I know, I’m a bit late to the party but anyway… here it is, Essie’s Cuddle With Color collection for fall 2009.
Today I have 5 colors to show to you. I’m missing the dark blue one called Midnight Cami. Gejba will show it to you later.
Chinchilly is a beautiful creme light grey. I love it!
There is one coat of Silver Bullions on my pointer finger and one coat of Matte About You on my pinky.
One coat of Matte About Your over Silver Bullions.
A few dots with Matte About you.
Mink Muffs is a creme chocolate brown with a hint of grey to it. It dries darker on the nail than it is in the bottle. There are two coats shown in the picture.
With one coat of Matte About You.
I played around with dots, so here’s neon orange shade Bright Tights on Matte About You.
Bright Tights is a creme neon orange shade. There are three coats shown in the picture below. It dries in a satin finish, which is common for neon shades. It’s a bit streaky to apply and I needed three coats to make it opaque and even. I achieved best results when I worked with medium thick coats and with only three brush strokes as this polish dries very quickly.
Angora Cardi is a really interesting color. It looked fantastic on the promo sheets. When I got my hands on it, I was disappointed. It looked so.. meh… It looks so dirty in the bottle. Really! But when applied on the nails… pure beauty! Again, it dries darker that it’s in the bottle. I love this color! It totally screams fall to me.
Pink Parka is a creme neon pink shade. Nothing more to say about it. The application was good. I only needed two coats to make it opaque and even.
So, that’s almost a whole collection. What do you think so far? Like it or not?
