Fall Polish Haul Preview

I’m headed away today with my mother for a five-day surprise getaway (surprise as in, I have no idea where we’re going – she won’t tell me!), and it’s unlikely I’ll be posting again till Wednesday, so I’m leaving you with a little teaser of swatches of all the Fall polish shades I’ve picked up (but have yet to wear!).  The last of my haul, four shades from Zoya and two from RBL, came in on Thursday, so I’m super-stoked.  BTW: I made my Nail Polish Canada order on Friday, August 26th, they were mailed the same day, and I received them 4 business days later.  Color me impressed!!

I’ve made a few quick comparisons for those shades that are similar to colors I already own and for the most part have swatched on the blog, for your reference.  I hope you enjoy!!My new Fall polishes in all their glory :)

Poco a Poco – A bit darker than Essie Muchi Muchi, with orangey-pink micro-shimmer. Three coats.Piu Mosso – Dupe of Joe Fresh Navy Marine but with firey-orange micro-shimmer. Two coats.Cynthia – Nothing like it! Deep dark indigo creme. Leans teal. Three coats but probably could have two (I wasn’t waiting much for them to dry before painting on the next coat).Neeka – Same base shade as Chanel Paradoxal. Has gold and green shimmer. Two coats.Anja – Nothing like it in my stash. Deep wine creme. Two coats.Yara – Same base shade as OPI’s Uh Oh but slightly darker. Has gold and green shimmer. Two coats.
Uh Oh Roll Down the Window – Nothing like it in my stash. Muted army green. Three coats (again, swatching too quickly before they dried).I Brake for Manicures – Nothing like it in my stash. Dark and dusty eggplant. Two coats.Graphite – Nothing like it. Pewter foil with silver and gold shimmer-glitter. Two coats (but I might like three).Peridot – Somewhat similar to CG’s Peace on Earth, but lighter and duochrome. Green-tinged gold with blue duochrome. Two coats.Trendsetter – Nothing like it. Green-leaning mustard yellow with gold, green and pink microshimmer. Two coats.Midtown Magic – NOTHING LIKE IT!!! Deep purple-brown base with gold, bronze and green shimmer. SUPER lit-from-within glow. Two coats.Pictures did not do any of these polishes justice, so just trust me when I say you need to OWN THEM ALL. Seriously. They are all more than lemming worthy. The only shades I’m not totally sold on are Poco a Poco and Trendsetter, and I’m hoping to chalk that up to being too tanned right now – I’m sure when I’m all washed out again later in the season, I’ll be rocking them out (if not, up for swap they go! Keep your eyes peeled :)).

Did I just hear everyone’s wallets explode?? ;)

Have a fantastic long weekend!!!!!

    DAMN, woman. Nice haul! Luckily I did splurge on a few more nail polishes since the Chanel drive-by, so I can safely admire your collection without feeling left out and destitute! lol

    I just knew that Peridot would look amazing on you! It’s the most complementary and standout shade to me from the list. Midtown Magic and Anja both look amazing too. Enjoy your new stash and have fun on the surprise trip! (Your mom is so awesome!!)

      Aww shucks, thanks Liz! I’m interested to see what Peridot looks like as a full mani on me. I’m not sure it’ll look as eye-catching as it did on you, but one can hope :) And believe it – Midtown Magic is GORGEOUS, and Anja, which I’m sporting as a pedi right now, is a stunner as well. And PS – my trip was really great, and yes my mom is awesome!!

...And what do you have to say about all this?? Dish! :)
