Essie’s Winter colllection 2012 comes in six flamboyant shades to finish off the year with a little pop of color and sparkle. The collection is targeted at the modern woman. She’s totally driven and desiring the best of everything. When she makes an entrance she commands attention and with these new lacquers she’s guaranteed to get it. With these shades, you’ll be the life of the party.

This is the very first nail post on my blog, and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. Last week, I received the new Essie’s Winter colllection 2012 and had to do be the guinea and show you how amazing these colors are. I’m going to a sunny destination for the Christmas holidays and let me tell you that these Essie babies are already considered packed in my suitcase.

To begin my review, I tried on “Leading Lady” a glittery crimson-red over my eternal lover : Wicked, and I was pleasantly surprise to see how pretty it turned out. This is the perfect combination for the woman who likes to sparkle but likes to stay in the shadows.

From left to right:

Beyond Cosy, Where’s my Chauffeur?, Butler Please, Snap Happy, She’s Pampered, Leading Lady.

Butler please, Beyond Cosy, Where’s my Chauffeur?

Just like in fashion, it’s all about layering. Think about layering Leading Lady (as seen before) with a warm tone and Beyond Cosy with a cooler tone or with Butler Please or Where’s my Chauffeur?

Snap Happy, Leading Lady, She’s Pampered. 

Don’t they look nice all together? This collection is a real success.

Here are a few tryouts on some white paper. From top to bottom: Leading Lady, Where’s my Chauffeur?, Snap Happy, Butler Please, Beyond Cosy and She’s Pampered.

And now on my fingers (except the Beyond Cosy, I only have five fingers sorry)

Which ones do you like the most ? I have a huge crush on Where’s my Chauffeur, Butler Please and She’s Pampered (as seen on my thumb).

By the way, my ring is by Machalka jewelry by the way (Omaya ring).

You know my love for all cobalt-related stuff, so obviously this one is my ultimate favorite! It looks even brighter in real life. Amazing!

She’s Pampered is a beautiful bright red! I’m in love with it… Will wear it on my hands and feet!
