Happy Monday, guys! Sorry for taking a week off, but it was a very unproductive week haha. Anyway, it’s officially Fall now! Even though Malaysian weather is pretty much summer all year long, but Fall does bring in more rain and of course, new trends! Fall time means darker colours, sweaters and PSLs, but sadly, sweaters in 30 degree Celsius weather is a not a very good idea haha, and PSLs aren’t available here in Malaysia 🙁
Today I’m showing you guys my fall nail polish picks for 2016! These are the types of colours that I’ll be rocking through out fall, unless I get new nail polishes, of course haha. I did a fall nail polish picks post in 2014 as well, and it’s pretty cool to see how much my taste in nail polish shades have changed. Lets check out my fall nail polish picks and hopefully you find a new nail polish to try for the fall!
You could see in my 2014 fall nail polish picks post that I was more into the rich, jewel-tones. Fast forward two years and I’m more into deep, dusty colours. I have a mix of drugstore and high end nail polishes to show you guys. Most of these shades are cremes, with a few shimmers thrown in!
Trust Fund Beauty is a vegan and cruelty-free brand that sells lipsticks and nail polishes, all formulated in the USA or EU. Champagne Socialite is a gorgeous rose-gold shade that’s gorgeous all year round! This is a shimmery formula and it sparkles beautifully under light. The formula of this is on the more watery side, which makes it very easy to apply. It is a little bit sheer because of the formula, but two coats is enough for full opacity. I think this is one of those shades that everyone should own – it’s classy and elegant, perfect for a dinner party, an event, etc.
#8 is a gorgeous deep red with a subtle shimmer running through it. The Berry Delicious Souffle Nail range is scented, and smells just like berries! The formula of this is amazing and this could pass for a one-coater. However, in my swatch, I used two coats for maximum opacity.
The whole Forest Aurora range is perfect for fall, but I only picked these two up. #376 is a gorgeous dark purple that has fuchsia reflects and #381 is dusty purple mauve with teal reflects. Again, the formula of these are amazing! Etude House Nail polishes are so affordable and their formula is always on point!
This rich burgundy shade has been my go-to fall shade for three years. That’s why the swatch looks horrible – it’s become so gloopy that I need to pick up a new bottle. I love the formula of this. It’s so pigmented and definitely a one-coater as well. OPI nail polishes have an amazing brush that is slightly wider that makes it super easy to apply the polish.
A deep lilac is a must for me during fall! It’s a good balance between a fall and summer shade – it’s deep enough but still has a fun pop of colour. The Essence the Gel Nail Polishes are so extremely affordable, but have amazing formulas. They’re very creamy, mostly one-coaters, and gives a beautiful gel glossy look.
This one is a Malaysian brand so it’s not accessible if you’re outside of Asia. But basically, I like to pick out one bright colour for fall. A bright manicure is what you need for those gloomy days out some times! Elianto Serenity is a gorgeous periwinkle creme polish. The formula is a little bit sheer, but 2 coats gives it full opacity.
So those were my fall nail polish picks for 2016! Hopefully you found a new polish to try! I’m always on the hunt for more nail polishes (#hoardersunite). So if you have any recommendations, let me know in the comments!
