Do I really need more reds, deep wines and dark purples?
Yes, I do. It’s a need. A very deep-seated, aching need.
All nail polish lovers understand this feeling.
My non-need for similar shades notwithstanding, I bought the Essie Fall 2015 mini set because I wanted to see how the fall shades fared on my nails.
Leggy Legend is a toughie to describe. It’s like someone melted down U.S pennies and add a pinch of turmeric.
Sorry, I dunno why I come up with these weird comparisons.
It’s not the same as OPI Brisbane Bronze, which is more brown. LL applies nicely and doesn’t leave major brush strokes.
With the Band
A staple red creme. Pretty, but not unique. It applies nicely and is opaque after two coats.
It looks a little more orange here than it actually is.
In the Lobby
A darker berry burgundy creme. This one was not quite opaque after 2 coats, but it’s still a favorite color family of mine.
Frock n’ Roll
In the bottle, Frock n’ Roll looks like a dark, grungy purple, but on my nails it looks charcoal black. It contains silver shimmer.
As you can see, it suffers some tip wear after a couple of days.
I think my favorite one of the bunch is Leggy Legend. The color is fairly uncommon, it applies smoothly, and leaves a nice finish. The others are skippable.
All swatches you see here are two coats.
