Essie Fall 2017 Collection: Review and Swatches
For this fall, Essie is taking a page from the '90s with a brand new six-shade collection inspired by the age of cassette tapes and washed out jeans. Whether or not you've lived through the decade of boy bands and grunge rock, the Fall 2017 Collection has some gorgeous shades to offer. I've got review and swatches of all six to share with you so to read on, click......

Mixtaupe:
A unique off-white with a hint of taupe, Mixtaupe is decently pigmented but slightly thick and patchy. I had some trouble getting an even and opaque coverage with two coats so I used three in my swatches below.

Saved by the Belle:
This is a simple baby pink. Again, although the formulation is not too sheer, I had trouble getting an opaque coverage with two coats so I had to use three instead.

Knee-High Life:
A gorgeous deep wine red, Knee-High Life appears a lot pinker in the bottle but wears much warmer on the nails. The formulation is nice and even so I only needed two coats for an opaque coverage.

As If!:
Hand's down my favorite shade out of the collection, As If! is a unique gray-blue that reminds me of washed out jeans. The formulation is just a dream! It's pigmented, even, and super smooth.

Girly Grunge:
A soft silvery lavender shimmer, Girly Grunge is another very pretty shade. The pigmentation is great and although the finish is slightly streaky, I only needed two coats for an even coverage.

Dressed to the Nineties:
Last but certainly not least is this super deep violet that appears almost blue on the nails. The shade has an even sprinkling of fine green/blue micro shimmers. Out of the six, Dressed to the Nineties is probably the most pigmented color. Two coats give a beautiful and even coverage.
