Essie Winter 2011 Cocktail Bling Collection

Having heard Essie's new Winter collection was called Cocktail Bling I was so super excited. I thought for sure there would be some sexy glitter in the shades, but alas, I was wrong. The collection is described as " inspired by the precious stones and metals that we love to accessorize ourselves with at holiday cocktail parties-think Rubies, Sapphires and Emeralds. "

 Although there was no glitter, I did actually like the collection because all the colors are very wearable. (Not everyone loves glitter as much as I do.) There are six shades in the collection, I was sent four to test out. Here are the shades, click on pic to enlarge:

Essie-Cocktail Bling- Essie describes it as a Pale Blue Chalcedony Cabochon. To simplify, I say it looks like a pretty bluish gray.

Essie School of Hard Knocks-Essie calls it a midnight Malachite. To me, it's a gorgeous teal.

Essie Bangle Jangle-Lavender Amethyst-I was shocked a lavender was included in the winter collection.

Essie Size Matters-(what a funny name) a Blazing Hot Ruby Red-You girls know how much I love red polishes. 

 These shades were the usual great Essie quality,  (you could get away with one coat with a few of these). They are very wearable for everyday (even the green!). But honestly if you're going to name a collection "Cocktail Bling" give me some Bling!  I wanted glitter in this collection!

What are your thoughts on this collection?

Do you love it?

I am an Essie fanatic. If i go to the drug store or target first thing i do is go look for Essies new colors. I buy one 9 out of 10 times. I do agree, the name does not match the theme. Although i love them all, im getting a bit tired of the lavenders. That Red is HOT and the blue/green is great for holiday time! Cant wait paint my nails in these colors!!!!

It seems to have a good collection , but i don't like the shades as much. Mostly i like the light color shades. Do you have any pink color shade.
