essie Haute Tub

essie Haute Tub The Daily VarnishThis is the polish I was most excited about from the Winter 2015 essie Virgin Snow collection. It looked stunning in the bottle. And on the nail it is dark and sparkly…just how I like it!

I love essie’s description of this polish:

turn up the fashion heat and take the plunge in indulgent jet black with amethyst fire.

My description definitely won’t live up to that! The base is a jet back and the microglitter that runs through the polish shifts from purple to a goldish yellow.

Unlike some polishes I’ve tried like this (I’m looking at you Sally Hansen Loves Me Not) you can actually see the glitter shift on the nail. It is absolutely lovely.

However, the glitter is definitely subtle and is only noticeable when it hits the light just right. Haute Tub is particularly stunning in the sun.

The formula is fantastic; I used just two coats in my swatches.

There are swatches under the jump including a photo I took in the sun!

The Virgin Snow collection is available at Ulta. There is a Virgin Snow mini set that does include Haute Tub that is also available at Ulta.
