If there is something I look forward to each season it is Essie’s season releases. Every season Essie bring out a selection of six limited edition shades that are always unique and gorgeous. Here are my thoughts on the 2016 Autumn wardrobe.


Upon opening the package I was created with a selection of three shimmer and three creams colours. Although personally I’m not a huge fan of shimmer polishes the dark, rich hues that are included in this collection are pretty damn dreamy. ‘Leggy Legend’ is a rich gold shade with an almost metallic finish on the nails. A less offensive shimmer is the offering ‘bell-bottom blues’ which I’ve worn twice already because the shimmer through creates interest without being over the top – perfect for a shimmer newb like me! If you’re after something super glitzy then ‘Frock N Roll’ is where it’s at because the deep black jam packed with silver glitz makes a serious statement on the nail.

Moving onto the creams and ‘Color Binge’ offers a bright orangey-red which is a shade I wouldn’t’ve expected in an Autumn collection however a gorgeous hue that will suit most skin tones! ‘With The Band’ is a deep red that is classic and again would suit almost any skin tone. My pick from the bunch? ‘In The Lobby’ a gorgeous deep purple shade that screams Autumn and is that typical shade I like to wear at this time of year.

In the above photo each nail swatch has been done with only one coat. As you can see most require a second for full opaqueness however with the range of gorgeous Autumnal hues you cannot look past this collection.


Are there any shades you’ll be picking up? What have you been wearing on your nails lately?

    I’m not a fan of this collection – not even the blue takes my fancy. I’ve already seen the next 3 seasonal collections thanks to other blogs I follow & I’ve got my eye on the winter & summer ones for sure (the summer collection has me drooling!), plus the new bridal collection has some great shades in it too. Really hoping we get that one in time for spring because there’s lots of nice pastel shades in it.

      Oh that’s a shame that you’re not a fan! I love them. The winter collection I have and I think it’s beautiful too. Good to know there are some good colours coming in Summer. I haven’t seen the bridal collection yet but I must check it out and hopefully find something that works for me!
