Fall Nail Polish Colors {giveaway}


 
last fall i reported to readers the IT color was Greige. if there was one nail polish color you were to choose, greige was the one (if you're interested you can check it out here). this year, i seem to be seeing Blurple everywhere!

you might be asking yourself what exactly is Blurple? according to the Urban Dictionary Blurple = the combination of black and purple
Friend 1- "Whats your favorite color?"

Friend 2- "Blurple."

Friend 1- "WTH is Blurple?"

Friend 2- "Black+Purple = Blurple."

without further ado, here are some Blurple options for you!

OPI came out with a great color this season called Roadhouse Blues. this color goes on smooth, last several days and definitely worth the investment (approx. $8-9 a bottle)



next up is China Glaze. a fierce competitor to OPI at a slightly lower price point ($7-10 a bottle). China Glaze's Up All Night is a great option if you are looking to get your Blurple on.
for those of you who are fans of Anna Wintour you know about Fashion's Night Out, started by Anna Wintour a few years ago to jump start the slumping fashion industry. this year, Chanel debuted their "special" FNO collection with Blue Rebel being my fave. this price point is much more of an investment, so if you REALLY love it, then go for it ($25-30 a bottle).


but no nail polish review would be complete without my plug for Seche Vite. i love it and is a must have in my opinion. if you're interested, you can read more here.

My favorite nail color - that I don't have... well I like the idea of blurple to be honest - never seen that one before and I was thinking of a black.. but my husband isn't really into black nails,

I am loving the greys. Not the metallics, but the solid greys. So different, yet subtle.

Elle said...

This is awesome! Anything nails for me! My favorite color of polish this season is the military greens. That seems to be a very popular trend this fall. Any shade of "ugly" green is HOT! :)

I posted your giveaway on my nail blog. www.afroella@gmail.com!

Thanks for the opportunity!

I've always loved purple nail polish, so I'm excited that it's the IT color this fall!

Shan said...

Follower of both blogs. My new favorite would have to currently be OPI Ski Teal We Drop. I got a pedicure this morning (because I'm 38 weeks pregnant and can't reach my feet) and I am loving this color! I think I need to paint my 7 year old's toes with it too. Liking the Blurple though and it's a color not currently in my stash....
