Evening! It was a fairly restful day for me. I had a nice afternoon shopping around the Halloween aisles at Target. I picked up a few decorations because all of my standards are packed away in a POD while we are re-doing the house. Yes, literally right before the arrival of baby #4. No, it won't be finished in time. No, I have no idea how we are going to manage but we will. Tonight, while the kids finish up homework and clean up I wanted to jump on and share a gorgeous and fun Fall collection with you. This is the LeChat Color Me Autumn Collection. It's currently available on their site and it's absolutely worth checking out! I love their take on Autumn and LeChat has really been slaying with colors and formula lately. These are a steal at $6.95 each! Alrighty, let's check them out.

You know I usually go in rainbow order and if that's not an option I go lightest to darkest. So I started out with Cashmere. This is a perfect palette cleanser and a great shade to start off some nail art. It's also great for multiple seasons! It's officially described as a soft dusty rose. Sure, I can get behind that description. While I enjoyed the color, the formula was a bit finicky on this one. I normally need 3 coats to cover my nail line but I needed 3 coats to level out the polish this time. IT did have a nice glossy finish though. 3 coats, no topcoat.
Brown Sugar is a gorgeous mauve pink with brown undertones. Great every day shade, and actually works perfectly for the Fall! I have so many shirts in this shade at the moment, definitely a color for the season. Great coverage and formula. No problems to report. I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.
Here's Brushed Blush, a coral pink creme. This is where the collection gets interesting for me! I don't typically think of coral when I think Fall. But you know what, it's a gorgeous color and I will totally rock it! It's going to look fantastic with a brown/navy/cream shaded outfit! Talk about the perfect pop of color. Formula was a bit sheer on this one but it works itself out alright in 3 coats. Just a bit of VNL left. No topcoat used.
Harvest Moon is my favorite of the collection. Are you really surprised? This is a phenomenal burnt orange shade that somehow is uber vibrant! It's a creme formula, maybe more crelly as it does apply fairly sheer. My IRL eyes really see the VNL but it's not as noticeable as in the pictures. I used 3 coats and no topcoat.
Painted Maple is a very unusual shade! I'd label it as a dusty red with pink undertones. It's definitely unique as far as reds go so if you are a red lover you should totally snag this one. All great things to say about the color, formula and application. No problems here! 3 coats and no topcoat needed.
And finally we have Bittersweet. There is no doubt about it that this is a classic Autumn shade. It's a deep burgundy creme that exudes vampyness. I will absolutely be wearing this one again, as well as the others in this collection. Formula and application were both great, no issues to report. 3 coats and no topcoat.
I did a little art with some of the shades in the Color Me Autumn collection. I started with a base of Cashmere. Then using the saran wrap method I dabbed on Brown Sugar and Bittersweet until I was happy with the look. I used some topcoat to gloss it all up and that was a simple and beautiful mani!
