blue undertones.
Peak Show: a very light ballet slipper soft pink creme.
Virgin Snow: a light lilac creme.
Altitude Attitude: a brighter red creme, with slight pink undertones.
Haute Tub: a blackened amethyst purple complete with fine purple shimmer. Very highly pigmented. Provided excellent coverage with just one coat.
(all swatches shown here are two coats, and are taken outdoors in natural light).
I really enjoyed this collection. I think it is very fitting for the upcoming holiday season, and will be the perfect offerings as the cooler crisp weather comes our way.
I find the shades to be very sophisticated, yet still maintaining a playful side. I still can't get over how wonderful the formula is on Apres-chic. Usually metallic silver polishes can be extremely streaky, but this wasn't at all. Also, I appreciate that Essie continuously goes out of their comfort zone and introduces new innovative shades to their collection like the gorgeous shimmering Haute Tub.
My personal favorites from this colleciton are: Haute Tub and Apres- chic.
Essie's Winter 2015 collection retails for $8.50 per 0.46 fl oz (13.5 mL) bottle, and is available now.
