Essie Fall Collection 2010

 - by Playing with Polish

It’s in the high 80′s today in the beautiful Bay Area, so it is difficult for me to get into a fall mood. To be honest my thoughts are drifting more towards lemonade and cranking the A/C. In spite of the heat it is time for all of new the fall collections to come out.

This collection of Essie minis is a Nordstrom Beauty Exclusive.

Sew Psyched

Sew Psyched is a greyish-green with a slight shimmer. The promo pictures made it look like a fall version of a mint green, but it doesn’t really strike me as a mint in person. It’s a bit of a strange color, but I like it. :-)

Application was very good. Two coats and a top coat shown.

Merino Cool

This color is a bit harder to describe, as it seemed to change depending on the lighting. I saw it as being a lavender/grey/beige. It reminds me of Sephora by OPI’s Metro Chic.

Little Brown Dress

Dark chocolate crème – sounds yummy doesn’t it? This one was surprise. In the bottle it looked a bit like chocolate syrup. Tasty perhaps, but not a very exciting color. I really liked it on though! Something about it strikes me as sexy and sophisticated like a deep red, but a with a twist. It is probably not a color I would have gravitated towards on the shelf, but I quite like it! It is much more luscious in real life. The pictures don’t do it justice!

Limited Addiction

A sexy cool toned dark red crème. Some reds don’t work for me, but this red looked great on my skin tone!

Application was very good (in spite of a wiggly kitty who insisted on sitting on my lap and “helping” me). Two coats and a top coat shown.

Hey, it may not be fall yet but if I close my eyes with the A/C on I can imagine myself on a crisp fall day! :-D  Hopefully fall will wait a little while though, as I still have a few spring and summer collections to swatch and review!

What do you think of Essie’s new fall collection?
