Essie Winter 2013 Collection

Group 2 essie WinterThis year, you can forget about wearing those blacks, deep purples, and deep blues. The winter collections do have strong colours, but they’re a step away from the deep dark shades that we’ve seen so much of in previous years. Essie’s Winter 2013 collection is a mix of classic bordeaux shades, blues, and purples.

Shearling Darling is a dark vampy red.

Parka perfect is a dark teal grey colour.  It’s super pretty especially if you prefer dark shades for fall.

Here is Sable Collar.  It really is a cocoa plum colour – think of it as the colour of shimmering hot chocolate.  So pretty and versatile, much nicer than a typical brown colour.

Check out my swatch of Mind Your Mittens. Essie’s description of it being a double diamond black teal doesn’t really make sense to me. As you can see, this is more of a faded teal. It has a hint of shimmer but really looks like a cream.

Warm & Toasty Turtleneck is a nice mauve pink.  It’s unexpected for winter but it kind of works.

Toggle To the Top looks like a pair of jelly ruby red slippers. It’s a dark red in a jelly finish with red glitter in it.
