Fall is by far my favorite season. Changing leaves, crisp cool air, college football (even when your team gets spanked by the reigning national champs in a very embarrassing game)…. I love it all. I want to put on some dark lippies, nail polish and wear boots with everything!
This week for Makeup Wars we’ve decided to share our favorite fall nail polish colors. I had a really hard time deciding, so I’ve opted to show you my favorite new release color and my all time favorite color as well!
Butter London’s new fall collection includes this amazing dark blue-ish grey glitter. I have been wanting a perfect dark grey glitter, and while I have a few options (like OPI’s Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous), somehow the plain dark grey comes across as too dark and just blah on me. This shade is dark grey in about 95% of lights, but there is a little bit of blue in it (as you can see here in the closeup) and somehow that keeps it from looking flat and boring with my pale coloring.
This is 3 coats. The glitter is suspended in an almost completely translucent base, and the first coat I used was very thin, I thought I’d need 20 coats to opaque! Luckily that wasn’t the case. Use thin layers, the glitter can get gloppy quickly.
Essie Wicked is my old stand-by fall vampy color. This is my 3rd bottle. Yes, I’ve repurchased it twice! This dark red is very dark, but just not quite so dark that it looks black (it is most definitely a dark red-burgundy in pretty much any lighting). This is 3 coats.
