Essie Mind Your Mittens Nail Lacquer
Essie Mind Your Mittens Nail Lacquer

Essie Mind Your Mittens Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep, double diamond black teal.” It’s a cool-toned, muted, blackened teal with a cream finish. It had opaque color coverage in two coats. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it applied evenly without streaking or bubbling. Essie’s formula typically wears a week on me with minor tip wear but no chipping. NARS Superstar (LE, $19.00) is bluer, lighter. MAC Deep Sea (LE, $16.00) is brighter. Cult Nails Awakening (LE, $12.00) is a bit lighter. Essie School of Hard Rocks (LE, $8.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Parka Perfect Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “serenely shimmering alpine gray.” It’s more like a muted, dusty sea foam green with very fine white shimmer. The consistency was on the thicker side, and though opaque after two coats, it was streaky and looked thicker in places (didn’t level at all). L’Oreal Now You Sea Me (P) is brighter, darker. Zoya Wednesday (P, $8.00) is brighter. MAC Hyperion (LE, $16.00) is lighter, no shimmer. China Glaze Sea Spray (LE, $8.00) is very similar. Zoya Bevin (P, $8.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Sable Collar Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “luxurious pearlescent cocoa plum.” It’s a cool-toned, plummy brown with lighter, warmer plum micro-shimmer running through it. It was fully opaque in two coats, and it applied evenly and smoothly. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin. There were very, very minor visible brush strokes–most of the time, I could not detect them. Guerlain Sulfurous (LE, $23.00) is much darker. Urban Decay Barlust (LE) is less plum. Le Metier de Beaute Urban Dweller (LE, $10.00) is darker and has larger shimmer (but it’s the closest of the three). See comparison swatches.

    Sable Collar is my kind of color, but I’m afraid if I get it, I will find that I have quite a few like it in my collection . Or as you bloggers would say, it is highly dupable! Hopefully I can try it at the salon first
    Glad they included some more classic colors along with the overdone, trendy greens!

    “khloe had a lam lam?” from the kardashian
    collection. i have’nt seen that color
    in a while in my stash but it reminds me of it.
    I like all 3! :)

    Oh I really like Sable Collar!! I don’t have anything like it and I don’t wear much brown nail polish, but this I really like!

  16. Sable Collar is cute, but I’m still on the fence as to whether or not I actually need it haha.

  17. Mind Your Mittens looks like Chanel’s Blue Rebel – that’s tonight’s mani sorted!

  18. Chelsea

    I’m wearing Zoya Cynthia today, and it looks like a dead-on dupe for Mind Your Mittens. But since Zoya and Essie are pretty much the same price point, I guess that’s not that exciting!
