Step into a pristine and polished world of reflective metallics that will change your perception of nail color forever! Strike it rich with foolproof formulations that deliver reflection, sheen and a quantum leap forward in silvery chromes and incandescent golds. Metals apply like molten silk for seamless fluidity and a salon look – effortlessly.
“I was obsessed,” says Essie Weingarten, Chief Creative Officer. “The appearance of beautiful foils on the runway ignited a year-long search to realize that kind of overall, even reflectivity in a paintable polish.” Aluminum pearl coated in silver was Essie’s ticket for high-shine, helping her create this off-the-catwalk collection. Highly reflective, these metallics are the latest and greatest in the essie roster: “I am thrilled with my metallics!” Weingarten continues, “No one will metal around with you while wearing these babies!”
Amazing, high-impact effects add mesmerizing novelty to this luxurious palette of precious metals, but the shades were formulated with an eye on fashion and longevity. More than just the colors of the moment, they are carefully crafted classics of a mercurial nature – suitable for lunching ladies and newly launched rock stars alike. This is highshine nail fashion at its chicest!
This season, adorn yourself in a spectrum of metals from a to zinc and chart a course for futuristic fantasy in five fantabulous hues. Visionary color makes rocketing to the forefront of fashion a cinch, so don’t get left behind: select the mineral that casts you in a gorgeous light or mix them up for a French Manicure gilded in molten metal. No need to agonize over which to invest in – in this case a bright penny and rich nickel are worth their weight in gold!
Sequins! Velvet! Satin! Tweed! This season, the catwalks were abundant with rich texture! We’ve translated this to nails through the infusion of glitter particles and metallic and holographic fnishes. The colour tones speak to “earthiness” but are not specifically earth tones – think rust, shimmering greens, and silver. This collection feels future-forward but not futuristic. This season is all about using texture to add interest and depth to your look.

A full-coverage liquid lipstick delivering up to 14 hours of continuous wear, vivid color payoff, and a velvet matte finish. A proprietary blend of advanced polymers delivers intense, vibrant color for up to 14 hours, as well as a sophisticated velvet matte finish. Creates a breathable film of intense pigment that instantly bonds to the lips and seals in moisture with skin-conditioning emollients, fruit extracts and vitamins. Cili Fruit and Goji Berry extracts offer anti-oxidant protection for the lips, while Vitamins A, C and E nourish and protect. Rich formula glides on, provides cushion without tackiness and infuses the lips with dramatic color. Creates a silky smooth texture on the lips while filling in fine lines and preventing moisture evaporation.
Lips must be clean of other oils and balms to ensure proper binding of the fluid. Allow to set for 30 seconds to one minute. As the formula sets, the polymers bond to one another and create a protective, flexible “web” of color. Throughout the day, lips stay comfortable, while color film remains vibrant, elastic and firmly bound to the skin – without flaking or dryness. Extended coverage means you can literally set it and forget it over the course of the day. Free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates and lanolin.
