NAILS: Essie's 'Beyond Cozy'

Saturday, January 26, 2013

This was the second shade I bought in the Essie Mini Winter Collection and was actually the one I was most looking forward to... However its actually the one I like least!! In the bottle I absolutely love it, its got depth and a gold shimmer to it which is what drew me to it in the first place, however on the nails you just don't get that depth, only when the light hits it in a certain place do you actually get that lovely gold shimmer that you can see in the first picture. And to be honest the light doesn't hit it in that way very often, which just makes it like a boring old silver to me.

Maybe thats just me, I'm not a fan of silver glitter (it makes me think Barbie!) and I think I was really expecting it to have a lot more gold shimmer in it when on the nails. A bit of a disappointment.

Have you tried this?
