Essie Fall in Line from the Fall 2014 Collection is a dusty, tranquil green with a few drops of grey mixed in.
Depending on the settings of the screen you’re viewing this on, it may look blue, but, in person, it definitely leans more on the green side than the blue.
I just couldn’t get enough of it, and I wore it for several days straight. And when I removed it, I considered wearing it for a consecutive manicure! *Gasp* That pretty much never happens.
But then I looked over at the other nail polishes smiling up at me with hopeful eyes. How could I neglect them? 😉

Essie Fall in Line Review
Fall in Line by Essie is a dusty green that has a cozy vibe to it. For me, any green falls in my Comfort Zone, and this one is like a fuzzy angora sweater that just makes you feel good when it’s chilly outside.
This shade is sophisticated and mellow, so I think that even those who aren’t used to wearing greens or ‘unconventional’ shades will find Essie Fall in Line easy to wear.
It acts like a neutral, so you can rock it with so many different outfits, and all the while, it remains classy.
You know how I usually go bonkers over loud, obnoxious, and even tacky shades, but I still can appreciate and love colours like this, which are laid-back and more grown-up. 🙂 It’s fun to be able to oscillate between playful and serious polishes. (I think that’s why nail polish is so interesting. We don’t have to be confined to a single colour family. We can run the gamut and explore all colour territories with eyes wide open!)
This creme nail polish is a prime example of how Essie is a master at creating this type of finish. It’s smooth and very creamy. It is simple and to-the-point, so the colour is the star of the show.
Another great thing about creme lacquers is that they’re also a cinch to remove. No scrubbing your nails raw. It comes off easy and breezy…hehe, although, if you’re like me, you’ll be sporting this for a long time, and you won’t want to take it off!
Application & Formula
Application was wonderful because Fall in Line by Essie went on without any hassles. It was smooth, and two coats were enough for me to reach full opacity. (I tend to use medium coats out of habit, but even if you use thin coats, the formula is so pigmented that I think you can still get exceptional coverage with two thin coats.)
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
WOW – I really loved wearing this nail polish! Although there’s no fancy finish and it’s not a loud colour, I found myself really drawn to the simplicity and elegance of a more muted green than what I’m used to wearing.
Hehe, maybe it’s just a sign that my tastes are maturing? 😉
Actually, in general, I’ve found that my tastes are changing quite a bit recently, so maybe there’s more to it. For instance, I’ve been constantly wearing pencil skirts. In the past, I used to really dislike skirts that had hemlines that fell even remotely close to my knees! But now, I just don’t want to wear any skirts other than pencil skirts! Haha, what’s happening to me?
If you aren’t used to wearing green nail polish, I feel like Essie Fall in Line would be a great entry-level choice because it’s classy while still giving you editorial colour. 🙂 Try it, and join my love for green nail polish! 😉
What ‘entry-level’ nail polish made you dive deeper in love with a certain colour family? What are you looking forward to doing this fall? Can you believe it’s already October? (Time flies!)
