Style Cartel is part of Essie’s new Autumn/Fall Collection 2014 and is this years version of After School Boy Blazer which was a sell-out this time last year, I couldn’t find it anywhere! It is a cool toned inky blue which is totally out of my comfort zone, I really don’t ever wear any blues or greens on my nails, preferring the warmer tones of reds, corals, pinks and purples, but I thought I would try something a little different. The formula is the same exceptional standard that you would expect from an Essie polish, and takes just two coats to get an opaque finish.
I am on the fence as to whether I like it or not, I keep glancing at my nails thinking edgy sophistication and then other glances make me think murky ink spill! I think I am gradually warming to it though, it is just a colour that I am not used to. Whatever my opinion of my own nails though, I definitely think it is a colour that many people will enjoy for Autumn and I am sure will be popular.
What do you think of this colour? Will you be picking this up?
