Even though I haven’t worn a baby-pink polish in what feels like forever, Essie’s Just Stitched might just be my favourite out of the entire Cashmere Matte collection! It’s one of those colours that is just so pretty and so flattering on just about anyone, I couldn’t wait to try the polish out!
Described as a ‘warm pearly-plush pink’ it’s a really happy looking, and beautiful shade to wear, and I love that when the light hits it, the polish shimmers with an iridescence which is really just stunning. I l absolutely love it as a fun, neutral shade, and I think it will be super pretty when spring rolls around!
Essie Just Stitched is priced at £7.95 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
I have to admit, that once we hit the colder temperatures, I don’t tend to reach for light coloured polishes. But when I saw Essie’s stunning Wrap Me Up, I just couldn’t wait to try it on! The shade is the most beautiful cool-toned ivory, and it really does make a lovely change from my usual inky choices!
For such a light polish, the formula really is something special! Thick enough to be almost opaque in a single coat, I tend to opt for two to create a beautifully rich finish. Like all of the Essie Cashmere Matte Collection, Wrap Me Up dries to a stunning satin-matte finish. The subtle sheen the polish has feels so unusual, and it’s such a chic way to wear nude-toned nails!

For me, autumn is definitely the season of the neutral polish. I know that as soon as we reach around November, I dive pretty much exclusively into my collection of super dark polishes, so the possibility of wearing something a little lighter feels super appealing right now!
One of Essie’s Cashmere Matte Collection that I’ve been reaching for rather regularly is the stunning Comfy in Cashmere. It’s a super cool toned mauve-y taupe which has been shot through with a subtle blue micro shimmer. It’s this little hit of glitter which really sets the shade apart from others in my collection. The formula of the polish is absolutely dreamy – two coats gave an opaque and smooth application, and like all of the matte polishes, Comfy in Cashmere dried in just a few minutes.

I thought I would continue with my Essie reviews, as the collection is just so stunning! Spun in Luxe might just be the star polish from the line-up! A perfectly black matte polish which is shot through with a sprinkling of metallic navy shimmer – this for me, is just the perfect pedicure shade.
On the nail, the formula applies smoothly, and is opaque in a single coat. Since the polish is matte, I tend to favour two coats, just to deepen the colour and make it feel a little richer. For a dark polish, Spun in Luxe dries incredibly quickly, and I just love how the light picks up on the shimmer – it gives the polish a really modern edge!
