When Essie does dark colors right they are usually amazing. Cashmere Bathrobe is amazing.
For Fall 2013, Essie released their For The Twill of It collection. While the namesake polish For The Twill of It seems to be getting most of the attention (it’s a dupe for OPI Peace & Love & OPI which I already have…), I was immediately intrigued by Cashmere Bathrobe. It looks gorgeous in the bottle. Plus, I love gray polish and there are few gray polishes out there that have shimmer but aren’t metallic.
Essie describes Cashmere Bathrobe as a “true flannel gray.” I have no idea what that means. When I think about flannel I immediately time travel to the 90’s and I’m dressing like Angela Chase.
Cashmere Bathrobe is a deep gray with slight blue undertones packed with glass fleck glitter. The color is gorgeous and the formula is even better. I used just two coats in my swatches.
The gray is just light enough where it rarely, if ever, starts to look black. The glitter of course helps with this. But it’s going to be a lovely polish for fall as it pairs well dark colors like burgundy and emerald.
This is a lovely polish. I just hope it’s not completely overshadowed! Essie’s Fall 2013 collection has alot to offer.
There are, of course, swatches below the jump. Make sure to check out the MACRO shots. The shimmer is gorgeous.
PS: If you’re in to mini sets, Cashmere Bathrobe is included in the miniset for this collection 🙂
