essence Vintage District trio

Hello polish people!  I was able to find the new essence Vintage District collection polishes at my local Shoppers Drug Mart the other day! They don't always get new collections in so I was pretty excited. And for essence being carried in Canada, Shopper's is the only store I can find.

VINTAGE PEACH is a brown toned peach. Darker then what most of us would refer to as a peach. I liked the shade but found in certain lighting that is looked a bit weird with my skin tone. I used 2 coats with a coat of Seche Vite. I found that the formula didn't quite self level all the way. It needed the top coat to help with that. Pics taken outdoors in sun.

ANTIQUE ROSE is a darker, dusty, muted pink. Full coverage in 2 coats. Again, didn't quite self level all the way. You'll see a few bubbles in the pics, but that is actually from the top coat not the polish itself. Pretty colour. I think this would be flattering with most skin tones.

SHOPPING @ PORTOBELLO ROAD is a dusty teal blue shade. Not really sure how to describe it actually. I also have no idea where the name comes from either. Doesn't seem to fit with the previous two. This was another 2 coater and evened out better then the previous polishes. Please note that I just did quick swatches so I'm not sure if this would stain your nails or not. I'm terrified of trying new blue polishes for this reason!
