Nail colour of the week


Oooh all the new Fall colours in today when I zoomed down to get my nails done. Essie's new collection is inspired by handbags. Whatever. I picked Power Clutch (great name) which is a gorgeous grey/blue/green. Yes, it's all those colours depending on the light. It is nice to have a more muted colour on as I've been having a colour-fest lately.

A quick review of the other colours:

I loved Carry On, a deep, almost black purple.
Very Structured is a weird orange, like terracotta. Not wild about it.
Case Study is odd, sort of beige. Not sure what to make of it.
Glamour Purse is gorgeous, a nice subtle choice.
Lady Like - nice enough pink.

You can see them all in more detail here.

Ooh, nice! I like Carry On, but I'm not brave enough for anything that dark on my fingers and Glamour Purse is beautiful. I think I want that one.

Before I read your review I looked at the Essie site and chose Carry On and Glamour Purse too! They're just beautiful! Good choices! xx

Be brave sow! I am liking Carry On but in retrospect it's a bit too green to be honest. I wouldn't choose it again.

Well I have already been on line and ordered Carry On and Glamour Puss. But I thought Carry On was the mulberry colour? Not the green? Or have I got that totally wrong?! x

Cover Girl said...

You are correct and I apologise for my tiredness combined with two glasses of wine last night! I was thinking of Power Clutch. Carry On is the deep purple one. xx

Just received and tried my two new nail varnishes. I am in love. Glamour Purse is, I think, currently my BEST nude shade (as you know, I have many). And Carry On is a stunning deep mulberry with a hint of brown in certain shades. Actually nicer than Chanel Rouge Noir - which is too blood red for certain outings. A bit too vampish (yes, I believe there is such a thing). But Carry on, oh me oh my, it's a gorgeous dark red I think you could wear on any occasion. Thank you Cover Girl - another coup! xx
