Pretty & Polished Fall 2013 Collection Swatch & Review

Hi everyone!!  I'm so excited to show you the Fall 2013 Collection from Pretty & Polished!!



H-equinox My Socks Off


H-equinox My Socks Off is a soft taupe shimmer loaded with gold and blue mini hexes.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  This is such a fun color to wear!  It has a softness to it, but the blue hexes really give it a crisp edge.
Shown is two coats of H-equinox My Socks Off.



Rake a Little Piece of my Heart


Rake a Little Piece of my Heart is a delicate cream creme (and isn't that just fun to say), loaded with multi-sized red hexes and squares, multi-sized orange hexes and squares, and gold dots.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  I adore this combo to pieces!!!
Shown is two coats of Rake a Little Piece of my Heart.



Forever My Pumpking


Forever My Pumpking is a sheer neon orange jelly with subtle flecks of gold.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, but does dry with a neon finish, so you'll definitely want to top coat.  If you are after an opaque finish, you will also need to apply a base color.
Shown is two coats of Forever My Pumpking over white base.



Over the Harvest Moon for You


Over the Harvest Moon for You is a deep blue jelly with a strong silver shimmer, loaded with an array of multi-sized metallic and holographic hexes, dots, and stars in a variety of blues and silver.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, and the glitters came out of the bottle so easily!!  I am crazy about this shade!!!!!  It's just stunning!
Shown is two coats of Over the Harvest Moon for You.



For Sweater or Worse


For Sweater or Worse is a fabulous medium purple creme.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, and has a ton of natural shine.  I am so excited to be seeing indie polish cremes - and this is such a perfect color for it!
Shown is two coats of For Sweater or Worse.



Hows About a Roll in the Hay?


Hows About a Roll in the Hay? is a clear coat loaded with multi-sized satin dots, bars, and hexes in white and yellow.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  I was really surprised at how much I like this one!!  It's such fun to look at!
Shown is one coat of Hows About a Roll in the Hay? over Sweater or Worse.



When Hearts Kaleidoscope


When Hearts Kaleidoscope is a medium berry crelly loaded with berry dots, and multi-sized gold hexes.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, and the glitters spread out very evenly across the nail.  I adore this shade!  It has such a boldness to it!
Shown is two coats of When Hearts Kaleidoscope.



Leaf Me Breathless


Leaf Me Breathless is a sheer neon yellow jelly loaded with multi-sized hexes in red, orange, yellow, green and brown, as well as red diamonds.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, and the glitters spread out very evenly across the nail.  You will need to use a base color for an opaque finish.  I was really surprised to see how bright the yellow base actually is.  It looked much more muted in the bottle.  I love it!!
Shown is two coats of Leaf Me Breathless over white base.



You Make me Feel Gourdgeous 


You Make me Feel Gourdgeous  is a deep purple jelly packed with deep blue, medium blue, and bright purple micro hexes.  The formula was a little on the thick side, but was otherwise easy to work with.  This is definitely a dazzler shade!!
Shown is two coats of You Make me Feel Gourdgeous.



Love is Autumn-atic!


Love is Autumn-atic! is a clear coat loaded with red, orange, and gold micro glitters.  The formula was a bit on the thick side, but was otherwise easy to work with.  I really love how bright all of these glitters are!
Shown is one coat of Love is Autumn-atic! over Blair.



In addition to the Fall Collection, there are also some new shades in the Pretty & Polished Basic line, such as ...


Simone


Simone is a muted medium teal shimmer.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  I'm such a sucker for a great teal, and this definitely is one of them!!
Shown is two coats of Simone.



Blair


Blair is a muted medium red shimmer.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  I love the softness that this red has, it makes it much more feminine.
Shown is two coats of Blair.


The Fall Collection will be available on September 5th at the Pretty & Polished storefront here, and be sure to check them out on Facebook for all of their latest updates.

Happy Painting!
