Apple Harvest Ready

Posted by Kimberly Purcell at 9/16/2010 08:01:00 PM
After I got out of college, I began to love fall.  No more starting school!!!  But, it also meant the end of a 3 month vacation.  Hello, adult life.

And, as I get a bit older (hey! it's rude to ask!!!), fall is a pleasant temperature season.  I AM a sweater girl.  I love wearing boots.  I adore flannel sheets!  I SO live in Florida!  Hmmmm....

In a previous post, I showed this set I got from Icing...
Yeaaahhhh!  My first fall collection of the year!!  Yummmy!!

First one tested....
A creamy red that is orange/yellow based.  Icing doesn't name any of these.  And that gives me a chance to "NAME THAT COLOR!!!!"

I, hereby, dub thee "Harvest Apple."
It's cute, I do like it.  However, I think blue reds are better for my skin tone.  But, since I am in a (hurry up and get here!) fall mood, it fits.

This is 2 base coats, 2 coats of Harvest Apple, one Seche Clear and then Seche Vite.  It wore like crazy.  Consistency is a bit thick and would be much easier to manage on my fingers.  And the stupid little top and brush...it will put a scowl on your face.

The price wasn't too bad; $8 for the entire mini set.  And, I still see this fall collection in the Icing stores.  So they are not flying out of the store.  But then, I figure since it is 'mostly' a young girl's boutique store, that audience isn't into these shades of polish anyway.

Which looks better on you: orange reds or blue reds?  Do you have a 'rite of passage' fall color or shade?

Cute! I like these. I might need to go back to Columbia to pick these up.

Blue reds are definitely more my color (I have too much yellow in my skin tone for orange reds to work). I don't really have a specific fall color...yet. I just started this whole polish obsession a couple months ago. I guess I'll be finding that out sooner rather than later. Great post!

Nice fall colors. Can't wait to see the rest of them swatched. Nothing like 'walking' into fall, eh? lol
