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?

I have Angora cardi and Midnight cami and have Pink parka on my wishlist after your post also Bright Tights, neon orange dots on grey looks super. :wub:
I love your pic of Angora cardi, it’s a huge lemming for me!! :)
:wub: I love Angora Cardi & Mink Muffs. I have to order those two. Love your nails with the orange dots. Cute! Love the matte looks also. Gorgeous!!
I love Angora Cardi! How do you apply so perfectly and so close to the cuticles. Gorgeous nails!
Stephanie, I don’t have Over The Taupe, but I also think they might be similar. :think:
I love this collection. I think I have all of them except Bright Tights and Mink Muffs. The latter looked like it could be a pretty close dupe to OPI Over the Taupe…
They all look lovely on you. You have exquisite nails and the perfect application doesn’t harm! I love the dot effects. :cool:
Thank you, Jen!
chocaddict, thank you! The same with me. At first, the only color I liked was Chinchilly, but now… I think that all of the colors are pretty, not exactly unique, but pretty.
Honestly at first I wasn’t excited by this collection at all (except for chinchilly), but the more I see swatches, the more I like it. I’m wearing chinchilly today and it’s a gorgeous gorgeous color :nails:
I really like all the different layerings you did with it, even the matte ones (very surprising for me :biggrin: )
Juhuhuhuhu, jesenčki so na poti k meni. ;)
Angora Cardi :wub:
Mink Muffins je tudi v redu, samo sem mislila, da bo bolj temno rjav.
meni roza neon res ni všeč…ostali so pa vsi lepi, ampak me noben res ne prepriča, kaj pa vem
Meni so vsec… :)! Prav vsi, sploh oranzen in rjav, njami!
Neoncki jeseni mi prav pasejo.. ne maram jesenske odsotnosti barv, ker potem izpade vse depresivno..
Angora pogojno, drugi niso po mojem okusu. Še najbolj me mika Cami, a mi bo verjetno pretemen.
Oh wow! :) Obožujem činčile, zato me je prvi navdušil. Oranžen je tudi fenomenalen, pa roza on vijolični … Vsi so defitivno a must have to jesen! :wub:
Angora cardi je definitivno zmagovalec+ všeč mi je manikura z pikicami
