Essie – Winter 2012 Collection (swatches & review)

 

My initial thought when I first laid eyes on this collection, was that it seems to be quite an unconventional group of colours – especially for a “winter” theme. Then again, Essie has been taking things up a notch lately with their hues, so upon noticing the 2 sparkly shades included here, it occurred to me that each and every one of these hues seems somehow empowering – not to mention definitely intended to get your digits noticed


 

Essie’s Winter 2012 Collection is comprised of 4 crème hues, 1 jelly-like sparkler, and 1 finely compounded glitter. Broken down like that it may sound simple, but here’s the thing: the crème shades are ridiculously creamy and wearably vibrant, the jelly-ish shade has so many surprising levels to it, while crushed diamonds have nothing on the incredible brilliance of the glitter shade. All swatches are with Essie’s All In One Base Coat and No Chips Ahead Top Coat.


 

Snap Happy – a deeply saturated coral red hue, in a crème-jelly hybrid formula. The first coat looks more maraschino cherry-like albeit with amazing pigmentation, while the second coat deepens the colour (reminds of that boiled lobster red hue) and brings it almost towards neon territory. Self-levelling and with an ultra high-gloss finish, you may want to double up on the base coat as there may be some light staining. Coats applied: 2

She’s Pampered – a deeply pink based red in the same crème-jelly format as above. and with a unique translucency to it, similar to that of sea glass. A more cool-toned red, this also applied in a self-levelling way and with a glass-like glossy shine at the finish. Base coat is a must here as well, in order to avoid any staining issues – which are light at best, and not bad as far as red hues go. Coats applied: 2

Leading Lady – a deep berry/wine base colour, filled with red and fuchsia micro glitter. A slightly thick-leaning formula with an odd gelatinous-like texture, the first coat applied a touch patchy, with the glitter looking somewhat lumpy, although the 2nd coat made up for that by providing excellent coverage and applying in a surprisingly self-levelling way. There’s this gorgeous glass-flecked look to it, almost as though the glitter particles are suspended just at the surface level. The finish is semi-matte, so do not skip the top coat for an enhanced appearance as well as providing a smooth finish. Coats applied: 3 (for photo purposes only; 2 are actually more than enough)

PS: am I the only one who sees “raspberry jam” with this shade?!

Where’s my Chauffeur? – a beautiful robin’s egg blue crème shade AND a perfect clone of that iconic Tiffany blue colour, in a thinner formula than the others of this collection. The first coat seemed to apply slightly sheer and a touch streaky, but reached perfect opacity by the second coat. A truly stunning aqua hue, it also happens to be paradoxically vivid and muted at the same time – a really interesting effect. Totally self-levelling and insanely glossy at the finish, it is completely non-staining. Coats applied: 3 (very thin)

Butler Please – an awe-inspiring vivid ultra-marine blue crème shade, in a medium thick formula that bears a unique texture; there almost seems to be an “elasticity” to the application with an unexpected spring-back effect, although this doesn’t affect the flow in any way. The first coat went on a touch streaky, but there was 100% opacity reached by the second coat – although I did notice a slight lumpiness which was resolved by a 3rd thinner layer. Bordering on, but not quite neon, this finishes semi-matte so make sure to apply top coat to truly appreciate every ounce of this beauty. BONUS: no staining, with a mess-free removal. Coats applied: 3 (thin)

Beyond Cozy – a clear base hue absolutely brimming with antique silver incredibly fine glitter. I was surprised by how well it covered even at the first coat, but 2 coats provides a much denser opacity overall. There’s an “Old Hollywood” glamour vibe to this shade, like a screen siren’s lamé silver gown – but at other angles I see a more “oxidized tinsel” tone. Relatively quick-drying, the finish at the end was semi-shiny, although the glitter particles give off a brilliance of their own – a true paradox! For a perfectly smooth finish to the touch, either double up on, or apply a thicker top coat. Removal needs some elbow grease, but it seemed easier than some other glitters I’ve worn. Coats applied: 3 (thin)

Final thoughts: I’m getting tired of repeating myself, but once again Essie has hit it out of the park with this collection; from the excellent formulas, to the interesting mix of colours and finishes, there’s something here for all tastes. ‘Where’s my Chauffeur’ and ‘Butler Please’ are INSANE and should not be missed, especially if you’re a fan of blues, while ‘Leading Lady’ will have people giving your nails a double-and-triple take. As Essie herself so eloquently put it:

“… what better way to make a statement this winter, than with colour? After all, don’t we all deserve to be treated like royalty?”

