essie Holiday Mini Nail Color Kit Swatches + Review

When Felicia of the blog Ellie sent me the Essie Holiday Mini Nail Color Kit for the great holiday blog swap, I was beside myself with excitement. One thing I've learned since opening the package? The colors are a million times prettier on the nail than they were in the bottle {and they were plenty pretty in the bottle!}. See for yourself!

Cocktail Bling is a Blue Gray Creme. This colour though...I love shades like this because they're so versatile depending on the lighting or what you're wearing. Is it lilac? Is it gray? Is it blue? Who knows, who cares - it's stunning. Flawless formula here. Cocktail Bling is perfectly opaque in two simple swipes, and an absolute essential for your collection! This is 2 coats.

Rock At the Top is a Yellow Gold Glitter in a Clear Base. Le sigh...there's something about a little gold glitter that seriously kicks any and all manis up a notch. Here, I'm wearing Rock At the Top over Sheer Beauty from the nails inc. x alice + olivia collab. The formula here is incredible. No dab and pat needed to score an even layer of glitter - just swipe and go! This is 1 coat.

Mind Your Mittens is a Sage Green meets Blue Gray Creme with Hidden Shimmer. Similar to Cocktail Bling, but definitely not the same, Mind Your Mittens leans more towards a dusty sage green and features super hidden shimmer that is virtually indiscernible {except in the bottle}. This one pairs beautifully with chunky knits. More flawlessness here - Mind Your Mittens applies like a breeze, and truly stands the test of time {I wore it for 6 days with only minimal tipwear}. This is 2 coats.

A-List is a Classic Red Creme. I'm in with the in crowd... I totally think of that song when I say the name of this polish - it just fits the whole A-List vibe so well. You guys, this color is gorgeous! It's one of those reds that features the whole classic feel while being slightly more vampy sue to the brick undertones. This one was almost a OCW, but left a few patches behind, so I opted for two. Love this shade! This is 2 coats.

AVAILABILITY: Target for the mini set; Beauty.com for individual bottles.

PRICE: $12.99 for the quartet; or buy individual bottles separately for $8.50 each.
