I have neither worn, nor posted an Essie nail polish for quite some time, so when I noticed the photo of Braziliant in my files I pulled it out. The colour is orange with hints of coral, and contains glassflecks.
Shown below is two coats.
Beyond Cozy is a real Christmas colour, mostly consisting of pale golden glitter. This had actually been released for the 2012 season. Moreover, I took the photos in March this year and discovered them today.
Two coats shown below.
This has been in my drafts for more than two years. 😯 No idea why it has taken me so long to post this, since Dive Bar is actually such a beautiful colour! This is an iridescent dark green with hints of teal and purple, as well as shimmer, really pretty for this time of the year.
Although these photos were taken in June 2012 ❗ , I am sure I used to coats back then. 😉
Here’s another neutral shade, Not Just a Pretty Face (moreover, this is one of my oldest drafts, saved in April 2012 😯 ). It’s a nude pink.
So, finally, I publish these pics. Two coats.
Browsing my older swatches. This is from 2012, Navigate Her, a pale apple green.
Two coats …
… and you may recognise that it matches the colour of our sofa. That’s why I like Navigate Her (but I like greens in general).
Trophy Wife is a metallic teal and petrol shade.
Again, old swatches … I used two coats. 🙂
Happy St Patrick’s Day! 🙂 Regarding this occasion, I was browsing my drafts, and this is the oldest unpublished (so far) green I found: Pretty Edgy. Here’s the mini version.
I’ve never tried this as my actual mani, just swatched it, admitting that I prefer Mojito Madness (which would be great for St Patrick’s Day too). Two coats shown below, and maybe I should give Pretty Edgy a real try.
Guess when I took these pictures … it’s been almost two years ago, May 2012. 😯
This is Cute As A Button; initially, I planned to post Super Bossa Nova (since this is the shade I’m wearing right now), but then realised that I had already done so in May. Somehow I ended up with Cute As A Button, probably best described as pink with a tiny bit of coral.
It’s a great summer shade, I really like it, also for its brightness. Shown below is two coats, and photos were taken in June 2012 [sic!]. 🙄
This has been the signature shade of Essie’s Holiday Collection of last year, Leading Lady. It’s a berry red with a jelly base containing glitter particles of different sizes.
Two coats. Leading Lady actually reminds me of the varnish I’m wearing right now, China Glaze Ruby Pumps (although the latter is more red-based and has smaller glitter bits.)
Smooth Sailing is a periwinkle blue containing loads of glassflecks.
Two coats. 🙂
Here’s a closeup view.
