On File: Essie Winter 2014 Collection

Essie Holiday Collection Review - Politics of Pretty

For the past few weeks, I’ve been really dedicated to my weekly manicures. I’ll admit though, I had a little help from my local nail salon. I cringe when I trim and file my own nails so it’s easier to just enlist some help for $12. Not sure I can afford to do that every week but it’s a coveted little luxury I’m enjoying right now. Just my like seasonal clothes, I tend to get bored with my nail collection. It’s like I sift through plastic drawers of polishes and realize, I have NOTHING TO WEAR! That was the case until the new Essie Winter 2014 Collection showed up on my doorstep. From demure office-ready hues to a glamorous molten gold, this collection is my favorite to date. I promise, you’ll be set through the New Year with these six dazzling shades. I’m currently wearing Double Breasted Jacket, a passionate tourmaline ruby, which actually looks much more red on my digits than it does in the bottle. I’m saving Tuck It In My Tux, a silken ivory crème, when I’m ready to rock winter white. At first glance, I’m a little thrown off by Back in the Limo, a sheer ripe melon but somehow it works. These polishes will certainly brighten any dreary winter day.
