So, since one of the OPI España nail polishes I 've ordered doesn't want to arrive to me to swatch and review it, I figured I should start the fall '09 nail polish theme with Essie.
Namely Angora Cardi.
Angora Cardi is the one shade from Essie's fall collection I instantly fell in love with.
It's a mauve-y/plum colour that looks really gorgeous on, sadly my table lamp doesn't do it much justice. In fact, it's a bit more muted in real life and in my eyes it makes an excellent shade for fall!
Being quite the purple nail polish fanatic that I am, I 'm very glad I added this gem to my collection, as it's not only a lovely shade - it applies really well and turns opaque in 2 coats without streaking.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone, especially those Metro Chic lovers out there, since Angora Cardi is definitely in the same "dusty" family! :)
Sadly though, apart from Angora Cardi, nothing else caught my eye from this collection (yay for my balance)!
Mink Muffs looks very similar to You Don't Know Jacques, which I already have and Chinchilly is this weird greenish grey, that I just can't imagine having on my nails (but if anyone has tried it, please let me know what you think).
Midnight Cami is a dark shimmery blue (and I 'm still much in love with my Chanel Blue Satin to move on to another deep blue colour) and the two neons wouldn't be my usual fall choices, although I do like the idea of a couple of brights in a typical fall collection.
So, please let me know what you think of Essie's fall collection!
Will you be trying or have you already tried any of these shades? :)
