[From clockwise: essie’s coat couture, spun in luxe, comfy in cashmere, all eyes on nudes, just stitched, and wrap me up cashmere matte collection]
You know when you just get that funny feeling that something is going to be through and through 100% amazing? That’s how I felt about the essie cashmere matte collection, a lovely assortment of six shades featuring a semi-matte finish in verstatile shades ranging from a mauve and blue-black to camel and pearly-plush pink. If you ask me, the matte effect is THE nail look of 2015, and you can of course duplicate the effect by using a matte top coat, however none is needed with this collection. Apply two-to-three coats after your base coat, and enjoy the instant gratification of this sophisticated finish. Each bottle retails for $8.50, available now at essie.com, fine salons, and beauty destinations nationwide.
