Lou It Yourself - Fallfetti Fall 2016 Collection (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have the Fall 2016 Collection from Lou It Yourself to share with you! The Fallfetti Collection includes six beautiful polishes that are certain to put you in the mood for some cooler weather! 

It's Fall Over Me is a gorgeous clear base topper that is filled with iridescent glitters in various sizes. The glitters have the most beautiful shift! They shift between red, orange, yellow, green and depending on the curvature of your nails, you might also see a hint of blue in there. They're amazing and appear like pure Autumn over a black base. Here I did two thin coats over Vapid's Pessimist. I'm seriously in love! They are glitter, so they will need a little extra scrubbing to remove.

Wooling it Over is a beautiful deep fuchsia creme. This has a perfect formula that was smooth and was right on the edge of being opaque in one coat. Here I did two thin coats plus topcoat.

Totally One Cidered  is a gorgeous mustard yellow linear holo! This covered really evenly on one coat, but was a little sheer. The second coat made it totally opaque for me. (I did want to note that I have a patch on my index nail and it did leave a slight yellow stain, but only on the patched area)

You Autumn Know is an amazing kelly green linear holo! Another fantastic formula that was opaque for me in one slightly thicker coat plus topcoat!

Shady as Hell is a buttery, medium gray creme, with a slight blue undertone. It is also filled with a beautiful blue shimmer that was really hard to capture on photo. This formula was wonderful and also opaque for me in one coat plus topcoat!

I Have the Scarves to Prove It is my absolute favorite of the collection! It is a blackened plum, almost navy blue, creme loaded with coppery red shimmer! It's stunning! In addition to being beautiful, this baby is opaque too! Here I did two very thin coats, but it could definitely be opaque in one slightly thicker coat depending on your application.

Do they watermarble? Yes! Here I used everything, but the topper for the watermarble and then topped it with one coat of Fall Over Me. It's like the ultimate Fall mani!

Do they Stamp? Yes! While they do stamp and show up really well over white, they aren't very noticeable over black. You can still see the shimmers/holo that's in them though, so if you're going for a subtle stamping effect over a dark base, they'd work.

I am seriously in love with this entire collection! This is actually my favorite Lou It Yourself collection to date! Every polish had a great formula, the colors are gorgeous and the names are all genius! If you can't buy the whole collection, I would recommend my favorites of I Have the Scarves to Prove It, It's Fall Over Me and You Autumn Know! Do you plan on picking any up? What are your favorites?

The Fallfetti Fall 2016 Collection will be available in Lou's shop on September 9th at 3pm MST! Each polish will retail for $8 each or $42 for the entire collection, plus shipping!

Thanks for reading!
