Nail Talk: Essie’s Collection

The changing of seasons calls for a polish revamp. Just like sweaters need to be rotated, so does polish. It is so easy to grab the same color over and over. I wanted to share a few favorites from Essie’s Collection.

The first, Bikini So Teeny is an adorable cornflower blue. I saw this color all over the runway this season. Designers from Elie Saab who incorporated it into beaded dresses, to Ralph Lauren who did several suit separates. This color is everywhere! It is a bright baby blue, which can seem more of a spring color, however, when paired with greys and jewel tones it translates to an edgy winter color. I wore this color with a Rails button down and paired it with grey pants and the Fleece Funnel Jacket by Heather. I finally broke out of my comfort zone of pinks and embraced the blue. I feared that this polish would take several coats due to the light color. However, two coats did it. The first application gave a light blue coat with small sparkles. On the second coat, the color was much darker and the sparkles were very subtle.

The next, Penny talk is a shimmering copper metallic. I love the idea of incorporating metallics into an ensemble. The color is a fresh, sophisticated alternative to chunky sparkle polishes. My favorite thing about this color is only one coat is needed! Great, for last minute touch ups before heading out the door. I find the copper color plays well with not only neutrals but with navy, emerald, and wine.