… I couldn’t have said it better myself!

Essie’s Winter 2012 Collection should be dropping at your local retailers this month – take some time to check it out!

    You need to get a copyright watermark insignia to place within each photograph. Cristina Foster of Let Them Have Polish had so many folks taking credit as did my friend photog Of the racetrack thoroughbreds Ms Barbara D Livingston. They stole Barbara’s & she has been a pro since she was the 70’s! You simply must embed u one in each pic! They do not need to profit for you hard work. Love, Dora J Crow. (New here- I won Allures Essie Butler Please & saw ur swatches & wanted to see entire collections) LOVE ur work.

    • Eugenia says:

      Thank you for your feedback. I actually do place a watermark in my photos; frequently, these thieves remove it, but most of them actually leave it on. They just don’t care, and frankly, I have way too many other projects going on so I can’t afford the time to chase them all down. Hopefully I’ll be able to tackle that issue once and for all one of these days!

  2. Kenna says:

    Just a heads up: The Sunday Oregonian printed your “Essie’s Where’s My Chauffer” photo without a photo credit in an article called “Spring Shines Bright With Colorful Nails” by Kristyn Schivone. Not sure if you gave them permission or not, but they’re the biggest newspaper in Oregon.

    • Eugenia says:

      Thanks so much for looking out for me, Kenna — no, I never gave anyone permission to use my photos, that’s for sure. I tried to find the article online, but was unable to; I was able to find the author’s email, and I have just written to her. It’s maddening when ebay sellers steal my photos without credit, but when a respectable writer does so, it makes it somehow even worse. I sure hope she does the right thing, but I won’t hold my breath.

  3. Laura says:

    I just wanted to tell u I’m obsessed with ur photography in this blog. I mainly follow ur nail polish posts and the way the bottles look almost like blocks of ice and ur nails always look perfectly glassy and glowing is awesome. I don’t know if its a camera setting or a certain camera but I always look for swatches on ur blog first because I love the photos!!!

  4. Brittany says:

    This is the first collection from Essie where I like every single color! I have Most of the collection, just missing Snap Happy and Leading Lady. Which I plan on buying soon. She’s pampered is my fave in this collection

  5. Hailey says:

    Eugenia,

    I stumbled upon your blog a few months ago when a series of unfortunate events led indirectly to my developing a serious obsession with nail polish. I always hated painting my own nails because my right hand would come out looking terrible, and I do not have the patience to sit still while someone else paints them. At the beginning of the summer, I broke my right wrist and when the cast came off I decided to paint my nails for a trip to the beach with my boyfriend’s family. They turned out great! I guess in the process of learning how to brush my teeth, feed and dress myself, etc. I developed a much steadier left hand… and the rest was history! Now I’m having a love affair with nail polish, and your blog is the best! I am so impressed with your writing, photography, and manicure skills! I would like to ask you… what do you do to keep your nails healthy? I have literally been painting mine at least twice a week for the past four months or so, and they are starting to look pretty rough. I should probably not be reading your blog in the midst of my law school final exams, but what can I say? Nail polish is more interesting than civil procedure. Thank you so much for your blog – I think I speak for all your readers when I say that it is very informative and entertaining! Sorry for writing such a long post!

    • Eugenia says:

      Hailey, welcome to my blog — so glad you found me! A “series of unfortunate events”, you say? No such thing! I’m a firm believe in the “there’s a reason for everything” school of thought, and while we’re not always given to understand the nature of certain events at the time that they’re happening, it’s been my experience that everything usually comes clear at some point. Case in point: your broken wrist led you to develop a new interest & dexterity! Maybe you were meant to creak your wrist so that you can slow down; as to anything is better than studying civil procedure, I would have to agree (I have a nephew who went through all of that a couple of years ago…shudder!)

      To answer your question about my nails, I can honestly say that for the most part, it’s genetics I have to thank. I also have a major ‘thing’ for moisturizing – my hands & cuticles – quite often. Painting your nails twice a week isn’t too bad, although you should take a break for about a week every so often and go polish-free. In the meantime, get yourself a highly emollient moisturizer (I love L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Hand Cream) along with a nourishing cuticle balm (Lush’s Lemony Flutter is fabulous) and every time you remove your polish, slap those two bad boys on like crazy!

