My Polish Picks For Fall/Winter 2012!

Ho Ho Ho,

Time for my Fall/Winter polishes presentation!!! I'm planning this post since weeks so I'm very excited to finally show it to you. Enjoy!

These are my picks :)

OPI - Every Month Is Oktoberfest

This is a blackened plum base, with a dark red micro-shimmer so you can see both plum and a deep red in this. It's definitely a perfect shade when I long for vamp. The pigmentation is perfect, I achieved total coverage in 2 thin coats.

Sally Hansen - 470 Purple Pulse


I know what you are going to think now! Nooo, not another purple polish! But before you scamper off and skip this post, stick around - this ain't no ordinary polish. This Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicures offers something a little bit different: Five products in one bottle.

That's right. You've got:
  1. Base coat
  2. Strengthener
  3. Growth Treatment
  4. Colour
  5. Top Coat 
The color is highly pigmented! For a perfect coverage I suggest 3 coats of it (I used 2 on these pictures) for a glossy look. What I didn't like about this polish is the brush but that's normaI since I don't like the Sally Hansen brushes at all cuz their brushes are wider than regular polish brushes and angle at the edges.



This polish is from the OPI Muppets Colletion. I already did a review about it when I got it, you can see more pictures HERE. ;) I don't have nothing else to add.
This is one of my all time favorites! The only time I wouldn't wear it is for summer.


butter LONDON - Shag

Shag (from the butter London Autum/Winter collection) is a strong and deep copper/burgandy color with lots of gold, orange, and red shimmers in a metallic finish.. Gorgeous shade. Really rich and perfect for autumn and winter. The formula is really nice, it wasn’t streaky at all, smooth and easy to apply and covered in two coats. And even though it is a metallic, it's not plagued by any discernible brush strokes. Just looking at it warms me up ;) (still wearing it atm)

YSL - 26 Bleu Cobalt

I got this color for my birthday this year and LOVE it. When I first opened the gift I noticed it's bright blue color and thought it was stunning. On the nails, it looks darker than in the bottle but as soon as a spotlight hits this color you can see it's real beauty ^^ Deep rich blue, which doesn't show up that great in pictures but has a lovely iridescent, shimmery quality, and actually looks beautiful in just one coat. (but I used two, as usal) The formula is just the right amount of runny.

Kiko - 346 Verdone Chiaro/Olive Drap

No shimmer, no glitter, just a nice olive green cream color, a sort of dull green almost a muted jade, perfect for Autum and Winter. With two coats it's perfecly opaque and super glossy. The formula is quite normal. I was very impressed with the wear time on this shade, really good for a not high classed polished.

Estée Lauder - Metallic Sage

This polish was also a gift for my birthday! It's a polish from last years fall collection. It's a khaki color, Sage is a good name for it, embedded within the greyed-sage base is a beautiful coppery shimmer with plenty little flecks of gold. I was absolutely impressed by the holding of this polish!!! It lasted for at least a week. The bottle is also very beautiful. It's a very heavy glass cube with the Estee Lauder monogram printed in gold on the front. This bottle design is really different from all the other bottles in my stash so it stands out. It's my only Estée Lauder polish but I'm so impressed of this polish that I will get some more in the futur for sure.

OPI - Over The Taupe
(dedicated to my friend Lina ;))

This is OPI Over the Taupe from last summer's Bright Pair collection.
Now for a bit of a lesson about taupe. According to Wikipedia, taupe "refers to any grayish-brown color... [and] derives from the Latin name for the European Mole." It gives kind of a color chart that defines different types of taupe. I had fun with it. Over the Taupe is what Wikipedia would define as "medium taupe," while "OPI Metro Chic is "purple taupe," and OPI You Don't Know Jacques! would be a true taupe, or "dark taupe." 
I really love this taupe cream color ^^ It's opaque after two coats and the formula is a normal OPI formula.

That's it!

I want to excuse for some remaining polish edges, dry skin on my hands and any scratches you can probaly see on my hands (the big ones are from my neighbors cat which can be sometimes really bitchy). Since I'm working since a few weeks incidentally on a gaz station my hands look pretty damaged every day. I try to keep them well-tended but it's hard sometimes. Thank you for your understanding.


BTW I already found the perfect polish for Christmas :D Can't wait to show you! 

Have a nice day!!!!

Hugs and kisses,

  2. lovely! i love blue polishes so the YSL is my fave!

    1. I wish it was more like when you look at the bottle but it's a really nice color after all ^^

  3. You must learn to take responsibility for your self and learn to take responsibility for your role played in all
    of your life dramas with various characters. you are doing
    could give you more girls than splashing money
    around. They spend a lot of time and money on it so she will really appreciate
    it when you tell her how much you like it.
