It is a little surreal that Fall collections are starting to pop up when Summer is barely getting underway. Fortunately, it has not been ridiculously hot here lately, but I know that it’s just a matter of time before the heat really gets going. Last week I went looking for polish stuff at some of my usual haunts and lo and behold, I saw some of the new Fall collections. I did one of my usual grabby hands rituals and got way more stuff than I should have. Are you ready to check out the China Glaze Ready to Wear Collection for Fall 2018? Let’s look at my swatches below.

China Glaze Haute Blooded
First of all, I am missing 2 shades: Aut-umn I Need That and Mustard The Courage. I was super bummed that I couldn’t get the two missing shades because I get twitchy when I don’t have the whole collection. My beauty supply peeps told me that those two shades were backordered. I was soooooo looking forward to getting Mustard The Courage because it’s one of those interesting/ugly colors that I love so much. I may eventually pick that one up since it was the one I was most interested in. Now, let me get into the shades I did manage to get…MEH. I don’t know why I am so thoroughly underwhelmed by this collection. Some of the shades are really pretty, but overall I am feeling let down. I always look forward to China Glaze Fall Collections because they usually put out some really gorgeous shades. The most unfortunate shade in this collection is definitely Haute Blooded. It looks dreadful due to the matte finish…please stop doing these matte shades, China Glaze. Pleather Weather is another one that has an interesting finish: it’s kind of waxy/satin-like. The formula was a little unfortunate and I had to apply 3 coats–the third one was thick and I had to float it on the nail to smooth everything out. Chic Happens is another one of those ugly silver metallics that I have had enough of…since 2016. The cremes in this collection, with the exception of Throwing Suede which was hella streaky, were really beautiful. Those two blues and that green were delicious. They only needed two coats and applied beautifully. The three shimmers are also really nice–my favorite being Pay It Fashion Forward. Overall, I’m feeling pretty bored by this collection which makes me a sad panda. I’ll be placing them in my blog sale since I really don’t have room in my melmers for collections that I don’t absolutely love. Check it out on my blog sale page here.
So what do you think of this collection? Are you as disappointed as I am? Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.
