Stylenomics (stahyl-NoM-iks), noun: opulent color that lends an upscale look without breaking the bank.
Essie’s Fall 2012 Collection IS all that AND more! I have been drooling over all the sexy and vampy colors that are available for this Fall, and these were no exception. I was SO excited to receive Skirting the Issue (slinky and subversive burgundy) and Stylenomics (on the money opulent green; also the namesake of this collection).
To be frank, I can never have enough maroons/burgundy/deep reds in my collection. They are classics, and look great no matter WHERE you are. It’s probably one of the ONLY haute colors that is also appropriate at school/work. The formula of Skirting the Issue is interesting. It’s a crelly, but if you peek into the bottle, it looks like a gorgeous jelly. I love how it builds up to the perfect burgundy upon each coat – I used 3. And, once you add a thick, rich top coat, it looks like an unbelievably STUNNING jelly. Love.this.so.VERY.much.
Stylenomics is a FAB blackened emerald green. It definitely is “on the money” when it comes to color! It’s really hard to tell in the photos, but it’s extremely gorgeous. Its formula is perfect and is a creme. I loved it absolutely! It was pretty much opaque in 1 coat, but I topped it off with a 2nd just to be sure! A nice top coat on top made it lovely!
Essie has such a fashion-forward line. I always look forward to their pretties coming out. This collection will be out September 2012 salons and beauty destinations worldwide! I am especially looking forward to trying the neutrals in this collection!
