Essie Style Cartel

Essie Style Cartel coverThe Fall 2014 Essie collection has landed and I could not be happier! Not only does it mean football season is near it also means cooler weather is just around the corner.

This year Essie’s collection is called Dressed to Kilt (good pun Essie) and includes 6 polishes that are perfect for fall.

Style Cartel was the first to catch my attention. I love dark blues and Essie has a track record of putting out fabulous dark blue polishes (I’m looking at you After School Boy Blazer and Midnight Cami).

This polish, though it can seem very dark, isn’t navy or purple leaning which makes it different from dark blue  polishes from past seasons.

The formula is very pigmented so careful application is required. That being said, I found the formula easy to work with and used two coats in my swatches.

The Dressed to Kilt collection is currently available at Ulta as well as on Amazon. Style Cartel is also included in the Color Cube mini set for the Dressed to Kilt collection.
