Availability:  I purchased mine at my local DM after stalking it for over a month, and they still had a few colors from the collection left last week, although Beyond Cozy was not among them.  However, they did have the mini trio set still available which includes this color.

United States:  Amazon.com, Walgreens, Wal-Mart & CVS stores.

Canada:  Nail Polish Canada

Germany:  DM, Amazon.de and I had also heard Douglas stores had them as well.

United Kingdom:  Amazon.co.uk

My Two Cents:  Beyond Cozy is beyond ah-mazing!  Not only is it beautiful, goes on like a dream, but it has been exceptional in the wear department.  For a silver polish, it definitely has a that little something different thanks to the hint of warm champagne in it. but it has this It’s a great holiday color, but in all honesty I will have no problem wearing it year round when the mood strikes me.  I also think it would make a good base for some jelly sandwich experimentation or as an accent color.  If you’ve not already picked this up, then I highly recommend doing so if you can track a bottle down as it will not disappoint.

Tips:  Start with a base coat, and be generous with the top coat, especially if you don’t like the rough feel that top coat thirsty glitters can have.

Something Similar:  In all honesty, there are a whole whack of silver micro-glitters on the market, but I just don’t feel that any others have the same warm tone to them that Beyond Cozy does.  However, if you beg to differ please feel free to let me know by commenting down below.

As always, thanks for reading and check back soon.

    I really like this Essie color because I feel like it’s kind of a mix between silver and gold. Great for New Years too! =)

  2. It kind of reminds me of the Color Club color I have. I did a post on it a few weeks ago.
