Essie Winter 2007 Preview

OK so I know I teased you with a lot of new goodies coming down the track but things have been absolutely insane. Does anyone want to join me in my fight to take down Time Warner Cable. They are evil, evil people and have made my life hell for the past few weeks. Things are still not resolved but I will battle on.

I did have time to snag some bottle pics of the new Essie collection for Winter 2007/2008. Styled to go with the glam styles and metallic accents seen on the runways for fall, this collection is filled with glitzy reds, gunmetal and pewter and, of course, a signature nude cream.

from l-to-r:
nude attitude – antique nude cream
steel-ing the scene – medium brushed pewter
over the top – dark metallic gray

who’s she red – four-alarm creamy crimson
wrapped in rubies – rich gold-dusted burgundy
showstopper – shimmery deep berry

I’ve only had a chance to swatch a few and so far Over The Top is a big winner as is Showstopper. I promise to have swatch pics up soon.

    Oooh!! so lemming over the Top! Hoping its not a dupe of others I already have! Can’t wait to see your swatches! thx!

    I’ve already ordered several from an ebay e-tailer (the release date for salons isn’t until Nov. 1). I skipped Over the Top because I thought it might be too similar to Hyde in the dark, but now I’m not sure. Can’t wait to see the swatches! We have Comcast cable over this way, and they’re equally evil. We had a horrible time getting everything up and running when we bought our house. Cable companies suck!

    Hillary – I can tell you for sure that Over The Top is not like Hyde In The Dark. I pulled out all my charcoal grays last night and the closest match I found is China Glaze Black Diamond from the Ski Collection. They are pretty dead on, as you’ll see in my review post.

    Over the Top looks beauteous! I am wearing Sole Mate today and am in love with it but, of course, always looking for the next must-have shade.
    PS: I’m with Hillary… Comcast sucks.

    Oh my! Essie hit the nail on the head with this one! How beautimous!

    i picked up the four pack over the weekend, and wrapped in rubies is my fav. try it over a layer of plain black polish – it looks awesome!! I think I want to try Over the Top too, but I am waiting for your pics.

    Hey, Cincy…I was wondering if you could tell me where I could find a matte finish topcoat. Some of the promo shots for the OPI Russian collection showed a non-glossy finish and it looked really cool. Any ideas?

    YAY can’t wait! On my monitor Over The Toplooks blue..and I am curious if Showstopper is similar to anything else, like Burma Ruby

    Over the Top looks fabulouz! Basically, I’m a reds girl but honestly, I have ALWAYS loved gunmetal anything since I was about 12, I think…something must’ve hit me really hard but I LOVE it and I’m wearing Carolyn NY’s “Subway Surfing”. 2 coats is pretty but I’d like it to be a little smokier, so I’ll be trying Essie’s OTT. I think’ll I’ll add one more coat today & see what the deal is. Can’t wait for the review! Cable services can be HELLACIOUS. I moved this summer, into an old house and our wiring was a mess too, but our problem was with the phone line. The cable and DLS connections are fine. Verizon FIOS is pretty cool. Since you moved during a Mercury Retrograde transit, this kind of stuff is to be expected though…It goes direct Nov. 1 so Hang in there, girl!!!!
