One coat of Essie Fall 2018 Nail Polish Collection in Booties On Broadway. Navy Blue Creme.

My first navy of the season and I am feel. ing. it.

Babes, Booties On Broadway is the color if you dig dark and decadent. It has that vampy feel that is TDF for the chillier months, and legit pairs perfectly with everything! Formula here was fabulush! It's creamy and dreamy and reaches opacity in just. one. coat. Not gonna lie, it likes to get flirty with your cuticles, so keep a Q-Tip around to wipe away any unwanted messes. Loves it!

NOTD: OPI Peru Nail Lacquer Collection in Como Se Llama?

Two coats of OPI Peru Nail Lacquer in Como Se Llama?. Burgundy Creme.

Burgundy polishes during the months of November / December just get me. I mean, they're so incredibly glam without being in your face, amiright?!

Como Se Llama? is a brown-leaning burgundy that looks like melted chocolate on the nail {yuuum-o!}. The formula is easy breezy to work with {leveling beautifully and requiring two easy swipes for full coverage}; but has the potential to stain cuticles during application if you're not careful - so keep a Q-Tip nearby. Perfection for fall and well into the winter months!

NOTD: China Glaze Ready to Wear FW'18 in Pleather Weather

Three coats of China Glaze Ready to Wear FW'18 Nail Lacquer Collection in Pleather Weather. Gray Matte.

Yes, you read the right; this baby is a matte. Unfortunately...I wasn't feeling it in matte form so I added top coat to give it a glossy touch.

Babes, I may like this color, but...the formula! Ugh! Total nightmare! Pleather Weather {love the name btw!} legit has the thinnest formula I have ever seen! We're talking nearly transparent on first coat thin. Yes, it does build nicely; but the color isn't a total wow, so I can't say that it was really worth it. This one's a pass IMO. Womp womp.

OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Mini 4 Pack Swatches + Review

Babes, I was the biggest fan of The Nutcracker when I was younger, so when I saw that OPI had partnered with Disney for a nail collection I had to pick-up The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Mini 4 Pack! Thoughts? 100% obsessed with all four colors, and you're about to see why!

Dazzling Dew Drop is a Glimmering Gold Shimmer. Babes, you all know that I'm not a gold girl when it comes to manis; but this! This one I love {or maaaybe it's just the spirit of the season fooling me into thinking that?}. Aaanyway…Dazzling Dew Drop is the perfect shade to move you from your holiday hangover into the throes of the new year! The yellow gold shading is bright and sparkly in a way that doesn't compare to other golds; while the easy breezy formula is exactly what you need if you're looking to polish in a pinch! Though light in hue; this one reaches opacity super fast, and is simply gorgeous to look at. Get it girls! This is 2 coats.


March In Uniform is a Navy Creme. Tbh, I'm kiiiiind of navy-ed out after all of the navy hues that popped up in the fall and winter collections this past year; but I'm still loving this shade because it's the tiniest bit different from the rest of the blues out there. March In Uniform is a rich shade that is perfect for the chillier months; but what makes it special? It actually leans blurple, so it has a multifaceted feel. Though definitely dark; I found that it applied slightly thin, making two coats a necessity. Definitely a must if you're looking for a shade that's not your basic navy. This is 2 coats.


Tinker, Thinker, Winker? is a Sparkling Silver. Winter is the one time of year I go wild for silver shades; so you know I simply couldn't resist this shimmering stunner! Tinker, Thinker, Winker? feels like a winter wonderland on your fingers! It gives off a frosty and enchanting vibe whenever it catches the light, and pairs perfectly with pastels and sequins. The formula is thin {one coat would serve as a nice, sparkly topper to other colors}; but builds to opacity fairly quickly. If you're looking for a way to extend the holidays for a few more weeks, this bad boy is the key! This is 3 coats.


Dreams Need Clara-fication is an Icy Blue Creme. Le sighmints and baby blues always got me like whoa, and Dreams Need Clara-fication is no exception! Babes, this blue was made for the winter months! It has that bright yet pastel vibe that pairs beautifully with everything in your wardrobe - from lights to darks. Formula is perfection. Yes, it takes multiple coats for full coverage; but it's well worth it because the consistency is brilliant! This is 3 coats.


AVAILABILITY: Ulta.

PRICE: $14.50 for the 4PC Mini Set; $10.50 for each full-size bottle.

China Glaze Ready To Wear FW'18 6PC Micro Mini Nail Kit Swatches + Review

I live for fall nail collections because all things autumn are my jam; but none this season have impressed me as much as China Glaze's Ready To Wear FW'18 6PC Micro Mini Nail Kit. Babes, this collection is the. bomb. dot. com. The shades are brilliant, and I honestly cannot get over how perfect the formulas are. Get ready to be obsessed!

