The fall 2018 nail polish collection from Londontown has arrived! These colors are so much fun; and right in line with the current color palette from the autumn season. Love!

The dark hues we are seeing in fall fashion right now are slightly vampy; this makes Vendetta a great nail polish for pairing with darker hues. The bright red shade is perfect for offsetting dark color palettes. Iconic is a bright blue which is ideal for pairing with fall’s brighter colors, while Kissed by Rose Gold and Jane Austen  are great alternatives to beige or neutral nail polish colors. Love this collection!

Londontown nail polishes are 9-free, which makes them easy to wear knowing they aren’t packed with harmful chemicals. Love! Without further ado, here are the house hues from the Londontown fall 2018 nail polish collection.

Londontown Iconic nail polish fall 2018

You know blue is my favorite color, so there is no question that I am in love with this bright blue for fall. Londontown Iconic nail polish is a fabulous, shiny blue hue which is bright and eye catching. It is a fabulous contrast to fall’s dark hues, and it also compliments the bright 1980s colors we are seeing this season in apparel. This is a great color to wear if you like to switch up your wardrobe and wear vampy black one day, and bright colors the next day.

Londontown Kissed By Rose Gold nail polish fall 2018

I love a good, metallic nail polish. Londontown Kissed By Rose Gold is a really pretty, sparkling rose gold nail polish. It’s a beautiful color for fall, and acts just like a neutral. Kissed By Rose Gold plays well with silver, yellow gold, or rose gold jewelry; so you don’t have to worry about mixing metals, it just works!

Since neutral nail polish colors such as beige or nude are not my jam, Londontown Kissed By Rose Gold for fall 2018 is the perfect answer to the neutral question. Plus, who doesn’t love a little sparkle?

Londontown Jane Austen nail polish fall 2018

If you are looking for a neutral color this fall season, and a metallic hue such as Kissed By Rose Gold isn’t your style, Londontown Jane Austen nail polish is perfect. This is my favorite color from the fall 2018 collection. It’s an unusual, pale lilac hue which is edgier than blush, pale pink, or lavender. It’s a cream polish which glides on smoothly and leaves a saturated color in two coats. I love this color!

Londontown Vendetta nail polish fall 2018

Red is the IT nail polish color for fall 2018. If you want to wear what’s hot, and be on trend, this is the color for you. It’s a bright red color which is slightly vampy, and offers a mild pink undertone. Londontown Vendetta is the perfect answer for fall if classic red polish is your jam, or wearing the IT nail color of the season is your goal.

I tested out all four colors with one base coat, and two coats of color. I did not use a top coat. As always, Londontown nail polishes are very chip resistant; and they happen to be 9-free and vegan. The polishes all offer streak-free applications, which have good color saturation. I also love the application brushes which are flat. The flat brushes make it easy to apply the polish without it getting all over your skin. Love that!

Londontown Brill-Ant nail polish review

Lilac is almost as popular as purple this year; after all, purple is the color of 2018. So when Londontown sent me this beautiful metallic, lilac nail polish, aptly named Brill-Ant, I was thrilled!

Metallic polishes are my jam, and shades of purple are as important to me as shades of blue, so this color is brilliant! Brill-Ant is brilliant! haha, love that!

This pretty, metallic lilac hue is fabulous for the end of summer. As we head towards the fall season, there will more shades of purple in the color palette, so the lilac hue is a fun way to ease into the purple hues we will be seeing more of this autumn. I also love wearing metallic nail polish when the sun is shining, nothing is more eye catching than when the sun sparkles on your nails. Love!

I tested out Londontown Brill-Ant with one base coat layer of Londontown’s Ridge Filler, and two coats of color. I topped it off with one layer of Londontown’s Top Coat. The result is a hard, chip-resistant manicure which is 100% 9-free, cruelty free, and vegan. So it is fabulous, and feel good; brilliant!

Londontown Kur Strengthening Lacquer Remover review

So raise your hand if you are tired of using harsh chemicals to remove your nail polish? My hand is so high it’s touching the moon! As you can imagine, I was thrilled when Londontown sent me their gentle and moisturizing Strengthening Lacquer Remover.

Londontown Kur’s Strengthening Lacquer Remover safely removes nail polish with it’s acetone-free formula. In addition to quickly removing polish, it conditions and strengthens nails while doing so! Love that!

It’s so luxurious to be able to remove my nail polish without my nails ending up dry, and in need of moisture. Since I change my nail polish often, it’s nice to know that the Londontown Kur Strengthening Lacquer Remover removes my polish without ruining my nails.

I was wearing a bright blue nail polish, as seen here, and I wanted to switch to the silvery hue shown below. If you have ever switched from a dark polish to a light polish, you know your nails can end up a mess. Polish can get stuck in your cuticles, and it can smear on your skin. A light color will oftentimes not be able to cover up the residue left by a dark nail polish; and red polishes are the worst! Thankfully, my nail polish came off easily with the Londontown Kur Strengthening Lacquer Remover so I can had clean nails to go from dark to light polish! Love!

This is definitely my new go-to nail polish remover. Nothing else is so gentle on my nails! I can change my nail color with ease, and without worrying about drying out my nails from an acetone based polish.
