Arigatou gozaimasu, Essie!
How gorgeous are these six shades? I’m absolutely in love with Essie’s Fall 2016 Collection! Inspired by a combination of Tokyo’s wild street style and foliage that accompanies the cooler fall weather, the collection, a mixture of dark autumnal shades and light pastel colors, is complete with the most adorable names, like Playing Koi, Kimono-Over, and Udon Know Me.
The darker shades, reminiscent of Central Park’s changing colors, are a great homage to winter’s highly-anticipated sweater weather. If I had to choose a favorite, it would probably be Playing Koi because it’s a relatively new color for the entire Essie line.
Whoever said pastels were reserved only for warmer weather is so clearly wrong. These lighter shades are a great way to add a pop of color when when wearing darker hues and thicker knits. I’ll definitely be rocking these shades throughout the fall season.
Since I’ve been rocking a darker shade for the past week, I decided to give Go Go Geisha a try. What better way to give a girly nod to breast cancer awareness?
Pray tell, which shade is your favorite from this collection?
