Twinsie Tuesday-Neutral

Hello fellow polish friends, welcome to Tuesday.  I hope everyone is having a great week so far.  I am really enjoying this Fall weather.  There's just something about the cooler temperatures and coziness that makes me feel good about this time of year.  I also am looking forward to the many upcoming holidays, especially Halloween.  I know it's over a month away but time seems to be flying quite quickly recently, especially September!  

Today's TT theme was neutral and I went a little out of the box, well for what I consider neutral at least.  I originally would have gone with an opaque nude, which are my all-time favorite neutrals but I ended up going to a Fall-themed color because technically we are in Fall now :)  I also just filmed my Fall polish picks a few days ago and this happened to be one of them, but it remained unswatched, and that just wouldn't do!

Essie Angora Cardi got picked for a specific reason, because to me, it reminded me of the 90's Kylie Jenner lip trend that has been blowing up all over the internet, just in nail polish form.  I'm not sure if I'm bold enough or skilled enough ;) to pick out a lip color for myself, so I went on the hunt for a polish that I thought embodied the trend.

Angora Cardi is a deeper mauv-y plum pink with a hint of dusty brown.  It's a cream formula and as far as Essie or any other polish is concerned, it applied like a dream.  I wore this one over the weekend for two days and had no problems with chipping or tip wear.  For my swatches I used two coats with topcoat.

I was very pleased with Essie Angora Cardi and I found it to be my little secret way to incorporate the Kylie Jenner lip trend....just in nail form.  Although this polish does have color to it, I think it's neutral enough for just about any occasion!
