Swatch: Essie–Beyond Cozy Plus Bonus Failed Attempt at Nail Art

Today’s nail art begins with a Christmas glitter polish from Essie’s new Winter 2012 Collection called Beyond Cozy that immediately caught my eye! This is a very fine gold glitter that needed just two coats for full opacity with very smooth and even application.

As much as I loved having all of my nails gold, I felt like they needed a bit of a contrast colour so I started doing some sort of pattern on my ring finger which I ended up hating, but couldn’t seem to remove! I ended up finishing off the rest of my nails with some swirly lines and dots. This is what I get for not practicing on a nail wheel first!  Oh well, Beyond Cozy is still gorgeous for the holidays although it might just become an accent nail colour for me since it’s so sparkly and distracting!

  3. Very satisfying shade of gold here. Perhaps a holly-n-mistletoe cluster on one nail only?

  4. Wow, opaque in only two coats? Usually I'm disappointed by fine glitters but this one is so pretty!
