It is now the middle of winter. Fall and winter collections have long been out, but we won't see anything new for spring for a while - not that I'm super in the mood for spring anyways. But still, this is that dull time of the nail polish year where nothing is coming out that has me salivating. I'm not sure how, but Essie sensed this void and filled it with a fabulous little mini collection called "Go Overboard". It consists of three colours - a lilac, a teal, and this little number called Armed and Ready. I picked mine up at Target!
Please excuse my horrifically dry skin. I am super super dry, especially in winter. I happened to catch the light and decided to snap a pic for you anyways in the hopes of showing off the shimmer in this polish!! It is very subtle in the polish and hard to capture in photographs, but I quite like it that way. The base of Armed and Ready is a murky cool olive green. The closest thing I have in my collection is Essie Power Clutch, but that is more cool toned and grey where this has more brown - but still isn't overly warm. What makes this polish sing is the restrained helping of golden or coppery super microshimmer.
I like this polish quite a bit - it's neutral, while being a bit of a statement. It's tough and rugged, which makes it a nice contrast to feminine winter sweaters.
Have you picked up anything from Go Overboard? Any suggestions for a super hydrating body or hand cream for winter - I would love any recommendations!
