I've said it in this blog before, but I absolutely adore fall shades for makeup and nail polish. I have a lil vamp living inside me that never sleeps, lol! My fave shades are burgundy, dark red, smokey purple... but really anything dark and sultry. Give all this, I'm already excited about fall. Ive been accumulating some nail polishes that fit the bill since the last two weeks, excuse the quality of pics, bad cloudy day today :/

1. Left to right: Midnight Mission, First Class Ticket and Ingrid all by China Glaze. I picked these up from Sally's.

2. Left to right: Out of This World, Lunar Eclipse and Galaxy Girl all by Orly. Orly's Cosmic FX is the best nail polish collection I've ever seen in a while! I got these from Sally's as well.

3. Left to right: Zoya Kotury (picked this from Trade Secret), Earthly Harmony and Jade Dragon both from MAC's new nail trend collection.

Overall, I'm loving this new vibe of small glitters in dark polishes. I have not worn any of these yet but I can see a common trend which I love! I picked up "cooler" toned fall shade this year as my stash is full of warm purple, burgundy and blood red shadeed nail polishes.

Here are some quick and dirty nail wheel comparisons. I will do full review and swatches of all these as I wear them:

1. MAC Rain of Flower (left) vs Orly Out of This World (right). I didn't pick up MAC as even though they are not dupes, I find the MAC shade just pales in comparison. Much more flat looking.

2. MAC Ming Blue (left) vs Orly Lunar Eclipse (right). Again I skipped the MAC shade. The base of these two is similar but Orly has more reflect glitters in it. You can't see it well in the picture but the orly almost looks like it has a purple flash to it IRL.

3. China Glaze Ingrid (left) vs MAC Earthly Harmony (right). These are in the same colour family of mushroom shades that have been popular since last year. They are different enough for me to justify owning both. The fine glitter is more visible in the MAC shade.

Did you guys get any new polishes lately? What are some of your favourite nail polish brands/shades?

    You won't be disappointed with Midnight Mission...I was shocked at how pretty it really is in person!

    Congrats on your haul!

    I bought the whole Orly Cosmic collection and half of CG Vintage Vixen too. I also got some Zoya for the first time!

    I'm a little bummed though, i've just learnt that Transdesign has stopped international shipping for Orly. I'm going to miss that brand!

    I was excited to read this post and learn that they had the Orly Cosmic Collection at Sally's in Ottawa...thought they would be in Toronto already...but they're not! I'm so impatient!

    Kittypolishnbags - Midnight Mission is gorgeous! Gotta wear it soon :)

    Amira - Oooo, u got some nice stuff too then :) I hate how these companies keep changing their policies about the shipping. many don't even ship to Canada and we're like right across their borders :/

    Anon - my Sally just got these on Wednesday, I'm sure the ones in TO should have them now too :)
