Chanel fall 2017 nail polish collection from left: Chanel Rouge Noir nail polish / Chanel New Dawn nail polish / Chanel Horizon Line nail polish

The new Chanel fall 2017 nail polish collection is here! Chanel has included three, beautiful colors for the autumn season this year. My favorite color in the fall collection is “New Horizon.” It is a pale, blue-grey hue which is fresh and unexpected for the fall season. Love that!

The other two colors in the Chanel fall 2017 nail polish are more classic, traditional fall colors. “New Dawn” is a soft neutral hue which is a cool, pale beige or nude. “Rouge Noir” is a vampy, red-black color which is dark, mysterious, and ideal for the dark hues we are seeing in the fall 2017 apparel collections.

Each one of the Chanel fall 2017 nail polish collection colors is a stand-alone hue which serves a different purpose. I love all three! Without further ado, here are my reviews and swatches of each one of the Chanel fall 2017 nail polish colors from the autumn collection.

Chanel fall 2017 nail polish: Chanel Horizon Line nail polish fall 2017

chanel nail polish fall 2017 review

Chanel Horizon Line nail polish for fall 2017 is my favorite color from the autumn nail polish collection. I love the grey-blue hue which acts as a neutral, without being a neutral. Love that!

This is a fresh color other nail polish companies simply do not produce. I love it when Chanel offers original colors which cannot be found elsewhere. It helps makes the polish more special. Horizon Line by Chanel will be an easy color to wear this fall since it contrasts to the dark colors being shown this season, as well as offers a nice blend for fall’s cobalt blue trend. Chanel Horizon Line nail polish will be the color I reach for the most this fall 2017 season.

Chanel Horizon Line nail polish is a great color to wear now, and into the fall 2017 season. The pale grey-blue hue of the polish allows it to play well with the current late summer color palette, as well as move right into the fall 2017 season without clashing with any autumn hues. I plan to wear this nail polish now, and well into the fall season. I am in love!

I tested out Chanel Horizon Line nail polish with one base coat, two coats of color, and no top coat. Horizon Line by Chanel is a cream nail polish and it applies smoothly, without streaking. Since it is part of the Chanel Long-wear collection, Horizon Line by Chanel does not chip easily; and I felt like I did not need a top coat. Love!

Chanel fall 2017 nail polish: Chanel New Dawn nail polish fall 2017

Chanel New Dawn nail polish for fall 2017 is soft beige or nude color. This is the ideal neutral for the autumn season and it is also a great contrast to the dark fall 2017 color palette. New Dawn by Chanel is also a great color to wear now, and into the early fall season. It is a great summer to fall transition color, which makes it a great nail polish wardrobe staple to have on hand. The color is also a classic neutral, so it will be easy to wear with anything. Love that!

To test out Chanel New Dawn nail polish, I used one base coat, two coats of color, and no top coat. Chanel New Dawn is a cream nail polish which applies smoothly and streak-free. It is part of the Chanel Long-wear collection and does not chip easily. No top coat needed! Love that!

Chanel fall 2017 nail polish: Chanel Rouge Noir nail polish fall 2017

Chanel Rouge Noir nail polish for fall 2017 is oh-so-vampy! What was once know as the new Vamp, number 18 has now been named Rouge Noir, and it is the perfect black-red nail polish color. Rouge Noir by Chanel is also a nail polish wardrobe staple. This is a classic, deep, dark red hue which is great to have on hand when you want to be on the edgier side with your nail polish color. I love the mysterious vibe Chanel Rouge Noir offers. This is also a great color to wear with the fall 2017 1970s vintage trend. It seems to be the perfect color to wear with the trend. Love that!

Dark nail polish colors tend to chip easily, but I was pleasantly pleased to see Chanel Rouge Noir nail polish did not chip as easily as it’s counterparts. I tried out Rouge Noir by Chanel with one base coat, two coats of color, and no top coat. This is a cream nail polish which applied smoothly, and did not streak. The color was even, and saturated, with only two coats; this is hard to accomplish with darker polishes. It too is part of the Chanel Long-wear collection, which helps the nail polish not to chip.

The Chanel fall 2017 nail polish collection contains an edgy, yet classic, fall-like vibe with a neutral hue, a vampy color, and a new color invention. There seems to be a color for every occasion, yet all three colors will work well with any fall color palette. I love all three of these nail polish colors for fall 2017 by Chanel!

Which nail polish color is your favorite for the fall 2017 season? Are you loving one color; or more then one color from the collection?


