ESSIE – The Autumn 2015 Collection
If you haven’t yet seen essie’s new autumn collection, prepare to fall in love… When I laid eyes on the new essie colour palette my heart literally skipped a beat! This new autumn collection encompasses all the colour trends we’ve recently seen on runways, bringing them right to your fingertips. The collection consists of 6 on-trend, yet autumn-appropriate shades and will allow you to go bold with a splash of cobalt blue, or keep things understated with a muted shade of taupe.
Partner in crime – rich dark chocolate
Melted chocolate, on your fingertips. This is a rich, deep chocolate-brown shade that is insanely pigmented. This shade surprised me the most as I didn’t think I would like it as much as I do.
Fall in line – enigmatic jade green
a muted khaki green shade that is both smooth and opaque. This is such a beautiful transition shade for autumn! If you’re not ready to bust out the super dark & dramatic shades, then this is the perfect shade for you.
Style cartel – inky cobalt blue
an eye-catching dark cobalt blue shade. It’s so shiny / glossy, it almost looks like you’re already wearing a top coat. I don’t own any other navy blue that is as bright as this one (and I own a lot of nail polishes), it really is a very unique shade. Sometimes dark navy blue polishes can tend to look a bit black, but ‘Style Cartel’ looks rich & bright in any light (both indoors and out).
Dress to kilt – seductive red
A bold & seductive classic red shade. I’m very happy to report this red is a one-coater! It’s gorgeous – super glossy and so far as proven bloody resilient (chip-free for days).
The perfect cover up – powerful peacock teal
A dark teal that is super opaque, you can get away with applying only 1 coat of this polish. It’s very similar to ‘Mind Your Mittens’ from essie but ‘The Perfect Cover Up’ is just a bit brighter and a tad more teal.
Take it outside – punchy, fresh taupe (and one of my absolute faves!)
A beautiful neutral taupe-grey shade. The formula of this polish is great, it’s not streaky and looks 100% opaque with 2 coats. I personally think this shade is perfect for all year round, not just for autumn. It’s similar to ‘Chinchilly’ from essie, but just a little bit lighter.
Now, it’s no secret that I believe essie are one of, if not the best nail lacquers of all time, with their single-stroke-nail-covering paddle-style brushes, their long-lasting lacquer (oh, and their good-to-go quick-dry finisher is absolutely amazing) and their chip-free coverage; but oh, this autumn collection is quite something else! They continue to create the best!
