Essie – After School Boy Blazer

Essie - After School Boy BlazerFall is just around the corner! There are tons of things that mean “Fall” to me… pumpkin beer, changing leaves, late nights around a fire pit, and…. dark nail polish! I’m loving my two choices from Essie’s Fall 2013 Collection and I have a little confession… For as fabulous as For The Twill of It is – I have been LIVING in this polish, almost non stop since it arrived in my mail box.

After School Boy Blazer is the darkest navy blue creme I have – it’s almost black, but not quite. It’s inky and beautiful. Although, it is very similar to its sister polish over in OPI’s San Fran Collection: Incognito in Sausalito– they are NOT dupes. You probably don’t need both though, so it’d come down to personal preference.

The application was probably the best part – I used two coats, but you could easily just use one. It was SO smooth – it wasn’t too thin, not too thick, perfectly pigmented. Ahhh, love.

In case you missed it, a few weeks ago I was playing around with After School Boy Blazer and Good as Gold and loved the result so much that I posted it on instagram – you can also check it out below.

Happy Monday!

  1. I am with you! Can’t get enough of navy polishes. I have picked up 3 so far this fall and trying to restrain myself from getting more. There is something timeless, flattering and so fashion about them. This looks spectacular on you- I can see why you love it.
