Festive nails Christmas 2013 … Essie Winter 2013 collection. Shearling Darling


Essie’s Shearling Darling is a gorgeous rich, deep burgandy wine colour which for me is a sophisticated, work appropriate take on the festive nail. This is great if you are going straight from work to your office party and don’t feel that glitter or intricately drawn Christmas puddings or reindeer heads are suitable!

The polish itself is easy to apply and goes on really thick and shiny in just two coats. I find that some Essie polishes are easily chipped but I have worn this for a couple of days and have had no problems with it at all. Colour wise it is a little unimaginative, I feel I have many similar colours but if you are looking for a dark red or burgundy shade this holiday season this is a great one.

I got my Shearling Darling as part of an Essie gift set which would make a great little gift for someone’s stocking this Christmas. You get 3 fantastic Essie polishes in new festive shades for just £12.99. I got my set from Boots. The set has something for the whole of the winter season with Toggle to the Top a  great glittery Christmas party shade and Parka Perfect a lovely muted grey blue for the new year when you are sick of all the glitz and glamour and crave something a little more subdued.

      • Great blog! I don’t really think you need any advice, just keep at it and be yourself there are so many beauty blogs out there often looking at the same products so try to have a unique voice. Best of luck :)

    • It’s great I’m thinking ‘toggle to the top’ may be my Christmas Day polish this year and I love ‘parka perfect’ although I haven’t tried it out yet.

  1. They are lovely! I wanted to get them but I recently bought the OPI San Francisco minis and I think I am covered for the season! I have nominated you to do the Sunshine Blogger award but please don’t feel pressured into doing it! You can see more info on my blog :)
