Pear Nova - Fall Ready to Wear Collection: Swatches, Review & Nail a Giveaway!

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you enjoyed your weekend! I have the new Fall Ready to Wear collection by Pear Nova to share today and I'm also excited to announce that we have a great giveaway opportunity as well! Read through to find out how to enter.

I was immediately drawn to this new collection - the colors are striking yet very much what you hope and crave to see in a color palette for fall. Pear Nova takes inspiration from current runway trends and creates what I think are some really nice polishes. Let's take a look!

Jaded Auras is a rich jade green creme with a lovely formula. It's the quintessential fall shade! And it's stunning with this whole collection. Great formula and is almost a one coater! Shown is 2 with top coat.

Glamher is a lovely coppery gold micro-glitter that looks so pretty in the light! I do wish the glitter in this was a tad bit denser, but I was still able to reach opacity in 3 easy coats.

Partially Nude is a peachy nude creme that leans almost brown in certain light. It's a great neutral that can be worn for all occasions which I think is great for any collection to include. The formula was once again really nice and shown  is 2 easy coats.

U-taupe-ia is a dark taupe creme polish that feels so incredibly earthy and fully fall. I love it! It's a great shade and had a great formula. Shown is 2 coats.

The Violet Hour is a delicious violet creme that might be my favorite of the bunch! It's so flattering on the nail and you really can't beat that! The formula was once again really nice and shown is 2 breezy coats.

I also did some nail art using The Violet Hour and Partially Nude...I really love how that turned out! And of course, mattifying had to happen..

Overall, I really like this collection. It's a beautiful set of polishes to look at and I think it's great for fall! I will say, the only semi-negative thing about these polishes (and that is by no means a deal breaker) is the bottle they're in. I like the unique shape a lot, but the mouth of the bottles are very large and since the bottles are tall and narrow, I'm terrified I'm going to knock them over and have polish spill everywhere. But like I said, definitely not a deal breaker for me. The polishes are pretty and formulas are great so no real complaints :)

You can purchase the Pear Nova collection from their site now for $45 or individual polishes for just $10 each.
