NOTD: Essie Fall 2018 Nail Polish Collection in Empire Shade of Mind

Two coats of Essie Fall 2018 Nail Polish Collection in Empire Shade of Mind. Charcoal Silver Metallic.

I'm not gonna lie, when I saw that Essie had released this shade for autumn, the first thing that went through my mind was metallic silver? for fall? why? And no, that reaction wasn't based on the fact that I have a love/hate relationship with silver polishes {because I do}; it just felt like it didn't fit with the season. But then I put it on, and saw that it wasn't your basic silver, but a charcoal silver. A fall-apropos hue that felt perfect yet unexpected. But I digress...

Empire Shade of Mind is a vampy shade for the girl who wants something deep without entering oxblood, ebony, or navy territory. It's smoky and seductive in a seriously sophisticated way. And really, who can resist that? Formula was flawless. You can reach opacity in just one coat; but I went with two to try and conceal brushstrokes. Get it girls!

NOTD: China Glaze Ready to Wear FW'18 in Throwing Suede

Two coats of China Glaze Ready to Wear FW'18 Nail Lacquer Collection in Throwing Suede. Putty Creme.

Where do I begin?

Throwing Suede is an interesting shade. It's not white, it's not nude; it's more of an in-between vanilla hue with a subtle rosy undertone that is v pretty and will capture the hearts of those who love a clean, neutral nail. For me, however, I found it a bit...boring.

I'm not going to lie; the formula is good {decent consistency, and quick coverage}, but overall I feel as if it's meh, and just doesn't do anything for me. I think this would look best on a darker skintone, as it would really standout. If you're not a fan of neutrals, pass on this one. Womp womp.
