So a thing happened, Essie made a few nail polishes that I actually wanted! SHOCKER lol. I'm just not easily wow-ed by Essie polishes *shrugs* But I do love me some blue shimmer! I have 2 polishes from the Essie Cashmere Matte Collection via The Beauty Clutch to share with you today!

Coat Couture is a "smoky purple creme with teal blue shimmer and a matte finish". This is my favorite of the 2. I love the contrast between the smoky purple and the bright blue-green shimmer. Hell, I'd love the color without the shimmer haha. BUT this polish fantastic with the shimmer and it really comes alive with top coat.

I did 3 coats of Coat Couture. I didn't run into any issues. I was a little worried because it looked uneven upon application, thankfully it evened out after drying. :]

Next up is Comfy in Cashmere, a "mauve-toned taupe creme with bright blue shimmer and a matte finish". Sorry this was kind of hard to photograph, that macro totally got washed out >.< I was expecting this to be a little more mauve than taupe, but it's more taupe than mauve.  Not 100% sold on this polish color against my skin yet, however it's still really pretty with that shimmer!

I did 3 coats of Comfy in Cashmere. The application/formula was identical to Coat Couture. I was again worried about this evening out, but it did even out well upon drying. No issues with dry times.

  1. Oh, these are so pretty. I love that blue shimmer and I think both look nice on you.
    Sadly this collection never arrived in my country and I barely managed to find Coat Couture on my holiday abroad. No luck in getting Spun in Luxe. :(

  2. These are both so extremely beautiful :)
    I ADORE that first one. I wish I could get my hands on these over here where I live but I doubt it... I have to order them :D
