Recently I decided to try out Essie's Mind Your Mittens from the Winter 2013 collection. I bought this in a mini pack, see my post on the other colours in it here.
This colour is almost black in most lights but is actually a very dark navy. It's so lovely to apply. Some nails were perfect in one coat but two sorted them all out. The colour is deep and glossy with a great shine to it.
I decided to add an accent nail. I had thought my Barry M glitter had good enough coverage to be applied on its own. Four coats later, I had what you see above. Not the best idea.
Almost a week later, it has chipped, but not as much as some polishes do. I definitely really like this colour, perfect for dark wintery days.
