Ellagee: Cozy Winter Nights Collection and a Black Friday Weekend Exclusive Shade!

Press Sample

Happy hump day, dear readers! I hope this post finds you well! Things are pretty low-key around here the rest of this week while I am home with my husband and boys for the Thanksgiving holiday. We aren't going to be traveling around here, nor do we have guests visiting this year, and that really takes the pressure off for feasting requirements. Sure, we're going to have a turkey and a few of the sides, but we've picked our few favorites to cook rather than make things we're not as fond of. Thanksgiving marks the startup of a crazy season, so I'm going to be taking it easy this week before I start stressing about all the things I need to get done.

For today's blog post, I wanted to share the new Cozy Winter Nights Collection designed by Ellagee Polish for this holiday season in addition to the Black Friday exclusive. Let's check them out!

The Cozy Winter Nights Collection is composed of four deep, richly colored subtle holos filled with bright shimmer and color shifting ultrachrome flakes. I was out in public when I staged this photo, and I got a lot of odd looks from people when I pulled out my camera. Haters gonna hate, but this bottle shot certainly makes me feel all warm and cozy during those chilly nights! Let's get a closer look at each shade!

Fireside Sparks
Three coats plus top coat

A smokey navy blue subtle holo with bright blue shimmer plus color shifting ultrachrome flakes

There is something so beautiful about smoky blue shades, and I just love this combination with the flakes! The formula of this polish was perfection and it applied with no digging of flakes or flake clumpage. There were a few occasional flakes that were overhanging from my nail, but they remove easily or can be pushed bakc up onto the nail for a smooth nail tip finish.

Aurora Borealis
Two coats plus top coat

A charcoal subtle holo with blue/lavender shifting shimmer plus color shifting ultrachrome flakes

I have only seen auroras in photographs, but I hope to have the opportunity to see one in person some day. Until then, I am happy to get my fix with this beautiful polish! Aurora Borealis was a touch more pigmented that the rest of the Cozy Winter Nights Collection, so I only needed to use to easy coats for opacity.

Cozy Warm
Three coats plus top coat

A deep red subtle holo with pink shimmer and color shifting ultrachrome flakes

I love dark, sultry red polishes in general, but Cozy Warm has the added Va Va Voom due to those flakes! This polish is perfect for when you want to get your vamp-look on, and other than having to push a stray flake back up onto the nail, the formula is sublime.

Merry and Bright
Three coats plus top coat

An evergreen subtle holo with gold shimmer plus color shifting ultrachrome flakes

I love to sport evergreen nails once the holidays come around, and what holiday collection could truly be complete without one! Merry and Bright rounds out this holiday quad perfectly, and as you may have guessed already, the formula was fantastic!

The Cozy Winter Nights Collection will be launching on the Ellagee Polish website here on Black Friday. You can purchase the shades individually for $12 a piece, or you can buy the full 4-piece collection at the discounted price of $43.

In addition to the Cozy Winter Nights Collection, Ellagee Polish will also be offering a weekend exclusive shade. Presenting: The Naughty List!

The Naughty List
Three coats plus top coat

A sheer silver base full of shades of silver, gold, and copper microglitter

Who knew that being naughty could be so good! Well.....ahem.....I'm just going to leave it at that, haha! You may be getting coal in your stockings this year, but your nails will dazzle you so much that you just won't care. This shade is stunning, and I love that the additional gold and copper microglitters makes it more wearable for more skintones than a true silver only. It certainly is a must have, even if you are on Santa's good list this year.

The Naughty List is the Black Friday weekend exclusive; it will only be available for purchase starting on Friday through the weekend before retiring at 11:59 pm cst on Monday November 28. It will also be a free bonus with any $50 merchandise purchase on Black Friday only.

Black Friday Weekend Promotion!
All purchases over $20 on Black Friday will receive a mystery code for $1 to $10 off a future purchase from Ellagee Polish.

Is there a particular shade from the Cozy Winter Nights Collection that has caught your attention, or will you be adding yourself to The Naughty List this weekend? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
