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.

OPI Peru

This year’s fall collection from OPI takes its inspiration from Peru. My favorite collections from OPI are their spring and fall collections because they’re always inspired by a place, (this year’s spring collection was inspired by Lisbon) which gives so much inspiration for nail art designs. The Peru collection consists of 12 creme polishes and at a first glance it may not look like a typical fall collection becasue there are many lighter and colorful shades. After swatching the collection I have changed my mind – the collection is colorful but the shades are muted not bright. And anyway who say you should only wear darker shades in the fall?

I usually don’t include OPI’s press pictures of the collection in my blog posts, but this time I had to! I love the cozy vibe they’re giving and they make me like the collection so much more!

I got the polishes in the Infinite Shine formula and this is the first time I’m trying a whole collection in this formula.
Infinite Shine is a 3-step system which will last up to 11 days of wear and the polishes dries super shiny! The formula of the Infinite Shine polishes is really good and they made the application super easy.

This is the first time I’m trying Kinetics polishes and I’m very impressed! They all cover really well in few coats and they have a really good rounded brush that makes the application super easy.

My favorites shades from this collection are Pretending pink, Berries on ice and Kind of blue. One thing I love about fall polishes is the contrast of the dark shades against my pale skin.
