Essie Galaxy Metal Collection and GIVEAWAY!


It's been  a while since I did a nail post but I'm back with a (Big) Bang -tenuous astrology link there with Essie's new Galaxy Metals collection. They've got 6 beautiful metallic shades perfect for Winter. These make me think of cold frosty morning but also have a bit of a magical mermaid/unicorn theme that is so popular at the moment. Loving it!

They are such unique shades with a futuristic feel, their reflective particles add something a little special to your winter wardrobe. For me this is great as I'm always in dark shades so a little bit of shine is just what I need to brighten things up a bit. 

Let's have a little look at how they are on the nails then...

Mercury in Retrograde
 A steel blue that goes on effortlessly. Seriously I needed one quick coat and it was opaque! A great change-up from the navy nails I love so much this time of year.

In my Orbit 
You think of metal, you think of silver and this shade gives you nails the Tinman would be jealous of!  As it's a paler shade it's a little thinner and needed two coats.

Stardust 
This shade is s exclusive to Superdrug stores. It's a pretty blue toned pink which will be perfect all year round. It works with the pastel shades of Spring as well as the frosty winter looks.

Out of this World 
This is an another shade that is exclusive shade to Superdrug. How unique is this one? It's just gorgeous! It's almost grey, but the lilac undertones give it this beautiful edge when it catches the light. Stunning.

Refection Perfection
I can see this being a favourite. It's a blogger-friendly pale rose gold and that creamy formula made it so easy to apply.

Stars Aligned
 This is probably my favourite. A pale yellow gold which is just the most perfect Christmas shade. I think with a glitter over the top this will be stunning!

I find a lot of metallics can be a bit wishy washy but I'm really impressed with the formula of these, with the exception of 'In My Orbit' I only needed one coat and they are super shiny even without a top coat.
