Essie Winter Collection

Lollipop, Rock Candy, Mint Candy Apple, Clear Top Coat

Essie never lets us down, and their new winter collection is no exception. Every color is beautiful (swatches below). If you can't decide which color to get, I recommend doing what I did, go for the little gift set, which can be found at Ulta. You get all 3 colors and a top coat for $17.00. What a Steal!!

Mint Candy Apple
1 shade of the hottest color this fall/winter. This color truly delivers and is stunning on the nails. I can't tell you how many compliments I get when I have it on my nails!

Rock Candy
A typical "Essie" color. Sheer Pink. This does have more color than most of their sheer pink shades. Its so girly by itself and adds great shine. While it is super pretty by itself, I would recommend using it the next time you get a french manicure. It is slightly "darker" than the average pink used for a french, but with an opaque white on top would be beautiful!

Red, no better way to say it. Its flat, opaque, gorgeous and perfect for the holiday season!

Overall, there is not a bad color in this collection. I usually stay away from mini collections or sets because 9 times out of 10 I only like 1 or 2 colors in the kit. None of these colors disappoint. Mint Candy Apple is by FAR my absolute favorite. I like it even better than MAC's Peppermint Patti. Its a lighter "green" where as Peppermint Patti has more "blue" undertones. If you missed out on Chanel Jade shoot for Mint Candy Apple, they are slightly different but give off that same beautiful shade of green. Yummy!

Disclaimer: This kit was purchased at my own expense.
