While Deborah Lippmann has opted to go extra-sparkly with glitter-infused lacquers for her holiday collection, fellow big-name polish brand Essie has taken an alternative course for its winter 2011 collection. With a series of six creamy jewel-toned colors, Essie takes a break from its signature sheers and neon brights to embrace some gorgeous, statement-making glossy opaque shades. While a couple of the shades take inspiration from a rather literal holiday scheme (for example, the ruby red Size Matters and the minty sage green School of Hard Rocks), others opt to stay on-trend with chic takes on the latest must-have colors, like nude, navy, and lavender. And it’s hard to resist the coordinating jewelry-inspired names, like Cocktail Bling, Bobbing for Baubles, and Brooch the Subject. Doesn’t get much more adorable than that! Overall, I love the shades’ ultra-glossy finish, even without a topcoat, and the fact that they’re so creamy and opaque is definitely a selling point! What do you think – are you pleased with the brand’s holiday collection?
