Gelish fall 2014 “Get Color-Fall” review & giveaway
I feel like I may be just a tad late on the whole fall thing, but in my defense it’s been sweltering here up until about a week ago. Now that it’s finally cooled off I’m officially in “fall-mode, meaning jeans, boots, scarves, darker makeup, and now (thanks to Gelish) gorgeous fall nails. Want to see the beautiful new Gelish MINI colors? Lucky for you, I’ve got swatches and a giveaway of their new line, Get Color-Fall!
When this package arrived at my door I couldn’t wait to open it. I desperately needed some rich, deep colors to add to my gel polish collection after all of the bright colors I had been wearing during the scorching hot summer. The Gelish fall 2014 line delivered just that, coming up with 6 new shades that were inspired by the the brilliant colors of nature this time of year. Let’s get a close up look at these babies!
Do I Look Buff?
Do I Look Buff is a slightly shimmery nude color. If you look up close you can see the sheen, but it’s by no means sparkly. It’s fun, yet sophisticated. I applied 3 coats of this color and it was still slightly translucent, so I would probably add a fourth coat next time to get the coverage I like.
Clean Slate is probably my favorite of the collection. It’s a dreamy, slightly blue-ish medium grey color. It’s not too light and not too dark and has no shimmer or sparkle to it. This is the color I have on right now and it goes with a majority of my wardrobe. The little bit of blue in this sets it apart from all of the other grey colors I have.
Hello, Merlot! is what I like to call a rich, “wine” red. It reminds me of the color of wine with it’s slightly berry, pinkish tone. I’m not usually a fan of red polish on myself, but even I like this one. It’s very classic but not too bright.
Whose Cider You On?
Whose Cider You On is another one of my favorites. It’s a really fun, sparkly, cappuccino brown that is unlike any other colors I own. The tiny gold flecks in it are just gorgeous and add just the right amount of glitz and glam.
Berry Buttoned Up
Berry Buttoned Up surprised me because it was a lot brighter than I thought it would be. It’s a uniquely lush, shimmery purple color that really pops. This would be a good color any time of the year.
Rake In The Green
Rake In The Green is a dark grey/green color that was probably my least favorite of the bunch, only because it was really, really dark. It looked almost black to me unless you saw it in bright or natural light. If you like really dark colors this would be a good choice for you. I still like this color, I just wish it was a bit more green and less grey/black.
Now that we’ve seen all 6 of these Gelish Get Color-Fall shades, who’s ready to win a set of their own? I’m giving away a complete set of the fall 2014 line (6 bottles) to one lucky reader! You can also purchase Gelish MINI at Sally’s Beauty Supply.
