I'm positive that I've already written on here about my love of Essie polishes. I think they're great because I find the polishes to be long lasting with a top coat, and Essie always seems to come out with the cutest and trendiest colors. Upon examining my growing collection of Essie polishes, I realized that almost every Essie polish I own is in a cool color like blue or turquoise as opposed to warmer colors like red or pink.
When I saw the winter collection, I decided that there wasn't a polish in it I wouldn't like to own. Of course I had to limit myself and bought just three of my favorite colors:
Mind Your Mittens: "A deep, double diamond black teal."
Warm and Toasty Turtleneck: "Wisteria pink angora."
Parka Perfect: "Serenely shimmering alpine gray."
These cool colors capture the essence of winter!
Onto other cool colored Essie polishes that are more appropriate for Spring and Summer...
Turquoise and Caicos: "A flirty and pretty tropical aqua."
Where's My Chauffeur: "An opulent turquoise."
Naughty Nautical: "Marine blue green shimmer."
I know that several of these colors have a very similar look to them, which is why I wanted to post pictures of the polishes side-by-side so you are able to see the differences. FYI, Turquoise and Caicos seemed way runnier than Where's My Chauffeur, and I did have to add extra coats of that one, but both colors are still gorgeous!

Do you prefer cooler colors or warmer ones? Which shade is your favorite?
