As a lover of all colours on my nails, I am not one to say there are summer and winter colours, but let’s agree that some colours for better in certain season.
And taking about fitting, essie has launched their beautiful Autumn 16 collection, inspired by the beauties and energy of Tokyo and its changing autumnal landscapes.
Six extremely wearable shades (it’s not always that a full collection feels like that to me) will take you through the new season.
I feel the gorgeous stony blue Udon Know Me and pretty Go Go Geisha are the perfect transitional colours, being a more sober shade of pastel. And boy, do I love a winter pastel!
They are gorgeous alone or mixed. Follow that up in your season timeline with a shade I fell in love with: Now and Zen, the perfect safe grey.
Now, all stop for the hero shade of the collection, Kimono-Over, a mesmerising deep damson plum shade, super dark and delicious.
On the warmer spectrum, a classic berry shade, quite vivacious, Maki Me Happy and the biggest surprise for me, Playing Koi, an almost vibrant bold orange rust colour, which looks amazing on my nails.
Essie’s colour director Rebecca Minkoff says that she wanted the collection to be a snapshot of her experience in a beautiful city at one of her favourite times of the year. I think she succeeded!
The essie Autumn 16 collection is now available at Superdrug and Boots (see ted shops and online) until late October (yes, it’s limited!) and each bottle costs £7.99 (RRP).
