I know, I know… I’m super late to the game with this collection, but I am just now getting around to swatching it! It was so worth the wait. What a gorgeous collection!!! A few weeks ago I received an AMAZING PR Package from essie and this beautiful set was included!!! I was over the moon. This is the Fall 2018 Collection by essie and it’s all NYC inspired!
A bold palette of strident, striking color speaks New Yorkese with ease with shades like: it takes a west village, say it ain’t soho and booties on broadway. if these city slicking nail polishes can make it here, you can take them anywhere. Essie’s Global Color Designer Rebecca Minkoff wanted to create a collection of shades that were solely inspired by the Big Apple. Have you been to New York? The last time I went was in 2013 which is so so sad. One of my goals next year is to go to NYC… and Chicago!!! I want to go to Chicago too!! I’ve been to NYC many times but never Chicago.
I love that this collection is inspired by one of my fave cities in the world! Let’s take a look at each one.
IT TAKES A WEST VILLAGE
This is a muted pinky/mauve creme. Super duper juicy and delicious! Amazing formula!!! It’s almost a ONE coater, but is perfect at 2 coats.
STOP, DROP, & SHOP
This is a stunning raspberry red/pink creme. WOW! I love colors like these. So bright and yummy. Another fantastic formula. Almost opaque in ONE coat, but I did two coats here just to even everything out.
BOOTIES ON BROADWAY
This is a super pigmented deep dark oxford blue creme that is just wow. Just WOW! I get super excited when I come across ONE coaters and this is it! Amazingly buttery smooth and opaque in ONE coat. It’s perfection!
FALL FOR NYC
This is a merigold orange/yellow. It’s not yellow and it’s not orange. It’s a mix of both. I know you might think this is a mustard yellow but it’s far from it. I’ll do a DUPEs post to compare a true mustard yellow to this so you guys can see. The formula was great! Opaque in 2 coats. This polish is definitely the stand out from the collection.
SAY IT AIN’T SOHO
This is a copper chrome metallic. WOW! Wow! WOW! Simply gorgeous. This is another stunner! It absolutely glows. And guys… it’s a ONE COATER! I am so in love. Can you see that fire in this polish?
EMPIRE SHADE OF MIND
This is a silver chrome steel metallic. essie really hit it out of the park with this collection. Not a single polish in this collection is bad. This one is stunning. It is a little brushstrokey, but it’s a ONE coater so I cannot complain. Just be careful when applying. Try doing quick simple strokes.
