Essie Toggle to the Top Nail Lacquer
Essie Winter 2013 Collection

Essie Toggle to the Top Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “sparkling crushed garnet red.” It has a deepened, burgundy red base with ruby red micro-glitter/sparkles. To really smooth out this polish, I highly recommend a thicker, gel-like top coat so that you don’t feel the glitter. It was opaque in two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Metal Dahlia (P, $10.00) is metallic, no glitter.MAC Vintage Vamp (P, $16.00) has no glitter. Le Metier de Beaute Anatolia (LE, $10.00) is lighter. China Glaze Sugar Plums (LE, $8.00) is the closest, but it is a bit more plum. Deborah Lippmann Single Ladies (LE, $19.00) lacks the glitter. See comparison swatches.

Shearling Darling Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich, plush ebony red.” It’s a deep, dark maroon with warm, red undertones and a cream finish. It was opaque in two coats, though the consistency was a little thin. MAC Vintage Vamp (P, $16.00) is similar. MAC Underfire (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Chanel Accessoire (P, $27.00) is very similar. China Glaze Velvet Bow (LE, $8.00) is also similar–slightly cooler-toned. Deborah Lippmann Single Ladies (LE, $19.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Warm & Toasty Turtleneck Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “wisteria pink angora.” It’s a pale, pink-tinged lavender with a cream finish. It was fully opaque after two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it applied evenly and smoothly–no streaking. Essie Full Steam Ahead (P, $8.00) is cooler-toned, lighter. Cult Nails Love at First Sight (P, $12.00) is brighter. Essie Nice is Nice (LE, $8.00) is sheerer, lighter. Essie Bangle Jangle (LE, $8.00) is a bit lighter and grayer. See comparison swatches.
