We have been waiting patiently for Essie's winter collection to finally make it to shelves, and it's finally here! Just in time for our holiday shopping and mani needs, Essie has debuted its winter collection of six rich polishes sure to get you excited about snowy days spent in with a warm cup of cocoa in hand. This season, we're seeing some icy pastels, off-set by some crisp, bold reds, with a new platinum and deep black to stand out among the rest. And in Essie's signature cheeky style, all the names have a seasonal influence – this time around, a ski holiday – to make your polish all the more posh.
So what have we got here, Essie?
Apres-chic is this season's go-to platinum perfect for a time of year that rings with silver bells and is adorned by crystalline snow. The perfect polish to pop on nails for that holiday party, or when you're feeling particularly luxe, this color is like the ring you've always wanted. And we can't help but love our shimmery metallic hues.
It wouldn't be an Essie color without a soft pink that has a frisky name. Unlike your typical ballet slipper, Peak Show is creamier and more of a light, powdery pink - definitely great for laid back days or when you're opting to wear bright colors or busy patterns.
This aptly named polish is the exact light, periwinkle blue you think of when you dream of all things winter. Reminiscent of one of our summer favorites, Bikini so Teeny, Virgin Snow is a much lighter, understated blue we can rock during the icier months.
Keeping it sassy with the names and the colors, this shade is a bold scarlet for when those dreary gray days have got you down. We're definitely busting this color out around Valentine's Day.
Shall We Chalet?
During the holidays, we're always looking for a nice, deep red to wear as we celebrate. This is totally it. Like all of the shiny reds you'll be seeing in ornaments and ribbons, this red is the quintessential Christmas crimson with a seductive edge.
We needed a Wicked that would get us through the winter, and this shade is it. A jet black shade with a violet shimmer, when we're feeling fiery, this will be our polish. Gotta embrace those dark colors while you can!
