HPB Presents: Fall Faves!

Hey, everyone!

It's time for another Hobby Polish Bloggers (HPB) link-up! This month's theme was Fall favorites, any kind we wanted. Keep reading to find out what kind of things I picked for my Fall favorites!

If you'd like to know more about HPB, please check out what I had to say in my October link-up post! Since we had pretty free range for this month's theme, I chose to share my favorite polishes for Fall, as well as some of my favorite Fall-inspired manis from the past! So let's start with my favorite Fall polishes!


First of all, I love orange and orange-y red shades, so Fall is my favorite time of year for that reason (among others). For reds and browns, I really like wearing OPI Skyfall, German-icure, and A-Piers to be Tan. They're very woodsy-feeling colors and to me that really represents Fall well!


I love love LOVE orange polishes, and these are probably my two favorite that I own: OPI Deutsch You Want Me, Baby? and China Glaze Cross Iron 360. Although CI360 is fairly new to my collection, I fell in love with it instantly! These colors perfectly represent the changing leaves I see everywhere during Fall!


On to the cooler-toned polishes. I really love darker, dustier shades during Fall. The ones I find myself reaching for the most are China Glaze Agro, China Glaze Westside Warrior, OPI Mermaid's Tears, and Essie Go Overboard. There's just something about these colors that make me feel all cozy inside!


As for special polishes, I really like using these ones as the weather starts to get cooler: OPI Goldeneye, Polish Me Silly Dynamite, and Essie Shine of the Times. What fantastic polishes!


Last but not least for my Fall polishes, I use matte topcoats more and more towards the end of each year. The ones I use the most, although I honestly can't tell why I'd rather use one than the other on certain occasions, are Orly Matte Top and Essie Matte About You. They make any mani feel cozy and fuzzy! Well, not actually fuzzy, but they give me those feelings.

Now just a disclaimer, most of these designs are from last year and I personally think my photography skills and nail art techniques have improved a lot, but I still really like these designs. So please don't point out all the flaws because trust me, I know they're there! Since I've already written posts on all of these in the past, I'll just link to each mani under each picture. Enjoy!
















Wow, it's weird looking back on old manis... like they're not even my own fingers! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this little list of my Fall favorites! What are some of your Fall favorites? Do we have any in common? Let me know below! And be sure to check out the other ladies' posts for this month's HPB link-up!!! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I really like the chevrons but I will have to say Falling For Fall is just excellent. I love the stamping plate you chose, the acorns are just perfect.
