China Glaze Autumn Nights Collection: Part 2 "Gossip Over Gimlets"

Hi everyone! After a bit of a delay, I have the second half of the new China Glaze Autumn Nights collection. Don't forget to check out my swatches of the first half called "Strike Up A Cosmo."

While I really loved all, or almost all, of the polishes in the first half of the collection, I feel that this half is either hit or miss for me. Like the first six polishes, all the ones I'll show in this post have an excellent formula. But some colours are rather ordinary and worth passing on, unless you don't have anything like it already.

China Glaze Autumn Nights Collection: Part 2, "Gossip Over Gimlets"

Charmed, I'm Sure is a dark eggplant creme. Not a highly unique polish, but it's a great colour and if you don't have one like it, I highly recommend it. It's very pigmented and goes on perfectly smooth. It also has a great consistency and is not runny or streaky. This was 2 coats.

Gossip Over Gimlets is a silver-gold foil. It is mainly silver and if you look close you can see specks of gold. On it's own I find this rather bright and blingy - for lack of a better word - but I think this would be great as an accent nail or in nail art. The consistency was perfect and minimal clean up was needed. Overall the formula was excellent and it went on very evenly. This was 2 coats.

Kiss My Glass is a steel grey metallic. It looks very similar to Public Relations but is more of a blue/cool-toned steel grey. It also has a great formula like the others - it goes on smooth and is perfectly self-leveling. In the photos it looks like it is very frosty and brushstrokey, but this is less noticeable in person. This is another one I'm not too keen on as a full mani, but I think it would be great for nail art and stamping. 2 coats here.

Public Relations is a steel grey metallic with a slight purple tone. It's very close to Kiss My Glass in both colour and formula, so you probably don't need both of them. The formula was very good, it went on very evenly and smooth. However, I did have some issues with bubbling, but that might be user error. Like Kiss My Glass it appears to be on the frosty side, but is better in person. 2 coats.

Queen B is a dusty dark blurple creme. I love the colour and although it might not be the most unique, I don't think I really have anything like it. The formula is okay, but I found it was a bit runny and had a tendency to pool in my cuticles. Otherwise, it goes on very smooth and is perfectly self-leveling. This was 2 coats.

Rendezvous With You is a dark burgundy/purple foil with a silver shimmer. This is hands down my favourite polish of the entire collection - the colour is so beautiful and vampy with an amazing, eye-catching shimmer. Also the formula is perfect - the consistency was just right and minimal clean-up was needed. Like the others, it goes on very smooth and evenly, and while I used two coats here, it easily is a one-coater.

Out of this half of the collection, my favourite is Rendezvous With You, followed by Queen B and Gossip Over Gimlets. From the collection overall, my favourites are Rendezvous With You, Don't Make Me Wine, and Strike Up a Cosmo.

While some of the colours may not be the most unique, I think this collection is strong for having a variety of colours and finishes, also there's not a single polish with a poor formula. It really does get me in the mood for fall colours.

What do you think of this collection? Are any of these calling out your name? :)
