Essie Winter 2014 Collection Swatches

Hello everyone! I have the Essie Winter 2014 Collection to show you today from HB Beauty Bar - I've got 5 out of the 6 winter shades for you guys! This collection is a wintry mix of pink cremes with a gorgeous champagne gold foil as well. (PS: notice anything different about my blog?!)

One thing I love about Essie collections is that they are always so cohesive - don't these colors look so beautiful together? Most of them were practically opaque in one coat, and the formulas were fabulous! Let's take a look at them individually:

Let's start with my absolute favorite polish in the collection, Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low, a beautiful champagne gold foil that's actually packed with gold flecks. I absolutely love shades like this, especially in the winter - this particular shade feels perfect for a New Year's manicure! It was almost opaque in one coat - shown above is two easy coats with top coat.

Jump in My Jumpsuit is a beautiful berry creme that's almost opaque in just one coat! I think this is a classic shade for winter, especially around the holidays. This color reminds me of the fall shade Dress to Kilt. Holding them side by side, this new shade definitely has a more berry tone. Shown above is two easy coats with top coat.

Double Breasted Jacket is a cool toned medium pink creme. Another gorgeous color! Although it does just seem like a regular pink, I actually don't have any colors like this in my collection, so I really like it. This is another shade that was almost opaque in one coat, but shown above is two coats with top coat.

Bump Up the Pumps is a gorgeous coral pink creme. This color is just so pretty! It feels very classic of Essie to have a shade like this, and I think it's a great go-to color year round. I know I keep repeating myself, but this shade was almost opaque in one coat too! With short nails, any of the above polishes could probably be applied in one coat. Shown above is two easy coats with top coat.

And finally we have Tuck it in My Tux, a sheer creamy white crelly. A plain color, but I just can't get enough of delicate colors like these - it's perfect for a special occasion or formal affair. Shown above is two easy coats with top coat.

There is one other polish in this collection that I don't have, Back in the Limo, which is a sheer light coral pink creme. Overall, I think this collection is really nice - must haves include Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low and Double Breasted Jacket.

The whole collection is available from HB Beauty Bar for $7.50 USD per bottle. Don't forget to use the discount code POLISHCHALLENGE at checkout for 15% off your entire order! (PS: shipping is free for orders over $25 USD!)

  1. Gorgeous collection!

  2. Jiggle High, Jiggle Low reminds me of Tom Ford and MAC lacquers that came out a couple years ago. Nice to see an inexpensive alternative.

  3. This looks like a Valentine's Day collection rather than holiday. I love all of the colors a lot especially Bump up the Pumps!

  4. Loving your new blog layout! Great colors these are from Essie too.

  5. I loveee Tuck in my Tux on you!!

  6. Somehow Tuck it in My Tux appeals to me most - something about the clean look just sparks my interest! The golden foil is stunning as well.
