Essie Fishnet Stockings is a staple red for anyone's collection. It came out in the 90's and hasn't lost it's appeal or gone out of style. I remember reading in a fashion magazine a couple years ago, that everyone needed to own this spicy dark red creme so when I came across it at the drugstore, I listened and bought it for myself.
I really love this red in winter. It's a true-red with very slight blue undertones. The formula is fantastic. Buttery smooth and perfect in 2 coats.
Fishnet Stockings vs Shall We Chalet?
Essie must've loved this red for winter as well because they went and duped themselves with Shall We Chalet from the 2015 Winter Collection. I'm wearing both polishes below. Can you tell them apart?
The bottle shot makes Fishnet Stockings seem like it will be darker than Shall We Chalet but 2 coats on the nail and they are identical. Both have a fantastic formula so if you are in need of a good winter red staple I recommend picking up one of them!
While both are great (and identical) there's something about Fishnet Stockings being the original and the true "classic" that appeals to me. It's been in the permanent collection since it came out so it should be incredibly easy to find anywhere.
Do you own this classic Essie polish?
