essie Fall 2018 Collection Swatches and Review

Hi guys! For today’s post, I am sharing the brand new essie fall 2018 collection. If you’d like to see all six shades swatched and hear my thoughts on this collection, then keep on reading. 🙂

“with the refreshing autumn energy of our shades, you’ll fall for NYC faster than a NY minute. it takes a west village for a wardrobe refresh. so throw on your new leather jacket, say it ain’t soho, and stop, drop & shop. you’ll be sashaying in your fringe booties on broadway and stepping right into an empire shade of mind.” – essie

‘it takes a west village’ (shop this shade here) this light mauve purple banded with subtle gray tones has us reminiscing of this colourful part of town. – essie

‘stop, drop & shop’ (shop this shade here) attention all shoppers. get your fashion fix in a new york minute in a metropolitan mulberry red polish. – essie

comparable essie shades: ‘angora cardi’,

‘booties on broadway’ (shop this shade here) cue the spotlight and raise the curtains! this dark navy blue polish gets us on our feet. – essie

comparable essie shades: ‘after school boy blazer’

‘fall for NYC’ (shop this shade here) this mustard yellow nail polish with marigold highlights has us in love with the big apple and hailing good times. taxi! – essie

comparable essie shades: ‘taj-ma-haul’

‘say it ain’t soho’  (shop this shade here) the downtown commute is so worth the traffic for a fashionable, shimmering metallic copper nail polish dripping in crisp amber tones. – essie

comparable essie shades: ‘leggy legend’

’empire shade of mind’ (shop this shade here) uptown, downtown or crosstown- this asphalt metallic silver nail polish sizzles in any of the concrete jungle’s neighbourhoods. – essie

comparable essie shades: ‘no place like chrome’

The super creamy & smooth formula paired with their new easy glide brush made it a breeze to swatch this collection. The only shade I had a problem with was ‘booties on broadway’ which stained upon removal. I believe that this collection is officially launching in September but I just got word that it is available in stores already in Canada, as well as online. They also have a cute mini kit that you can snag here. My two faves from of this collection are ‘fall for NYC’ and ‘say it ain’t soho’ – which shades will you be picking up?

  • Here is our kitchen, I’m SO obsessed with how it turned out!! I wanted to share a sneak peek of the renovations Ryan and I have been doing for the past year in our first home 🏡, it’s been one of the major reasons I haven’t been posting as much on here but I’m happy to report that we are finally almost done! Also thinking of doing a house tour, let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in?
