Top Five Nail Polishes | Fall Edition

November 8, 2013

I’m finally getting around to my top nail polish picks for fall time. I have a post up on my top five summer polishes, which you can check out here.


During this time of year, I really like to wear darker, more plum toned colors. I think you will see a pattern in the polishes I am loving this season.

Five Fall Nail Polishes

*The nail swatches below are 2 coats of polish, with no base or top coat used. Annnddd, I somehow managed to nick myself while cooking dinner the other night, so excuse my middle finger.*


Sinful Colors | My Turn


I really like this color, but the formula is a bit hard to work with. It’s really streaky and dries kind of funky, as you can see below. But considering the price, I didn’t have high expectations. For some reason after opening it, the cap doesn’t seem to screw on there right, anyone else have the same problem?


Essie | Merino Cool


Ahhh, my absolute favorite color…EVER! I wear this so much, I am actually running low on this. Yep, that’s how much I love this polish…I need to stock up on this beautiful gray, purple color. My mom and I have completely different skin coloring and tones, and this looks great on both of us, so I think this would work amazingly well on just about anyone!


Wet N Wild | Bite The Bullet


I recently purchased this and it has quickly become one of my absolute favorites! I have worn in several times and have gotten many compliments on it. It’s a perfect soft purple.


Essie | Big Spender


I think this color works well all year-round, but I have definitely been wearing it a lot more this season. It’s coming off a bit brighter in the picture below, regardless, it’s gorgeous.


Essie | Bahama Mama


Now I can’t have a fall nail polish post without having an oxblood polish! This polish is the epitome of oxblood, I am so in love with this color and wear it at least once a week. It’s beautiful! However, out of all my Essie polishes, this has to be the streakiest one, but it’s not  a deal breaker for me.



Do you ladies own any of these beautiful colors?

Which one is your favorite?

Did you catch the trend?


Hope you ladies have a beautiful weekend!


Love you all, until next time!
