Essie Holiday 2011

Essie’s all-creme holiday collection is off the beaten path, but I approve. I get red-and-green fatigue this time of year, and I think the collection has something different-yet-seasonal for everyone.

Bangle Jangle is a dreamy lavender. Cocktail Bling is a light blue-grey. Brooch the Subject is Kate-Middleton-nude-shoe peach bisque. Bobbing for Baubles is a dark, greyed/muted navy that I think is the color of the season. I personally can’t get enough of it, and in the last few days of wearing it on my fingers, it has attracted non-stop compliments. There are plenty of options in this color family on counters right now. I think Bobbing for Baubles is slightly lighter, and a little more blue than Dior Perfecto, NARS Galion, or Zoya Cynthia.

School of Hard Rocks is a muted, mossy teal green. Size Matters is a raspberry-cranberry red.

    Oh I just love this all-cream holiday collection! not only are they look so sophisticated but also way easier to remove (removing glitter polishes sometimes really drive me nuts!!+_+) this lavender Bangle Jangle is so elegant and pretty! love it love it! Cocktail Bling’s soft blue is also soooo pretty! and Brooth the Subject is such a gorgeous pink-nude shade >_< so so beautiful!!!
