Essie – Toggle To The Top

Essie - Toggle To The Top (Bottles) We’ve just begun flirting with Fall, but already winter collections have me longing for Christmas lights and snow days.

Shearling Darling, Essie’s Winter 2013 collection, is delightful and a nice escape from the typical overload of reds, golds, and the occasional green glitter. Don’t get me wrong, I love my reds, golds, and occasional green glitters – it’s just a really refreshing collection.

We’ve already fallen in love with Parka Perfect and Mind Your Mittens, and today I get to show you my favorite polish from the collection: Toggle to the Top.

Toggle to the Top is gorgeous. It’s a great fit  for Fall and it’s going to be lovely for the holiday season. Essie describes it as a sparkling garnet red – I can accept that. However, they leave out the coolest part: the beautiful garnet ruby glitter is set in a blackened jelly base – it’s like a jelly sandwich in a bottle. It gets better… it’s opaque in two coats. Bam. We have a winner!

The entire Essie Winter collection is available on Ulta’s website and in drugstores!

Enjoy your day! More pictures below!

  1. this is lovely- reminds me of polishes that are usually available at much higher price points. What a great collection! So far I have picked up 2 of them, Parka Perfect and Sable Collar, but your swatches may tempt me to go back for a couple more.

  2. Oh, now this is really nice. I haven’t said this in a while, but I have to see this one in person. The pictures remind me of the flakies I like to wear on black (or dark) jelly…one way or another this is truly fetching. A holiday polish that doesn’t HAVE to be a holiday polish. Yay!
