NWP Classic Essentials Mrs. White's Winter Essentials Collection Swatches & Review

Hi there! Today's blog post is featuring a product line by indie brand Native War Paints called the NWP Classic Essentials, "work appropriate essential colors in classic cream and shimmer finishes". This collection, called Mrs. White's Winter Essentials, came out in December 2015 and is a collaboration with Instagrammer @mrswhite8907. Tiffany named each polish in the collection after one of her nail besties, which is adorable. On to the pretties!

Alicia is a lilac purple polish with copper/pink shimmer. This polish was named for Instagrammer @de.lish.ious.nails. It has a slightly thick formula, but it was completely opaque in one coat! Very easy to apply. I used two coats here because I almost always do.

Alison is a blue toned silvery polish with silver shimmer. This polish was named for Instagrammer @apolishedcolleen. This is so loaded with fine shimmer that it almost borders on being a frost, but not quite. There are super slight brush strokes, but nothing to get upset about. Applied easily with great coverage in two coats.

Christy is a dark navy blue polish with pink shimmer. This polish was named for Instagrammer @hospitalhands. It has a great formula, not too thick, and is completely opaque in one coat. I used two here. The shimmer in this is more subtle but it's not hidden, like other shades I've seen in this same combination.

Claire is a rosy pink polish with gold shimmer. This polish was named for Instagrammer @clairestelle8. It has a lovely formula, very easy and smooth. Completely opaque in two coats.

Jenn is a deep brown-y plum polish with flashes of green shimmer. In person, the green bits pop out at you like baby twinkle lights! Very cute. This polish was named for IG @jennpaddict1. Easy formula with great coverage, almost a one coater. This is two coats.

Tiffany is tan/nude polish with gold shimmer. The collection collaborator, @mrswhite8907, named this polish for herself. This shade covered pretty well for such a light color but I needed three coats to cover completely. There are some brushstrokes left behind, but because of the heavy shimmer they aren't as noticeable in person.

These are all available now on the Native War Paints website for $6 per bottle or you can get the collection all together for a discounted price of $30. They also have a really cool Mix & Match option where you can pick any six of the NWP Classic Essentials for $30 (they put out a Fall collection of six as well).

Let me know what you think of these classic cuties! My favorite has to be Alicia, though they are all great! I have consistently been impressed by the NWP formulas on shimmers, I can't wait to try some of their other finishes, especially their glitters and crellies.
