Late Start - Essie Over the Top


I first bought this over a year ago when Chanel released a bunch of dark polishes with shimmer for Fashion's Night Out 2010. This one reminded me of Chanel Steel in the bottle, so instead of splurging the price of 'ridiculous + ridiculous shipping', I opted for this.

Then, it sat in my collection. Waiting, longing to be worn. And when I finally did...let's just say I owe it an apology.



Essie Over the Top is a charcoal with pearlescent, but never brushstroke-y, multi-coloured shimmer that just GLOWS. I've seen reds that do this, but never something this dark. This is just flat out gorgeous and I can't believe there isn't more hype surrounding it!

I'm sorry Essie Over the Top - you are my new winter staple. I definitely regret not pulling you out last year. Shame on me.

I looooove this one too! It's been a staple in my collection for a while now and it's the color I reach for when painting my toenails the most. I also get a ton of compliments on it any time I wear it. Second the love!

This is very pretty. I think it looks good on a lot of different skintones.

Hmmm, why do I not already own this polish? Must rectify the situation ASAP.

I love love love it! I know my low-light photos don't do it justice, so I'm so glad you posted these beautiful shots! I did buy the retail version (Over the Edge) but as far as I can tell they are identical.

So many beautiful polishes, and so few hands...what's a girl to do?

That is lovely. It's on my list. I seem to be saying that a lot lately. Need to buy some polishes. I've been buying too many drugstore polishes.
