Earlier this month, Essie released one of their new fall collections, Yogaga, a 'fitness themed' line of polishes featuring the following six soft, calming and, mostly neutral, shades:
* Boxer Shorts: A winning blue.
* Gym Dandy: A motivated grey brown.
* Marathin: A fit rosy pink.
* Pilates Hottie: A zen like lilac.
* Spinning Again: A driven brick red.
* Yogaga: A peaceful sandy beige.
While Essie describes 'Marathin' as a rosy pink, I personally would describe it as a dusty, neutral pink with both brown and purple undertones. This polish is super creamy and well pigmented, requiring two light coats for an opaque, super glossy finish (you could get away with one thicker coat if preferred). I love love love this colour for fall, but believe it will also work nicely for spring, summer and winter.
This periwinkle blue polish with grey undertones is definitely my favourite from the collection. 'Boxer Shorts' is unlike anything I currently own appearing more blue than Essie's 'Lilacism', and more purple than Essie's 'Lapis of Luxury'. Like Marathin, this polish is very pigmented and creamy, allowing for an opaque finish in just two, fairly thin, coats. This colour is one I would most likely wear during the spring and summer months, however I can see it working nicely during the earlier part of fall.
