What an appropriate blog post since today is the official start of Fall here in the USA. This was not even planned LOL
Let us get onto the post shall we 🙂
I get really excited when Essie come out with their Fall collections. I am more excited about the Fall collections than the Summer collections.
Just because of all the dark, muted colours that come out.
I recently popped in to Ulta and saw that they has the Fall collection stand on display.
There are 6 colours in the collection
Take It Outside, Partner In Crime, Dress To Kilt , Fall In Line and The Perfect Cover Up,Style Cartel
I picked up the Fall Cube 4 Pc Mini Nail Polish Collection Set. The set includes Style Cartel, Take It Outside, Partner In Crime, Dress To Kilt. It looks like you have to purchase the other shades separately as I did not see them in a set.
I am happy with the collection 🙂 they are great colours that you can wear during Fall and Winter months.
What Essie Has to Say:
Live dangerously. dress flawlessly. inspired by espionage and the thrill of the chase, the fall 2014 palette delivers shades so chic it’s almost criminal.
1. Take it Outside – want to start trouble? Don this punchy, fresh taupe with a whisper of pink and hit ’em with your best shot. Similar shades: Master Plan, Cocktails & Coconuts, Chincilly
2. Partner in Crime – psst…this creamy rich dark chocolate with deep mahogany undertones is a match made in mystery. Similar shades: Mink Muffs, Wicked, Mambo. This is my favourite shade/colour in the collection or from the shades that I do have
3. Dress to Kilt – Is the collections name sake – this dangerously seductive red is jucy, ripe and ready to be picked in a line-up. It’s the one, guilty as charged. Similar shades: Scarlett o’hara, Bordeaux, A-list. Does remind me a little of Revlon’s Cherries in Snow
4. Style Cartel – devious in all the right ways, this inky cobalt blue unleashes the power of its fashion intelligence in one bold stroke. Similar shades: Butler Please, After School Boy Blazer, Bobbing for Baubles. I did not think I was going to like this, but this is my second favourite colour
They are all really awesome colours and I love them each, now just to pick up the other two.
All four shades only require two coats and you will get full coverage. They are not streaky at all, they apply really lovely on the nails.
Only issue I did have with the colours are that they did chip on me after only having them on for a day. I did apply a no-chip polish and that did not work at all.
What are some of your favourite base and top coats?
