How is it almost Christmas? Ahh! I’m all set shopping wise (which is why my blog has been a little quiet lately) but now I can start posting a bit more! Right now I have a fun little post for you! The Essie Holiday 2016 Mini Nail Polish Kit Review & Giveaway!


This is a 4 piece mini set of polish, and all 4 shades are from previous collections so they might look familiar to you. The Essie team was also nice enough to offer 3 additional Essie Holiday 2016 mini nail polish kits for 3 of my readers to win (thank you Essie!)

So let’s jump in and look at these photos, and then we’ll go over the rules for the giveaway

Essie – Apres Chic


Essie Apres Chic was previously in the Winter 2015 Sprinkled With Luxeffect collection. This is a platinum metallic shade that applied in 2 coats. I did not use top coat for these photos, but like a lot of metallics, brush strokes are visible with application.



Essie – No More Film


Essie No More Film is actually one I bought several years ago (from the Resort Collection Spring/Summer 2012) and absolutely loved it.

No More Film is a deep indigo creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.



Essie – Go Ginza


Essie Go Ginza is a soft pastel pinkish lavender creme. I used 3 coats for these photos and found the formula to be a tad thick for my tastes, but still fairly easy to apply.

Go Ginza is from the Essie Madison Ave-Hue Spring 2013 collection originally.



Essie – Altitude Attitude


Essie Altitude Attitude is a vibrant almost coral like red creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Like Apres Chic, this shade was in the Winter 2015 Sprinkled With Luxeffects collection.



Essie Holiday 2016 Mini Nail Polish Kit Review & Giveaway Overview


This set has a nice mix of colors in it that can pretty much be worn all year. I definitely gravitate towards Altitude Attitude, but No More Film is also a favorite of mine from Essie.

Price: $12.99
