Last week, I came home to some surprise nail mail with the Essie Cashmere Matte Collection!
The Essie Cashmere Matte Collection has a satin-like texture that’s smooth, matte, and really cool.
But what made me sit up and take note was that I wasn’t expecting them to have shimmer. At first, I thought it was my camera’s flash reflecting off the glass of the bottles, but it wasn’t.
Some of these polishes have a beautiful subtle shimmer in the bottle.
In this post, you’ll see swatches, bottle shots, and the official press release. As usual, when I wear them as full manicures, I’ll be sure to review some in-depth on here.
There are 6 shades in the Essie Cashmere Matte Collection:

Introducing the essie Cashmere Matte Collection
Style mavens over the world are always on the lookout for the Next Big Thing. It’s here: essie’s luxuriously ground breaking Cashmere Matte Collection 2015.
With a satin-matte finish that’s both futuristic and instantly iconic, these shades capture essie’s powerful penchant for fashion and irresistible individuality. Cashmere Mattes are not top coats, they are durable essie polishes infused with mattifier and iridescence for a thrilling supersoft finish that’s all their own.
How did essie dream up this ubercool alternative to classic gloss finish? Inspired by the beauty and elegance of the best cashmeres, essie combined colour with these thrilling new textural innovations, fashioning a new look appropriate for any and every season. Refined semi-matte texture infused with a subtle iridescence creates compelling contrast and a fierce, fashion-forward look for any season. The revolutionary combination of matte surface with a subtle colour flash adds up to an intriguing, intricate colour effect never before seen on the market. But don’t be fooled by their sumptuous exterior, these colourful warm fuzzies are packing serious fashion edge.
The Cashmere Matte Collection will be available in salons in January 2015.
