Good evening lovelies! Soccer this morning really sucked the life out of me - as it would to anyone playing in 90+ temperatures. I've been laying low in the air conditioning trying to get some energy to do something, anything. So in my attempt to be both lazy and productive I grabbed a laptop and started editing pictures and typing up posts! I have a new to me brand to share with you today, Paint Shop Polish. If you head over to the shop you will see that there is a wide variety of polish in the shop, lots of finishes and colors for everyone! I even see quite a few cool collection; Vampire Diaries and Harry Potter anyone?! But this post features a few of the new Limited Edition Fall shades. Yup you heard me right, limited edition. So if you like one of the 3 I'm showing you today (or any of the other 6 from the collection) you'd better make your move quickly! The LE Fall collection is available now and you can choose mini ($6.50) or full ($12) sized bottles. So sit back, get comfy and let's talk polish!
Paint Shop Polish is Cruelty Free, toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, and formaldehyde resin free.
The first polish I have to share with you was my favorite of the 3 I was sent. This is Plum Skies. It's described as a plum purple linear holo. It had a fabulous formula and applied so nicely. It also had a more creamy finish compared to a more metallic finish that the others in the collection seem to have. Plum Skies was opaque in 2 coats and I finished with a layer of topcoat.
Up next is Autumn Wind, a "copper to rose gold to pink to purple color shifting polish." This is a gorgeous color! I love that it has fabulous Fall colors shifting around in there. I did find the formula fairly sheer but Autumn Wind built up after a few layers. Next time I wear it I will likely start with a nude base color because I had visible nail tips that didn't seem to want to be covered by the polish. I'm not quite sure what caused that to happen. I would suggest making sure each layer is dry completely before adding the next. While I did have those minor issues to bring up I still really enjoyed the polish and the beautiful color. I used 3 coats of Autumn Wind and a layer of topcoat.

Here's a little something for the brown polish lovers! Latte, Please! is a rich and luxurious chocolate brown holo. This is such a yummy polish. I found the formula a tad on the sheer side but the application was really lovely. I ended up using 3 coats of Latte, Please! for full coverage and topped it off with a layer of topcoat.
