Essie hit it out of the park again with their Winter 2015 collection. I love that Essie always includes pale pastels for cool weather. Yes, we love our vampy shades, but I find a pale lavender mani elegantly unexpected for winter wear. Seriously, the pale Virgin Snow is one of my favourite colours in rotation right now. It works with all skin tones and whatever you’re wearing. Who would have thought lavender was a neutral! Anything goes if you wear it with confidence! All of the shades below are two coats of Essie on a base of Essie Millionails and a top coat of Essie Gel Setter. Gel Setter is proving to be The Best Top Coat I own, extending the wear of my manicures and making sure my nails are always glossy.
