Essie Fall 2012 Collection – Mirror Metallics


Now Available: Essie Mirror Metallics

Step into a pristine and polished world of reflective metallics that will change your perception of nail color forever! Strike it rich with foolproof formulations that deliver reflection, sheen and a quantum leap forward in silvery chromes and incandescent golds. Metals apply like molten silk for seamless fluidity and a salon look – effortlessly.

“I was obsessed,” says Essie Weingarten, Chief Creative Officer. “The appearance of beautiful foils on the runway ignited a year-long search to realize that kind of overall, even reflectivity in a paintable polish.” Aluminum pearl coated in silver was Essie’s ticket for high-shine, helping her create this off-the-catwalk collection. Highly reflective, these metallics are the latest and greatest in the essie roster: “I am thrilled with my metallics!” Weingarten continues, “No one will metal around with you while wearing these babies!”

Amazing, high-impact effects add mesmerizing novelty to this luxurious palette of precious metals, but the shades were formulated with an eye on fashion and longevity. More than just the colors of the moment, they are carefully crafted classics of a mercurial nature – suitable for lunching ladies and newly launched rock stars alike. This is highshine nail fashion at its chicest!

This season, adorn yourself in a spectrum of metals from a to zinc and chart a course for futuristic fantasy in five fantabulous hues. Visionary color makes rocketing to the forefront of fashion a cinch, so don’t get left behind: select the mineral that casts you in a gorgeous light or mix them up for a French Manicure gilded in molten metal. No need to agonize over which to invest in – in this case a bright penny and rich nickel are worth their weight in gold!

  • No Place Like Chrome Richly oxidized nickel
  • Blue Rhapsody Heavy metal air force blue
  • Nothing Else Metals Ultramodern lilac alloy
  • Penny Talk Statement-making incandescent copper
  • Good as Gold Pure, rock-solid classic

Availability: Now at salons and beauty destinations worldwide, $8.00 each

Beautiful Beginnings with Essie

Beautiful Beginnings with Essie

What was the first Essie product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: The first Essie product I ever tried was their Spring 2008 collection! The older I get, the more I really enjoy the brand for its overall color range. They do some really fantastic creams in particular!

Share your first time experiences with Essie in the comments! 🙂

Bobbi Brown Slate Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Slate Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “medium grey.” It’s a softened gray-tinged taupe brown with a matte finish. MAC Omega is lighter, warmer. theBalm Celebrational is darker and has a satiny sheen. Bare Escentuals Vow is a few shades darekr and has a strong red undertone. MAC Twilight Falls is frosted and darker. MAC EarthlyM is a little browner and has a shimmery finish. Inglot #360 is a bit darker and less gray, but it was the closest I could think of.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Santa Fe Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Santa Fe Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “an aerial view of Santa Fe; the baked earth tones of ocher with shimmering, glistening ubiquitous dotted greens.” It’s a slightly subdued, terracotta-tinged medium orange with light-medium orange-gold shimmer. Though the description mentions dotted greens, there’s nothing that really represents that concept in the polish itself (the brand’s descriptions are often more inspirational than they are one-for-one descriptions, at least with this launch). I don’t have anything in my stash that seems to look this–it’s definitely orange, but it’s not really bright, and there’s no red in it. Zoya Myrta is darker and red-orange. Nails Inc. Porchester Place is more orange, brighter. Illamasqua gamma comes the closest, but it’s brighter–reads more Halloween orange than desert orange. I’d love for you to suggest any potential dupes!
