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.

  4. 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!

  11. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  18. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  19. 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.

  20. 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!

  29. 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!

  31. 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,

  35. 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.

  36. 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

  39. 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. :)

  47. 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!