Mustard the Courage is a Mustard Yellow Creme. Le sigh. I don't know what it is about the autumn season, but it makes me covet these ugly pretty, pretty ugly nail colors like whoa; and Mustard the Courage is one of the prettiest ugly colors I have ever laid eyes on! Mustard is massive this season - and Mustard the Courage has got. you. covered. This bad boy is the quintessential shade for fall {and Thanksgiving!}, bringing the haute feel of all things harvest to your fingertips! Formula here was easy peasy lemon squeezy - applying flawlessly in two simple swipes. Babes, this is one beauty you need in your life. Trust. This is 2 coats.


You Don't Know Jacket is a Deep Navy Creme. Gotta love a deep, dark hue for winter, amiright?! You Don't Know Jacket is one of those looks-black-but-isn't navy blues. It's deep and dark and utterly delicious, with a formula that is f-l-a-w-l-e-s-s. A lot of polish clings to the brush, so make sure to wipe it well on the lip of the bottle before applying directly to your nail. This shade gave full coverage in one coat; but I opted for two to make it ultra-vampy! This is 2 coats.


Swatch Out! is a Pale Copper Foil with Silver Shimmer.
Harvest hues are giving me all of the heart eyes rn! Babes, Swatch Out! is my pick for Thanksgiving mani. The color is blindingly beautiful, and def falls into that spicy, pumpkin-apropos category.

Whether you do it for the bling or just want a new take on an autumn mani you legit need Swatch Out! in your life. Trust. This is 2 coats.


Central Parka is an Olive Green Creme. Can I just take a moment to rave over the ultra-amazing formula that is Central Parka?! Like omg babes, this bad boy is pure awesomeness! Central Parka is another one of those ugly pretty/pretty ugly hues that I personally l-o-v-e for sweater weather. As I mentioned before, the formula is pure perfection; but even better is that gorgeous, glossy finish. Absolutely obsessed with this baby! This is 2 coats.


Pleather Weather. Gray Matte. Yes, you read the right; this baby is a matte. Unfortunately...I wasn't feeling it in matte form so I added top coat to give it a glossy touch. Babes, I may like this color, but...the formula! Ugh! Total nightmare! Pleather Weather {love the name btw!} legit has the thinnest formula I have ever seen!

This is 3 coats.


Throwing Suede is a Putty Creme. Where do I begin? Throwing Suede is an interesting shade. It's not white, it's not nude; it's more of an in-between vanilla hue with a subtle rosy undertone that is v pretty and will capture the hearts of those who love a clean, neutral nail. For me, however, I found it a bit...boring. I'm not going to lie; the formula is good {decent consistency, and quick coverage}, but overall I feel as if it's meh, and just doesn't do anything for me. I think this would look best on a darker skintone, as it would really standout. If you're not a fan of neutrals, pass on this one. Womp womp. This is 2 coats.

You're the Shade That I Want bridges the gap between playful pink and va-va-voom vixen that makes it feel sophisticated yet sassy. The formula is positively brilliant!

Soooo...pink may be my favity-fave color; but it's not always my top pick for nail shades because it can feel a bit...boring at times. Pink Ladies Rule the School is a game-changer for me.

This pink leans more medium than pastel in tone, making it feel perfect as a transition shade from summer to fall. Though the formula is rich and creamy, I have a tendency to do light strokes, so I did need three coats to achieve full coverage {read: stave off VNL}; but it was so worth it! If girly shades are your thang you need this pretty lady in your life!

Essie Fall 2018 Mini Nail Polish Collection Kit Swatches + Review

I don't think I've used an Essie polish in over a year now, so when I spotted the Fall 2018 Mini Nail Polish Collection you know I clicked Add to Cart without hesitation! Babes, this quartet is everything for autumn through winter, with season-apropos shades that will see you through all of your soirees in style. Let's take a peek at the pretty, shall we?

Say It Ain't Soho is a Metallic Copper. Gah girlenas! I have found fall in a bottle and it is glo-ri-ous! Say It Ain't Soho is the polish pumpkin spice latte dreams are made of! The color is deep, rich, and decadent - perfectly encompassing the very essence of all things autumn. Even better? The formula is every bit as flawless as the captivating color. Say It Ain't Soho could easily be a OCW {I opted for two}, and applies like. a. dream. Legit want to wear it forever and ever! This is 2 coats.


Stop, Drop & Shop is a Mulberry Red Creme. Yaaaasss, yaaassss, yaaaassss! Babes, finally we have a lemming! Is it just me, or are all fall reds practically identical? But this...this color right here is as necessary for autumn as your beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte. Stop, Drop & Shop is a brilliant brick red meets rusted brown meets burnt pumpkin. The formula is a bit thin, but easy to build; and can be runny if you don't wipe the brush off on the lip of the bottle before applying the color to your nail. Deal breaker? Definitely not! Loving this one for Thanksgiving ladies! This is 2 coats.


