Shearling Darling is a reddy brown opaque nail polish from Essie’s Winter Collection which includes five other pretty awesome looking colors. But this was the one I had to have as soon as I saw it in a magazine. I found it in Shopper’s Drug Mart this week and I even paid full price for it ($11.99 — oh my!).
This is another one of those pseudo colors that looks almost black in low lighting. Right now I am at my computer with an overhead ceiling light at 5:27 p.m. and it looks black or at least a very dark chocolate.
In brighter light and from the bottle I think it looks like the hot color trend, oxblood; which is one of my favorite colors this season for accessories like shoes, handbags, and nail polish.
It is a pretty thick polish going on almost opaque with one coat but needed a second coat to get full coverage over a few peek-a-boo spots. The polish is super shiny on its own but I covered it with Julep’s Freedom Polymer for quick dryness and protection.
