Not only am I a nail polish addict, but I'm also highly indecisive so mini collections are literally a godsend for me. They give me the chance to 'sample' more of the colours before deciding if I want to buy any in full size. This year's Essie Fall 2013 mini-cube contained all the colors I wanted to try out from the full collection, that never usually happens to me! The other two, not included are a navy blue and a red, but to me they were the least interesting shades.
Top of my list to try was For The Twill Of It, a grey with pink to green duochrome effect. This one reminds me of spilt oil, it's got such a broad color shift and looks even prettier in person. I had actually been interested in getting Peace & Love & OPI, but after a bit of research I found out the two are exactly the same.
Second on the list of colors I wanted to try out was The Lace Is On. It's a jewel toned purple with fuchsia shimmer. I'm saving this one for a mani on it's own with some kind of glitter accent, I'll show you how it turns out in a seperate post later this week.
The other two that come in the set are Vested Interest, a teal green and Cashmere Bathrobe, a grey with a slight grey shimmer. Both of these are cream formulas and apply smoothly and easily. Although I do like the colors, there's nothing particularly wow for me about these two, but they do tie in well with the flashes of colour you see in For The Twill Of It. Using the three together makes a more interesting manicure, and is the obvious choice for indecisive people like me :)
You can purchase the Essie Fall 2013 Collection cube online from Nordstrom or Zappos.