      I really appreciate all your wonderful words of praise…glad you’re enjoying this journey with me!

  6. Arletta says:

    thanks for the great review!
    I’ve got leading lady myself and no you’re not the only one seeing raspberry jam in it ;)
    xx

  7. Elizabeth says:

    Your swatches are amazing! I hope I can make mine that great some day!

    • Eugenia says:

      Awwww….thanks so much, Elizabeth! I’m happy to hear you like my swatches!
      PS: it’s all trial and error….keep at it until you’re satisfied with the results!

  8. DaniGurl says:

    Love all your swatches … Absolutely beautiful!! :)
    I do wonder how Where’s My Chauffer compares to China Glaze’s For Audrey… Since they’re both described as a Tiffany Blue color… Any thoughts ??
    <333333

    • Eugenia says:

      Thanks so much, DaniGurl! I just did a quick swatch of the two and there are several differences; ‘Where’s My Chauffeur’ has a thinner formula and is more vibrant when compared to ‘For Audrey’, which was solidly opaque almost by the 1st coat, along with being a few degrees lighter in tone and much more muted. I even compared the 2 against a Tiffany box to judge how close to the real Tiffany Blue colour they are, and to be perfectly honest, a shade somewhere in between these two would be an exact Tiffany blue replica! Hope this helps :)

  9. ettastratos says:

    If I may ask, how’s ‘Where’s My Chaffeur’ compare to Dior Saint Tropez. Unfortunetly, Saint Tropez has already sailed back to the Dior so I can’t buy that one anymore besides online and the shipping price is ridiculous. I loved Saint Tropez when I tested it, only to find the counter didn’t have a full bottle to sell me. Disappointment, to say the least..

    • Eugenia says:

      I swatched them both quickly yesterday, and here’s what I found: while they seem to be in a similar colour family, the Dior applies is 100% opaque by the 2nd coat, whereas the Essie required 3 coats to reach the same opacity and the other major difference is that the Dior is a more muted version of the shade, looking a touch more blue beside the Essie – which also seems to hold more green in its base, as well as being more vivid overall. Since you missed out on the Dior (boo! for that), I would definitely grab the Essie to fill that void — in any case, ‘Where’s My Chauffeur’ is a stunning shade all on its own and if you’re an aqua/turquoise fan, then you certainly don’t want to miss out on this one!

      • ettastratos says:

        Boo for missing, I know. X( However, it was one of those polishes I didn’t see myself with, it was so light blue! I remember so well looking at it, thinking it was gorgeous, but because I didn’t see myself with it, I put it back (I was very conservative back then)! Obviously, now I regret it, because I do see myself with it now.

        The same for Waterlily, beautiful, but light and green, so not what I liked then, However, I hunted that one that with the expertise of a lioness looking for its prey. I harassed the Dior lady about ti and she found it, so I have it right now on my nails as commemoration. Incredible that I found the Spring 2012 collection, but not the Summer one.

        I’ll check on Where’s My Chauffeur then. We have Essie here. :)

      • Eugenia says:

        There’s a reason for everything; even though you missed out on the Dior, don’t forget that in the world of beauty/makeup, there’s always something new & exciting around the corner…plus, your tastes changed from the until now – think of it as a learning experience!

        Waterlily is so beautiful and made even more unique by virtue of it being scented — love that one too! And it is weird that the Summer collection basically skipped you by. I’m glad you have access to Essie, however, as the selection is excellent AND the products pretty amazing!

        PS: where are you located? Just curious! :)

      • ettastratos says:

        Indeed it’s true, there’s always something new! So, no big deal. really. I just really enjoy the Dior brush and formula. I’m not really very good at it, especially using the left hand to paint the right, but the brush is really helpful. I have a lot of trouble with the OPI brush for example, even though that brand is how I started getting interested in nail polish. I know it’s a little counterproductive. In forums, the Dior brush is either loved or hated, and the other longer brushes are usually more liked.

        The scent I could live without, I’m not much of a fan. It only stays for two days too (at least with the top coat on). The summer collection passed me by because I wasn’t interested in coloured nail polish then. I only used really normal colours, or the very dark colour for special days (like blacks or navys or browns). But then one day I was at Sephora looking for the nth nude colour, and I started painting my nails with all sorts of crazy colours and instead of disliking it, I really loved it!

