“Take it Outside” by Essie is another polish from their Fall 2014 Dress to Kilt Collection. If you’re not a fan of dark colors like Partner in Crime, this beautiful, fresh taupe, soft shade may just be a perfect Autumn/Winter pick for you.
One thing that I absolutely love about Essie is their clever way of naming their polishes. That must be one cool job to have, coming up with such neat and fitting names for a nail polish :) . “Take it Outside” is a subtle, yet sophisticated shade that is just perfect for that summer into winter transition. I used to think that gray and taupe-y shades were a bit boring, but my love for them has definitely grown over the last few years. “Take it Outside” has hints of pink it, making it so easy to wear and I think that due to those pink hues this shade compliments my skin tone beautifully.
As always with Essie polishes, the formula is rich and creamy and the staying power is strong. I think that this color is especially work/office friendly. It’s delicate, but chic at the same time.
