Essie Leggy Legend Review And Swatches

Remember the NYX Wicked Lipstick in Wrath (see picture below) I purchased last year? Well I was looking for a nail polish that would match. I usually don't match (lipstick /nails), but I felt this needed a match :S Essie just released their new 2015 Fall Collection and the shade Leggy Legend caught my eye! It's a copper, bronze metallic shade! Do you like metallics? This one is very pretty. Just one coat on my nails below and the wearing time was about 4 days. But since purchasing Essie's Leggy Legend, Zoya has released a gorgeous Cinnamon (see picture below)! I think I'm going to get it also. I thought both were similar at first, but they're definitely not! So not all bronze shades are the same or equal! >.< The WINNER of the $25 ULTA egift card or PayPal is Christina Moore (USA)! Congratulations Christina! Enjoy your prize! I sent you an email! The MURAD Giveaway is still open.

Below is Zoya's NEW Cinnamon (classic bronze metal from their NEW Flair Collection)! The Essie  Leggy Legend (above) shade compliments my NYX Wicked Lipstick in Wrath (last year's blog picture of me below), but I think the Cinnamon by Zoya matches ALMOST EXACTLY! What do you guys think? I think it's RICHER LOOKING! The Essie shade is nice, but seems to have more ORANGE/GOLD in it.

The nail color is amazing you rock that lipstick doll.

Mica T said...

Oh they both look like great bronze polishes! :)

I really wish Zoya was easier to get here! We have to order it from the US and it takes 6 weeks to arrive....but it's great polish!

I trust ESSIE but I like the Zoya one more. Fits my taste better!

Lilli said...

Yes, I remember it Kim, the Essie laquer is a perfect match with it, have to reconsider metallics on nails after have seen urs now! And the Zoya one is to die for, yes, take it! xo

Rachel-Beth said...

I love this caramel tone in both the lipstick and nail polish :) So perfect for Autumn

I've tried so many brands, but Essie polishes remains my favourite for staying power - and for colour variety. They have another, more coppery bronze shade that I've often thought about purchasing and you may just have convinced me, Kim!

Ashley said...

That nail polish is gorgoues Kim! And cinnamon one by zoya is very pretty as well. I get so excited about fall nail polishes! So many fun colors!

Darcy said...

Beautiful! I actually got a manicure yesterday and the girl was talking about this shade. IT's so pretty!!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Oh I love both of these nail colors for Fall!

Jane said...

Wow! Beautiful! Absolutely LOOVE the color and also how it looks on you! Gorgeous!!

Pilar said...

Love the nail polish color and the lipstick look pretty on you!

Lorena said...

AS much as I like the Essie - I have to admit I prefer the one from Zoya.

Jessica said...

This color is lovely. Essie is typically my go to polish. I love the colors, I am happy with the quality, and it is super affordable.

Champagne Star said...

The Cinnamon is much richer. I think I like that one better than the Essie polish, but I prefer darker shades anyway. The Cinnamon also seems more subtle and less shiny.

Shireen L. Platt said...

The funny thing is this will never be a shade that I personally would purchase but after seeing how gorgeous it look on your nails, I must have this! Great review, Kim!

Gabrielle said...

I haven't had a 'Got To Have' moment as intense as this one in months haha! This copper colour is so ridiculously beautiful - and well done on finding a lipstick that colour-matches so well.. that's no easy task! ;) Congratulations to your giveaway winner by the way.. have a lovely week!

Oh my gosh! That Zoya is such a perfect match to the NYX, Kim! I love it! Can't go wrong with this shade:)

Pamela RG said...

I like Ellie. They make wonderful colours all the time. The brown and metallic colours here are perfect for Fall.

Nerline Germain said...

Hello Beautiful!
I am not a matchy-matchy kind of girl either, but I love both the lipstick and the nail polish on you. I think you scored big, girl!
Congratulations to the winner!!

The Dragonfruit said...

Ooooh, looove this beautiful gold nail color! I need to do my nails...sigh. I say this every week -_- Haha!
And sigh, I know, I feel like I lost my chance with Mr. Josh (in reference to the hot air balloon post hehe). But there are ton of events going on in my area that I'm excited to go to, so who knows, maybe he'll turn up!

That's a very classy colour, Kim! xoxo

Coco said...

Dear Kim, first of all I adore your lipstick. I like Leggy Legend but you must get the Zoya cinammon because it's so intense and I love darker shades on metallic nails. If I know you, you are getting ready for Halloween, aren't you? Tons of love my dear! Baci,

i love this shade on you! I saw it on your snapchat and i love the color! I love deep bronzes like this! too bad my nails never last because at work I change gloves so often they chip right away! xo

jo said...

Unfortunately, I'm not too crazy about metallic nails Kim, but this colour looks really good on you! Love your lip colour too!

Julie's Lifestyle said...

Hi Kim both of these nail polishes look really nice. I like the Zoya better but that is just my opinion! Lol!
Take care and enjoy your Friday and weekend.

Marissa said...

Kim! I have missed you and your blog so much! I've had so many things going on personally that I took a step back from blogging and from reading but I am ready to get back into the swing of things and I wanted to catch up with you blog!

Love that cinnamon color on you, I think it compliments your complexion.

Happy Friday!




I do like some metallic nail colours Kim. This definitely screams fall. I don't think I have a lipstick that colour either ... well-matched indeed. Happy weekend. x

Copper toned nail polish is just what I am missing and need. Essie is one of my favorite brands. Both shades look great on your nails. Perfect shade for the fall. :)

I love Essie's Fall collections and this year is no exception! Leggy Ledgend was definitely the shade that stood out the most to me and it looks amazing on you! It's so unusual but really stunning! And I can't get over your lipstick - what a beautiful shade! I don't think I could ever get away with it but it looks so so good on you! :) I love you blog by the way, I've just stumbled across it!
