Essie Say it ain’t Soho

Hey everyone! Today I’m going to show you another fall collection – Say it ain’t Soho from Essie. The collection is inspired by New York City, which you can tell from the names of the polishes. I haven’t been to New York City, but I really want to go. Until I visit at least my nails can get a taste of the big apple with this collection.

This is one of the best fall collections that I’ve seen from Essie. I love the darker muted shades and I think that they’re perfect for this time of year!

I have to say that I’m really impressed with this collection! All six shades are pretty much one coaters. Sometimes we’re lucky to get one or two one coaters in a collection, but not a whole collection like this one – good job Essie!

My favorites from this collection are Fall for NYC and Say it ain’t Soho, both polishes are perfect for fall, and pretty unusual shades for Essie.

Essie Leggy legend

Leggy legend is one of my favorite polishes from last fall! It is a gourgeous gold/copper metallic polish that covers in two coats.

I wanted to make an autumnal manicure with Leggy legend as the base, and this is how it turned out. I used stamping plate BP-19 from Born Pretty Store together with Licorice from Essie to create the leaves.
