What: Essie's Winter 2007 Lineup, $7 per bottle
Why: Dark, deep black, and grey nail polishes were once left to your high school's goth clique, but these days dark nails are everywhere. Case in point: Lauren Conrad's darkly painted digits. No, she's not mourning a lost friendship (or is she?); she's just following one of this season's hottest new nail trends.
Essie certainly took note of this when they developed their winter lineup. The best color in the line is Over the Top, a dark, gun metal grey with a smooth, semi-gloss finish. It's almost black yet still sophisticated in its dimensions of shimmer and grey. Wrapped in Rubies, another fantastic shade, swirls together deep burgundy with a gold sheen. Other great finds in the line include Steel-ing the Scene, Nude Attitude, Showstopper, and Who's She Red.
In our opinion, Essie delivers some of the best in class polishes with a great brush, smooth application and shiny finish. As if you needed a reason to snatch one up, let's be honest–a girl can never have too many nail polishes!
