Today I have the new Essie Collection for winter 2014 ‘Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low.
The colors are not your "regular" winter colors. It does give a twist to your "traditional" winter colors. They are indeed very beautiful colors, and add more color to those gray and cold days related to winter.
Lets’ get to the swatches and cannot wait for your thoughts!
First up is ‘back in the limo’ a sheer bright ripe-melon as described by Essie. Is a jelly polish and it took four thin coats for this opacity. Formula was Ok, a bit (just a bit) streaky for me.
Second up is ‘bump up the pumps’ as described by essie a raucous coral mauve. It is a warm color and I have to say it has a perfect coverage and the formula is amazing! Two thin coats plus top coat.
Third is ‘tuck it in my tux’ a silken ivory, I really like this one is elegant and the formula was great. For this opacity I did three thin coats and top coat. This one reminds me of ‘marshmallow’ but better.
I love a one coater! This is ‘double breasted jacket’ a tourmaline ruby and it was a dream to apply.
The name sake of this collection ‘jiggle hi jiggle low’ is a shimmering bold molten gold, I love this one for the holidays. For this photo I did two coats but you can get away with just one, given that you don’t apply a thin coat. No top coat on this one.
Last but never least is ‘jump in my jumpsuit’ a jubilant juicy red. I really liked this color and the formula was excellent as well. It may sound funny but this is like one coat and a half. I did one “normal coat” and then a very thin one. I really loved it.
Overall, I like the colors but I am still trying to relate with winter...not impressed.
What do you think?
PS: I bought this myself.
Have a lovely day!
