China Glaze Autumn Nights Swatches

Hey friends!!!
Now, I am definitely NOT ready for Fall. The only way you could possibly convince me that Summer is almost over is with pretty polishes...and that's EXACTLY what China Glaze did. Today I have half the Autumn Nights collection to share with you!

China Glaze did SO WELL with the formula and coverage for this collection.
Almost every single bottle was a "one coat wonder" for me. So naturally, I got pretty excited...and loud squeals were let out constantly in the RAWR SHOP household. (Are you surprised? Me neither)

Up for swatches today, we have the following:

-Queen B-
Regal blue-purple crème

This one.....THIS ONE IS MY FAVOURITE! I have a soft spot for deep, luscious blues. This one has a tint of purple in it, which makes it even more majestic, so to speak. I could have totally left it with just one coat, but the second coat solidified my love for it...Oh Queen B, you and I will be spending many happy times together. <3

-Scandalous Shenanigans-
Rich blue shimmer

This colour reminds me of Superman's spandex...
annnnnd this is why I should never be given the job to name a polish....hahaha
Looking at the bottle alone, I thought the application of this polish was going to be quite sheer...but MAN OH MAN! It applied like a creme! Full coverage in one coat! It, however, puts your polish application skills to the test. I believe it's the shimmer in it? It makes every stroke quite apparent. So pretty though!

-Charmed, I'm Sure-
Gracious purple crème

I remember always reaching for shades similar to this on cooler days, so China Glaze was right on the money with this one! I will definitely be revisiting this one again when the leaves start turning brown!

-Red-y & Willing-
Frisky red shimmer's frisky alright!!!! This cherry red shimmer is seductive, yet classy. Definitely a go to shade for a sophisticated look. With some peep-toe shoes, this would make a killer pedicure!
The application of this was smoother than Scandalous Shenanigans (aka superman spandex), also, amazing coverage!

-Goldie But Goodie-
Eternal rust gold shimmer

This rusty gold is just lovely! Whenever a new collection comes out, my eyes usually gravitate towards bright and shinny was no exception this time. I knew this was going to be as awesome as it looked in the bottle. This was 2 coats on bare nails, look at the coverage of it! Yup. Love.

-Gossip Over Omlet-
Platinum shimmer soiree

These last two are so metallic, they're pretty awesome! They make a mess during removal...but just look how pretty they are! It's worth it. The foil glitters in these bring them to a high shine...I see a lot of use for nail art for these two polishes!!

Of course I had to play around with these polishes after I'm done swatching them!
For the mani above, I used Queen B, Red-y & Willing, and Goldie But Goodie. I wanted to play with the gold shimmers to create a foil-like mani. Unfortunately, this didn't photograph as well as I had hoped...but that leaves room for improvement!! YAY!!

This collection is available in stores in September 2013! So if you like your shimmers and cremes, make sure you head on out to get some of these! Because the coverage is AHHH-MAYYYY-ZINGGGGG!!!!

Which one from the Autumn Nights collection will you be picking up?!

Have a good day, folks!

  1. Okay, I changed my mind, Queen B is not that close to my other blues >:D

  2. Did you do all your swatches in one sitting? I just wish I had the patience to do it...These colours look fantastic and your nail art is rawr-worthy!

  3. Oh dear...I need to run and snag Charmed for Sure when it is released...ahhh so pretty!

  4. This collection is beautiful! Wahh kind of sad that Summer is ending...but excited about Fall as well...
