New Essie colours make me smile.

By Becca Shrimpton

For fall 2009, Essie has created a great polish collection that consists of killer neons and neutrals called Cuddle With Color that I can’t get enough of. Such pretty colours to pair with fall’s layered fashions have got me craving cool weather constantly. The colours include: Angora Cardi, a dark dusty rose; Mink Muffs, a deep creamy taupe; Bright Tights, an electric citrus orange, Chinchilly, a gorgeous granite grey; Pink Parka, a super hot pink; and Midnight Cami, a shimmering midnight blue. I’ve tried out all the shades and have a soft spot for each one of them. What’s even better, though, is that each of these polishes can be given a silky matte finish with Essie’s Matte About You Matte Finisher topcoat. We all are pretty aware by now that matte nails are in, and now you don’t have to worry about running out and buying all new polish in matte shades; with this finisher all your current colours can be matte in seconds. It’s genius. These gorgeous colours with matte finishes are becoming the major obsession of beauty bloggers and editors alike; this fall you’ve just got to get your own hands on them.
