It’s officially holiday polish time (for me, anyway)! I’m loving all of the sparkly winter polishes that are currently out there, and one of my favorites as of late is Toggle to the Top from Essie’s Winter 2013 “Shearling Darling” collection.
Essie describes this shade as a “crushed garnet lacquer” and I believe the description is pretty fitting. The polish itself takes on a deep burgundy base with crimson sparkle. Since it’s not completely opaque (glitter polishes rarely are) it does apply somewhat sheer and very streaky. But that said, two coats are all that I needed to get a good opacity. And I was pleasantly surprised to find that this polish lasted a full seven days without a chip!
It’s the perfect glittery red for a holiday party!
