Falling for Fall Polishes

So.. I think I went a little overboard on these;] The lovely Ash from Art Evolve got together a little group of girls to show their favorite summer to fall transition polishes. And basically what happened last night is that I started swatching and I just couldn't stop! So you get a ton of pictures today..

KBShimmer No Whine Left: I love the vampy base with the sparkly blue glitters, it really combines summer and fall for me.

Orly Emberstone: This orange is amazing! And the touch of coral makes it perfect for this time of year. Also, look at that shimmer!!

Zoya Toni: So Oxblood is the big color this season and this is a little bit of oxblood, a little bit of purple. It's one of my new favorites, I love it so hard.

NOPI For Gold Time's Sake: The 3 shimmering polishes in this collection are so so pretty. The color shifting shimmer is just ridiculous! And I love the olive-y base color too.

OPI Ski Teal We Drop: This was the polish that got me in to nail polish & blogs!! Clearly it's in a special place in my heart. Also, it's just flat out pretty.

China Glaze Exotic Encounters: I think this color is so great for transitioning from summer to fall. It's bright, but a little dutsy, and on the greener side of teal.

BB Couture Busty Bombshell: Olive green shimmer with that signature BB Couture micro glitter? Yes PLEASE. Love.

Alta Costura Vernis Tigress: This is a fun and happy orange, but the mix of black glitters in there also really works for Halloween!

Essie Cocktail Bling: I really like this polish, it makes me feel so calm and cozy :] Great for the incoming chill in the air!

Orly Smolder: I'm already predicting that this will be my most worn fall polish this year. I couldn't stop staring at it when I swatched it!! It literally GLOWS. I'm almost positive I'll be wearing this during Thanksgiving. And probably every other week. Gah!!!

Nostalgic Lacquer Date at Midnight with Nosferatu: The name is kind of dumb and long, but the polish is really great. I love the shade of those magenta glitters in there,  and combined with the grey jelly base, it's like a sneaky glam.

Joe Fresh Moss with Dollish Polish Urban Camo: YESYESYES. I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOOOOVE Urban Camo and I think Moss is the perfect underwear polish. Just.. Neon green, gold, white, & black glitter perfection. I can't even. I need to wear this again now. I was actually upset I had to take this off.

KBShimmer Witch Way?: This is like a purple holo version of Essie SSN. So it's better in my book. It just looks like space to me, if space were purple. [Sidenote, I read somewhere that space tastes like raspberries. I seriously want to taste space so bad right now.]

Lacquistry Leaf Piles Make Me Smile: If Smolder is gonna be my Thanksgiving mani, this would definitely be a close second. Such a pretty shimmery base, and the whole feel of this is really autumnal.

Pahlish Ace of Fours: This took a little more loving to get on the nail [about 3 heavier coats], but I think it's worth it. There's a shimmer in there that, added to those teeny shard glitters, make this whole polish twinkle, like snow.

Essie Bobbing for Baubles: Dark blue-grey perfection. I always feel stylish when I'm wearing this.

China Glaze It's Alive: This is the most perfect Halloween polish basically ever. I love how this looks on me, but also, it's so well executed. Amazing formula and so. packed. with glitter.

Cult Nails Spontaneous: A greyed-purple with seriously gorgeous purple tiny glitters. The addition of glitter definitely makes it unique, and the shade really says fall to me.

So there you have it! My top 18 picks for fall. I can't wait to wear the crap out of these polishes, they make me so ridiculously happy. But seriously, go right now and get Smolder and Urban Camo and It's Alive and Emberstone. You'll be a happier polish-er;] Which of these was your favorite??
