Essie Winter 2012 Collection




Essie Winter 2012 Collection £9.99

I have fallen completely in love with Essie this year. Rewind one year ago and I didn't have a clue - hadn't heard of Essie, now I own a few too many! This gorgeous set is part of their winter collection and is three of shades from that collection, Leading Lady

My lovely Mum bought me this set when she came in and saw me at work and I was having a "want to kill everyone" day and she knows I'm trying to be good and not buy anything at the moment. So she treated me, what a lovely Mummy I have.

I have wanted Leading Lady for aaaaages. It just looks like Christmas perfection, and yes, I did notice Christmas has gone BUT it still remains one of my favourite nail varnishes now. Its a gorgeous deep red with subtle flecks of glitter. I have two coats on here, but to be honest you probably only need about one for depth of colour. I always do 2 just in case though. It last's really well - in the photo above I'd been wearing it for around 5 days so super super lasting power!

Beyond Crazy is like a super duper glitter polish. As you can see, it is an incredibly glittery polish and doesn't need a colour underneath it. The picture above is just one coat so you can see just how dense the sparkle is. It's a silvery gold, so it will very easily go with everything.

Snap Happy is a kind of orangey red. More red than orange, but it's not like a super dupey "tramp" red (as my old manager used to call it). It's more of a subtle red. You do need a couple of coats with this (I feel you do anyway) just to make sure you get the most out of this gorgeous colour. I think this will be amazing in the summer months as well as a great Christmas colour.

Overall, loving this collection and the polishes. Leading Lady is my favourite, I think it is just a gorgeous polish and I've had so many compliments over the past few days about it, it will definitely be a repurchase when I run out (if they still do it!).

Which do you prefer?
