Essie – Beyond & Cozy

So I told myself no more Essie nail polish until I film my collection video.. but then something wonderfully terrible happened! I stumbled upon the Winter 2012 mini’s in my local Boots store and no self respecting polish lover could resist that purchase. I was originally debating over 2 of the shades in full size and this was the winner before I saw that I could have all 3 so I thought I’d start the swatches here. Beyond & Cozy. It’s a pale silver/gold micro-fine glitter suspended in a clear varnish. It dries pretty quickly I’m assuming because it’s made more of solid particles than polish and until I applied my super thick glossy top coat it was like sandpaper to touch. Unfortunately I think that will be the case upon removal as well but the effect is quite magical and very in keeping with the season so in my opinion.. totally worth it!

Full sized bottles available for £7.99 and the mini trio is just £9.99 from Boots stores nationwide

Have you managed to pick up anything from the Winter collection? I think Leading Lady will be next up.

    I couldn’t resist getting Leading Lady because it is just so Christmasy! This one looks lovely too, i’m trying to tell myself I don’t need anymore nail polish but it isn’t working! haha

    Oooh this is pretty – I don’t think I’ve seen Essie mini’s in my local Boots, will have to keep an eye out. After all I’ve got soooo many polishes I’d never finish a full size bottle!

    That is gorgeous! Might treat myself, I did see it last time I went to Boots but I picked up Leading Lady instead, which is beautiful btw!
