Essie Merino Cool NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 4 - 2010

I’m so late with this, I mean who cares now right?  We’re all onto the Christmas releases!

I care though!  I cracked this bottle open for my recent jolly up to London and although it didn’t turn as many heads as Essie’s Sew Psyched did… I felt all sophisticated a grown up in this shade!

Please excuse the photo, have finally managed to borrow a point & shoot that doesn’t hate my computer… but, it’s not fabulously colour-accurate.  In real life, Merino Cool is a touch more mauve.

3 coater and a touch slow drying.  I had a duvet imprint on my thumb all weekend despite a quick dry top coat and reasonable length of time before throwing myself in my pit after painting!

This photo has also prompted a nail chop!  Whilst I do love my nails being long… the above is a touch too long for practicality!  The number of times I’ve caught them on something and literally HELD MY BREATH as I glance down expecting to see that I’ve torn one right down to the cuticle… that’s when I know that they’re just not manageable anymore!

Anyway… I haven’t forgotten that I promised a comparison of my mauvey toned greige shades.  I will do one v. soon, I’ve just had another camera knock-back this morning from a company that I wouldn’t recommend to my worst enemy (SimplyElectronics).

Thanks for sticking with me, I can see why proper ‘togs have camera backups now!  Alas, for me… I’m just a dabbler and Mr. L would infact kill me if I even contemplated the word ‘backup’ when talking about cameras.

Crappy Monday everyone! xx

    Everytime I see Merino Cool I always think of Lady Gaga – Simply because I read ONCE she wore it to the VMA’s haha 🙂

    I love it, was so pleased when my Fall 2010 set arrived – so many gorgeous colours, not enough nails to wear them all at once though haha! xx

  3. Ooh, I love this sort of shade. I still haven’t seen this collection anywhere so I’m hoping it arrives soon and it would be nice and convenient if it happened right around a sale. =)

    This is a great colour – I always find that Essie is a tad on the long-drying shade (if that makes sense). Sorry to hear that the camera saga is draaaaaaggggggiiiinnnnngggg on. Jan x

    Love the colour, but understand the duvet print – that’s always happening to me – I think I’ve left enough time, but some polish just takes forever to dry! Hope you get a camera sorted out soon, I’m getting very fed up with my rubbish point and shoot, that is completely un-intuitive! x

    I want to buy this because I love the colour and I have a pet Merino sheep. I think he would be a fan of the ‘Merino Cool’ name 😉

    Oh my god this is SO gorgeous! I’ve never been that into Essie but this just blows my mind, I need it!!!! I don’t even understand why I’m this excited about a greige but I just am! If only they weren’t €14 a bottle where I live. 🙁

    Good luck with the camera issues, I really hope it will be sorted out soon!

    I’ve never commented but I really love your blog, keep up the amazing work! 🙂
