B & B Trend-Worthy Giveaway: Essie’s Cashmere Matte Collection


We spotted it during Oscar Week.  Matte seems to be the trend that is dominating the nail world and on lots of fingertips around LA. Remember all the white gowns? Well, it turns out you need something as cozy as cashmere mattes to pull neutral looks together.  So we did some serious homework and found out the top Hollywood stylists had zeroed in on Essie’s Cashmere Matte Collection to literally polish off their A-List clients looks.

Created with a satin-matte texture and a subtle but spellbinding micro-iridescent finish mixed with reflective micro-pearls, this matte lacquer line-up adds a rich, soft-spun effect and provides just the right touch of season-less chic. I even switched off  my signature white to the subtle Wrap Me Up shade for the Tom Ford Runway show. Shocking, right? Even better, we’re giving away all six of these matte beauties to one lucky winner. Read on to find out how.


First, here’s why you might covet every one of these lacquers. The subtle colors in the collection include my favorite, Wrap Me Up , an almost white shade of whisper-soft neutral pink matte, Just Stitched a warm pearly-plush pink perfect for casual Friday to creative couture, All Eyes on Nudes ,a camel-hued neutral tone,  Comfy in Cashmere , a beautiful blend of mauve and deep velvet undertones that Lauren has been sporting,   Coat Couture , a deep purple shimmer over a compelling greige (how the french say gray), and  Spun in Luxe, a sophisticated  matte blue-black and the darkest shade in the collection collection.
