Get your nails Dressed to the Nineties

There no secret I am a 90s person (late 90s, I’m not that old). I’m secretly unashamed of the terrible fashion sense and even worse – makeup habits I had at the time.

Also no secret I love nail polish, especially when they come from essie.

So obviously I am head over chunky heels with the essie Dressed to the Nineties Limited Edition Fall 2017 collection, hitting the shelves at the end of August 2017.

The six gorgeous shades fleet between pinks and purples with the right amount of shimmer and shifting.

My favourite, surprisingly, is silvery metallic with a light purple shine Girlie Grunge; just gorgeous and rather neutral for its shade. As they say, come as you are. Oh, and shine.

As I am a sucker for colour shifting, I could not stop myself loving Dressed to the Nineties, a very dark purple with a subtle green-blue shimmer. Gorgeous.

At the moment, I have the mega pretty As If. This powdery periwinkle is warmed up with a hint of red, and it’s the most gorgeous thing.

On my toes for weeks now is the “staple with a difference” Knee Highlife, a deep wine red with some purple undertones.

For the more discreet out there, Saved by the Belle is a lovely baby pink, creamy and a slight blue undertone and Mixtaupe is a fabulous warm ivory with a tiny dash of pink.

As you can see, pinks, reds and purples tie up the collection together, warming or cooling the tones for those exclusive shades full of cool, relaxed vibes, fit for office and party.

Of course, I cannot rave enough about the essie brush, which delivers a perfect at home mani so effortlessly. Lately, that is all you see on my nails.

Also worth remembering that the colours are curated by essie’s Global Colour Designer Rebecca Minkoff, so you know you’re gonna be up-to-date.

The collection has barely launched but being the lucky bitch I am, I was one of the first to get my talons all over it and I’ve already wore four of the six shades to near exhaustion. Nah, not really, I can’t get enough.

The too cool for school Fall 2017 collection is available from the 23rd August to the 17th October in Superdrug and 30th August to the 26 September in Boots. After that, it’s hasta la vista, baby, to all of these fabulous shades. As if! you gonna let this lot go 😀

Nails fit for Autumn

essie-autumn16-nail-polish-review - 1As 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.

essie-autumn16-nail-polish-review - 2Six 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!

essie-autumn16-nail-polish-review - 4They 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.

essie-autumn16-nail-polish-review - 5On 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).
