Probably my favourite season for new beauty collections is the fall, especially when it comes to nail polish. The dark burgundy tones and warm crisp colours get me every time. Today I had a little taste of this pleasure while reviewing essie Fall 2015 Collection.
The six new compelling shades of the essie Fall 2015 Collection are inspired by 1970s rock and roll. According to essie:
Deep reds smolder with brazen beauty. Midnight blue wields hypnotic power. Shimmering bronze like molten lame emerges from the night and onto the dance floor.
Let’s have a look at the swatches – all are shown with 2 coats and essie top coat, unless otherwise stated.
One word – WOWZA (is that a word?). So I’ve started with my favourite in the essie Fall 2015 Collection – leggy legend. essie describes this hue as an ‘alloyed bronze bombshell’. I describe this lacquer as multidimensional bronze perfection. While this hue is not a duochrome, it really does have that same power to shift in colour depending on how the light hits it (not as intense as a regular duochrome polish). If you’re going to purchase any of any of the essie Fall 2015 Collection, leggy legend has got to be it.
This summer I’ve certainly fallen in love with deep coral reds and color binge is definitely no exception. It’s a beauty and goes on so absolutely perfectly.
essie describes with the band as a “toasted spice burgundy” and I definitely concur. If you’re looking for a classic fall polish, you won’t be disappointed here.
Yummy, yummy, yummy, I just want to eat this plum coloured lacquer up.
If you’re a blue lover than don’t hesitate to pick this puppy up. This hue will definitely have you feeling like a rockstar from day to night. The best part? This polish is a one coater! Yes you heard me correctly, one coat for full coverage.
This colour is definitely unique in my collection. It’s a deep shimmering espresso that I can’t wait to wear this fall and guess what else? Yep, it’s another one coater. Woohoo!
So there you have it, 6 new rock ‘n roll inspired hues for the essie Fall 2015 Collection. When these landed on my desk, I couldn’t wait to get into them, and as is usual with essie, I’m in love.
The essie Fall 2015 Collection will be available as of August 25, 2015 in drugstores, salons and other beauty destinations (though I have already seen this collection up at Nail Polish Canada.
Which one(s) will you be picking up?
Until next time,
