HPB Presents: Fall Favorites

*Some items included were provided for review*

Hi everyone! This weekend, the Hobby Polish Bloggers are doing a link-up of our Fall Favorites. I could have gone many ways with this, but I decided to have a comprehensive look at some of my favorite fall nail polish releases from this year. I chose to do this because there are several that I have purchased myself and never highlighted on my blog, even though I have utilized them in a few manis. Hopefully this will give you guys a chance to pick up some of these fab releases before they disappear!
China Glaze: I had fallen in love with several of the polishes from the All Aboard Collection after seeing them featured on some fabulous blogs that I follow, and I picked up 3 from the collection that I'm quit smitten with. China Glaze also released The Giver Collection, and I completely fell in love with the wonderfully glittery Boundary of Memory. Here I layered 1 coat over Lug Your Designer Baggage, but it would easily be opaque on its own. I've told you guys over and over that I'm obsessed with brown this fall, and these picks from China Glaze are certainly in line with that.

OPI Nordic Collection: This collection had a few unconventional choices for "fall colors", but I really loved these 4. I have worn the cremes several times during this fall season and they are totally fab! Do note that Do You Have This Color in Stock-holm is very color inaccurate here. It leans really blue in pictures (despite all color adjusting I could do), but it is really a vibrant purple. I do not really love My Voice is a Little Norse on its own, but I think it is the perfect polish for creating gradients. I used it here over Viking in a Vinter Vonderland.

Zoya: The Entice and Ignite Collections were by far my favorite mainstream fall releases because they just fully encompassed fall in every way. You can see my full reviews of them if you follow the links.

For indies, there were some awesome releases as well! Here are some of my favorites. You guys know I'm an indie fanatic, so there are quite a few here!

I was really impressed with my first experience with Delush Polish. The Scream Supreme Collection is just amazing, and here are a few of my favorites (full review here).

Some other indies that were new to me this fall, Ellagee and Literary Lacquers, also impressed me with their fall offerings. Ellagee's Villainous Holo-ween Collection (review here) had some amazing glitter toppers and holos, and I adore these two glitter toppers so much! Literary Lacquers Rebecca Collection (review here) were all linear holos with holo microglitter (which I love LOVE LOVE) in gorgeous fall shades.

KBShimmer was killing it (as usual) with their fall collection. I loved them all, but here are a few favorites! (full review here).

Smitten Polish tapped into my orange and brown loving heart with these beauties! Also, Out of the Darkness is an absolutely stunning (and impossible to capture) polish released to raise money for a great cause (Suicide Prevention).

Darling Diva Polish's WitchEE Collection was just stunning all the way around. Gorgeous holos and an amazing holo topcoat with flake shimmer (The Immortal). The Alchemist is the most amazing red holo I own. It was hard to pick favorites for this collection, but here are a few! (full review here).

Pahlish released the gorgeous Royal Reverie Collection this fall with amazing flake shimmer all around. These are a few of my favorites from that collection, as well as my favorite duo from the fall, the September "With Arms Outstretched" Duo, which was only sold during the month of September.

These pretties from Pretty & Polished (review) and Chaos & Crocodiles (review) are also some that you don't want to miss out on!

And finally...just for fun...I will share my favorite fall nail art looks with you guys!

So I hope that you guys enjoyed this fall round-up of all of my favorites! Be sure to check out what all of the other ladies from Hobby Polish Bloggers are sharing! Thanks for looking everyone!
