Essie Power Clutch

Essie Power Clutch 885. Smokey grey creme with green undertones. Well-pigmented, full coverage in two coats. 

Power Clutch is from Essie's Brand New Bag collection released for Fall 2011. Don't you just love the name of the collection? Makes me want to splurge for a new bag right now hehe :)

This is another great colour to wear for Fall, it's the only polish I picked up from the collection because I find it truly unique and I didn't have anything like it in my stash. However, I still stood at Superstore for a good five minutes debating whether I should get it when I have a gazillion untrieds waiting for me at home haha. I couldn't bring myself to put it back down on the shelves so here it is! Thank goodness for the $2.00 off coupon so I don't feel as bad!

Did you pick up any goodies from the Brand New Bag collection? And while we're at it, I'd love to know what your favourite bag is! :)


  1. You have such gorgeous pictures! <3 And the polish itself is amazing also :)

  2. Really pretty! I love these kind of colors :)

  3. Ella- I totally agree! I still have it on right now, it's so pretty!

    moonchild- Aww, thank you so much! You totally made my day! :)

    LimitedAddictionNails- Me too! I love wearing dusty shades in the fall.

    Veronica- Haha I can't stop looking at my nails cuz it's so pretty. The polish dries to a glossy finish even without top coat! Loveeeee

  4. Ohh - love that color so nice for the fall weather. I never knew Essie made dark color nail polishes I am only familiar with the light ones like ballet slippers and waltz. Thanks for sharing.


  5. I couldn't help myself and got the fall mini cube set, which includes power clutch. This is a unique color, which I don't have in my collection, thanks for the awesome post. BTW, the purple bag really brings out the greyness.

  6. Great photos! Power Clutch is my favorite from this collection.

  7. rock-or-not- Thanks!

    Thu- Haha, I totally know what you mean! Essie is known as the queen of sheers. All their colours are rather on the work appropriate and safe side until a few seasons ago when they began introducing more unique and fun colours.

    Rozae- Thank you so much! I thought the bag would make a good complement to power clutch but my bff didn't think so. I'll have to show her your comment haha!

    KarenD- Thank you! I totally agree, the other colours just don't stand out quite as much eh?

  8. Beautiful picture I hadn't really wanted power clutch until right now!

  9. beauxs mom- Aww, thank you! You should definitely go pick one up, it's a very lovely colour. :)


Thank you for leaving a comment! :)
