essie leathers collection by Rebecca Minkoff

Today I’m introducing the essie Leathers Collection by Rebecca Minkoff. This collection is paying homage to essie’s Global Color Designer Rebecca Minkoff and her leather handbag line. All of the polish names have something to do with the RM line from ‘Back in The Saddle that references her iconic saddle bags to ‘Toteally in Love’ which hints at the amazing selection of tote bags in her line. To say that this collection is spot on with current fall fads would be an understatement. Leather is all the rage right now in fashion trends so it makes sense that this trend should make its way to our fingertips! Check below to see these leather polishes on the nail and what all the hype is about!

Why I Live a ‘Polished’ Life 

I think that a lot of times when I tell someone that I have a blog about nail polish or that I spend all of my free time obsessing over the latest essie collections and nail art trends they think why? I think that a natural reaction to this is to be confused and to wonder what it is about nail polish that could captivate someone so much so that they would have over 300 bottles and are continuing to grow their collection weekly.

#essiebuffDIY – Pumpkin Edition

Yesterday I was in the mood for crafting so I decided that I would start on my second installment for my #essiebuffDIY series! Seeing as its October I knew that I wanted to do something that incorporated the season and Halloween. I decided to make some essie inspired pumpkins that I could use for decoration around my house during the fall season. This is a fun DIY because you can make the pumpkins have whatever design/saying that you want on them and use whatever colors you want to personalize them to your own style. Take a look below to learn how to make these personalized pumpkins yourself!

essie fall collection 2017 ‘As If’

The Fall Collection is finally here! I look forward to the release of these six polishes more than any others during the year! This is partly because fall is my favorite time of year and also because I always feel like the essie team kills the Fall Collection and creates some of their most gorgeous and iconic shades for this particular launch each year. I was definitely not disappointed as all six of these lived up to my standards and essie came out with another GORG collection. These shades were based on the 90’s and honestly this collection couldn’t be more perfect for me because I’m a 90’s baby. Scroll below to see swatches, comparisons, and an in depth review of each polish.



From left to right: ‘Mixtaupe’, ‘Saved By The Belle’, ‘As If!’, ‘Knee-High Life’, ‘Girly Grunge’, and ‘Dressed To The Nineties’.
