After seeing all the great reviews for the Essie fall collection it wasn't long till I caved and placed my order. Unfortunately Zuneta.com were sold out of the in Stitches shade so I picked Demure Vixen instead.
For nail varnish I tend towards brands that don't contain DBP, Formaldehyde and toluene and the newer Essie formula's do not contain these supposedly toxic ingredients.
The shades are (£9 each):Velvet Voyeur (very dark purple), Limited edition (Medium juicy red), Merino Cool (mix of cool purple/mauve/grey) Sew Psyched (Cool toned sage green with faint shimmer ) and Little Brown dress (extremely dark cool toned brown).
Now you may think to yourself that I just splodged the colours on and I concede I did, I'd like to believe that one day I would learn patience and do it nice and neatly..
Little Brown dress:
The formula is not at all thick, indeed more runny that I am used to. I need two coats to get the desired finish, I would say wear is as average, I don't fare that well with nail varnish, must be all that hard work I do...
The obvious stand outs are going to be Sew Psyched and Merino Cool as they are a little different from the norm.
Here is Demure Vixen, its a light mauve with a very subtle iridescence.
