black cherries and pink frosting

i'm officially declaring it fall over here on the lily white english rose and that means the fires get lit, the cosy jumpers get worn, mulled wine is brewed, halloween costumes are made and, most importantly for this post, i say hello to dark shades of nail polish :)

my sister and i got prepared for fall nail wise when she was in seattle and these are our picks, we didn't realise how similar they were until we had each taken our photos lol. yes its another essie binge but i promise the next couple of weeks will be different just bare with me while i get these out of my system lol. first up devils advocate, a gorgeous deep purple shade, very similar to rimmel black cherries without the shimmer (a favourite of mine for years). the other two are my sisters combo, she loves colour so couldn't resist a cut above from the luxe collection (pink glitter) and paired it with wicked, again a very deep purple but with more red tones than devils advocate, for that autumnal feel.

  1. I've seen so many Essie nail posts recently and I don't think there's been a colour that I haven't loved. I definitely need to try this nail polish I think :) Both colours are lovely by the way.

    I found your blog on the Beauty Bloggers Club Blog Hop, followed! Love your blog :))
