Alter Ego: Fall Harvest Collection, Fall 2018

Evening y'all!  The hubster is working on making some ribs in his new smoker, and I was looking for an activity to do with the kids but sadly the Winchester Mystery House Candlelight Tours are sold out, booooo.  So maybe we can go to a movie together?  I dunno, he said the ribs are going to take a long time.  So while I figure out out night I thought it would be nice to share another fab Fall collection that is currently available.  Alter Ego created the Harvest Colors collection, perfect shades for the season!  They are $9.50 for each 17ml bottle, or you can get the set of 7 for $51.  Also, don't forget that you can save 25% using my code My Nail Polish Obsession.  Alright, let's check out the polish!

*I finished off every mani with a coat of Alter Ego She Shines Topcoat*

I couldn't resist putting this one on first!  It's I Can See Your Halo and it's a beautiful metallic gold with a slight holo shimmer.  Very luxurious color and I'm wondering if it will stamp?  Hmmmmm.  Formula and application were both really lovely, I used 3 coats and finished with topcoat.  You can see that I still have some VNL but as I have mentioned to you before, I have extremely white nail tips.  

Sass Squatch is a soft yellow mustard color with subtle holo shimmer in a jelly formula.  This one was super sheer on me, as you can see.  I love the color and wish it were more opaque.  I will likely use a matching base color underneath it next time I wear it.  I used 3 coats and finished with topcoat.  

Here's one of my favorites, Orange You Glad It's Fall.  It's kind of a deep maize color with holo shimmer and it's GORGEY!  Formula and applications were both fabulous, no complaints here.  I used 3 coats for full coverage (2 would have been fine) and finished with topcoat.  

My other favorite of the collection is Tin Roof Rusted.  It's a rusty orange with holo shimmer.  Such a perfect Autumn shade, I just love it!  This one also had a really great formula and applied so nicely.  I only needed 2 coats of this one for full coverage.  Finished it up with a layer of glossy topcoat.  

Moving along into a different part of the color wheel.  Here's Don't Pesto Me, a perfectly pesto green shade with holo shimmer.  Another very creamy and opaque formula.  It applied so easily and most will only need 2 coats for full coverage, but I went ahead and did 3 to ensure I had no VNL. Glossy topcoat used.  

Pour Me A Glass (yes please!!) is a perfect berry jelly with holo shimmer.  Absolutely reminds me of a nice glass of red wine, which I could really go for right now.  But because this one is more of a jelly formula it is more sheer than the last few that I shared.  3 coats built it up just fine.  Topcoat to finish.  

And finally we have Moonless Night.  It's a stunning dark blue holo full of holo shimmer that creates a gorgeous "night sky" look.  No problem with formula or application, covered well in 3 coats, but again, 2 would be fine.  Used glossy topcoat.  But upon removal I did have staining on my nails, skin and under my nails.  So be sure to use a good base coat or a peel off base coat to save yourself from turning blue!
