NOTD: Ciaté London Mini Paint Pot in Cyclone

Three coats of Ciaté London's Mini Paint Pot in Cyclone. Turquoise to Bronze Duochrome.

If there is one thing my polish collection is lacking in, it's duochromes; so I was so excited to find this bad boy when I shopped my stash!

Cyclone is, in the words of Ciaté, the perfect storm. Depending on how you move your hand, the color shifts, morphing from rose gold to bronze to turquoise and back again. It's the perfect shift for fall! Formula is good. Not gonna lie, it's v thin; but it builds fast and easily, so you wind up with density like this after just three swipes. Loving this one for autumn!

NOTD: OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Ginger's Revenge

Two coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Ginger's Revenge. Brick Red Creme.

I know, I know, red cremes are a dime a dozen during the holiday season; but this bad boy is different. Trust.

Ginger's Revenge is a gorgeous brick red creme with brown undertones which gives it a one of a kind feel while being 100% apropos for the month of Thanksgiving. The formula here is beautiful. Though dark, it does require two coats for complete coverage. Formula, however, is flaw. less. Thankful for this beauty right here!

NOTD: OPI Nail Lacquer in Bogota Blackberry

Two coats of OPI's Nail Lacquer in Bogota Blackberry. Deep Berry Wine Shimmer.

Can we just take a moment to swoon over that lit from within glow? Le sigh.

Not gonna lie, I was expecting more of a black leaning purple hue when I saw the name of this one; but Bogota Blackberry is most def a part of the red family and I am totes okay with that!

The formula here is amazing - you could easily pull off one coat if you use a heavier hand when applying; I used two here. Staying power is fab. And the fact that there are no pesky streaks? I'm feeling it! Grab this bad boy for the holidays and beyond if you love crimsons!

Two coats of OPI's Love OPI, XOXO Holiday 2017 Collection in Sending You Holiday Hugs. Red Shimmer.

Soooo... I have an insane stash of untrieds in my nail polish collection, which is how I wound up wearing this pretty on my tips!

Sending You Holiday Hugs is brilliant if you love a romantic red with kick. The shimmer {a tdf blue-leaning shift} adds a lemming-like quality to the color; while the formula itself is ridiculously easy peasy to work with. It may be a holiday hue, but I'm digging it for year-round wear!

NOTD: China Glaze Body & Sol Summer Nail Lacquer Collection in Send Hues

Two coats of China Glaze Body & Sol Summer Nail Lacquer Collection in Send Hues. Dark Brown w/ Gold Shimmer.

Babes, I know this one was technically made for a summer collection, but I am seriously swooning over it for spooky season!

Send Hues is an autumn-apropos cocoa brown with gold-meets-orange flecks throughout that make it feel slightly spooky yet ultra chic for my favorite time of year! The formula here is super easy to work with. I found it to be v thin {almost sheer} on coat one; but that second coat brings out the richness and depth, and makes it 100% opaque. Long story short: you can't miss this bad boy!

Two coats of OPI's Scotland Infinite Shine Collection in Suzi Needs A Loch-Smith. Burnt Orange Creme.

O.M.G. babes this shade right here has fully convinced me that pumpkin spice season is 100% in full swing!

Suzi Needs A Loch-Smith is a gorgeous burnt orange creme that invokes visions of campfires and fallen leaves and scents of cinnamon and pumpkin. The formula here is positively brilliant! One coat with a heavy hand will give you full coverage; but if you, like me, use thinner coats, you'll want two strokes to bring out the vibrancy. This is one shade that I will be repeat-wearing for the entire season!

Two coats of China Glaze Body & Sol Summer Nail Lacquer Collection in Copper-Tunist. Copper Shimmer.

Y'all, this one right here is giving me all of the feels for fall!

Copper-Tunist is a copper brown shimmer with the glow appeal for those dog days of summer coupled with that cinnamon spice flair that invokes thoughts of sweater weather + crisp autumn leaves. This one is a cinch to work with, reaching opacity in just one coat {I used two to darken the hue}, and drying at the speed of light. This one is highly recommended as we enter pumpkin spice season.

NOTD: OPI Scotland Infinite Shine Collection in A Little Guilt Under the Kilt

Two coats of OPI's Scotland Infinite Shine Collection in A Little Guilt Under the Kilt. Ruby Red Shimmer.

Le sigh...this shade right here is pure heart eyes.

A Little Guilt Under the Kilt, aside from having one of the best names in polish history, is a decadent red that gives Dorothy's slippers a run for their money. The shade, though dripping with fall feels, would easily work for the coming holiday soiree season; while seamlessly fitting in to your year-round polish lineup.

If you love the vamp you see here, two coats is necessary; but if you're craving something a little brighter, a solo swipe will give you full-coverage.

Side note: does the name of this one make you think of the book Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging, or is that just me?

