Mani Monday: Spun in Luxe

As soon as I saw this color, I knew that I had to give it a try. In the bottle, Essie Spun in Luxe from the Cashmere Matte collection appears navy with a distinct blue glimmer throughout. With the satin-matte texture promised by this formula, I thought it might turn out to be one of the more interesting colors in my collection. Unfortunately, as you can see, the shimmer doesn't really come out at all, and it ends up looking much flatter than it does in the bottle. I'm really disappointed, as this is easily something I could have accomplished with a regular navy and a bottle of matte topcoat (I do really like Essie's Matte About You).

I guess it can't be non-stop hits all the time, but I do wish this had lived up to its potential, as it could have been a winter mainstay for me.
