CPNA Beauty: Kokie Cosmetics Fall Polish Picks

Press Sample

Greetings, dear readers, and happy Friday and first day of Fall! In a previous post, I shared Kokie Cosmetics, a brand that I was introduced to while attending Cosmoprof North America in July. In my first post, I had shared my top nail polish picks from Kokie for the summer, and as promised, I am now back to share my Fall picks! Below are the shades that really caught my attention while at the show, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Let's check them out!

Cosmic Dust
Two coats plus top coat

Out of all the shades from this post, Cosmic Dust is probably my favorite! The dark charcoal base is loaded up with green shimmers that are much more obvious than my camera would capture. As the days get shorter, I particularly love wearing dark hues on my nails; this one certainly hits the spot nicely! The formula of Cosmic Dust is a little thicker than the rest of the polishes in this post, and thicker than a lot of mainstream polishes in general for that matter, and I LOVE it!

Under the Sea
Two coats

Hello, gorgeous! I've been finding myself particularly drawn to creme finishes recently, and Under the Sea is a fantastic choice for the fall! Rather than being a true blue, it has a hint of teal with a kiss of dustiness that I simply adore. The formula is also fantastically smooth so it was easy to fall in love with this beauty!

Euphoria
Three coats plus top coat

I went back and forth on my decision to include Euphoria in this post, but in the end, it is far too pretty to leave out. In the bottle, Euphoria looks like a gorgeous multichrome-like polish that shits from a darkened gold to green to indigo, and if this is what attracts you to this particular polish, I'm afraid you will likely end up disappointed. While there is the obvious shifting as you rotate your bottle in your hands, you likely won't see these transitions on your nails. This type of colour shifting seems to require extreme angles to be seen, and finger nails just aren't curved that much. Changing the light source and angles of my hands from my eyes didn't change things. So why am I still including it? If you can get past the disappointment of colour shifts, Euphoria is an exquisite golden bronze hue that screams HELLO AUTUMN! The formula is also super smooth and easy to apply with a minimal streaky finish.

Indulge
Three coats plus top coat

Indulge is a magnificent plummy shade although it has photographed a little more on the red side for me than it should have. It certainly is a very red leaning purple shade, but it is a little more purple than these photos will lead you to believe. Rich and creamy, it is another fantastic addition to your fall polish lineup!

Café Ole
Two coats plus top coat

If you aren't quite ready to make the leap from summery brights to fall vampy hues, Café Ole is the perfect solution! This neutral hue will keep you looking professional if you can't wear those darker shades at work, and even if you can wear whatever colours you want, it serves as a refreshing palette cleanser before you jump into your next shade. The formula is a little on the thinner side although it is still easy to work with. I ended up only using two coats for opacity for these photos, but you may find you need a third coat if you tend to paint with thinner coats.

There you have it, dear readers, my top five polish picks for the Fall from Kokie Cosmetics! I selected these particular polishes because not only are the colours on point for autumn, the formulas are really nice to work with and I love the assorted finishes. Now if only I can narrow this list down to what I should put on my toes this weekend.....

What do you think about my polish selections from Kokie Cosmetics for this autumn? Is there one in particular that is grabbing your attention? What types of colours and finishes do you like the wear during the fall? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
XO!

  14. I love the Indulge - perfect for a pedicure too! Cafe Ole is what I'd love to have on my fingernails - when it starts to chip it isn't as noticeable and gives me a chance to go in and get my nails redone.
