fall look: metallics & glitter

What are your thoughts on metallic or glittery nails for this season? Essie has a lot of great shades out! Do you think they’re a good everyday look or more suitable for a special wintry occasion?

Here are some of my favorites:

GOOD AS GOLD – 2012 Collection 

good as gold


I love this gold color – it is metallic, but still creamy and smooth. I think gold is a great choice during the holidays and it can really add a unique touch to your outfit.

PENNY TALK – 2012 Collection

penny talk


This is a perfect, shimmery bronze shade. It reminds me of the autumn leaves but it also has an edgy look to it.


peak of chic


Besides its fabulous name, Peak of Chic is a frosty color that looks lovely over silver or white. It is lovely for snowy winters and glitzy enough for a holiday party.

BELUGARIA – 2013 Collection



This is a wild, fun color that requires a couple of shades of top coat to manage the texture of the polish! I love the uniqueness of the color but I definitely would reserve this flashy shade for a night out!
