A packed holiday social calendar and no time to sit at a nail salon means you'll want to pick up some fresh shades of polish pronto. Not to worry though: The essie winter 2018 colors have arrived, and they'll have your nails looking both sophisticated and festive at the same time. From eye-catching sparkle and saturated jewel tones to more muted hues, there's something for everyone in the new offerings from the go-to nail care brand.
The limited edition, six-shade collection is now available for purchase at Target for $8.99 each. Inspired by the Northern Lights, the family of polishes brings together the shades of the sky with the sparkle of the lights while also incorporating the colors of the arctic surroundings.
For those who tend to go darker on their nails during the winter months, opt for the Hear Me Aurora. The wintry rose color is the ideal polish for someone looking to break out of their classic red rut. Looking to go even darker? Give the Sights On Nightlights a shot. This deep shade of plum will look great against a champagne flute when you're toasting to good tidings.
Darker polish isn't for everyone, so, if you're in the market for a lighter color, the new collection has you covered there as well. Switch it up from your usual baby pink and try a shade of lilac. Pastels are no longer just for the warmer months (as this season's trends have demonstrated) and this sentiment rings true for beauty as well. The Just The Way You Arctic will be a refreshing change to the traditional blush hues, and will really pop against your metallic holiday dresses. The same goes for the Glow With The Flow, a pretty shade of shimmering light blue. If there's a time to wear a blue polish, this is it, as the blue hue gives new meaning to the term frosted tips.
An engagement polish option is even in the mix of new winter colors from essie. Shoppers who feel a diamond coming their way before the year's end should select the Polar-izing pink hue. A frosty shade of pink, its shimmer will perfectly complement the sparkle of your new ring.
Shop polish for your beauty-obsessed bestie while you're at it. You can easily up your stocking-stuffer game by tying a bow on a bottle of Million Mile Hues. The metallic gold pigment is sure to be a hit during the holiday season.
To really get professional-grade nails, add a base coat to avoid those unwanted polish chips before you apply your new winter polish. Then, once you've applied the color of your choosing, finish off your finger tips with a top coat. The Good To Go top coat from essie will extend the life of your polish and give you that high-gloss shine. Plus, its quick dry formula means no waiting around when you have places to be and parties to attend.
Forgo the expensive manicure and achieve luxe looking nails with the new winter polishes from essie. Continue on to find the color that suits your style best.
