Essie Cashmere Bathrobe

Essie Cashmere BathrobeHello, gorgeous!

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.

The official release date for this collection is September, but Cashmere Bathrobe is already available online at places like Nordstrom, Target and Dermstore.

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 🙂

  1. I’m so glad you linked to the mini set! It’s exactly the ones I wanted to try from this collection, plus free shipping and free samples! I didn’t know Nordstrom was so great!

  2. For Canadian Readers: The mini collection (and the individual full sizes) are also currently available at Nail Polish Canada, free shipping to Canada! I buy from them all the time, love the free shipping.

  3. SO gorgeous! Your swatches are always amazing! I am loving this polish. Only one slightly close in my stash is Estee Lauder Caviar. This one is my fave from the collection, with Vested Interest second fave. I was worried the formula would be similar to those silver shimmered Naughty Nautical polishes I had application trouble with. But this one flows so smoothly. thanks for giving CB the love and attention it deserves. 🙂
