It’s fall fashion made for your nails – Essie’s fall 2013 collection has got it all for you this season. Her latest collection is a mix of glossy shades and metallic dual shades.
For the Twill of it is my favorite shade from the collection. I thought I should start with my favorite first this time. It’s a metallic dual tone of magenta and gun-metal. I love the way it reflects in the light, changing from one shade to the other. At times you can even get a glimpse of a greenish metallic tone as well.
Vested Interest is some what of a murky green color. It reminds me of floral – you know that green cube at the bottom of a flower bouquet vase. It’s also slightly reminiscent of OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques with a little bit of olive mixed in.
The Lace is On – a lovely metallic magenta shade. It goes on smooth and evenly. I noticed that the metallic shades were easier to apply that the glossy polishes.
Cashmere Bathrobe is one of the darker shades in the fall collection. It has a glossy finish with a faint metallic shimmer. It’s like a darker version of Vested Interest.

Well I suppose cold weather is creeping up on us again -_-
I get excited about fall fashion, but not about the temperature dropping. Oh Summer, why must you leave us so quickly! As the days get shorter, some beauty brands are well into their fall product launches. My nail salon has stocked up its fall collection and this week I decided to try OPI Keeping Suzy at Bay from their San Francisco collection.
Keeping Suzy at Bay is a glossy deep ink blue – it’s like a pen exploded on my nails! I wasn’t ready to rock a dark burgundy yet – just like we don’t wear white after labor day, I don’t wear burgundy shades before it! This blue works for an end-of-summer-look because even though it’s a dark color, it still has a pop of brightness. It reminds me of a beautiful summertime night sky. Great color, can’t wait to try more from this whopping 15-shade collection.

This September Estée Lauder is set to launch its newest fragrance – Modern Muse, a glamorous scent with notes of jasmine and woods.
The first accord combines a mix of mandarin, tuberose, fresh lily, honeysuckle nectar, dewy petals, jasmine sambac and jasmine sambac China absolute. Two different forms of jasmine are used to create a layered effect that helps the fragrance last longer, kind of like when you use fragrance matching bath wash and lotions. The second woody accord features a mix of patchouli, Madagascar vanilla, amber wood and soft musk.
Modern Muse will retail for $58 (1 oz.), $78 (1.7 oz.), and $98 (3.4 oz.). The matching body lotion and shower gel will launch in October.
An Estée Lauder fragrance has been long over due. Their last major fragrance launch was back in 2003, when they debuted Beyond Paradise.
