Essie All Tied Up

Ah, my productivity from earlier this week has totally petered out. I haven't gotten much done since Wednesday, and I'm even later than I wanted to be with this post! I am consoling myself with the fact that it's Friday (which is the weekend), and no one is really productive on the weekends anyways... right? :-)

Today, I've got the last of the three polishes I have tried from Essie's summer collection to show you. All Tied Up is a burnt and browned rose color with plenty of golden shimmer scattered throughout.







The gold shimmers in All Tied Up drew me in immediately. It is such an unexpected pairing with the brownish-rose base. I wouldn't say this is a particularly summer color, and in fact, it feels more autumn-ly to me. But the gold shimmers help to brighten it up and to add a level of interest. Of the three Essie summer polishes I have, I think this is the most unique and interesting one.

Just like the other Essies from this collection that I have tried, this one has a great formula which makes application a breeze. Consistency is spot-on and color payoff is great, so just slap on two coats and it is good to go. :-)

You can find All Tied Up on Essie.com, at your local nail salons and drug stores, and at big name retailers like Target and Macy's for $8 for 0.46 oz.

    Too bad about the "productivity" vanishing into the blue - so I guess you can relax again ;)

  8. This does look quite autumnal to me as well! Something between a red and a neutral, if that makes any sense :p

  10. I agree this is an unusual choice for them to put in a summer collection--but it being different meant I needed to have it. :)
