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

‘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

‘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?

  • Happy #MothersDay to all of the moms out there! 💐💕 It’s tradition that I give my mom a manicure every year and this year she chose @sallyhansenca Freesia Fancy from the new Complete Salon Manicure Petal Soft collection (we’re totally 💅🏼 twinning)! My favourite thing about doing this is that there is no need to go to a busy, loud salon for some pampering- plus it's SO easy with the precision tip brush. It’s a great way to share something that I love with her while spending valuable time together and relaxing at home 💆🏼‍♀️🌸 #completesalonmanicure #ad #petalsoft
  • Have you tried plant-based retinol? 💧💜
This duo is supposed to hydrate, smooth and soften overnight leaving skin as soft as a ☁️— just started and so far I really like it, although the fragrance is v strong.
