The temperature is slowly cooling down, the night arrives noticeably earlier, and this can only mean one thing: the transition from summer into winter is right around the corner. With fall starting next week, I just couldn’t help but buy at least one of the Essie polishes from their Fall 2014 Dress to Kilt collection. Okay, so I bought two…. today I’ll talk about “Partner in Crime”.
Even though I’m not much for the rules such “you can’t wear white after Labor Day” or “pastels are reserved for summer”, I have nothing but love for a clean, rich and dark mani on a cool, autumn day. “Partner in Crime” by Essie is just that, a rich, deep, dark and beautiful color. When I first saw it, I sort of went “meh, boring”, but then I thought that I most certainly must be missing a deep brown color from my collection (my husband would beg to differ, he constantly tells me that most of my nail polishes look exactly the same, but then again… he’s a man and doesn’t know the difference between hot magenta and fuchsia).
“Partner in Crime” by Essie is a creamy, deep dark brown with rich mahogany undertones. In certain lighting it looks almost black, but it’s much less intimidating than “Licorice“. Natural, direct light (sunlight) brings out those deep mahogany notes out, and makes the shade appear a bit more red-brown. I absolutely love colors like this one, the formula is dreamy and opacity is just as amazing, two thin coats was all I needed and the finish was so glossy I almost didn’t have to use a top coat (I did apply it though, just for the sake of using it, hah!). “Partner in Crime” is simply a gorgeous, vampy and rich color which makes it an ideal nail polish for fall.
Do you love it as much as I do?
