Happy Friday!! Anyone have fun plans this weekend? My only plans are further organizing nail polish...fun!
Today I have for you guys Essie's Cocktail Bling Collection for Winter 2011. This is just half of what they are putting out. I am personally more excited for their Luxeffects but these are gorgeous also! All 6 polishes in this collection are cremes and perfect for winter!

Bangle Jangle is a soft dusty lilac. I really love this shade, however I had some problems with the formula on this one. It didn't want to level itself out. I swatched it a couple times thinking it was just me applying the polish poorly but it did it everytime :( You can really see what I mean on my middle finger in the second picture. I used 2 coats for the photos below.
Bobbing for Baubles is a rich navy. I adore this one, are we surprised by that? haha! This shade seems to be pretty hot for Fall/Winter this year! The formula on this one was great, I used 2 coats for the photos below. It dried super shiny as you can see in the first photo with the trees and whatnot reflecting on my nails!
Brooch The Subject is a beige nude. I can't decide if this works with my skintone or not, when I was wearing it I loved it...now looking at the pics, not so much. This could be a fantastic mannequin hands type of polish for someone, it kind of looks like I'm wearing liquid foundation on my nails. The formula was pretty good on this one, a little streaky on the first coat but it evened out on the second. I used 2 coats for the photos below.
Cocktail Bling is a very greyed out blue. This one is a bit of a minx, depending on the light it either looked very blue or very grey. I love shades like this, you have to give them a second look. The formula on this was great, 2 easy coats!
School Of Hard Rocks is a dusty blue green. This is my favorite of the collection, I like it so much that I'm thinking I might need a backup bottle...I'm so glad I got this in a full size bottle and not a mini like some from this collection. Great formula on this one also, I used 2 coats!
Size Matters is a bright blue toned red. meh, it's red...it's been done about a bazillion times. Do I need another...no. I do laugh at the name of it though, good enough reason for me to own it I suppose. The formula was good, 2 coats!
So what do you guys think? My favorites are School of Hard Rock, Bobbing for Baubles and Cocktail Bling! The other three polishes I could live without! I think this collection is fab for winter, I do love all the dusty shades! I really enjoy what Essie has been putting out lately! I hope they continue putting out great collections!
The Cocktail Bling Collection is available now! I bought mine on http://www.nailsupplies.us/. I have also seen this collection out already at Target and Rite Aid. Since I saw it at Rite Aid I would guess that all the other drugstores would have it out also, or should soon!
