Essie Carry On

This is perhaps not the most exciting nail polish at first glance, but it's a definite contender for my favourite of this winter. For the last couple of years, 'barely black' shades have been where it's at trend-wise - think OPI We'll Always Have Paris, Lincoln Park After Dark, etc. I love how dark this is without being a flat black - the hint of purple really lifts it and makes it a lot more interesting.

This baby bottle came into my posession when we were sent the Essie Fall 2011 collection courtesy of  Cloud 10 Beauty, and I've been loving it ever since. The pictures here really don't do it justice - it's a lot smoother-looking in person, as the formula is exellent and really easy to work with.

What do you think of vampy, dark shades like this? What's your favourite winter polish?


  1. That's a gorgeous colour, lovely and warm! I think some dark colours can look really cold and harsh, and even though I do love some of them, it's nice to come across a lovely warm toned one, this reminds me of hot chocolate, yum :)

  2. I wasn't a fan of how this one looked in the bottle, but I'm loving the look on the nail! It comes across way darker (and not as purple-ly) on your nails.

    I have Essie's Midnight Cami on at the moment - I have a feeling this one and Essie's Size Matters are going to be my 2 favorites this winter. :)
