Look over here! This way!! Look at me!!!
Essie’s six-piece Winter 2012 collection hands nails a highly pigmented loudspeaker with a funky mix of bold blues, royal reds and sparkling glitters.
THERE’S NOTHING QUIET ABOUT THIS LAUNCH! The bright, intensely pigmented colors are anything but shy.
Even though I feel like we’ve seen many of these colors before, I like the way they all look together as a collection here.
Where’s My Chauffeur (the bright turquoise) and Beyond Crazy (the shimmery golden glitter) are the standouts for me. I’m definitely gonna play matchmaker and introduce the two of them on my nails this week…
Essie didn’t reinvent the wheel for some of these shades, but they were quite generous with pigment when they doled it out here for the holidays.
PRICE: $8 each
AVAILABILITY: Available now at salons, beauty stores and online at ulta.com
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+ (I love the colors and high level of pigment, even if some of the shades aren’t entirely groundbreaking)
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