        I’m in Portugal. :)

      • Eugenia says:

        It takes practice, but seeing as how you’re only just getting into the wild & colourful world of nail polish, I’m sure you’ll become adept at painting both hands in no time! :)

        I actually like the new Dior brush as well, although I wasn’t sure at first — now I find that the cut of the bristles actually helps with the application. It’s a personal thing, you’re right about that. The OPI pro-wide brush can be an issue for anyone with small and/or narrow nail beds; one option is to turn it on its side and use it that way — less surface area will be affected and might make it easier for application. Again, it’s all trial & error.

        As to the Dior scented polish, I don’t mind it and since it’s not too overpowering, I can certainly live with it – but again, it’s all a matter of individual tastes. I’m glad you’ve discovered all the possibilities that are available to you through the use of colour — it’s a fun & great way to change up your entire look without too much commitment.

        Portugal….a country I’ve always wanted to visit! Lucky you!

        PS: I have a Portuguese Water Dog, lol!!

      • ettastratos says:

        Yes I will learn, and I’ll need too! Before it was just jelly transparents (or with a slight colour), so the flaws weren’t seen that much. When I wanted a more snazzy look when I went out, I’d get them done so the girl I went to painted them for me. Now with colourful nail polish every day everything changes.

        If you want to visit Portugal, you should in the next one or two years. We’re in recession so everything is very cheap. Especially restaurants. You won’t get hungry here.

        It seems like the water dogs became very popular after Obama was presented one! I’ve met two other girls online that also have one! I agree they are very cute!

      • Eugenia says:

        I see! Well, I’m happy to hear that you’re enthusiastic about trying new things – change is always good!

        I’ll keep your tips in mind for when I get the chance to visit Portugal…I’m also looking forward to your excellent cuisine there! :)

        As to my dog, all I can say is that I got mine easily 5 years before the US president got his! My dog just turned 8 a couple of weeks ago – plus he’s white with brown markings – not the usual Portuguese Water Dogs people see!!

  10. Karen says:

    Snap Happy and Leading Lady are so gorgeous! I have to have these! I have been waiting for Essie’s winter collection and it has met all my expectations. Thanks for such brilliant reviews and just wanted to say you have lovely nails!!! :-)

  11. These are so gorgeous! I’ve bought Leading Lady, Beyond Cozy, Butler Please and Where’s My Chauffeur and they are all so beautiful. Great reviews of all colours.

  12. Daniela says:

    Hi! I wonder what top coat do you use? The finish looks amazing. :)

  13. ella says:

    Where can I get these here in the uk??? I’ve been trying to find them but it seems impossible.

  14. emma says:

    Great reviews, I’m definetly going to buy them, but i wanted to ask where can I get them here in the u.k.?

    • Eugenia says:

      Thanks, Emma! As I’m based in Canada, I’m not really sure who supplies Essie lacquers in the UK; have you tried googling for online etailers there? If I hear of anything, I’ll be sure to pass it along!

  15. Meghan says:

    Once again, great review, thank you! You’re always so thorough in your descriptions and evaluation. I’m going to echo what others have said… I wasn’t really interested in this collection at first, but after reading your review I gave it a second thought. These colours look amazing!! :)

    I’m curious, why do you not watermark your photos? I see bloggers do it all the time. I’ve seen some of your photos on tumblr blogs, and while there tends to be a link back to you, I’m curious if that stuff bothers you.

    • Eugenia says:

      Thank you so much, Meghan – I appreciate the kind words & glad you’ll give these shades another shot! As to why I don’t watermark my photos, I’ve taken to watermarking some of the bottle/product shots I take, but first of all it’s a time-consuming process and my workload can be quite heavy at times; every minute I spend watermarking takes away from swatches and/or writing I could be doing. Secondly, I have this thing against marring the pristine-ness of a photo with a watermark – I really, really dislike that look. Lastly, my photos are stolen ALL THE TIME and sadly, I’d need to be on my computer hounding people all day long to remove my stolen photos – which in the end amounts to nothing, because these thieves (I have more choice words for these losers) will find a way around any failsafes I put up. You’d think it would kill them to link to where they go their photos, right? Nooooo….they all cowardly stand behind the excuse “if it’s out there on the internet, then it’s free for anyone to use”. That’s like me saying, “well, if you leave your front door open, then I can come in and walk out with whatever I choose”. Stupid & maddening, but there you have it! Does it bother me? YES. Is there anything I can do about it? Not unless I obtain a magic wand that can change the way people think, then…NO.

