Pretty and Polished Fall 2016 Collection Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
I haven't worked with Pretty & Polished for long, but I have to say that the Fall 2016 Collection just might be my favorite from her yet! Each polish in this collection could stand on its own, but you could just as easily use it with one or more from the collection. There's variety, but it all works together. You can tell that Chelsea worked hard to make sure these were beautiful, unique, and cohesive. Let's get to it!
**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**
Creme de la Creme is described as "a creamy sand shade from the Fall Dusty Cremes".
Shown is two coats of Creme de la Creme with top coat.
Creme de la Creme had a beautiful application and was fully opaque in two coats. You can't go wrong with any of her cremes...dusty or not. They are sleek and simple on their own, great as undies, and opaque enough to be used in nail art. 
$4.25 (mini)/$7.50 (full)

Heavy Metal is described as "a silver based polish packed with metallic glitters in silver, gold, and copper, as well as a dusting of color shifting flakes".
Shown is two coats of Heavy Metal with top coat.
Heavy Metal is absolutely packed with glitter. Two coats will get you full opacity. It is a little thick, due to all the glitter, but I didn't have difficulty applying it. It did dry slightly gritty, but top coat helped smooth that out. This would make a beautiful base for some nail art. The colors work so well together. She used the perfect amount of each one.
$4.50 (mini)/$8.50 (full)

Taupe Me Off and Leaf! is described as "a taupe creme with glitters in browns, golds, coppers, and oranges to represent the falling leaves".
Shown is two coats of Taupe Me Off and Leaf! with top coat.
Taupe Me Off and Leaf! is definitely one of my faves from this collection. I'm a sucker for cremes like this with glitter. I was kinda surprised how great the application was considering the amount of glitter that is in the bottle. Great application, and I didn't have to manipulate the glitter around the nail. It is definitely a creme, perfectly opaque after two coats. A perfect representation of fall.
$4.50 (mini)/$8.50 (full)

Fall in Love a Latte
Fall in Love a Latte is described as "a thermal that changes from light brown when cold to off white when warm filled with different shades of glitter".
Shown is two coats of Fall in Love a Latte with top coat in warm temperatures.
Fall in Love a Latte is so pretty! The light brown shade has a plum tint to it and it is such a lovely color! But the pumice color it is when warm is even better! I had so much fun playing with this one. Lovely application and formula. I wish some of the larger glitter dispersed throughout the bottle a bit more, but I kept the bottle upside down for about 10 minutes before using it. 
$5 (mini)/$9 (full)

Patch
Patch is described as "a pumpkin orange dusty creme".
Shown is two coats of Patch with top coat.
Patch is another with the beautiful formula her cremes have. This shade of orange is on point though. It is one of those shades that looks great on all skin tones. These dusty cremes are so unique. I fall more and more in love with these with each color she releases. If you haven't jumped on this bandwagon yet, you're missing out!
$4.25 (mini)/$7.50 (full)

Fuzzy Sweater
Fuzzy Sweater is described as "a mustard yellow creme packed with color shifting flakies".
Shown is two coats of Fuzzy Sweater with top coat.
Fuzzy Sweater is a must have! The mustard color is along the same lines of the dusty cremes. Great formula and application. You toss in all those UCC flakies and you have perfection! I can't say enough good stuff about this polish. Get it and see its unique beauty for yourself!
$4.50 (mini)/$8.50 (full)

Riverside Drive
Riverside Drive is described as "a dark midnight blue creme with blue, silver, and dark gray flakies".
Shown is two coats of Riverside Drive with top coat.
Riverside Drive is more jelly leaning in my book. Either way, this blue is stunning. It's the shade of a lake lit by the moon. Dark and murky but warm and inviting at the same time. Beautiful formula and application. Full opacity in two coats. I'd love to see someone use this with pond stamping.
$4.50 (mini)/$8.50 (full)

Lavendarling
Lavendarling is described as "a holo lavender polish that is filled with pink and blue flakies and turns to a darker blue/purple shade when cold".
Shown is two coats of Lavendarling with top coat in warm temperatures.
Lavendarling is exactly what I'm talking about when I say you can wear pastels year-round. The color is flirty, and all the glitter and flakes are so playful. I wasn't able to get the thermal to hold the change. My hands were way too warm and I couldn't get the water super cold. Thermal or not, this polish is amazing! Smooth application and creamy formula. 
$5 (mini)/$9 (full)

I Done Plum Had It!
I Done Plum Had It! is described as "a plum creme shade packed with copper orange flakes".
Shown is two coats of I Done Plum Had It! with top coat.
I Done Plum Had It! is going to be on every purple lover's must have list. The combo of the shade of purple and the color of the flakies is flawless. She nailed this polish in every way imaginable. You need it. That is all. Trust me.
$4.50 (mini)/$8.50 (full)

Dark Magic
Dark Magic is described as "a dark gray creme holo with metallic purple hex and holo glitter".
Shown is two coats of Dark Magic with top coat.
Dark Magic is another must have. It is a little on the thick side, but it is only due to the amount of glitter in the polish. A few drops of thinner and you'll be good to go. It dries gritty so be sure to use at least two coats of top coat. This polish is incredibly mesmerizing. So much sparkle and so much depth. You could easily use this as a base for a galaxy mani!

Pretty & Polished did a phenomenal job with her Fall 2016 Collection. I can't recommend these enough. Each polish is available in both mini and full sizes. Prices range from $4.25 to $9 for individual bottles. The Fall 2016 Collection is also available as a whole for $78 which would qualify you for free shipping!! Don't miss out on these! 

October 2016 Beauty Box

Also, don't forget that the October 2016 Beauty Box will only be available until the end of day on September 30th EST. For those of you that need a sneak peek before buying, I've got swatches of the box for you all. 

The something extra this month is a s'mores scented mani melt. This smells so good and made my hands nice and soft.

There's S'more to Life
There's S'more to Life is described as "a milky white cream with brown, copper, and gold glitters".
Shown is two coats of There's S'more to Life with top coat.
There's S'more to Life had a fabulous application despite all the glitter. I don't know how she does it, but she kills it with these glitter packed creams. Two coats for full opacity. Use this after the s'more mani melt and you'll be in s'more heaven!

Follow Your Hearth
Follow Your Hearth is described as "a bright violet crelly with matte red, orange, and yellow glitter".
Shown is two coats of Follow Your Hearth with top coat.
Follow Your Hearth is gorgeous! I don't know how she comes up with some of these color combos, but she's a flippin' genius! I could wear this polish for the rest of my life and be completely happy.

Phantasm
Phantasm is described as "a dusty plum when warm and a blackened plum when cold with UCC flakies".
Shown is three coats of Phantasm with top coat in warm temperatures.
Phantasm was a lovely surprise. I had no idea it was a thermal polish. I applied three coats because I thought the lighter purple was it being streaky. haha So even though I did three coats, you will be fine doing two coats. She had such a delicate hand in adding just the right amount of flakies. Buttery smooth application and great formula. Nothing but love for this one.
