Essie Coat Couture

Spoiler:  love this polish.

Coat Couture has a smoky, cool toned taupe base and electric blue-ish aqua shimmer.  It's an absolute beauty that can pass for a neutral but when the light hits it, it's all KAPOW.  The formula was sort of typical for a matte-finish polish.  It was pretty thick, but overall easy to work with.  I used two coats.  I also put topcoat over it, obviously.  I recommend you get this one if you're at all a fan of taupe polish because it's out-of-this-world pretty.

I'm referring to last weekend as my Lost Weekend because House of Cards.  I am totally obsessed with it and have been since I lived in New York and watched a lot of political shows to distract myself (I marathoned The West Wing like there was no tomorrow).  Remy isn't exactly named after Remy Danton, but the name was in my head when we got our cat because I had been watching House of Cards.  For the first week or so I had our Remy, I kept hearing Frank Underwood's southern drawl in my head when I thought of his name.  So, this:

if this isn't the best use of pic stitch idk what is

Season three was completely amazing.  I think episodes one and thirteen were probably the best, and Doug's storyline was totally enthralling.  Also there was a lot of Remy Danton, which I liked, but there was not enough Cashew the guinea pig, which I didn't like.  All in all though...I'M FREAKING OUT THAT I HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER YEAR FOR MORE.  But god was it good.  Did anyone else finish it all in one weekend like a maniac?  Please tell me I'm not insane...?

K, that's all for me.  Hope you're all doing well, and YAY IT'S MARCH!!


  1. For some reason I haven't been able to get into House of Cards, but maybe I will try it again, due to your recommendation.

    Love this polish.

  2. OMG I finished it Sunday night. Wtf are we supposed to do now?
