China Glaze Rebel Collection Fall 2016 - My Picks

China Glaze released their Rebel Collection for Fall 2016.  It consists of 12 polishes in a mix of formulas including crème, shimmer, glitter, metallic and matte.  Here are my picks.

Heroine Chic is a charcoal brown metallic polish with red/pink-ish shimmer.  I liked this one more than I thought I would.  It's a great shade for fall and it's unique to my collection. 

Purple Fiction is a bright, somewhat metallic purple with pink shimmer.  LOVE!

Teen Spirit is a dark blackened purple with blue and purple shimmer. It's an extremely close dupe to the ever popular "Cosmo With A Twist" that OPI released last year.  I missed out on that one so I was thrilled to see this!
Combat Blue-ts is a royal blue matte.  As with all matte polishes, this dries extremely fast. It took a few attempts for me to get it somewhat smooth looking.

OPI Washington DC Collection Fall 2016 - My Picks

The Washington DC Collection consists of 15 shades, 3 of which are limited edition.  I found that many of the shades were dups of past polishes that I already have in my collection so, I only chose a handful.  Here are my picks:

Pale To The Chief is a pale nude with a teeny bit of pearl like shimmer.

Squeaker Of The House is a medium brown crème with a slight purple tone to it.

"Liv" In The Gray is one of the limited edition shades.  It's a greenish gray crème.

Shh... It's Top Secret! is a very, very dark (almost black) brown creme.  It's pretty much the exact color of semi-sweet chocolate and I love it!

Stay Off The Lawn!! is a dusty blue toned green crème.

Mary Kay Limited Edition Runway Bold Collection - Fall 2016

The Runway Bold collection by Mary Kay consists of 3 limited edition shades, two metallic shimmers and one crelly.  The formulas are all great!  I typicaly find that Mary Kay polishes are a bit thick, but that is not the case with this collection.  They nailed it! 

Gold Is Bold is a cool toned metallic gold shimmer.  I have a few gold polishes in my collection, but this one is gorgeous.  The application was buttery smooth and it has a beautiful bright metallic glow.

Rosy Encore is a rose gold metallic shimmer.  We know that rose gold is all the rage right now and what I love about this shade is that it is a true rose gold color.  Some shades can be a bit too coppery.  This one is right on the mark.

Blue Debut is an ink blue crelly.  It's darker in person than in the photo.  I love this one. Crelly and jelly formula polishes are my favorite. I love the squishy, shiney, look of them.  This one looks similar to gel polish on the nail.  LOVE!
