Essie Fall 2011 Collection Mini Set

I bought this a couple of weeks ago from for £11.95 here. I was debating just picking up Very Structured but I love Essie minis so went for the set instead. This was the best price I could find and they had free delivery. I'll definitely be ordering from this site again; shipping was pretty quick and the packaging was great. 

So...on to the polishes!

L-R: Very Structured, Carry On, Lady Like, Power Clutch

L-R: Very Structured, Carry On, Lady Like, Power Clutch

I've worn Very Structured (the colour came out much darker on my nails but I still like it) and I've got Power Clutch on my toes. I'm currently wearing Lady Like:

I still have to try Carry On but I love dark red/purple/plum shades anyway so I'm sure I'll like it. 

I have to say, I love all these shades! They're all pretty neutral so will go with most outfits. I thought Lady Like would be my least favourite because it looked a bit more mauve in the bottle at first but I actually really like it. Power Clutch was a dream to apply and Very Structured was a bit more difficult and streaky but still only needed two coats. I was a bit disappointed that it didn't turn out to be the rusty orange shade I thought it would be. 

I love these little mini collections because I can try lots of different shades and since I already have a huge nail polish collection, the fact these are only 4.5ml bottles makes me feel slightly less guilty for adding to the stash! One of the reasons I like Essie minis in particular is because they're still easy to use; the brush is pretty much the same as the brushes on the full size bottles and the lids are easy to hold.

What do you think of this collection? Will you be picking anything up?

  2. I definitely recommend it! I used to find Essie a bit hit or miss but the three from this collection I've tried are all pretty good :) Thanks for reading!xx
