School has started and hurricane season is upon us. That means one thing...fall is coming! Tonight, I have some lovely polishes that are perfect for autumn. butterLONDON has teamed up with Allure and created the Arm Candy Collection. This is a collection of 6 full sized, individual nail lacquers and a 4-piece fashion set of smaller bottles. butterLONDON sent me two sets of the 6 individual polishes, one for me and one for you! Make sure to check out my giveaway at the end of this post. This collection is a nice mix of rich cremes, a glitter, a metallic and a sheer. There is something for everyone this fall here. Let's take a look!
"Lust or Must?" is a cool toned dark brown creme polish. This is a beautiful deep color for fall. The formula was lovely and was almost completely opaque in one coat. I did use two coats and a gloddy top coat for these swatches. My photos are showing this a little darker that it was in person. It still had a brown hue indoors and didn't look like I was wearing plain black polish. Love it!
"It's Vintage" is a rust colored red creme with an amazing formula. This is such a great color for fall! I used two coats with a glossy top coat but could have gotten away with one thick coat. I can't wait to do some fall leaves nail art with with color and "Lust or Must?" Even though this color may not appeal to everyone, I think it will go well with many skin tones.
"Statement Piece" is a fiery red creme polish. This is bright and bold with a little orange undertone. Usually, I find these colors a little sheer but I was pleasantly surprised with this one. Two coats and it was full opaque but still had a bit of a squishy quality to it. The orange hint makes it much more of an autumn red than a Christmas red. The color and formula is very similar to Ladybird which I shared with you earlier, but Statement Piece is definitely more orange tinted. (stalk my Instagram feed for a comparison of them both in the future)
"Disco Nap" is a full coverage charcoal glitter polish in a black jelly base. I used two coats with a glossy top coat but you could wear this without a top coat to have a little bit of a textured effect. The formula was quite good and was easy to apply even though it was so glitter packed. I can see this being great for New Year's Eve!
"I'm on the List" is a champagne metallic creme. Hmmm....not my favorite. This type of frost finish can be difficult. You either love it or hate it. I used two coats with a glossy top coat for this swatch. The polish had a nice consistency and good coverage. I tried to be steady with my application to minimize brush strokes.
So, what do you think of this collection? Are you ready for fall? My favorites are Lust or Must?, Disco Nap and It's Vintage. You can order butterLONDON from their online store and selected retailers. I generally get all of my butterLONDON polishes from Ulta.
