Revlon Autumn Spice + Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello strangers! About time I updated again eh? Today I'm featuring one of the new Revlon scented nail polishes, Autumn Spice. I actually managed to snag the last bottle from the display so this particular shade must be fairly popular even with the non-polish obsessed.

This swatch is two coats of Autumn Spice with a base of OPI Nail Envy and is topped with NYC Grand Central Station. The formula was easy to work with and surprisingly tidy to clean up in spite of all the particles in the polish.

Autumn Spice is a warm, dark chocolate brown with strong reddish orange shimmer particles. It's definitely been the most swatched from the Parfumerie Collection, and smells faintly of warm holiday spices. Personally I didn't think the smell was overwhelming or offensive when I was polishing, and it faded considerably when topped with top coat and dried. Although if you're sensitive to scented polishes or tend not to like traditionally "fall spice" scents you might want to skip this one.

The bottle itself of this collection is quite appealing. Despite the round black cap being plastic, it still lends a high end feel, and the glass bottle is weighty and the corners are nicely beveled. The brush was a nice medium width and easy to control and work with.

Well, I'm off to stuff my face with delicious once-a-year foods and watch the Macy's Parade and the following dog show. Every previous year we've always watched for the Great Danes in the dog show, but since our Dane passed a few years ago and we acquired a new puppy last christmas, we'll be looking out for the Bernese Mountain Dog. Does anyone else watch the dog show and single out your current dog's breed? What are some of your Thanksgiving Day traditions?

What is on your nails this holiday? Let me know in the comments! Thanks so much for reading and I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving if you're celebrating!
