Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! I have a day off work coming up, which just means instead of being on my computer all day for work, I can be on my computer all day blogging! I’ve got big plans to get a lot of swatching and posting done, and also enjoying the beautiful weather we’re finally having down here in Chicago. What are your Memorial Day plans? Obviously it’s all a little shifted this year, but of course I would still love to hear!
And now let’s shift over to the review! The collection we’re looking at today is the Essie ‘Original Remixed’ collection. For this release, Essie took 6 of their classic, popular shades and “remixed” them to create 6 new fun colors. I know this has been talked about a lot lately, but I love grabbing all of the new Essie collections, and couldn’t resist passing them up. so we’re still talking about them today! They’re worth another chat!
Now I only grabbed 5 of the 6 shades. I can’t tell you why I decided to practice self control and not collecting all of the shades for just this one collection. I’m pretending I’m breaking my collector mentality, but then I only pass on 1 shade. Listen, I don’t get it either.
But either way I only have 5 of the 6 shades here. The one shade I decided to pass on was ‘Ballet Sneakers’, which is a super light pink cream. I know I have a ton of those in my collection and don’t wear those as often, so it was the one I left behind.
These are also cool because each of the bottles are decorated with these little designs that relate to the name of the shade. They’re imprinted, and not a sticker, so you don’t have to worry about them wearing off. And the “original” shades have also been released with the special bottles and designs, so if you’ve never owned them and are looking to now, this is the perfect time.
I bought these off of 8ty8beauty.com, but they’re also available on beyondpolish.com as well.
