Fall is my favorite season mostly because of the colors. I love the muted shades and warmer tones that we see, so I was obviously excited for the new KL Polish collection, especially after last year's collection which is still one my favorites (I'm wearing Chloe as I'm writing this).
On September 12, they released a video promoting the fall collection and then had a one-day presale on September 13 for the full set. I purchased the full set on the pre-sale day and received it on September 15. That's what I love about KL Polish: their shipping is incredibly fast. That means I can put out swatches before the official release date of the Fall in the City collection. Individual polishes as well as the full set can be purchased today at 7 a.m. EST so I wanted to share swatches and thoughts with you on the new collection so you can decide whether you want to order all of the polishes or pick a few key shades for fall.
Warm, deep yellow with brown undertones
The KL Polish Instagram said this is a lighter sister of Caramello from their first release. It definitely shares the strong yellow undertones of the original shade. I thought this shade was going to need three coats because I could still see my nails after one coat, but it was completely opaque on two.
Deep metallic purple with black undertones
This was the shade I was most excited about from the fall launch. I love purple shades, and this one is the perfect color for a Halloween look without being too dark. Yzma honestly could've been opaque on one coat but I used two to make the color really pop. And how perfect would this shade have been for my Halloween costume three years ago when I was Yzma? RIP purple hair.
I think Jane is a great pink shade for people who don't really love pink. It's funny because Kathleen named this shade after Jane from "Jane the Virgin" which I've been binging since last week. Again, completely opaque on two coats.
Taupe shade with silver micro glitter
I love that there's a taupe shade in the collection for something a little more muted and subtle for fall. They definitely took a different approach by adding the silver glitter. It's such a fun twist on a classic shade. I thought this wasn't going to be opaque on two coats, but it was. I added a third coat, though, because my nails were slightly stained from 1435.
Kathleen always has a blue in her collections and I haven't been disappointed by one yet. This shade is similar to Cozy In There? from last year's fall collection but with a little bit of a warmer tone. I personally prefer Cozy In There? but this is a great alternative for someone who doesn't like cool-toned nail polish.
Metallic green with a gold flip
I didn't think I was going to love this shade but it's a really fun color for fall. It would be great for a Halloween look as well. This collection overall impressed me because even a shade like this was opaque after two thin coats.