YSL fall 2017 nail polish Studio 54 review

YSL fall 2017 nail polish collection Studio 54 review

The YSL fall 2017 nail polish collection is here! The YSL Studio 54 nail polish collection for the fall 2017 season is sparkling, dazzling, and so much fun! Love!

Yves Saint Laurent has introduced two sparkling nail polish hues for the upcoming cool weather season. “Bronze Fever” which is a sparkling bronze polish, and “Studio Silver” which is a dazzling white-silver glitter polish, are both glittering nail polishes which sparkle, shine, and make you want to dance the night away!

Metallics are still a hot trend as we move into the fall 2017 season. They graced the fall runways, and they are still hot on the street. Store buyers are also diving into the metallic trend and we will see metallic touches on apparel for the fall season as well as full blown metallic handbags, shoes, and accessories. This means rocking some sparkles on our nails is an easy way to wear the metallic trend everyday, without needing to think about it. Plus, who doesn’t want a party on their nails! Love it!

Here is my review of both nail polish colors from the YSL Studio 54 fall 2017 nail polish collection!

YSL fall 2017 nail polish: Bronze Fever

YSL bronze fever nail polish fall 2017 review

YSL Bronze Fever is my favorite of the two Studio 54 nail polish colors from Yves Saint Laurent for fall 2017. This is a beautiful sparkling bronze hue which is easy to wear during the day. Of course, the sparkles make it extremely festive for evening occasions as well!

I tested out YSL Bronze Fever with one base coat, and two coats of color. I did not use a top coat. The glitter in the polish helps make it really strong, so this nail polish does not chip! It is always nice to have polish on which is worry-free; it makes life a bit easier!

The bronze hue is a great neutral for the autumn season. It can easily be worn with any fall color palette; and it sparkles, so what’s not to love!!

YSL fall 2017 nail polish: Studio Silver

ysl nail polish studio silver fall 2017 review

YSL Studio Silver is a pale, sparkling glitter polish which really kicks up the glitz under lights or direct sun. This is a fun nail polish which I prefer to think of  as perfect for special occasions, or nighttime activities. Of course, it can also be worn during the day, I just prefer it for actual events.

I tested out Studio Silver by YSL with one base coat, and two coats of color. The Studio Silver glitter is a bit courser then the Bronze Fever glitter, so I found without a top coat, it has a bit too much texture; which is on the scratchy side. After one day, I applied a top coat and the texture/scratchy issue disappeared. I highly recommend using a top coat with this one!

With two coats, Studio Silver is a fabulous stand-alone nail polish color. I found with one coat, it could double as a glittering topper for black or vampy nail polish colors. Of course, even with one coat, you would need to apply a top coat to keep it from being scratchy.

Studio Silver is a color I plan to use more as the holiday season approaches. I like it for parties, or as a way to glitz up very dark nail polish. For everyday wear during the fall season, I plan to wear Bronze Fever. In fact, for this transitional period between summer and fall, Bronze Fever is my go-to polish! Love it!

The fall 2017 Studio 54 beauty collection is limited edition, so if you want to add some fun to your fall wardrobe, grab it now!

What do you think of the two nail polish colors from the YSL fall 2017 nail polish collection? Which color is your favorite?


Essie Speed Setter top coat review

pictured, both c/o Essie: portable iPhone charger / Essie Speed Setter top coat

I am so excited to talk about the new Essie Speed Setter top coat that just launched this month! As you know, I love to paint my nails. I often change my nail color, and enjoy playing with new colors. This can be a time consuming habit as I am also an extremely busy Mom!

With three kids, who have three sets of activities, and one of which I homeschool, I have my hands full. The last thing I have time to deal with, is a messed up manicure. After I paint my nails, I need to be able to get moving! Essie’s new Speed Setter top coat is a total game changer for me! It literally speed dries my mani! Love that!

The new Essie Speed Setter top coat not only speed dries my nails, it offers a high gloss shine which adds a bit of luxury to my nails. It also helps my nail polish last longer without chipping. This is key since my nails take a beating from house-cleaning, and being constantly on the go! You know the type of “on the go” I mean; when you don’t have time to take a breath or charge your phone! I literally have a case full of portable phone chargers to get me through life! haha

I’m in love with the new Essie Speed Setter top coat since it dries and hardens my mani in under one minute. I can continue with my life, and keep my kids on schedule; without worrying about my manicure chipping, smudging, or getting fabric imprints! (fabric imprints are so annoying!!) Love it!

You can find Essie Speed Setter online here.
