Last but most definitely not least in my Essie Fall series comes Power Clutch. Much as I love Very Structured, Lady Like and Carry On, I think this one just might be my favourite of the Autumn Mini Collection as it’s unlike any colour I’ve worn before…
Like the other shades, Power Clutch changes quite a lot according to the lighting. Most of the time it looks dark blue toned green, with a slight duskiness – as in the first pic above. Sometimes it looks welly boot green, with an almost greyish tinge – as in the 2nd ^ and 3rd pics.
Believe it or not I only applied one coat for these pics. Partly out of sheer laziness as I redid the photographs (the first set looked a bit untidy) and partly to illustrate the amazing opacity of this polish.
These last two pics were taken away from direct light, yet you can still see how glossy the colour looks. I love that this colour is a little bit different… still rich and glamorous but with a little more edge. And a refreshing change from the blues and navys I’ve seen a lot of this season.
A quick round up of the Essie Fall Minis….
Power Clutch is available as part of Essie’s Fall Mini Collection 2011 (4 x 5ml) at Beauty Bay for £11.95 inc UK p&p.
