Haven’t you heard? Mauve is back.

Things get tricky this time of year. We’re solidly out of the holiday season and yet, spring still seems so far away. Many of us are tiring of the deep purples and rich reds of the season, but it’s too soon to start passing the piña coladas, if you know what we mean. We’re looking to lighten up, but in a seasonally appropriate way. If you’re finding yourself in a similar predicament as of late, let us introduce you to one of Essie’s latest releases—Princess Charming.

The brand describes it as a “flattering rose mauve accented with nutmeg.” We’re calling it your new favorite neutral. It’s a not-too-sweet, feminine hue that will work with just about whatever your winter uniform consists of—whether it’s a down puffer coat in Nashville, or a pop of Lilly P. in Palm Beach. We think this soft rosy hue has staying power on the beauty scene. Luckily enough, it won’t be chipping from your fingers anytime soon either. Princess Charming is part of the Gel Couture collection, Essie’s line of long-wear polish.

Essie is the reigning queen of neutral polish hues, so we’re always anxiously anticipating the reveal of their latest collections for new colors that will take us through those tricky times between seasons. Princess Charming is one of six shades in the new Essie Enchanted collection released earlier this month, which includes yet another amazing neutral called Matter of Fiction, in addition to a few more whimsical options that deserve a spin on your fingertips before their next collection drops. You can bet we’ll be sharing the details on the new Essie nail polish launches as soon as we have them.
