Essie’s Toggle To The Top

23 Nov

Hi darlings!
I decided to try out Essie’s Toggle To The Top from their newest winter collection that’s called Shearling Darling.

I love the whole “snowflakes / let there be peace and love on earth” finished look after stamping Essie’s Good As Gold on top of this new polish.

Let’s talk about this new polish I got. Toggle To The Top is a very dark vampy red jelly filled with these sparkly red glitters. It’s very gritty and I found applying very thin coats to be helpful in making it easier to work with. It is my understanding that there’s been some complaints about it being very lumpy and/or chunky and that it is very difficult to apply.

This is two coats of Toggle To The Top with one coat of my Glossy Glam topcoat.

It’s really pretty! It reminds me Leading Lady from their last year collection. Here’s a bottle/swatch comparison between the two. Leading Lady is on the left and Toggle To The Top is on the right. As you can see, Toggle To The Top is a little darker. Here’s swatches to show the difference. Both colors have two coats on the swatch sticks.

I hope you found this comparison helpful! Now the stamping…
I used the snowflakes design on the Cheeky’s Jumbo Plate 6. The plate is called Happy Holidays. Love + Peace is from a Fauxnaud (Konad knock-offs) with QA11 on it.

This was fun to do! I can’t wait to try out the other 5 colors from Essie’s Shearling Darling collection this weekend! ❤
