Night Owl's Almost Autumn Collection & August COTM

*Products shown here were provided to me as press samples in exchange for photos and feedback. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

Tomorrow Night Owl will be releasing a stunning quad of polishes dedicated to the most wonderful season of the year: Autumn! This collection was inspired by maker Lindsay's impatience for it to be fall already, as it is her favorite season. I think many of us can agree there! August's new Creme of the Month will also be available, so I have my thoughts on it down below as well.

All these polishes are set to release Sunday, August 29th at 6:00pm Mountain Time (8:00pm Eastern Time).

Almost Autumn Collection

"Autumn Daydreams"

Price: $11 individually | $46 for full collection

Description: This is an olive green filled with gold galaxy holographic micro glitters. Shown in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is my personal favorite of these four! It’s just such a unique polish! The chartreuse or pear shade is perfect for fall. It also reminds me of pickles for some reason. Lol. The glitters are highly holo and shine beautifully in the jelly base.

"Be a Fungi"

Price: $13 individually | $46 for full collection

Description: This is a warm brown filled with pink/gold/green aurora shimmer. Shown in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This one is gorgeous, but was somewhat hard to photograph. It has a rusty-pink colored forefront shift, but it was very hard to capture on camera for me. But it is a super shimmer-packed polish that is amazingly shifty with a perfect, nicely opaque formula.

"I've Been Waiting For You..."

Price: $13 individually | $46 for full collection

Description: This is a linear holographic burgundy with red/copper/gold multichrome shimmer. Shown in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: What a wonderful burgundy linear holo! It applies smooth as glass and has a super strong holo flash. I actually thought it looked very nice when matte, although the majority of the holo flash is gone.

"If Only it Was Always Autumn"

Price: $13 individually | $46 for full collection

Description: This is a midnight blue filled with orange/copper/gold aurora shimmer. Shown in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is a beautiful, deep blue packed to the brim with super shifty shimmer! It is kind of a sister polish to “Be A Fungi” in that the formulas and density of the shimmers are very similar. Application is a breeze and brush strokes don’t seem to be an issue.

August's Creme of the Month

"Summer's End"

Price: $8

Description: A rich purple creme. Four finger swatches show a single coat, left with no top coat to show natural gloss finish and matte top coat. Also I have it shown stamped over Night Owl's "Surprise Me" [previous PR] along with "It Mustard Been Love" [purchased], using the plate CjS LC-04 by Clear Jelly Stamper [purchased]. I also did a quick comparison to both "Plum Intended" and "Bruised Not Broken" [both previous PR]. The Creme of the Month is inspired by the month it is released for but it's availability is not limited to that month, it will be available for at least 3 months.

Thoughts: This is a great, classic royal purple. It has a wonderful consistency and perfect single coater opacity. The colors do seem to separate in the bottle, but this does not seem to come through in swatches as the color is nice and even. As for the stamping, I'm no stamping expert, so I did end up with some bubbles (blank gaps) in my stamps. However, I did notice the lighter the touch when rolling the stamper on the plate, the lighter and less frequent these bubbles or gaps were.

Again, all these beauties are set to release Sunday, August 29th, at 6:00pm Mountain Time (8:00pm Eastern Time), at nightowllacquer.com!