OPI Scotland Good Girls Gone Plaid Infinite Shine 5pc Mini Pack Swatches + Review

Ladies, y'all know that I live for fall polish collections, so I snatched OPI's Scotland Good Girls Gone Plaid Infinite Shine 5pc Mini Pack without hesitation. Though dubbed a 5 piece, two of the pieces are a Primer {base coat} and Gloss {top coat}, so you're only getting 3 colors; but the top coat + base coat are my personal ride or dies, so I'm not complaining. This right here is my first fall collection of the season, but definitely not the last. Check the polish perfection in 3, 2, 1...

Good Girls Gone Plaid is an Alluring Amethyst Creme. Good girls gone plaid...I make them good girls go, good girls go plaid... Sorry babes, I was listening to Cobra Starship's Good Girls Go Bad yesterday and had to sing the name of this polish to the tune of that track. #sorrynotsorry Good Girls Gone Plaid though billed as an alluring amethyst reads more black than purple; but that is fine with me because I'm feeling vampy shades rn. Formula here is brilliant! One swipe gets you good coverage, two scares vnl away. Bonus: chip free for 5+ days. Natch! This bad boy comes highly recommended! This is 2 coats.

Y'all, this shade right here is what Barbie dreams are made of!

Tickle My Keys is a gorgeous bright pink with subtle lavender undertones that enhance the Barbie girl feels! The formula here is flawless - two simple swipes and you are good. to. go. This one does dry down to a semi-matte finish; so if you prefer a glossy mani, def add top coat {like I did here} for shine.

Two coats of Morgan Taylor Rocketman Professional Nail Lacquer Collection in Sir Teal To You. Teal Shimmer.

How fun is this shade for September?!

Sir Teal To You is a bright yet muted color that feels fresh for fall yet maintains an effervescence that works for summa-summa-summatime. The so-called shimmer in this bad boy is barely visible; however, the hue itself is so pretty that it's no big. Highly recomend this beauty if you're looking for a color that's a bit off the beaten path.

Morgan Taylor Rocketman Nail Laquer Mini 4 Pack Swatches + Review

Did I see the movie Rocketman? No; but I could not resist picking up the inspired-by Morgan Taylor Rocketman Nail Laquer Mini 4 Pack! Y'all, this is an online only Ulta exclusive, and I cannot rave about it more. Peep all of the prettiness below!

Bedazzle Me is a Silver, Teal, and Pink Microglitter in a Clear Base. Le sigh...I am so loving how smoky yet sparkly this bad boy is - it gives it a hint of edginess. Bedazzle Me is a glamorous hue that can be layered over a bold shade as a top coat, or worn on its own {as I have here}. The formula is v simple to work with, and builds fast. My only qualm: I don't love the hexagonal glitter. I definitely would have preferred the microglitter on its own; but I'm still a fan. Necessary if you dig sparkle. This is 3 coats.


It's the Shades is a Hot Pink Matte. Anotha one! Soooo...I thought that I was done with pink for a few months; but here we are and I ain't mad about it. It's the Shades is a gorgeous hot pink hue that, surprisingly, dries matte. Does it look matte here? No, because I added top coat, which makes this color so. much. better. This is a borderline neon shade that is stunning for those last days of summer, yet seamlessly transitions for those first days of fall. Formula is amazing. It's quick-dry, and builds beautifully; but...there are some chipping issues. Not a deal-breaker, but worth mentioning. This is 2 coats.

Two coats of OPI Tokyo Nail Lacquer Collection in Rice Rice Baby. Mauve Pink Creme.

Sooooo... typically I reach for mauve shades during the chilly fall, sweater weather months; but I'm actually liking this one as a break between brights for summer.

Rice Rice Baby is a muted mauve pink that seamlessly falls into the neutral, your-nails-but-better category. It's feminine and playful; yet ultra sophisticated with a touch of sass. The formula is absolutely brilliant - smooth and sumptuous, with the ability to be a OCW if you apply with a heavier hand. Highly recommend!

Three coats of China Glaze Nail Lacquer with Hardeners in Lemon Fizz. Pale Yellow Creme.

Y'all know I've been feeling yellow for the past few months, so adding this beauty to cart was 100% a no brainer.

Lemon Fizz is a fresh, effervescent shade for spring through summer. It has that elusive pastel-meets-bright feel that is, IMO, simply irresistible. Formula was a breeze to work with. It is fairly self-leveling; however, you do need a trio of coats for complete opacity. Application tip: wipe the brush on the lip of the bottle a few times to avoid pooling in cuticles. Trust.

Y'all know that orange isn't my typical color craving; but I saw this pretty and picked it up on impulse because I need more orange in my life.

Sunkissed is the quintessential final days of summer shade - being bright and sultry enough for July through August; while crisp enough for those first days of fall. Formula here was fantastic! It applies evenly with minimal fuss, and reaches perfect opacity in jut two swipes. Definitely a new fave in my polish wardrobe!

Le sigh...I'm not typically one for gold or metallics, but this bad boy is bringing all of the summer feels.

Glow-Worthy is a brilliant shade for those summer months. Though different than the usual brights we see when the weather warms up; the silver holo throughout creates a sand-inspired look that is TDF! Formula here was fabulous! You can easily get away with one coat, but two really ups the dimension. Love this one!
