Fall in Michigan, where I live, is in its full swing at the moment. The leaves on the tress have changed colors, the weather is cooler and the nature looks more beautiful than ever! I have been enjoying going for leisurely strolls just to take in the beauty of autumn here.
I picked 6 of my current favorites, with 4 shades from Zoya and 2 from Essie.
Starting with my all time favorite shade- Zoya Pepper (from Fall 2013 Cashmere Collection). This shade is the embodiment of autumn for me. It’s a beautiful burnt red color that reminds me of pumpkins. The nail polish itself is very creamy and fully opaque in just one coat.
Next up, another shade from Zoya- Yuna (from Fall 2014 Ignite Collection). I like it a lot because of its complexity. It is a dark greish green shade with gold speckles that looks different depending on the light. It’s absolutely stunning.
The third shade is Zoya Ryan (from Fall 2014 Entice Collection), which is a deep dark blue shade. I rediscovered this shade after Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup was talking about her favorite nail polishes for fall and she mentioned Ciate x Olivia Palermo shade in New England Fall. I didn’t necessarily want to buy another nail polish so I just searched my large nail polish collection and found Ryan! The shade is really elegant and can look almost black.
The last shade from Zoya is Aubrey (Naturel 2 Collection). It’s a medium mauve shade. A perfect muted fall color. I am actually wearing it on my nails right now with a gold accent nail.
The fifth shade is The Perfect Cover Up from Essie (Fall 2014 Dress To Kilt Collection). It’s a deep teal with a little bit of grey. This shade has a special place in my heart because I bought it last year from my best friends’ wedding. Peacock green was one of their wedding colors and every time I wear this shade on my nails it brings back fantastic memories!
Last but not least, the latest addition to my nail polish collection- In The Lobby from Essie (Fall 2015 Collection). Essie describes it as a “cinnamon plum” and just the description of the shade makes me want to wear it non-stop! It’s beautiful and it’s also a perfect fall shade for your toes! Thanks Karen for making me run to the store to get this shade after you wore it on your nails.
