This week we’re all over Essie in Sew Psyched from the Fall 2011 collection. Essie describes this shade is as a cashmere-soft sage pewter. This color reminds me a bit of Chanel Le Vernis 247 Khaki Vert but just a bit darker. Sew Psyched has a subtle silver shimmer that didn’t quite translate onto the nail but still pretty none-the-less. The color looks more like a creme even though it has shimmer to it.
I tested the shade without using a base or top coat and was pretty impressed with the results, a smooth and even application. I was also pleasantly surprised at how pigmented this polish is, it took just one coat to achieve full opaque coverage. Essie Sew Psyched it a winner, this is my favorite Essie shade so far.
