Essie All I Want For Christmas Gift Set

I got my first Christmas card on Friday – it came along with the 2015 Essie All I Want For Christmas Gift Set with five Essie shades in a festive box.

Most of the samples I’m getting at the moment are Christmas related so do bear with me – I’m trying to intersperse ‘normal’ stuff as much as I can. I love this Essie gift; not least because I really do like a grey polish and it includes Cocktail Bling (described as ‘a precious pale grey jewel’ which might be a flight of fancy too far!) and that in turn reminds of the Dior grey – which funnily enough, I don’t think Dior have ever actually brought out as a nail shade. Grey is a brilliant shade for adding some shimmer over as well – a bit more edgy than red or pink. The black shade is Licorice, the brighter red shade is Bahama Mama, the pale cream is Fiji and the wine shade is Fishnet Stockings. None of these shades are new, to my knowledge, but it’s a nicely edited selection with something for every nail mood.

I’ve found the Essie All I Want For Christmas Gift Set for £24.99 HERE, but it’s part of the three for two offer, so if you have other gifts to get, it’s probably worth doing it via Boots. Even at £24.99, it works out at £5 a polish when usually, Essie polishes are £7.99 each.