      • Meghan says:

        Hi Eugenia, thanks for your thoughts on the topic, even though I realize that it must be so frustrating to see your images taken and used without your permission. I guess I’m trying to figure out these things for myself as a new-ish blogger. But I think your decision to focus on the swatches and the writing is a good one, it really shows in your blog posts. I come here to read what you have to say about the stuff you review, and of course the great photographs! :)

      • Eugenia says:

        It was a good question and deserved an answer, so thanks for asking! Like you said, I prefer to expend my energies on more productive matters – at the end of the day, that’s what matters to me: putting out the best work I can. These thieves are lazy and just dumb, in my opinion and frankly, if they don’t care about all the work that has gone into the photos they so casually steal, then why should I waste any of my precious time on them? They’ll only find ways around any blocks I put up. Remember: what goes around, comes around. Congrats on your blog and I hope you focus on the enjoyment part of it – meeting fab readers like yourself is the best part of a blog!

  16. Wiebke says:

    What do you think, how does Where’s my chaffeur? compare to Turquoise&Caicos? Are they anywhere near in colour?

    • Eugenia says:

      I would have loved to have said that they’re close, but sadly – they’re not. ‘Where’s my Chauffeur’ is more opaque and more pigmented than ‘Turquoise & Caicos’. T&C is in a thinner, slightly more sheer formula, and looks significantly greener next to WmC – the latter which also happens to almost be the exact hue of Tiffany’s famous shade. Hope this helps!

  17. olivia says:

    This is definitely an eclectic collection! Doesn’t say winter but then again I am not one to conform. I do like the glitter ones!

  18. Ana says:

    That royal blue is beautiful!

  19. NailCouturrre says:

    What camera do you use. I need to buy one ASAP. beautiful swatches! Thank you!!

  20. I really like the ruby glittery one Big Sis! I think I need that one, yes?

  21. Danny says:

    These are all so pretty! Thanks for your lovely swatches!
    Can’t wait to see them in stores!

  22. Larie says:

    EUGENIA. I love the mirrored shots! And that BLUE. It kind of saddens me in a very ridiculous way because I already have Dior Electric Blue and St. Tropez, so I guess I don’t really need the turquoise or blue, but they’re still so pretty! And that “raspberry jam” shade is exquisite.

    • Eugenia says:

      Hahaha! To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t exactly planning on the mirror image, but when I uploaded my photos, I loved it! I never got to see Dior’s Electric Blue, so lucky you that has it – makes it easier to skip this one, especially if they’re tonally close. Isn’t the “raspberry jam” shade delicious looking? I get mesmerized just staring at the bottle, lol!

  23. Kara says:

    Gorgeous swatches again. I love all the red/pink shades in this collection.

  24. Julia says:

    Love this collection! If I was a little less advanced in my polish hobby, I would be highly tempted to spring for the whole thing. As it is, the red/pinks will be left behind, and if I’m being honest with myself “Where’s My Chauffeur” should be as well, although I don’t know if I can resist! But “Leading Lady” and “Butler Please”–unskippable! Amazingly I’m not quite sure about “Beyond Cozy”–for whatever reason it isn’t really calling to me! But perhaps when I see it in person…

    I finally got to the makeup counters yesterday and got Dior “Diorific”! Unfortunately they were out of stock at the counter, but the lovely Dior ladies ordered one to be sent to my house, without shipping charge :). I also got some new Deborah Lippmanns that I have not seen before–Cleopatra in New York, which is an AMAZING black jelly with chunky gold hex glitter, and Let’s Go Crazy, which is a purple jelly with colored glitter. Looks like they’re from the holiday collection. I almost didn’t notice them as they were on a shelf low to the ground in the Lippmann display, but the second I saw them I couldn’t pass them up! I only had two disappointments: neither of the department stores I went to had the Chanel holiday collection out, and I STILL haven’t seen the OPI Skyfall collection :(. Getting very, very antsy for it!

    • Eugenia says:

      Love your use of the word “unskippable”…we’ll need to add it to the nail polish lexicon, lol! Glad you finally got to see the Diors in person – too bad the shade wasn’t at the counter, but at least it’s being sent to you – yay!

