There’s nothing I love more than testing out a great new nail polish. I tend to know where my comfort zone is in terms of nail polish colors, but I will give just about anything one chance. Sometimes I find something that I just don’t end up caring for and other times it’s a match made in heaven. I love when it ends up being something that I totally didn’t expect to love.
The Cashmere Matte collection from Essie blew my mind in terms of nail polish. I have seen the matte trend in all the fashion magazines and on Pinterest, but I could never wrap my mind around the idea of a matte finish. To me, it seemed like it would be the feeling of a chalkboard (goosebumps…) and nothing seemed appealing about that. Essie graciously let me try the collection and I have to say, I was shocked at how much I loved the finish. Instead of the chalky feel, it was incredibly smooth and more pearly than a normal “shiny” finish.
The polish goes on like normal, but dries with the finish and even a little faster/better than traditional ones. I’m wearing “Wrap Me Up” below and thought it was like a mix between “Ballet Slippers’ and “Marshmallow.” The matte just noticeable enough where it feels like you’re wearing something different, but not so noticeable that the feel is distracting.
