The problem was, I didn't actually own the colour. I had seen swatches online and thought it looked so stunning and unique, but Essie Comfy in Cashmere was sold out at every drugstore I visited.
Good ol' Santa (my Mom) pulled through this year and I was super stoked to find it bundled in my stocking. FINALLY!!! I finally have my hands on it and the colour/finish did not disappoint my expectations. I'm so happy to add this polish to my collection and it has quickly become a favourite.
It's a cashmere matte formula with purple micro-irridesence. I don't quite understand how this works...it's definitely got that stone look once dry, but somehow it sparkles and shimmers at the same time. As a nail polish enthusiast, my knees get weak when I look at my nails with this colour on. It is the best thing I have possibly ever seen! And the feel! Oh the feel...it's not quite as soft as cashmere, but it's so smooth and silky to the touch.
The taupe/mauve colour screams "wear me on a cold winter day as you snuggle up next to the fireplace in your onesie."
