Essie 2010 Fall Collection

December 04, 2011 | , , , , , , ,
I recently purchased a set of four Essie nail polishes from OzSale. The set comes from the 2010 'Fall Collection' and has four amazing colours. The four colours are ones that should typically be worn in Autumn/Winter but I just got the set and no one can stop me wearing them!
Left to Right: Little Brown Dress, Limited Addiction, Merino Cool
and Sew Psyched
Poorly painted nails in (sorry) - one coat

and Limited Addiction
The four colours included in the set are
  • Little Brown Dress described as 'beguiling black coffee'
  • Limited Addiction described as 'racy garnet red'
  • Merino Cool described as 'sensuous autumn mulberry' 
  • Sew Psyched described as 'cashmere-soft sage pewter'
From what I can tell, all four colours are a part of Essie's regular collection and are not limited edition. 
Each full size Essie nail polish is 15mL. These Essie nail polishes are 5mL each. In my opinion, 5 mL is a good size for a nail polish - How often do we actually finish our colours? 

All in all, I really like these nail polishes. I love each and every colour but Sew Psyched and Merino Cool are definitely my favourites. My only issue for this set of nail polishes is the formula. When applying a coat of each for the photos (it only arrived yesterday and I haven't had a chance to properly do my nails yet) I felt that the polishes were possibly a little too thick for my liking. If this is the case I will add a few drops of nail polish thinner and all will be good. 

Anyway ladies, I'd definitely recommend these colours (individually or in the pack) to any female, especially one who likes fairly neutral looking colours, as opposed to bright/fun colours.

What are you favourite colours? Do you have any other Essie polishes you can recommend? 

Always look your best,
Sophie
