Essie Fall 2018 review

Top Row (L to R): Fall for NYC, It Takes a West Village, Stop, Drop & Shop
Bottom Row (L to R): Booties on Broadway, Empire Shade of Mind, Say It Ain’t Soho

Fall is my favorite season and this year it was very special, as Essie kindly sent me 5 out of the 6 polishes for free! It was an exciting moment for me for sure. Opinions on these polishes remain my own and independent of any PR-promotional influence.

Fall for NYC

Fall for NYC is a bright, pumpkin-y orange that has a smooth, creamy formula and applies beautifully. Less pumpkin spice and more pumpkin itself, this orange is nonetheless an excellent fall color.

It Takes a West Village

It Takes a West Village is a lovely dusty mauve/lilac shade for a bit more color in your fall palette. I really enjoyed wearing this one! Two coats for perfect coverage.

Stop, Drop & Shop

Stop, Drop & Shop is a bright mulberry shade with gorgeous crimson tones. I love these types of warm red shades for fall and this fits the bill perfectly. Two coats. 🙂

Booties on Broadway

Booties on Broadway is an amazing navy shade with a bolder blue tone than your average navy. A bright cousin to Afterschool Boy Blazer. Absolutely love this one and the shine on it!

Empire Shade of Mind

Empire Shade of Mind is a smooth, gunmetal metallic with nary a brushstroke in sight! Amazing for a metallic. I thought this was a strange inclusion for a fall collection, but this shade does look amazing with fall colors such as olive, mustard, and burgundy.

Say It Ain’t Soho

Say It Ain’t Soho is a fantastic orange metallic with jewel-like tones. An absolute stunner and the embodiment of that PSL life!

This collection has some stunners, with Booties on Broadway, Stop, Drop & Shop, and Say It Ain’t Soho as my personal favorites. I’m looking forward to wearing them again next year!

Did you pick up any from this collection? What were some of your favorites? Let me know in the comments!
