Essie Stylenomics Collection Swatches

Good evening! Essie recently came out with their fall line: Stylenomics. I thought some of the colors were nice, but they looked like colors I owned or have seen before, so instead of buying full-sized bottles, I bought a cube of 4 minis. The set included Don't Sweater It, Stylenomics, Head Mistress and Skirting the Issue!


Below I did 2 coats of each color. I apologize for the last 2 photos; my light box wasn't cooperating!

 Don't Sweater It is a light brown creme with a tinge of gray in it. I didn't really like the formula of this, unfortunately. I figured it'd be the best, considering the other 3 are darker shades, but I was wrong! I like this color, but I feel like its been done a million times and the formula turned me off a bit. I probably will use it, though.

Stylenomics, the namesake of the collection, is a dark green/teal, almost black creme. The formula on this was pretty good! A little thick, but manageable :). I don't really wear black polish, so I'm not sure how often I'll wear this, but I like it nonetheless!

Head Mistress is a sheer, red creme. I was least excited about this shade, but it is my favorite out of the 4! The formula was thin, but still great for a red! I will definitely be wearing this during the fall :) This reminds me of last year's Size Matters, also by Essie!

 Skirting the Issue is a sheer, wine creme. This was my second favorite of the bunch! The formula was also thin like the last polish, but very workable!

What do you think of this collection?

  3. I *almost* picked up Stylenomics, but I'm going to have to pass on it now since it looks too dark! I love all the others though! Great swatches :D

    1. Thanks, Jennifer! I'm not a huge fan of super dark colors, so I'm glad I didn't get a full-size of that color!

  5. I am not a big fan of black polish, but when I saw my trainer wesring "Stylenomics", I liked it. Then she told me thatit was really a dark green. Since then, I bought it for myself. i like it as a base for a couple of green glitters that I have.
