Yay, fall is coming, fall is coming! I love warm weather, but I still look forward to the changing seasons. Soon, we can switch out our summer wardrobe for warmer clothes, boots and sweaters. And best of all the polish companies come out with their latest fall collections.
China Glaze came up with a really terrific collection this year. Most of the colors are on the cool side which strikes me as a little different. When I think of fall, I think Thanksgiving, orange, yellow and brown leaves, hot apple cider, Halloween, orange pumpkins, cornucopia... you get it. All of these inspire warm tones. But this year China Glaze broke out of the box and went cool. The collection has twelve colors. The cooler tones consist of two blues, a teal, two purples and a green. There's a warm red, a pink, a few neutrals. A couple of the colors might be used best as toppers. No black, orange, yellow, deep brown. I'm impressed at the selection of colors. And, like always, I have to critique the names. I think China Glaze is giving OPI a run for their money. Will we have to consider passing the polish naming award over to China Glaze? Well, not just yet. Here's a few. Jagged Little Teal (Jagged Little Pill, Alanis Morrissette), Purple Fiction (Pulp Fiction, perhaps?), Pearl Jammin' (Pearl Jam). Good job China Glaze. I have to admit that I've seen very similar colors in previous collections, but that's OK.
If you pick up a few, let me know how you like them.
Ciao for now.
