Essie It Takes a West Village 1526 is a cool amaranth pink creme, shown here in two thin coats. It has a medium-drying formula. It dries slightly darker and pinker than it appears in the bottle.

Essie Say It Ain't Soho 1522 is a copper foil, worn here in two thin coats, but one will do. It is a bit thicker than a normal Essie shade but is manageable. It has a medium dry time.

Essie Empire Shade of Mind 1524 is a gunmetal metallic. This will cover in one coat but I used two. This is a super-opaque shade that may work well for stamping. It has a strong metallic sheen but is not prone to brush strokes. Nice, quick dry time.

I feel like the Essie Fall 2018 Collection's somewhat edgy colors match its New York theme nicely. The addition of a couple metallics, one smooth and one foil, adds a nice variety. Do you have a favorite here? I am partial to deep blues like Booties on Broadway!
