NOTD: Essie Coat Couture

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

We are continuing on with the next 2 shades from the Essie Cashmere Matte 2015 collection today.

I know your eyes are drawn to Coat Couture, described as a greige with purple/ green shimmers.

I actually looked up greige to learn that it's a beige with added black (and taupe is a red-based beige with added green). So ultimately, Coat Couture is related to the second colour I wore here - All Eyes on Nudes, a neutral leaning toward nude pink.

If it's up to me, I'll say Coat Couture is a charcoal grey with a purple tint and strong green shimmers :) Easy to understand why it rivals my other favorite shade in the collection - Comfy in Cashmere.

I thought a bottle shot of All Eyes on Nudes is necessary as it looks more pink (hence a little nicer) on the nails than in the bottle.

Still, it is pretty much my skin tone colour and gives me "mannequin hands". I will not wear a full mani with it alone. On the bright side, it is great for negative-space nail art or as an opaque neutral base when needed.

Important to note: Wear time on these two shades is the same with the first two I linked above.

Another note: Target Canada :( Just heart breaking!
