When it comes to nail polish the most important thing to me is long wearing, and chip resistant. I find myself gravitating towards Essie, OPI, Chanel, China Glaze, Revlon, Wet n wild, Sally Hansen the list could go on. I normally don't just buy one specific brand, just depends on what I'm looking for. Essie, and OPI are around the same price $6-10 at some places and I thought that was a lot but Chanel's are around $25, Sally Hansens, and wet n wild are anywhere from $1-5. I still haven't gotten my hands on any Julip, or Butter polishes although, I will be keeping my eye out for a few of those that are on my wishlist.
Nail polish has always been something I've loved, but the last few months I've been really obsessed. Its kind of sickening, as my collection grows I tend to find myself buying so many of the same colors. (pinks) As I was browsing my collection I noticed most of my polishes are Essie and OPI. I mainly love these two brands because most of the time, their formula's are pretty average some are even great, most are highly pigmented and the most important the lasting power is a lot better then most with an occasional flop as any nail polish, but their always coming out with something different. Although the colors might be similar to many other older colors, or other brands they still have such a wide variety for just about anyone.
As fall arrives my main excitement is the fall nail polish colors. This last week all I've been thinking about is how gorgeous the colors are in the new fall collections of Essie, OPI, and Chanel. (I'm sure many other brands are coming out with new fall colors)
I've been eyeing the Essie Fall collection for the past two weeks dropping in every grocery store, Target, RiteAide anywhere that sells Essie to see if they have any of the new colors. Well for starters the only place I've spotted some (Walmart) they had two colors left with very few. Sadly the color that I've been eyeing wasn't their but I was fortunate to get the deep burgundy color carry on.
OPI has also came out with a newer collection for the fall, as well as a Halloween collection, but those don't seem to rock my boat. I really haven't heard to much buzz on these as I have the essie but we still have time I mean we still have 3 weeks of summer for Christ's sake. In this collection the only one that I've purchased so far was My address is Hollywood its a gorgeous pink coral.
Last but not least I was super excited for the Chanel Collection to debut mainly because of Peridot. When I first seen this color I immediately had to get it. To be honest I have probably 5 greens in my collection and never worn any. This time I'm venturing out of my pinks, nudes, and more pinks. Its time to take a step out of my comfort zone and this is wear it all began.
For more a list of names & colors
The colors in the Essie fall collection is named "my carry on has a handle on style" and the colors are:
beautiful burnt orange
very light taupe
very elegant mauve
The names are just to cute! That's my favorite part of the whole collection.
OPI's HUGE Touring Across America collection is consist of:
Although, these three colors are not all of Chanel's Fall collection. These three are what stood out to me the most. Although two of which you could find many dupes of.
Peridot is getting the most buzz and is instantly selling out everywhere so I couldn't resist on not getting my hands on that one.
As you can see metallic's, and glitters are definitely in for the fall. Grey's, burgundy's, nudes, and oranges are always a fall favorite. Their's just so many ways to create your own style. To be honest theirs really something for just about anyone. Even the bores like me who could always wear pink.
What are your favorite fall polishes?
