Essie Winter 2014 Collection: Review and Swatches
Essie's Winter 2014 Collection is here and today I have swatches of three of the polishes to share with you. To see some close-ups and my thoughts on the formulation, click.......
Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Lo:
This is a gorgeous pale metallic gold. Similar to a paler version of Zoya's Siv, the base is metallic with slightly larger flecks of gold sprinkled throughout. The formulation is wonderful, opaque in two coats and easy to apply. The drying time is very quick.

Tuck It In My Tux:
This is a sheer white crelly (cream/jelly hybrid). Formulation-wise, it's very sheer and quite runny. I can't really imagine wearing this on its own but perhaps it can be used to make a jelly-sandwich. The drying time is kind of slow as well.

Jump In My Jump Suit:
Last but not least is a classic red cream. In the bottle, this one almost looked like it was a pinkish red but on the nails it's a true red. The formulation is very pigmented but not quite a one coater so I used two in the swatches below. The polish was still slightly wet when I took the photos but it dries down quite shiny.

There are a total of six shades in this collection, review for the other three can be found here.
Overall:
My favorite is definitely Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Lo as the other two colors aren't very unique. There are three more polishes in this collection: a peachy coral, a pale melon, and a coralish red. Which of these three is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for dropping by!

Availability:
The Winter 2014 Collection will be available starting November.
