Polish Pickup September 2017 - Fall Foliage & Fun (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Exciting post ahead! I can't begin to tell you how honored I was when asked to be the guest swatcher for September's Polish Pickup! I was even more happy when I found out the theme was Fall Foliage & Fun! I freaking LOVE Fall! Maybe it's because I am an October baby, or maybe it's because I absolutely loathe the heat, but man oh man....I love the cool crisp Fall air, mountain drives, hoodies and changing leaves, plus I'm a #pumpkinallthethings girl at heart!


Enough blabbering...there are a lot of polishes to show you! This will be a very picture heavy post!

Rime Time - $7.00



Rim Time is a shimmery white jelly base filled with iridescent microglitters. This looks a little silver in the bottle, but is definitely more of a white when applied.  Here I did two coats plus topcoat. Depending on your application, you may need to add a third coat. It dried a little dull and slightly textured, so a good topcoat is needed. This will also need a little extra scrubbing to remove due to the microglitter.