Booties On Broadway is a Navy Blue Creme. My first navy of the season and I am feel. ing. it. Babes, Booties On Broadway is the color if you dig dark and decadent. It has that vampy feel that is TDF for the chillier months, and legit pairs perfectly with everything! Formula here was fabulush! It's creamy and dreamy and reaches opacity in just. one. coat. Not gonna lie, it likes to get flirty with your cuticles, so keep a Q-Tip around to wipe away any unwanted messes. Loves it! This is 1 coat.


Empire Shade of Mind is a Charcoal Silver Metallic. I'm not gonna lie, when I saw that Essie had released this shade for autumn, the first thing that went through my mind was metallic silver? for fall? why? And no, that reaction wasn't based on the fact that I have a love/hate relationship with silver polishes {because I do}; it just felt like it didn't fit with the season. But then I put it on, and saw that it wasn't your basic silver, but a charcoal silver. A fall-apropos hue that felt perfect yet unexpected. But I digress...Empire Shade of Mind is a vampy shade for the girl who wants something deep without entering oxblood, ebony, or navy territory. It's smoky and seductive in a seriously sophisticated way. And really, who can resist that? Formula was flawless. You can reach opacity in just one coat; but I went with two to try and conceal brushstrokes. Get it girls! This is 2 coats.

Babes, Grandma Kissed A Gaucho is such. a. beauty. Like, I can't even! The formula here is super thin due to the fact that it's a seriously scrummy crelly; but it builds to opacity so beautifully, and leaves a gorgeous shine behind. I'm going to say it: if you're only allowed one purple in your polish collection, it should be this bad boy!

OPI Peru Nail Lacquer Collection Mini Pack Swatches + Review

I live for fall nail colors; so, of course, I couldn't resist grabbing OPI's Peru Nail Lacquer Collection Mini Pack! Not gonna lie, some of the shades felt like a stretch for me in terms of autumn-apropos hues; but on the nail they are all absolutely brilliant, and perfect for summer to fall or fall to winter. Peep the prettiness below!

Grandma Kissed A Gaucho is a Purple Crelly. TBH despite the fact that purple is a fall color; I found that it was a shade included in a lot of summer collections, so I've been feeling kiiind of purple-d out, and wasn't excited for this shade - until I applied it to my nails and felt all the heart eyes! Babes, Grandma Kissed A Gaucho is such. a. beauty. Like, I can't even! The formula here is super thin due to the fact that it's a seriously scrummy crelly; but it builds to opacity so beautifully, and leaves a gorgeous shine behind. I'm going to say it: if you're only allowed one purple in your polish collection, it should be this bad boy! This is 3 coats.


Suzi Will Quechua Later! is a Lavender Creme. Fact: I lo-lo-lo-love this luscious lavender! Tbh, lavender is not a shade that I equate with autumn; but this one is too pretty to pass up regardless of the time of year! Suzi Will Quechua Later! is a positively brilliant transitional shade - combining bubblegum pink and purple to create this masterpiece! The formula is just as lush as the color - it applies smoothly, and has great coverage. A heavier hand could get away with 2 coats; but I opted for three to achieve the decadent shade you see here. Necessary purchase babes! Trust. This is 3 coats.


Como Se Llama? is a Burgundy Creme. Burgundy polishes during the months of November / December just get me. I mean, they're so incredibly glam without being in your face, amiright?! Como Se Llama? is a brown-leaning burgundy that looks like melted chocolate on the nail {yuuum-o!}. The formula is easy breezy to work with {leveling beautifully and requiring two easy swipes for full coverage}; but has the potential to stain cuticles during application if you're not careful - so keep a Q-Tip nearby. Perfection for fall and well into the winter months! This is 2 coats.


Somewhere Over the Rainbow Mountains is a Rosy Nude Creme. This shade! Honestly, I've contemplated Somewhere Over he Rainbow Mountains over the past few days, and I still can't figure out whether I like it or loathe it; thus, I'm going to chalk it up to a love/hate relationship. Somewhere Over the Rainbow Mountains is an interesting shade for fall - falling into the nude category; but being sliiightly darker, so it adds a bit of depth. I actually like it for autumn, as it has a cozy, café au lait feel to it; I'm just not sure if I like it on me. For those of you who are feeling it, however, the formula was primo - applying in a smooth, fluid fashion, and drying quickly. If basics are your thing, you'll dig this beauty! This is 2 coats.


AVAILABILITY: Ulta.

PRICE: $10.50 for the 4PC Mini Set; $10.50 for each full-size bottle.
