Essie Merino Cool NOTD

It's Autumn here in Sydney which means I should be moving onto more muted tones as the cold weather (slowly) hits. It doesn't really stop me from wearing bright colours though but I AM very much looking forward to wearing all the lovely darker hues! I was very kindly provided with a bottle of Essie Merino Cool which is from their Fall 2010 collection and has been recently released for Autumn here in Australia. I needed a classy, chic colour for my delicious lunch at Tetsuyas on Saturday and it was the perfect colour for the occasion!

Merino Cool is a gorgeous colour that's described as a "sensuous Autumn mulberry" which looks almost taupe in some lighting. My darn camera would not capture the shade properly though so my apologies. Think a darker and more purple colour than my pics. I find myself really liking these purple/grey/beige shades more and more now so expect to see these colours on my blog more often =)

The formula was perfect making application an absolute breeze. Merino Cool has to be the easiest Essie polish I own to apply so I am very happy! Unfortunately I find the formula on some of the colours Essie have in their collections to be quite streaky and in need of multiple coats. 2 thickish coats were all that was needed for opacity which is pictured. It dried to a high gloss shine and I didn't require cleanup at at all. On a side note I didn't do any nail art at all for this NOTD can you believe it??!

Essie Merino Cool can be purchased from Myer stores nationally for $18.95.

A big thank you to Julia for providing me with this product! I was sent the above product to sample but this in no way influenced my review in any way. As always, my reviews are my 100% honest opinion.

What are your favourite shades for Autumn/Fall?

    I agree with your Essie comment, I have 'SEW PSYCHED' and I feel like it's kinda streaky. =/ One day I'll have to try 'Merino Cool". :]

  15. @tiffyama: I couldn't agree with you more! It's the perfect Autumn shade. It's unfortunate that the polishes can be streaky as the colours are so gorgeous. I find it's usually worth the pain in the end because of the gorgeous colour!
