essie Fall 2011

essie's  fall collection is based around the love of  classic handbags with names like Carry On and Power Clutch. The shades are all cremes, mostly subdued , polished looking and ladylike. They're also very fall like.

My favorites are Carry On, a deep wine and simply pretty, Glamour Purse, an almond shade  as I love nudes  and beiges and this is not quite nude but a bit deeper and Very Structured , the most unexpected shade here as it's rust.

 I bet rust is one you don't have in your stash. In my considerable stash of polish going back, yes, 20 years I can think of one orange- rust frost, and one toffee with a hint of rust, Toffee Twist from Revlon.  They are out there I am sure but it's just not a shade you see a lot of. I don't think it's one that everyone will gravitate to either, but I like it because it's different, it matches my coloring and not everyone else will be wearing it. It's also very fall and very 70's feeling to me.

I hope to get some images of a few shades on my nails soon, but I can tell you that they run very color true to what's in the bottle .  For now we  have the whole new line in their bottles to ogle.

Shade list:

-Carry On- mulberry merlot
-Glamour Purse- almond Blush
-Case Study-camel beige
-Power Clutch-darkest green
-Very Structured-burnt sienna
-Lady Like -demure pink
