It's another busy few weeks for me. I have an exam this week in Edinburgh and one next week in Manchester. These are practical exams so less intense than normal but still not very fun! I was also travelling for work last week so I'm looking forward to calmer times in November!
Luckily I have had time to do my nails though!
When I saw Essie's new Shearling Darling winter collection, I knew I had to have it. Rich burgandies and navy, really wintery and also would fill a gap in my collection. Luckily for me, my four favourite shades were available in a mini collection so I ordered it on ebay.
The two that I was most drawn to were 'Toggle to the Top' and 'Sable Collar'.

Sable Collar reminds me a little of Chanel's Particuliere. It has a beautiful sheen that gives a purple hue but is mainly a metallis-esque minky brown colour.
|The purple really shows with the flash on!|
I'm looking forward to trying out the other two colours, the slightly plainer ones - Shearling Darling and Mind Your Mittens. There seems to have been some confusion over Mind Your Mittens and Parka Perfect as to which was which (a black-blue vs a powder blue) but my Mind Your Mittens is the black blue colour. (I think potentially an early press release on some other blogs gave different info)
