Essie Metallic's

Hey everyone! So it's nail polish time again! Over the past year or so I have been obsessed with nail polish. I'm not sure what it is but the look of all those cute, colourful, glass bottles standing in a row makes me very happy (Anyone else, or is that just me!?) I love metallic colours and I love Essie, so these metallic polishes were always going to be a winner for me. Even though metallic's are seen as a winter wear polish, I do like to mix my colours up and make them work for any season, so I thought I would share a few of my faves with you.

First up I have 'Shift Power' a rich, bright, mustard toned gold. I believe this was released in the Winter collection in 2008. I have a love hate relationship with this polish, I love the colour, but this can get very streaky. If you are patient enough to work around the streaks, this is the lovely gold. 

'Antique Rose' is a gorrrgeous colour, a deep copper, dusty pink, with flecks of rose gold shimmer that gives the nail a very classic look. It may be a little too mature looking for some people, but I really like that. I love this polish and think it can work all year round, it also looks lovely with a glitter polish over the top!

Lastly I have 'Loophole', a rich blue toned silver. Again, this polish can be streaky (I think it's down to the tiiiiny brush) but its workable. I love this with a silver glitter over the top for a night out!

What I love bout these three polishes is that none of them look 'flat'. The shimmer and tones give them a multi dimensional look which I love.
