Essie Just Stitched is originally from the Cashmere Matte Collection that was launched in 2015. The Cashmere Matte shades were actually among some of my favorites that Essie ever created! I am typically not a matte nail polish fan -- I like it glossy, glossy, GLOSSY. But these shades were just so, so perfect. Like Comfy in Cashmere, for example -- I mean, look at that shimmery purple!

But I'm here to talk about Just Stitched today. Just Stitched is a beautiful pale pink shot through with turquoise shimmer. Two coats yield even, perfect, opaque color. As you can see, I didn't leave it matte -- while it looks nice that way, I preferred it glossy with top coat. But it can definitely be worn either way.
This is one of those colors that's very ladies who lunch but with a twist. I'm typically not really a pale pink nail polish fan, but the addition of the turquoise shimmer kicks it up a notch and gives it that je ne sais quoi element.
|Essie definitely knocked it out of the park with this one.|
I think my grandma would have loved this color. I hope that I've done her memory proud by wearing it for her.
