Pretty & Polished Fall Glitters

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Today I have 8 brand new polishes to share with you from Pretty & Polished's Fall Glitters Collection. This collection is a classic Pretty & Polished Collection full of glitter and flakies in gorgeous fall shades The Fall 2015 Collection launches on October 1 in  Pretty & Polished's shop along with new Halloween shades!

Don't Flake on Me is a ultrachrome flakie topper with heavy pink shimmer. This one is a little sheer on its own, but you can build it up to opacity in 3 coats. I actually prefer using it as a topper, so I used 1 coat over Pretty & Polished Saucey Marsala in the second set of pics (which is a perfect pairing) and I love it that way! This polish is definitely reminiscent of fall leaves and it's so gorgeous!

That's Crantastic is a thermal crelly that transitions from nude (warm) to a dusty cranberry (cold) filled with ultra chrome flakies. Formula was very nice to work with and built up to opacity in 3 thin coats. Both the nude and cranberry shades are super pretty and the colors of the ultra chrome flakies make this perfection for fall. My photos were making it pull very red, but it's closer to the color you see in the bottle in real life.




Rustic Charm is a peach crelly filled with white, brown, copper, and caramel glitters. Formula on this one was very easy to work with and it had a great glitter load. I got full coverage in 3 thin coats plus I used a thicker topcoat to smooth out the glitters. I was not drawn to this one initially, but it was so flattering on my skintone. It has some slight pinky undertones which make it the perfect peach.

Hayrides for Days is a nude crelly filled with blue, gold, purple, royal blue, and fuchsia glitters. This one was packed with glitters, so I recommend wiping your brush off a bit to avoid having too much glitter in each coat. I used 3 thin coats for full coverage plus a thicker topcoat to smooth it out (I used 2 coats because this one was very glitter). This is a party in a bottle but it's subdued a bit by the nude base.

Autumn Love Story is a light chocolate brown crelly with some purple undertones filled with orange, copper, and fuchsia glitters and heavy red shimmer. Formula was easy to work with and I used 3 thin coats for full coverage plus a thicker topcoat to smooth it out. I love the slight purple tinge to the base, it really brings all of these colors together. I'm not always a fan of heavy shimmer in glitter polishes, but it works nicely here.

Gussied Up Gold is a holographic gold microglitter polish. Formula was very nice and easy to work with and it built up perfectly to opacity in 2 coats. I think that there is some metallic gold pigment in the base in addition to the glitter that really aids in the opacity of this polish, which is really nice. It's a lovely gold for fall!

I Can See Your Holo is a holographic silver microglitter polish. Formula was very similar to Gussied Up Gold and again, I think there is some silver metallic pigment that aids in reaching opacity in 2 easy coats. So pretty and sparkly (even though I don't feel my photos showed it very well).

The Skies are Falling is a medium blue holo filled with blue and silver holo microglitter. Formula was very nice to work with and I got full coverage in 2 easy coats. This one was more squishy in appearance than the other two microglitters and it had seems to have several different sizes of holographic glitters and pigments in which give it a lot of depth. I also love the slightly murky green tint to the blue making it very unique!
