Essie Winter Collection

I decided to finally post the polishes I received last week. I did a mint green comparison a week ago, and today I will post about the other polishes from the Essie Winter Collection.

Of the many polishes I own, I did not own a true red cream polish. I have vampy reds, glitter reds, brownish reds...etc. So when this collection came out and I saw fellow bloggers pictures, I knew I should get all three in the collection ( I also like to have complete sets of a collection if the majority are good). Anyways, first up is the very jelly finish red, Lolipop. The application of this was amazing and pictured below is 3 coats.

Next is Mint Candy Apple (which I already did a comparison on). I really love this color esp since it looks like one of my favorite flavors of ice cream...mint chocolate chip! I am tempted to do a manicure with this and do brown squares all over, but I digress :) The application of this was a bit streaky, but it evened out by the 3rd coat.
Lastly, there is Rock Candy. I remember when I was little and how I loved to eat rock candy. I actually wore this shade when I gave my talk a week ago and even though it is very sheer, I love it. The application is smooth but pretty sheer, pictured below is 3 coats. I really like using this color when I have to be more "serious" at work.
Overall, I really like this collection and I am pretty sure all 3 are keepers for me.
