Mani Monday: Essie Fall 2019

It’s officially sweater weather with six limited edition nail polishes from Essie with the fall 2019 collection.  “It’s time to get back to your roots and explore the home grown countryside with the essie fall 2019 collection of six autumn nail polish shades. As the leaves begin to fall and the outside air becomes crisp – it’s official, it’s sweater weather. These limited edition nail polish shades are guaranteed to leave you on the bright cider.”

Essie Fall 2019 Collection

Essie Fall 2019 Collection

Essie is one of my favorite nail brands partly because they do really good seasonal collections.  They build a color story that really represents a feeling, trend, season!  Because of that I decided to google the fall collection 2019 and I barely found any IRL’s, swatches, etc and I was a little shocked.  The ones I did find convinced me to head over to CVS and see what they had.  I intended only to pick up one shade but after seeing the colors, the theme, the names I couldn’t leave without at least 3.

My top picks:  Hay There, Sweater Weather, On The Bright Cider

My top picks: Hay There, Sweater Weather, On The Bright Cider

The top 3 I picked were 3 colors I definiltey did not already have in my collection.  Hay There, a fall yellow, caught my eye first.  Its a perfect color to transition with.  On The Bright Cider, the color of apple cider, became a must-have for my Apple Hill fall outings.  Sweater Weather, a metallic green, which is the most out of my norm.  It was also the last bottle in this color at the store and from the reviews I read it was the one that everyone liked best so I grabbed it too.

With those names how can you not pick up one... or three!?

These 3 shades were my September mani colors.  Usually I stick to my pinks, berries, reds but I’m glad I got something out of my comfort zone.  Sweater Weather got the most compliments from strangers haha.  Its kinda alien, kinda fall, kinda shimmery.  I see Sweater Weather being a really fun color for Halloween too!  These 3, well the whole collection really, go so well with the fall trends… menswear, 70’s vibe, plaids, neutrals, marigold, denim… Now the question is do I need the other 3 shades from this collection!?  I really like the other three for all my other fall activities, visit to the pumpkin patch, friendsgiving, regular Thanksgiving, etc.  I think I just answered my own question 😉

 

Nailed It: Lilly Pulitzer for Target Essie First Timer

I can’t stop.  Something about this Lilly for Target that just has me obsessing!  Especially in the Essie collaboration on the coordinating nail colors.  You already know I’m head over heels for Borrowed and Blue (as seen here) but I’m totally smitten for Essie First Timer too!  Now this shade I already owned from when it was originally released for resort 2013.  Since I’m obsessing over this Lilly for Target line I figured it was time to pull out First Timer.

What I love about this shade is that it’s bright but not too bright, green but not too green and creamy oh so creamy!  It has a great aqua tone to it so the green isn’t to green.  I forgot how much I loved this shade!  It’s just the pop of color I needed!  I love it just clean on the nail, no need for nail art or an accent nail (not that Essie Gold Nuggets from the Lilly Pulitzer for Target collab wouldn’t look GREAT as an accent nail).

Lucky for me I scored this Lilly For Target Upstream Jumper in my size as a return!  I love the navy and white print paired with Essie First Timer.  I also found this super cute paper fedora in the dollar bins (only it was $3).  I think I have the perfect Memorial Day outfit with these 3 together!  Thanks #targetstyle

Did you pick up any of the Lilly For Target Essie Collaboration Shades?  I’ll say it again these shades are all you need for your spring and summer mani/pedi needs.  I just can’t get over how smitten I am with this Lilly for Target collection.  I totally should be pleased with what I got but I can’t stop.  I’m just throwing this out there… I’m totally ISO’ing for the plazzo pants (boom boom, my fans or fan dance!) and maybe the Upstream Pom Pom Shorts and maybe the Boom Boom Satin dress aaaaaand that super cute lemon juicer and stir sticks.  My gosh I can’t stop!
