“I love the idea of creating polish that’s like the proverbial boyfriend sweater. Creating nail color with a warm and fuzzy feeling can be tricky, but when you get it right it really is like putting on your favorite sweater” – Essie
Transferring the soft volumes and rich woolens of the fall runways, these six shades are sure to make you feel warm and cozy inside!
Vested Interest – Grey / teal cream. I can definitely see myself getting tons of wear out of this color for Fall. It’s a gorgeous grey teal and I don’t have anything like it in my collection! I was incredibly impressed by the formula as well. Photo below shows two coats.
Twin Sweater Set – Vibrant crimson red cream. I feel like it’s so hard to make a unique red nowadays, but this one is beautiful! Formula again was spot on. Photo below shows two coats.
The Lace Is On – Jewel-toned pearlescent fuchsia. Pictures can’t even do this polish justice. It is GORGEOUS! The hints of purple & pink sparkle are stunning. Application was pretty good. Photo below shows two coats.
Afterschool Boy Blazer – I’m completely blown away by this deep midnight blue. I love rocking colors like this when it gets colder – Colors that are so deep that they almost look black. Out of the 6 colors in this collection, this had the BEST application. I literally only needed one coat and it was perfect.
Cashmere Bath Robe – True flannel gray with a hint of silver sparkle. I have gotten really into grey polishes lately and I am in LOVE with this dark one! Another color that will be great for Fall time and would even make a great accent nail with Afterschool Boy Blazer. Application was flawless. Photo below shows two coats.
For The Twill Of It – Purple and olive duo chrome shimmer. As soon as I saw this polish in the press release, I was so excited. I love that it can shift colors depending how you turn or look at your nails. The only downside to the polish is it’s a bit frosty so you will see some brush strokes. Just be careful and use thin small strokes. Because it’s so pretty – I’ll live with those strokes! Photos below show two coats.
The Lace Is On to set the pace for the fashion season. Go back to cool in an after school boy blazer or positively posh in a twi sweater set. While some have a vested interest in the pursuit of style, other dress just for the twill of it – and then there are those who simply want to put on a luxurious cashmere bathrobe and call it a day – Essie
Overall, I am loving this collection. A LOT. I really think I need backups because I’m a hoarder. haha! If you can get your hands on any of these, I would highly recommend them!

I saw For the Twill of It in a magazine and didn’t know if it would actually have a strong color shift — so glad to see it does!!
The Nail Files says
Ooh.. I’m a bit disappointed in For The Twill Of It. The press photo looked so beautiful & unique. On the nail, not so much, which I know isn’t your fault Jess!! Just sayin’.. I thought it would be a must have for me.
It definitely does! I was skeptical at first as well!
I just wish it wasn’t so streaky! Still super pretty though! 🙂

Really like For the Twill of It, but its not a intense as the promo pics lead me to believe. However, once again, a great set of swatches!
Very pretty! I can’t wait to get these!
I think my favorite is The Lace Is On!

I have the whole collection now, too. All because of your beautiful pic’s. I find that For the Twill of it goes on perfectly for me. I float it so there are no brushstrokes at all. So Happy they still had the two I was missing when I went back today.
