When I saw Essie’s Winter line, I was like… “Huh? How is that Winter nail polish?”. Instead of the colors we see traditionally this time of year – reds, greens, blues and sometimes even purple, Essie’s Winter 2014 line includes shades of coral, poppy pink, white and a shimmery muted gold.
I love Essie. They have a great formula, beautiful colors and great seasonal sets for me to covet. But their 2014 Winter Line? Seems a little strange to me personally. Never the less, I saw it swatched over at Fab Fatale and saw 2 colors I knew I needed to check out.

Isn’t that a fun combo? The red is called Jump in my jumpsuit and it’s succulent red with a playful pink undertone. The accent nail is called Jiggle Hi Jiggle Lo and it’s a gold, fully micro-glitter polish that is so muted… it’s almost silver.
I know I am going to have fun with these. Both are 1-coaters. I was really surprised about the red. I’m so accustomed to streaky red polish that requires 2, if not 3 coats for a full coverage. But once again, Essie delivers a great formula and high pigmentation. Even the micro-glitter went on easy and smoothly in one coat!
Isn’t that pretty? I’m thinking some nail art for the holidays is definitely a necessity!
The big thing for me is that they both stood up pretty well at my job. Like I’ve mentioned in previous nail polish posts, longevity of wear isn’t super important to me because I work with watches, jewelry, tools and chemicals all day. But I have to say, it was kind of nice getting away with not polishing my nails for a few days!
