GUEST POST: Jessica Minervini is a freelance writer and fact-checker for Canadian Living. She's an avid traveller and loves when people mistake her for a local. Jessica is a huge TV buff and adores spending her weekends on the couch watching a movie... or three. By Jessica Minervini It's quite fitting that today's giveaway is from Essie since my first introduction to their fabulous hues was in my stocking last Christmas. Before I was even able to open the bottle of polish to apply a fresh coat, I was hooked on the deep plum colour of "Sole Mate."
Since then I've added many Essie shades to my never-ending nail polish assortment, and their new winter collection is definitely on my list of must haves! The great thing about this six-pack gift set is the mix between traditional Christmas colours – such as the high-karat gold of "Beyond Cozy" and the glittering crimson of "Leading Lady" – and the bold and bright hues that have been gracing us on the runways this past season, such as the incandescent vermillion of "Snap Happy," the flagrantly luxe scarlet of "She's Pampered," the blue-blooded cobalt of "Butler Please" and the driven, gorgeous turquoise of "Where's My Chauffeur?" So whether you're adding that last-minute touch to the perfect holiday ensemble or you just need a fun and bold accessory to brighten your drab winter outfit, pick up one (or all), of these six vibrant polishes! The Essie Winter Collection is available at select salons and major retailers, or at essie.com for $10 per bottle.
