Essie - For the Twill of It

Essie – For the Twill of It

Essie - For the Twill of ItFor the first time in a long time, I’m really impressed with several of the new fall collections and Essie’s For The Twill Of It is no exception – in large part to it’s namesake polish! If you read my post on OPI’s I Knead Sour-Dough, you know I was very tempted to pick up Peace & Love & OPI. I ultimately passed and decided to wait for Essie’s For the Twill of It. Dupe Alert!

Essie describes this polish as a “rich maple with reflective olive shimmer.” Hmm. Maple? I don’t know… It’s a metallic steel grey duochrome that flashes purple and green – gorgeous!Much like it’s OPI dupe, the formula is great. I used two coats – but I could easily get away with just one – and you all know how I adore one coaters!

    Lovely shade, I don’t have the OPI and I am very tempted with this Essie. I love their formula when its good.

      The formula is pretty great here 🙂

    LOVE this shade — I reviewed it . I have to say this is the first duochrome I’ve gotten and I ADORE it. The only one I like more from Essie’s fall collection is Cashmere Bathrobe! This was such a great collection — gotta love Essie!

      Nice post! I’ve had my eye on Cashmere Bathrobe! I may have to swing by Ulta and pick it up 🙂

    Wet and Wild’s Grey’s Anatomy is also very close to For the Will of It. The brush Wet and Wild uses in their fast dry bottles makes it much more messy, however.

      Agreed. I have Grey’s Anatomy – I like it well enough and the look is similar but the application makes all the difference in the world – This was an amazing one-two coater 🙂 If not for the name, I’d probably give away GA now – still might… Hmmm.

What do you think?
