Essie nail polishes are a standard of quality and feature great formulas paired with decent brushes. Their products come in a big variety of colors that to me always seem classic and effortless. Each season they create more colors that are part of the current trends. But my favorite 3 Fall nail polishes by Essie are the ones below and I want to share them with you! <3
A big plus of being a nail polish hoarder is that you can always find trendy nail polishes in your collection. So don't be surprised if you see some old school colors - I believe that reusing old shades is just as good as buying new dupes.
Let us begin with the timeless classic - Thigh high. Every girl needs red nails in her life, thou most girls don't go for a shade like this - I always do. I adore the fact this polish is a mix of micro glitters that come in gold, dark red and magenta. They form this deep red beauty before you. For this swatch I applied 2 coats and a top coat. I am just sad since I remembered just now that I should have also made some swatches with a matte top coat.
Next I have Luxedo. This is one of those goth colors I adore - when you apply it you can see it is something special. It is not black but a very deep, dark bluish purple. But the more coats you apply the darker it gets and it contains pure pigment, no shimmer, dark as the night. For this swatch I used 3 coats, I could have stopped at 2 but I wanted a very dark result.
The brush is like the other two - flat and thin, the bristles are a bit on the hard side, but I like it a lot since application is very easy and the nail polish is always distributed evenly.
Lastly here is Chinchilly a unique and hard to photograph grey. Thou I love the fact that Fall is a time for dark colors I need a break from time to time and something like this is perfect. Chinchilly is a mix of beige and grey, it has a little bit of both and is neither at the same time. Once more it is a perfect cream polish with no extra shimmers or glitters. Naturally this was the least opaque of the bunch, it needed 3 very thick coats.
I hope you liked some oldies - goldies swatches. If you like them or if you like this brand don't forget to visit them on their social media where they always post all their new product announcements.