      Some Deborah Lippmanns to sweeten the deal, huh?! Sounds good to me – have fun with them! As to the CHANEL Holiday 2012 collection, I finally picked up most of the pieces I wanted this weekend..can’t wait to start swatching & let me just say, that it’s a phenomenal collection indeed! Sure hope you come across OPI’s Skyfall Collection soon – can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it!

  25. Emma says:

    Do you understand how many pounds your are costing me? And i greatly appreciate it ;) currently awaiting Dior to receive the xmas 2012 collection (I have diva on order). I also took a trip to boots to buy Where’s my Chauffeur? They do not have this.

    Thank you so much for the anti chipping/manicure tips you provided.

    Loving your blog, slightly poorer but boosting the UK economy.
    Best regards
    Emma

    • Eugenia says:

      Hahahaha! Oh my God, Emma – you had me chuckling throughout your entire comment! To begin with, allow me to apologize for your diminishing bank balance, although in all honesty & fairness, I am but the messenger! :) I’m happy to hear that my reviews help in some way and I really appreciate your support! Hugs!
      PS: You’re a true patriot! :)

  26. Sandi says:

    Omg Butler Please looks amazing! How do you think it compares to Nails Inc Bakers Street color wise?

    • Eugenia says:

      Unfortunately, I don’t own Bakers Street to give you an accurate comparison, but from online swatches that I’ve seen, Butler Please does seem to have many similarities – but again, I’d need to physically compare them to be sure. Sorry!

  27. BMR says:

    I wonder how Butler Please compares to RBL IKB 2012. On your nails it looks lighter, but in the bottle it looks almost the same.

    • Eugenia says:

      My first thought was the same as yours, and so I pulled out my bottle to see; without swatching them, I can see some slight differences, but I think the biggest of all is the finish with the RBL being more of a jelly. Still, I’m hoping to have a few minutes to swatch them this week and will definitely post my results! Thanks for wondering, lol!

  28. I was all set to ignore this collection. WHY do you do this to me every time??? LOL (Love ya!) I think the cremes are just delicious looking and preludes a sunny vacay away while snow falls merrily on the continent. I wonder how vibrant their resort collection will be like if this is their winter offering.

    • Eugenia says:

      Hahaha! Love ya right back, Liz! I also love your idea of a vacay; being somewhere hot & steamy and getting away from the inevitable dreary winter – yeah, that sounds real good! As to Essie’s resort collection, it promises to be quite interesting! ;)

  29. lanerbell says:

    I want them all! Great swatches and great review!

  30. Montreal-Barbara says:

    As always, your reviews and the pictures are wonderful! When I saw the colours in this collection, however, my first thought was “summer” since some of the shades (especially the coral and the robin’s egg blue) are not winter-like at all. Perhaps this should have been called a resort collection, since this is perfect if you are planning a vacation in Mexico or the Caribbean.

    • Eugenia says:

      Hmmmm….I hadn’t thought of it that way, but you do have a point. Then again, all these vivid colours seem to engineer major holiday cheer as well, lol!

  31. danisha says:

    i took them all, but reds :)

  32. C says:

    Eugenia, please please stop making me lust EVERYthing you swatch…. I wasn’t planning on buying any until I saw these pictures! Lol :-) Flawless review, as always.

  33. They are gorgeous!!! I need this winter collection :D.
    Beautiful pictures as always <3

  34. barbvanth says:

    Thank you, Eugenia, for this beautiful review. I’m totally in love with Leading Lady.

  35. Maribeth says:

    I was so confused when I first saw promo pics for this “Winter” collection, but I must say that I am loving these! “Leading Lady” ( totally see raspberry jam!), “Where’s My Chauffeur?” (Um, this is to DIE for!) and “Butler Please” (wow!!!) are my favorites! Beautiful pictures <3

    • Eugenia says:

      As usual, we both picked the same favourites — must be the “crab” thing, lol! I immediately thought of you when I swatched ‘Leading Lady’ and ‘Beyond Cozy’ and I’m sure you’ll find a way to make them look even more than they already are!

  36. Marisa says:

    I need those blues in my life!! They’re gorgeous!!

  37. Jelena says:

    Thank you so much for great review as always

All comments are welcome, so don't be shy!
