Essie – Sew Psyched NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 20 - 2010

I bought two polishes from the new Autumn/Fall Essie collection.  Sew Psyched and Merino Cool.  Merino Cool was a bit of a no-brainer for my dusty mauve/grey loving fingers… but Sew Psyched took a little leap of faith.

I was hoping that the grey tones in this would soften the green to something special.

And they do!

A two coater with a sprinkling of silver shimmer.  The shimmer is barely noticeable… but does lift the colour a little in direct sunlight.  I personally don’t think it benefits much from it’s inclusion and quite like my dusty colours to look flat anyway.

No problems with application and normal wear time make this a hit for me.

In UK mainstream outlets, Essie Sew Psyched is priced at around £8.50 and available online from BeautyBay

  1. Absolutely beautiful! I love greens like this. Unfortunately as Essie is an animal testing line I’m going to have to hunt down a dupe because it is lovely. Thanks for the post!

  2. Didn’t know Essie tested on animals. Well that’s the end of my love affair with the line. Sad. Lovely Charlotte – would you do a post at some point featuring all the brands (or major ones) that do test on animals, and those that don’t? I know there’s been some confusion over L’Oreal – I think they test ingredients on animals but not the finished products? – but I have no idea where to go to get this kind of information, and would love to know.

    Sew Psyched is a great colour though – looks like Khaki Vert a bit x

  3. Love it, just bloody love it!

    Ooh, this looks so nice. I didn’t realize it had a tiny bit of shimmer in it. Now I must have it! 🙂

  6. Wow! Wow! This is a color I would never have thought of getting but you might make me change my mind!

    Yukky greens are an obsession of mine. So why don’t I have any? Conundrum. This is fab.

  8. Estelle says:

    oh weird, this is the polish I have on today! I really like it, was expecting a bit more of the shimmer though, but a lovely colour nonetheless! My NOTD post will be coming soon, ha ha!x

  9. Jan says:

    That is a very lovely colour, sort of slreeen or grilver? I like it very much, the arty side of my would say eau de nil maybe. Thanks for the pics Jan

    Sorry folks but I just don’t get all the sludgey colours that are around at the moment. It’s an awful colour.

    Before you denounce me for trolling let me add that I enjoy reading this site and love the Beehive lipstick that I bought because of an earlier post.

    Oh, PRETTY! I love nail polish, but somehow greens aren’t usually my thing. This one looks very beautiful, though – too bad I can’t spend any more money on polish this month or I’ll starve. Which would be bad. Right? Right.

    PS: Your blog is wonderful!

  12. baby in a corner says:

    I don’t really get this colour! I saw lovely new nail polishes by isa dora today!

  13. Shortiee31 says:

    Hmm I immediately thought of Chanel Khaki Vert (I think that’s the one)…
    I just can’t do green’ish nails *shudders*

  14. Constance says:

    Would love to see a comparison of Merino cool with China Glaze’s Who’s wearing what! Thanks

  15. kelliegonzo says:

    very pretty on you c! i la la love this shade, so happy essie did a RBL dupe!

  16. I don’t think I would wear something like that, but I like it on you! 🙂

  17. GeekFaerie says:

    How do you get your nails to stay so long and strong? They look amazing!

    • I’m really lucky to have such naturally strong nails, I don’t do anything to maintain them other than rub a bit of LUSH Cuticle Cream or Lanolips into the cuticles a couple of times a week. I think it’s genetic! x

    I love green nail polishes and this one is gorgeous!

  19. Mayra Cavel says:

    Getting stronger nails is easy if you eat a lot of calcium rich foods. Also, pantothenic acid or vitamin B5 helps a lot in producing stronger nails. .:”‘:

    Hope This Helps!
