Back in May, I wrote a post about my favorite spring nail polishes! Now I’m back with my second post discussing some fall colored polishes!
If you guys and gals don’t know, I don’t get my nails professionally done. I’m super ticklish and unfortunately with my condition Arthrogryposis, I can’t move my hands much less my fingers out enough for somebody to give me a fresh coat of paint. Luckily for me, I don’t have to go without getting my nails painted because my nana loves doing them for me! She also has a lot of patience too! Every color is in my nana’s collection and in a matter of three years or so, we’ve consumed a lot! Sometimes I can’t be trusted in the beauty sections at the store! I’ve had family members try to redirect my attention somewhere else, that’s how bad I’ve become lately!
I’ve sort of upgraded to 11 bold colors that I felt represented autumn for myself! I wanted to wear very bright, pastel-y shades in the spring and summer; now that we’re heading into fall and winter I like to wear a lot of darker colors and this is no exception! So let’s get right into it!
This time I wanted to separate them out a little bit more, so each batch of polishes are divided into their own sections. So beginning with the brand Milani surprisingly my nana a few of these little bottles!
26 “Quick Teal”
Despite the orange shades in this post, this one is the only bright color of the bunch! I actually added it for a reason. Just because I prefer dark shades for fall and winter, doesn’t mean I can’t add a pop of color sometime! However, I’ve never tried this shade so I can’t tell you how many coats you have to put on to get that color of the bottle. I do think it’s a good color to have if you’re like me and wear black and browns a lot during the colder months!
Here’s what is so interesting about this one. I am not a fan of glitter-y polishes, mostly because they are such a bitch to remove if you had to put on more than two coats. Also, I’m picturing lavender as a very light shade and this isn’t light at all. It’s more of a royal tone and that’s the reason why I put it onto this post, because I am a lover of darker purples than lighter.
99 “Blackberry Baby”
The first thing that popped into my head when I grabbed ahold of this bottle was that it looked like a burgundy shade of red. It’s very dark, in ways “seductive” as the normal bright red tone, but on the sides of the container it has little glittery notes. I’m not entirely sure if that’s the bottle reflecting the kitchen light off of it or if it does in fact have glitter inside it.
46 “Black Magic”
As I wrote out the name and number of the black polish on the right, I kept picturing Emilia SacconeJoly singing part of the chorus of Little Mix’s song “Black Magic” in my head.
Anyways, yes my nana has a black polish in her cabinet and surprisingly enough, she is the one who bought it! She’s only used it a handful of times, but she has had black nails, but I haven’t, which is shocking considered my reputation! I think I would wear it if I could figure out how to take away the glare, I want a matte shade of black than anything else!
Pure Ice and Wet & Wild:
These were the only two polishes that I chose that obviously don’t belong to the same brand. Both of these polishes were given some legendary names I have to say! Again, we’ll be starting from left to right again!
775 “Frosted Ice Celestial”
This one I feel like is more in the late fall and early winter category than anywhere else! The Teal from the beginning belongs in this post than this one does, but I liked the royal shade of it and it did remind of the last bit of November and the months after! Like with the Blackberry Baby this one also produces some glossy effects from inside the bottle. Whether or not, it’s from the flash of my camera is totally another story!
206 “SaGreena the Teenage Witch”
I’m not joking, that is the name of this emerald color of polish! Trust me, I had to do a double take while I was writing it out! I thought it was so cute!
This symbolizes Halloween for me, along of course with the orange polishes I selected down below, but this is a very mysterious color. It’s not bright like in a happy sense as to the one I included in the spring collection, but this is more, the only way I can describe it as if a stranger–a mysterious woman walked around a dark corner trying to tantalize a man or woman; like a spider does with prey! Sorry for the crappy metaphor, I really tried!
As you might know if you’ve read my previous Nails Of The Month posts, my nana and I are big fans of Sally Hansen! We have tons of different versions of polishes and you can clearly see that here in this line.
I have added two different shades of orange onto this post, one is lighter, whereas this one is the bold, in your face, pumpkin shade of orange that we all sort of gravitate towards at this time of the year! I like the title as it does remind me of the Sun Kist drink that I no longer drink!
136 “Go For Gold”
This was one of the last colors I had on my toes! I want to say maybe July?! I think so. Anyways, this is another one like the Frosted Ice Celestial that I feel like it doesn’t necessarily belong in the autumnal category, despite the fact that people do consider gold as a fall stable sometimes, I wouldn’t say a sparkly shade of gold would fit for this, but still I had to add it into the post!
375 “Gone Grey”
This title made me think of both the “Gone Girl” and “Fifth Shades” books!
You’re probably wondering why I wanted to put a gray shade into this post. Well, honestly I think gray is neutral color that basically fits any season except for maybe summer! It has more of a slick look to it that I really liked for the whole feeling of fall for me!
470 “Unbreakable Heart”
This one ultimately belongs on the winter part, but I also had to remind myself of both apples and cinnamon, it has a kind of warmth quality that I am, well everyone looks for during the start of the colder months! October and November has hints of orange, yellow, brown, red and sometimes a dark shade of green too! So I couldn’t leave it out completely!
460 “Snappy Sorbet”
Lastly, we have this light shade of orange. Even though, it has more of a coral look to it! It’s not in your face as maybe my Junior prom dress did (I looked like a big ole salmon!) in 2009 but I think it’s still a good fall inspired color! If you’re missing the summer, this is a good shade of both pink and orange you can wear for the start of fall!
So what do you think of these colors? What represents fall to you?
