Essie Parka Perfect Swatches

It’s time we dive into the deeper, more muted nail shades and put the pinks and corals on the bench until Spring rolls around. The color that’s been making my tips happy and all ready for the A/W season is yet another fab Essie shade (I have a problem, I know) and the beauty in question is Parka Perfect (here). This luxurious gray with a touch of glitter appeals to me with its colder weather vibe and I am excited to dig out my favorite knitwear more so then ever. The dusty blue undertones are beautiful and make the varnish really unique and en vogue. Think Essie Bikini So Teeny (here) but deeper and grayer– it’s love! The lovely neutral shade of Parka Perfect makes it my lacquer of choice for any occasion. For an everyday wear or for any formal event, this sophisticated gem always looks on point. Not to mention that it goes with everything and you don’t have to spend hours matching your nails to your outfit. It’s a people-pleaser, what can I say?

The formula of Parka Perfect is an important part of the equation so luckily it ticks all boxes. It left me smitten from the very first application and it reminded me once again why I love Essie so much. I can’t say no to highly pigmented nail polishes and I love it that this baby goes opaque in just one swipe. No faff, no mess, no streaks – run the perfect big, fat brush across your nails and you can easily be out the door in five minutes. All sounding rather fab so far isn’t it? Well it gets better and my favorite part is Parka Perfect’s longevity. It just stays on. For days. I wore it on my tips for a solid week and there were hardly any chipping or tip wear. Oh and the finish? Absolutely beautiful with all the right amounts of glossy. Brilliant.

Have you tried Para Perfect before? Do you love it as much as I do? Which is you favorite A/W nail polish?

Lots of love,

  1. That is such a gorgeous shade! I haven't seen Essie here but I am also really new to this town so will have to keep looking for it. Will definitely pick this up to try if I see it, hopefully it'll look good against my tan skin too.xx
