Hallo there!

Essie’s got a cute new collection of three polishes for winter 2009 that I’ve got for ya.

These are all new colors, and though you might not immediately think of them as “winter” colors, they really fit right in with the season in in my eyes.

The formula on these is pretty great, as Essie’s tend to be. One of them was a wee bit on the thick side, but didn’t cause me any troubles. More on that later. Peep ’em out!

Essie Rock Candy
Rock Candy

Rock Candy is a super sheer pink. This is REALLY sheer, it almost looks like just a top coat on my nails. Great if you just want something clean, and shiny looking. This was two coats.

Essie Lolipop

Lollipop is a vibrant cherry red creme. I love this color on me, it’s on the cool side so it works with my skin tone. It’s bright, cheery, and reminds me of Christmas. This was two coats.

Essie Mint Candy Apple
Mint Candy Apple

Mint Candy Apple is a cool blue-based mint green creme. Gorgeous. This is everything that MAC’s Peppermint Patti wished it had been. This was the one that was a little thick, but it wound up being fine. This was three coats.

You can find these on Essie’s site here, and they are $8.00 each.

Whaddya think?
