Love this gold. Can be a pain to take off but I can deal with it for this color. Only takes one coat for it to even and the glitter is just beautiful.

i like this glitter polish but one mini bottle is enough for me so i wont need to repurchase.
very finely milled gold & silver glitter, spplies well in 1 coat but 2 coats gives a better finish. a top coat is a must for me otherwise the glitter is quite rough.
a biatch to remove for sure ut fund using pure acetone removed faster & easier.
a great colour for the winter collection. looks lovely just on tips too.

This is one of my favorite essie nail polishes. I love it so much that I felt the need to write a review.
This is the perfect glitter polish, because it is opaque and wonderfully sparkly. It's in between a gold and a silver, so it works with any cool toned or warmed toned polish and clothing. I highly recommend it to everyone.

This is honestly one of the best glitters out on the market right now. The glitter in Beyond Cozy is so dense that it only takes 2 coats to become opaque. The color is gorgeous too, it definitely leans more towards silver than gold.

Beyond Cozy is a nice silvery-gold glitter polish. It is unlike other glitter polishes that I have used before, both in texture and in wearability. Though polishes usually chip quickly on my nails, this lasted several days without a single chip. It was easy to apply and only needed a maximum of two coats. This color looks good on every finger but also looks great as an accent nail polish. I wear two-tone jewelry so it was nice that this color meshed well with both silver and gold pieces. The main drawback with Beyond Cozy is that it is EXTREMELY difficult to get off! Took me a long time with many methods, and still didn't come off clean. Perhaps a stronger remover would have done the trick. All in all, it is a great addition to the Essie collection and I would recommend it to a friend.

I love this polish. My cousin walked in the room with it in her hand and I nearly ran her over to get it. At the time I had a blue shimmer polish on and had to try it, so instead of taking the blue off I just paintd over it. With in two coats the blue was gone. I had to do a whole new mani before she left my house. The formula is great and for just around eight bucks, I think it's a steal. Two coats of a top coat makes it smooth to the touch and it's not trashy like some glitter can be. The only issue is it's hard to get off, but what glitter isn't? I absolutely LOVE this and I ended up buying two bottles. The best glitter I have ever found.

This is the most beautiful glitter, and you only need two coats for it to be solid glitter. I used it for a French tip and only needed one! It's a really fine glitter and is just gorgeous in the light, perfect for accent nails but isn't too flashy to use for all your fingers. Probably in my top 5 polishes of all time. The whole Winter 2012 "Leading Lady" collection was wonderful.

I'm a little on the fence with this one. Application is so-so. It dries very quickly- maybe a little too quickly. I found that it sort of gloops up on the brush and it can be a bit difficult to get an even layer on the nail despite the fact that all the glitters are a uniform size. Even with a good top coat, I had tip chipping after one day (I work a front desk at a hotel and had done the dishes that night so, not heavy duty work!). The redeeming quality is the color. It's a very densely packed, warm silver glitter that is absolutely beautiful. It's great for a night out or at home in a cozy sweater- as the name says, "Beyond Cozy." :)

This is the only glitter polish I have ever worn and ever will wear, and even then definitely only in the holiday season. It's quite cute at home with a chunky knit, like the name suggests, but also nice with your favourite LBD and a glass of champagne at the office shindig.
It's somewhere between gold and silver but in most lights it looks more like silver. Because the glitter is so fine, it looks more metallic than really glittery so it has more of a metallic sheen to it than real sparkle, which makes it easier to wear but also duller. However, in the spotlights the sparkle really comes out and it looks very festive.
In short, this is the most wearable, classy glitter polish I have ever come across. The colour goes with everything and I've even worn this to the office for one day only as it was the day of the Christmas office party and there was no time to go home and paint my nails after work. I didn't even feel uncomfortable.
So I guess this is festive polish for pussies, which is fine by me and I would probably buy it again if it weren't a limited edition.

This polish is sooooo pretty! The white gold color is just so flattering and nice. I also like how small and dense the glitter was, the formula of this nail polish is great. I only needed 2 coats for full coverage and it did not dry insanely gritty or bumpy. I have this and L'oreal Sparkilicious and they are similar not the same, the glitter in the L'oreal is less smooth and bigger, it also dries bumpier and was not as easy to apply as the Essie. They are also different tones of 'white gold"...They are different enough to own both in my opinion but if I had to choose it would be Beyond Cozy.

Y'all, this has got to be one of my favorite glitter polishes! It's so gorgeous in the bottle and on your nails. At first glance it looks like its gold, but when you are in shaded light it looks silver. You will definitely need two coats of this polish. Also, if you like a smooth finish you will probably have to do two coats of a top coat. I did one and it still feels kind of gritty, but I love the color so much it doesn't bother me. The Essie Leading Lady collection does not fail to impress!

I really like this polish, but as I'm a sucker for glitter, that's not surprising. It's not gold but it's not silver. Champagne is a good description. You wouldn't need to wear a color under this, as it is very opaque. It also is very rough textured and won't feel glossy. Today I am using it as a ring finger accent with beige/ nude polish on the other fingers, and it adds a little sparkle to an otherwise boring manicure.

I found this at target and it practically called me to take it home. It is a silver glitter polish but has some hints og like champagne gold in it. I did it as a french tip with the essie fiji polish and looked soo good. The bad part is that its kind of sticky but i think its because its a glitter polish. It is about $8 so its expensive. But overall its a good color!

I don't reach for glitters often (Ruby Pumps excluded), but this one happened to catch my eye in CVS. It's from the Winter 2012 collection and is a very lovely antique silver with occasional specks of champagne gold. It actually reminds me of an old Express Finish Maybelline polish I had back in middle school. The glitter is fine enough to look sophisticated, and catches the light really well, even without top coat.
It dries very gritty though, so if you're a stickler for a smooth texture (like I am) it'll take a few coats of it to make it glassy to the touch.
The only negative I can think of (besides it being a top coat eater) is that it tends to get thick while you're painting.
I wouldn't repurchase not because it's a bad product but because, like I said, I don't wear glitter polishes very often and it'll probably last me years.
