Finally! Fall is on it’s way ❤ I am so stoked. Fall and winter are my favorites so I am so ready for the next 6 months! We also are starting to see the new fall polishes coming out. Pam from Stella Chroma chose to take the matte route and it was an amazing way to go! I’m sure you will agree so let’s have a look.
Pumpkin Everything: “What fall collection would be complete without a perfect pumpkin orange? This is a matte medium orange with a strong green shimmer as a nod to gorgeous pumpkin vines.” LOVE this polish. I noticed that if you hold your nails at an angle, the shimmer will turn purple. Only at extreme angles but still you should buy it and check it out. This polish formula was super nice to work with. I used 3 thin coats plus glossy top coat for my swatches.
You Blockhead: “This shimmery yellow matte was named by Mr. STELLA CHROMA himself. He looked at it and said, “That’s the yellow of Charlie Brown’s shirt. It should be called You Blockhead!” He’s totally right, isn’t he?” Yes he is! I am always a little nervous with a yellow polish. Yellow has a horrible record for a bad formula. FEAR NOT! This is a smooth easy yellow 🙂 I used 3 thin, very smooth coats plus a glossy top coat.
Gala: “Apple picking is a traditional fall activity, and this matte red stunner is bright like the skin of the sweet Gala apple!” Apple picking is a tradition in my family ❤ Then we all go back to my dads and make a few apple pies and some apple crisp! Ugh, I’m hungry lol! The best part about this polish is definitely the shimmer. It’s also more opaque than I was expecting. I used 2 fabulous coats with a glossy top coat for my swatches.
Flannel & Boots: “Our favorite flannel shirt is this gorgeous shade of teal. What says fall like flannel shirts, leggings, and boots? This lovely matte polish is highlighted with white and blue flakies.” I love love love this color. This one is a little more crelly like in formula. Super easy to use! I used 3 thin coats plus a glossy top coat.
Perseids: ” The Perseids meteor shower occurs every fall, peaking in August. This matte navy harkens to the night sky and the holo flakies sparkle like stars on your nails.” MY FAVORITE!! It really is the night sky on your nails. It’s a jelly base so its squishy and has layered flakie depth. Just breathtaking!! I used 3 thin coats plus glossy top coat for my pics.
Cinnamon & Spice: “Warm brown tones are complimented by copious amounts of pink shimmer in this matte beauty that reminds us of all of the delicious cinnamon treats that pop up in the fall! Apple dumpling, anyone?” Did I mention that I’m hungry?? This color is like putting on a sweater. It just makes you feel warm and cozy ❤ The pink shimmer is such a compliment to the base color. This could be a 1 coater if you polish on the thicker side. Great formula that is totally opaque in 2 coats. I used 2 coats plus glossy top coat. Extra macros to show the shimmer shift!
Now for the info; “The collection will release Saturday, Sept 22nd at noon EST. They will be $12 per 15 mL bottle. For the first two weeks after release (until Oct 5th), the full set of 6 will be available for $64.
“A portion of sales from Sept-Dec will go to Girls Who Code. January will be GirlStart.” I love the word donate. I always love to help when I can. I am sure you feel the same so buying these will help you support a cause ❤
*Note: Matte top coat was not used at all in any of my pictures. The matte finishes are all natural to the polish.
