I Love Nail Polish: Black Orchid, Fall Sememster & Homecoming

Good evening lovelies.  I'm ready for the Fall aren't you?  Can the weather turn cooler already, please?  Who do I call to make that happen?  Well if I can't enjoy a drop in temperature yet then I should at least be able to enjoy Fall colored polish!  Tonight I have some gorgeous I Love Nail Polish from the recently released Fall Collection so let's take a looksee and imagine those crunchy fallen leaven, crisp air, the smell of wood burning in fireplaces and the taste of hot apple cider.

Let's start with Black Orchid, the one from the collection that really drew in my eye.  Simply put, I am a sucker for any and all deep, vampy colors that fall in the merlot/burgundy family.  Black Orchid is amazing and exactly what I wanted it to be.  It seems to have a blend of scattered and linear holo.  The formula was perfect.  I used 2 coats of Black Orchid for full coverage and no topcoat.   






Homecoming is another fantastic color - a deep purple with a nice dose of gold micro flakes.  I'll admit I am not the hugest fan of purple polish, but I had to have Homecoming...and I am so glad about it!  The flame on this polish is pretty nuts too - a very vibrant blue.  I again see a mix of scattered and linear holo.  Homecoming had a great formula and applied very nicely. I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.

Last but not least, Fall Semester.  This dark teal is stunning.  Aside from the holo I also saw some gold shimmer and blue/green (shifting?) micro flakes.  The formula and application were both awesome.  You'd only need 2 coats of Fall Semester for full coverage but I had a wonky brush so I did 3 coats to ensure I painted evenly.
