Fall Favorites Part 1:

I got a request from BudgetBeautyGoddess to do a post on my fall favorite polishes! This post is going to be in 2 parts. I'm going to organize these by color families. I've combined some color families, simply to save time. I also tried to use my best judgment on some colors, considering some colors could lean more purple, more brown, more pink etc. I just threw them into what category I felt fit. In addition besides for listing my favorites I'm going to list other recommended colors that are in the same family. These colors I all own, so of course there are many unmentioned that are great too, I just don't own them. All of these colors I list are easily available either in drugstores, beauty supply stores, or online, and of course they are all under $10! Obviously, these are just recommendations, and you can wear whatever colors you want in fall!

  1. Great idea, thanks for the wonderful ideas, I am starting to be pained to not wear summer colors anymore but this makes me hopeful that I have some other colors in my collection that I can start rocking, everyone is commenting on how 'goth' my nails look since I am such a bright person, it really hurts my soul sometimes to not wear bright pink or red! lol

  2. You choose really lovely colors! :)

  3. ski teal we drop is an amazing color! i'm loving that somewhat-muted blue right now.

  4. OPI Ski Teal We Drop is definitely a new fave of mine too and perfect for fall.

  5. Whee! My Request! LOL

    OMG Wagon Train made me SWOON! Love it and I'm going to look into the other colors you suggested.

    I have and have worn OPI Ski Teal We Drop and I still don't know how I feel about it. I also have Gliterzland and I'm not too crazy about that either. I got them with my Ulta point for free and, I don't know:( Maybe I'll try Gliterzland over Ski Teal We Drop?

  6. What a great information-packed post! Thanks for sharing these.

  7. I love the look of Zoya Kotori, even though it's Spring here :D

  8. They are all amazing, but the Zoya is so beautiful!
