Beauty Edit:Essie 2013 Fall Nail Polish Collection

Dear Essie, why do you have to keep coming out with the most amazing collections? Even though every season I say "ok no more, Claire you have enough!" I still just can't help myself.

Meet the newest additions to my Essie collection.

Essie Fall 2013 Collection
Essie For The Twill Of It Nail Polish
    Essie Fall 2013 Mini Set
  Cashmere Bathrobe
The Lace Is On
For The Twill Of It
Vested Interest

Instead of buying all the nail polishes in full size I thought I would be (a bit) more economical and buy the mini set, because who ever finishes nail polishes anyway!

 I must say the people who put together this collection definitely did their job well, I love and would wear every single shade. My eyes literally lit up when I opened the box. The first colour that stands out to me is For The Twill Of It. I know OPI recently did a colour quite similar, it's a gorgeous purpley green metallic foil colour that's really hard to describe, so I'll just leave it there, haha.

The Lace Is One is a pretty shimmery fuchsia, Cashmere Bathrobe a shimmery dark grey and Vested Interest a grey creme that has slight green undertones.

As well as the mini set I also picked up two full size polishes, Twin Sweater Set is in my opinion the epitome of autumn, a gorgeous deep red creme that sits comfortably between true red and dark red. If you're a bit intimidated by dark colours but want something with a bit of warmth, this baby is for you. (FYI I currently have this colour on and it's stunning, opaque in 2 coats, nearly 1)

After School Boy Blazer had definitely been setting the blogging world alight over the last few weeks, who knows it might even reach "Mint Candy Apple" status. This navy polish looks almost black but in some lights the blue shines through. I'm always after the perfect navy nail polish and this might just be a contender!

Swatch wheel time!
