Essie knows we are all on a budget! The new Fall collection is inspired by our current economy. In this new economy, fashionistas everywhere are coping with the challenge of maintaining a trendy wardrobe. How do we ever do it, it’s almost near impossible!

Essie Miss Fancy Pants is a fabulous griege color. It’s similar to Essie Yogaga and it’s a great color for the fall/summer transition.  You know when dark colors kind of feel too dark because days still hit 80 degrees – but bright colors feel too bright. Creamy gray, beige, and tan nail polishes help fill in that gap of color uncertainty.

Essie Recessionista is a beautiful deep raspberry red. I think this color is so pretty, it’s rich and juicy at the same time. I love the name too!

Essie Head Mistress is a bold dark red. It’s a simple basic red nail polish. No big deal here!

Essie Skirting the Issue is a burgundy red. I had trouble getting this polish to go on evenly. The manicure looks blotchy and uneven. Not a fan of this formula!

Essie Stylenomics is a rich like money – a deep dark green. This color is so unexpected and I love it! It’s a bold statement for your nails. As you can see, this polish is super glossy and shiny. Definitely a great shade for fall.

I was feeling a bit nail venturous this past weekend and decided to get an over the top manicure. A manicure design from Nails by Kayla Shevonne was just what I needed! This color block manicure requires 5 different shades of nail color. I chose the following polishes; Color Club All Over Pink, China Glaze Celtic Sun, Essie Status Symbol, Essie Bazooka, and dark blue nail art polish.

My amazing nail tech, started off my stenciling out the sections with black nail art polish after applying a base coat to my nails. She then filled in each section with each different color. At one point we joked with each other because it felt like she was “painting by numbers”.

I love this manicure, it’s so bright and colorful. It features color blocking with a trendy mix of colors. It has the popular summer combo of pink and orange and the up and coming fall shade of deep blue. It reminds me of stained glass, I hope this mani lasts a whole week!

Penny Talk is a shiny metallic copper nail color. It’s like jewelry for your nails because it’s the perfect rose gold. Rose gold is one of hottest trends right now, makes me think of the watch I saw recently that I want/need to get! I just love this color. It looks just like the color of a brand new shiny penny, so the name is right on target. Like always, this Essie polish comes in a great formula that gives you long lasting color. Penny talk would look great in a half moon mani or as an accent nail. It also looks stunning on it’s own.

Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Gloss in Citrus is a sheer neon orange. It’s a new shade that came out this spring. It’s bright orange in the tube, but goes on shiny and sheer. I enjoy wearing it alone and it also looks great over lipstick. My favorite combo is Citrus over Coral Pink Creamy Lip Color. The Citrus really plays up the coral color in Coral Pink making my lips look brighter. The applicator is nice and glides smoothly on my lips, this gloss has a light minty scent to it. I would have preferred a citrus scent to match its name, but that’s okay.

Essie Olé Caliente  is a red-orange with a hint of pink mixed in. The picture above appears more orange that what the color really is. I added a photo below taken with a flash, I feel that this photo is a better example of what the color looks like. There is more red in it. The formula is a creamy one, so it is an easier polish to apply.  This is yet another color from Essie that fits in well with the tangerine tango trend. This shade is also like Essie Geranium because of the added red color.

What a difference the flash makes!

Cos Bar at Target Copper Polish

This one I love! The color is very pretty and the formula is great. It’s bold with just one coat, but of course I applied two. Copper is a perfect color to go with the Tangerine Tango trend. It is a burnt orange color, with a shiny finish.
Great polish for the price!

Available online and in stores. Target $3

Cos Bar at Target Lime Green Polish

The lime green nail polish looks great inside the bottle, but it takes three coats to achieve that color. The formula is very thin and runny. The first coat is barely visible and streaky. You have to make sure to apply the second coat evenly, so you don’t end up with a blotchy disaster.

This polish is a light electric yellow-green polish with a super glassy shine.  It’s an okay nail polish for the price.

Here is the full Essie Poppy Razzi Collection. All the colors are creamy neon brights. You can read my review for Essie Lights here.

Essie Camera is a bright neon coral pink

Essie Action is a bright neon yellowish-orange

Essie Bazooka is a bright neon orange

I love how all the colors in this collection compliment each other; but these polishes look dull without a top coat, so make sure to apply one to achieve the ultimate neon trend. Essie Bazooka is also very similar to Essie Orange, It’s Obvious. All in all, it’s a fun collection!

This is my take on the Tangerine Tango Look. The teal color adds vibrancy and the mix of tangerine shades helps blend everything together.

I created this look using colors from NYX  Box of Eye Shadows and Sephora Makeup Palette.

Step 1: Prep your eyes with eye cream, then apply a primer onto your lids and under eye area.

Step 2: Apply Shade 1 to your browbone. Next apply Shade 2 by gently tapping the product onto your lid. Now apply Shade 3 to your crease. Concentrate the color at the outer corner of your eye and sweep the color in towards your nose. Blend in Shade 4 starting from the inner corner towards the center of your crease.

Step 3: Liner your eye with a black liquid or gel liner. I used Loreal Felt Tip Liner. Next line the first half of your lower lashes with Shade 2.  Finally line your lower lashes with Shade 5 from the center of your eye and bringing it under your eyeliner wing.  Blend and reapply color to your browbone  if needed. Finish with Mascara.
