Now that the clocks have turned back and the weather keeps getting colder, it really, really feels like autumn. This fall color palette kick I’m on is perfect right now. China Glaze Urban-Night (Metro, Fall 2011) is a dark eggplant purple creme:

Picture taken in sunlight. (The sunlight has brought out the base color; this looks deeper and vampier in person.) This applied smoothly, though it looked streaky on the first coat. I did some slight filling in of bald spots and a thick second coat for full, even coverage. It’s definitely a warm purple, but doesn’t look too red (probably helped by how deep a shade it is.) Both the color and finish have an incredibly rich and creamy appearance. It’s also a great vampy shade , and although it’s deep and dark it always looks purple. I paired this with Orly Prince Charming on my toes.
