Essie’s gorgeous autumn collection, Dressed to Kilt, is ready for your lovin’

‘Live dangerously. Dress Flawlessly’. That’s the anthem of Essie’s autumn collection, Dressed to Kilt, a zexy little line up inspired by ‘espionage and the thrill of the chase’.

Sooo much of the pretty!
Sooo much of the pretty!

For me, ‘cos I pretty much live and die in red polish when the chilly season sets in, Dress to Kilt is the hero of the bunch.

Dressed to Kilt

I pretty much live and die in red polish when the chilly season sets in so, for me, Dress to Kilt is the clear hero of the bunch. It’s this gorgeous, super shiny maraschino cherry red that only needs two coats to hit full impact.

Another winner is this boy…

The Perfect Cover Up
The Perfect Cover Up

This is a hard colour to describe – kind of like a teal mixed up with grey – but I really, really like it. Again, it’s nicely pigmented and super shiny, but the real pull factor here is that it’s just so ‘different’ and chic-looking. My mom thought so too which is why it’s now living in her room in Port Elizabeth.

I couldn’t wear Fall in Line (too camo) or Take it Outside (it washed me out)  but quite liked these two darker hues…

..and…

Style Cartel

The only downer here is that they’re hard work. You really need a steady hand ‘cos every mistake becomes super visible. Also, if you get Style Cartel on any skin, zipping it off with a q-tip isn’t especially easy as it’s a bit stainalicious. For those reasons, I’m going to be slicking on Dress to Kilt until I hit the bottle’s end. I’d then happily buy more of it (the biggest compliment a blogger who gets too many things for free can give) but will then move on to Essie’s winter collection that just so happens to contain not one but two reds. Ooh la la, darlings!

Keep an eye on the blog as I’ll be sure to cover that too when they launch in July. In the meantime, if you’ve spotted a gem in the autumn collection that’s calling your name best you get on down to Dis-Chem, Clicks or Foschini as well as selected beauty salons. Each shade’s going for R125 a pop.

Love, love
