Essie All Tied Up: Summer 2012 Collection

Essie All Tied Up Summer 2012

Essie All Tied Up is a burnished bronze with a gold iridescent finish and dusky pink undertones, which falls more naturally into an Autumn collection in my view.

I got lots of compliments when wearing this, partly because it’s so unusual I think. This polish had the smoothest formula of the three I tried and applied perfectly in two coats. These photographs were taken in evening light and the top left image was taken in the shade.  The gold shimmer is more obvious in daytime sun or under electric light, though it tends to add shine rather than look overtly gold.  This is quite a ‘grown up’ kind of shade, lovely for daytime without looking too OTT or in your face and I’ll definitely wear it most in Autumn.

The other two shades I swatched from this collection were Bikini So Teeny and Mojito Madness.

Essie All Tied up is £10 HERE

Is it just me or is anyone else starting to look forward to Autumn? Bring on the tan boots & cosy scarves!
