“The women of San Francisco and the city itself really epitomize today’s multifaceted beauty consumer. San Francisco offers a European flair with distinct West Coast attributes. These elements inspired a collection of urban chic nail lacquer shades, thanks to the sophisticated combination of high fashion and eclectic street style.

The new colours, designed to accessorize Fall’s hottest looks (i.e. military details) range from garnets & ruby reds to blues and greys…..while the new Liquid Sand colours incorporate the texture trend seen on the Fall runways.  Below are a few of my favourite shades from the collection and one that I’ve recently added to my wish list. As soon as I saw Mary’s swatch of Alcatraz Rocks (see below) I just knew that I had to get my hands on it.

Haven’t The Foggiest is a grayish silver foil. The formula of this polish is  thick but it doesn’t streak and applies very easily. I recommend 2 coats for optimal wear.

Lost on Lombard, is a rich garnet red creme. It’s a great Fall colour!  This red with blue undertones looks best in 2-3 coats. Another great formula. 

Incognito in Sausalito is a really dark blue creme. In certain lighting this polish looks almost black but it has the most incredible blue subtlety. I will be wearing this one A LOT this Fall/Winter….

Alcatraz…Rocks is a gorgeous grayish purple Liquid Sand polish with purple and gold sparkle. It is so pretty and unique! While I do not own this polish YET, I will definitely be snatching it up as soon as I see it in stores.
