Essie Cocktail bling

Time for a creme again, this time from Essies holiday collection Cocktail bling. And it is the polish giving name to the collection.

Cocktail bling is a greyish light blue creme. In some light it looks grey but if I put it against something grey it looks more blue. And sometimes I see a tiny bit of lilac in there. I think this is very beautiful, it is sophisticated without being boring. And needed for the times when I get tired of shimmers, metallics and glitters.

The formula was very smooth and easy to work with. This kind of shades can sometimes be streaky, but not this one. I needed two coats for full opacity.

  4. My very favorite Essie color! Bought it some time ago on ebay after testing it in the drug store where they did only have a tester available which they refused to sell to me. I love that the color looks so different depending on the light.
