Because I have essie Belugaria PTSD when essie ventures into different polish finishes I get a little terrified. None the less I was excited about the 2015 Cashmere collection simply because it’s something different from essie.
Coat Couture was the one polish from this collection I knew I had to have. Essie describes Coat Couture as a sultry satin griege beneath deep purple shimmer. Um, yes.
While I agree with essie on the griege part of that description I have to disagree on the description of the shimmer.
Coat Couture is a satin finish griege with aqua shimmer. I have to look real hard to see any of the purple shimmer but I suppose it is there. Either way, Coat Couture is straight up gorgeous and entirely unique in my collection.
The formula is fantastic and easy to work with as it doesn’t dry too quickly. I used two coats in my swatches.
I did include a swatch with a top coat (I used Barielle No Chip Speed Dry) but I much prefer this polish without a top coat. Coat Couture doesn’t need a top coat for the shimmer to really come alive; especially in the sun! Plus, a top coat takes away the gorgeous finish.
And on a total side note, thank you essie for labeling the bottle ‘cashmere matte’.
The Cashmere collection can be found at Ulta.
