Essie Go With The Flowy nail polish is one of six colors from Essie’s winter collection. This snowy grey has a slight sparkle which adds some festive dimension to an otherwise pale polish.

I have to admit, I thought this was going to be a white nail polish when I was looking at it in the bottle. It was when I began applying the first coat of nail polish I realized this was not your average winter white! Go With The Flowy by Essie is a grey-white with subtle sparkle, which is anything but white!

This is a fabulous winter color for nail polish. I love the neutral tone of the color, plus the understated sparkle which adds dimension to the polish; making it an un-grey hue, if you catch my drift. 😉

Essie Go With The Flowy nail polish is an easy color to wear this winter season. It plays well with any color palette, and can easily transition from late winter, into early spring 2017. After all, shades of white and grey polish are going to be hotter than hot this upcoming spring season, why not jump on the trend now! It is a great way to brighten a cold, grey winter day! Love!

I tested out Essie Go With The Flowy nail polish with one base coat, and two coats of colors. The second coat evens out the polish, allowing it to dry streak-free. As with other Essie nail polishes, Go With The Flowy did not need a top coat since it is sturdy. I was able to stay chip-free until my nails grew out and I needed to change the polish. Love that!

If you are looking for a workhorse neutral nail polish which is unexpected, and can carry you into early spring, Essie Go With The Flowy is the nail polish color for you! You can find it online here.

Essie Getting Groovy is part of Essie’s winter nail polish collection. This beautiful, sparkling gold color is ideal for  brightening up a dreary winter day, or for celebrating during the holiday season. Love it!

The golden hue of Getting Groovy by Essie is a festive, sparkling hue. The polish itself is foil-like; it doesn’t streak at all, which is a huge plus! It applies evenly, with proper saturation in two coats. I tested out Essie Getting Groovy nail polish with one base coat, and two coats of color; no top coat. It lasted a full week before my nails grew and I needed to change it. This is a great nail polish!

Metallic nail polishes are a huge trend right now, and well into 2017. This makes Getting Groovy by Essie a fabulous nail polish to invest in. The golden hue acts like a neutral, making it easy to wear with any color palette. Since it is a sparkling polish, it is also perfect for celebrating the holidays, and ringing in the new year! Love!

The Chanel spring 2017 nail polish collection is here! This year Chanel has taken an edgy yet classic approach to nail polish. The spring 2017 nail polish collection includes a pale, pinkish-beige color named “Beige Beige,” a clear, pearly white hue named “Blanc White,” and an avant-garde top coat with a black tinge named “Black Metamorphosis.”

Blanc White, and Beige Beige, are both part of the Longwear nail colour collection, while Black Metamorphosis is a sheer, color-tinged top coat. Here they are!

Chanel Beige Beige nail polish spring 2017

Chanel Beige Beige nail polish for spring 2017 is my favorite color from the collection. This is a sweet, pinkish-beige hue which is easy to wear daily. It is also a classic, spring color which captures the vibe of the season.

I used one base coat, and two coats of color with Beige Beige by Chanel. It is a cream polish, and with the second coat, did not show any streaks. Very pretty color!

Chanel Blanc White nail polish spring 2017

Chanel Blanc White nail polish is a soft, sheer, pearly white hue which is a great neutral for the spring season. Although I am wearing Blanc White by Chanel on my hands at the moment, when sandal weather comes around, I plan to wear this color on my toes and go darker on my fingers.

I used one base coat, and two coats of color-no streaks! If you are looking for a clean looking color which is classic and easy to wear this spring, Blanc White is your hue!

Chanel Black Metamorphosis Top Coat nail polish spring 2017

There is always at least one color in Chanel’s seasonal nail polish collections which is new and exciting. Black Metamorphosis top coat is that color. It can take a sweet polish such as Beige Beige, or an understated hue such as Blanc White, and transform them into something avant-garde.

Black Metamorphosis top coat by Chanel is shown in this photo with three coats over Beige Beige. Topping Beige Beige off with Black Metamorphosis gave it a slightly pinkish undertone, causing the sheer black hue to take on a brownish-black vibe,

Did you catch that I used three coats? Ah yes, this top coat will streak like crazy if you are not careful! Also, it does not apply evenly, so the streaks are extremely pronounced with fewer coats. It is up to you how you want to wear Chanel Black Metamorphosis top coat. You can wear one coat, which shows off the underneath color the most, and leaves a heavily streaky coat on top, or you can tone the streaks down with two coats.

I prefer to see more of the top coat, then the color underneath, so I applied a third coat. Streaks drive me crazy, so I had to keep applying it until I felt it was as non-streaky as possible; without compromising the effect of allowing the underneath color to show through just a little bit. 😉

The pinkish-brownish-charcoalish-blackish result of three coats of Black Metamorphosis over Beige Beige turned out to be a color I really love for spring. It is a little edgy, a little bit different, and a new way of looking at creating color on my nails. Love that!

The spring 2017 nail polish collection by Chanel is a cross between classic and sweet, and edgy and modern. Love! You can find the Chanel spring 2017 nail polish collection online here and online here. It is limited edition, as always, so the popular colors will sell fast. If you like one or more of these colors, snap them up now while you can!
