♥ MANI MONDAY ♥ Favourite Winter Colours

Essie 4 fav winter

Hi Everyone

Hope you all had a great weekend. I am hating this cold Cape Town winter, the only thing i do enjoy is the Winter Collections from all the cosmetics brands. Essie is no exception and I’ve included one of the new colours from the 2015 “Virgin Snow” winter range.


Essie - Jump In My Jumpsuit.jpgJump In My Jumpsuit  is from the “Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low” 2014 Winter collection. Its a deep berry creme red with a slight blue undertone. It has a great formula, needing only 2 thin coats for full opacity.

The other 5 colours in the collection are:  Tuck It In My Tux, Back In The Limo, Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low, Bump Up The Pumps and Double Breasted Jacket.


Essie - Bahama Mama.jpg

Bahama Mama is from the “Its Better In The Bahama’s” 2007 Summer collection. Its a rich plum colour  and one of my favourites. It has a great formula, actually only needing one generous coat for full opacity.

The other 5 colours in the collection are:  Atlantis Pearl, The Cove Copper, Island Hopping, Jumpin’ Junkanoo, Lyford Lilac


Essie - Aruba Blue.jpg

Aruba Blue is a frosty jewel-toned sapphire blue and the colour anyone can pull off. All it needs is one coat for full opacity.



Essie - Haute Tub.jpg

Haute Tub  is from the “Virgin Snow” 2015 Winter collection and was just released in South Africa. I currently have this colour on my nails at the moment. Its a jet black with a dark grey undertone and purple shimmers.
