“This season, I wanted to create a new set of classic, yet fun colors that are wearable on every skin tone.” – Essie Weingarten, Founder and President
YOU GO, E-Money, with your “I’m every woman” approach to nail color.
The shades in Essie’s Sweet Time of the Year Collection for Winter 2009 ($8 each) should flatter a rainbow of skin tones and appeal to a range of colorful personalities.
Which ones suit you?
- Classic dames: If pearls, little black dresses and patent leather pumps speak to your soul, then try two rich coats of Lollipop, a creamy, candy-apple red.
- Trendy types: Do you like life on the edge? Take a bite out of creamy Mint Candy Apple. Go for three layers with a base coat to avoid streaks.
- Subtly sassy: A whisper of sheer, creamy pink’s just *so* quintessentially Essie. Wear Rock Candy when you’re in the mood for a dash of color. Try two coats for blinding shine with a hint of pink.
Do you like your colors buffet-style instead (YES!)? If so, consider the Sweet Time of the Year Winter Collection Mini Set ($17).
Each one combines three sample-size Winter 2009 shades with a mini-bottle of Essie Three Way Glaze, an all-in-one base, strengthener and top coat.
Is mint green the new black?
I wouldn’t be surprised to see more pastel green polishes pop up over the next few months. Remember Chanel Jade? My spider sense detects a new colour du jour…
What say you? Do you likey what Essie’s been up to?
Somebody, stop me before I play Jay-Z’s Empire of the State again. I’m hooked.
It’s his latest ode to New York.
I’ve had it on repeat for … a while. Maybe it’s the West Coast girl in me, but I feel a little guilty for loving it so much.
