My Top 8 Nail Polishes for Fall

Thought I would share the polishes that I just know I'll be using the most this fall! These are all OPI or Sephora by OPI. I do want to branch out and experiment more with other brands, especially since I don't care for how OPI treats beauty bloggers (my opinion)- example here. I only own one China Glaze (For Audrey) and have never tried ORLY, so if you have some favorite shades from those brands...feel free to share or just share which nail polishes you can't get enough of right now! :)

1. Russian Navy. This is my absolute favorite nail polish! I have really short nails and this looks good on them.

2. Brisbane Bronze. A shimmery bronze that comes alive when light hits it. It takes around two coats to become opaque.

3. Lincoln Park After Dark. This is a very dark purple. So perfect for fall! It even won for best nail polish color in Glamour's Glammy Awards 2010 in this month's issue!

4. Jade is the New Black. The brightest of my choices, but it is a jewel-tone which is always a winner during autumn.

5. Just a Little Dangerous. A shimmery dark purple, which has become my favorite go-to purple!

6. Go My Own Way. A nice metallic teal blue. Kind of makes me think of a peacock feather. It has tinges of the blue and green, if that makes sense. And I can't get Fleetwood Mac's Go Your Own Way out of my head every time I see the bottle! :P

7. Never Enough Shoes. A black with multi-colored glitter. It take a few coats to come alive, but the different colors of glitter set it apart from other polishes.

8. Nonfat Soy Half Caff. Great for a nude nail and for those that have to dial it down a notch for the workplace!

You have definitely given me some ideas of nail polishes to pick up my next trip to Sephora. I don't like the way OPI treats bloggers, but they have a great color range.

I like the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear colors, but I do find that cheaper nail polishes really need a top coat to last longer.

@Lillian- I know, right?! I want to hate them, but the colors are so great!

I'll be sure to look at the Sally Hansen range!

@Antonia- Ha! :) You know...I've never seen Sinful Colors here! I'm going to look for it. I'll definitely look at them when I go back into the States.

Adding those colors to my list! Thank you so much for your recommendations!

@Christine- I really need to check out that collection! I saw an ad for it in a magazine and thought they looked gorgeous. Note to self- must stop in at Trade Secrets! :D

I can't think of certain names off the top of my head but I've been in love with China Glaze recently! I just got Mummy May I and Ick-A-Body in the mail today. I can't wait to try them.

I really like Avon nail polishes. I never seem to need a top or base coat with them, I have minimal chipping, and they are cheap cheap cheap.
