China Glaze Autumn Nights collection review

Hi girls! I hope you're all having a great weekend so far! Mine has been kind of lazy, don't you just love lazy weekends?

Sooo... Today I have the China Glaze Fall collection to share with you, Autumn Nights. I was really excited by most of them when I saw the press release, let's see what they look like on the nails!

The Cremes

Queen B is a dusty blurple creme. It's more purple IRL than in my pictures, such a hard color to photograph! Formula was outstanding and a careful one coater. 1 coat plus topcoat. 

Charmed, I’m Sure is a dusty eggplant creme. Consistency was very similar to Queen B, slightly less pigmented and almost a one coater. I used 2 thin coats plus topcoat.

The Shimmers

Red-Y & Willing is a deep cherry red shimmer. It's a stunning color, maybe not as smooth as I would have hoped but I still love anyway. 2 thin coats plus topcoat here.

Don’t Make Me Wine is a magenta shimmer with the exact same finish as Red-Y & Willing. There's a little bit of brushstrokes here as well but application was fairly easy. I used 2 coats plus topcoat too.

Scandalous Shenanigans is a dark blue shimmer leaning blurple. This one also showed some brushstrokes once dry but it wasn't that bad. Amazing coverage and a true 1 coater, this is one coat plus topcoat.

Kiss My Glass is a dark gunmetal frost shimmer. Application was problematic here, so brushstrokey... I used 2 very thin coats, topped them with a combo of matte + regular topcoat and ta da! Prefectly smooth and absolutely gorgeous, matte topcoat made a world of  a difference!

Public Relations is purple toned grey frost shimmer with the exact same finish and application as Kiss My Glass. I also used 2 thin coats plus matte / regular topcoat in my swatches below.

Tongue & Chic is a dark teal shimmer. This one's super gorgeous, dark around the edges and with a lot of glow. Perfect formula, smooth and highly pigmented, I used one coat plus topcoat.

The Foils

Gossip Over Gimlets is a silver foil scattered with sparse golden particles. Perfect formula and pigmentation, extreme sparkle, I used one single coat for complete coverage.

Goldie But Goodie is a rust golden foil. I'm usually not a big fan of gold but this one's really interesting. Super sparkly and pigmented with a similar application to Gossip over Gimlets, I used one coat plus topcoat here.

Strike Up A Cosmo is a rose purple foil mixed with gold. Just as sparkly as pigmented as the previous 2, one coat plus topcoat below.

Rendez Vous With You is a really dark cool purple foil. So perfect for Fall, I don't think I have anything like it in my collection! Formula was just as perfect as the other foils, one coat for full coverage.

Overall :
I kind of have mixed feelings about this collection. The foils are amazing but apart from Rendez Vous With You, they aren't all that special. As for the shimmers, the colors are beautiful, I just wish they were less brushstrokey :(
My top picks : Rendez Vous With You, Tongue & Chic and Kiss My Glass (with matte topcoat!).

What do you think about this collection? Did you buy any of them? Did you manage to "tame" the brushstrokes?
