(L->R) Serum No. 5 Samba-dy to Love, Second Spring,
Best Witches, Rise and Grind

Hey guys! Today I have the last 4 polishes from Serum No. 5's Fall/Winter Collection. GLITTERRRRR! These glitters contain 3 new glitters and a reformulated glitter. If you missed the other 2 parts, check here and here. Check tout the glitters after the jump!

This was the first glitter polish from this collection I swatched and the combo blew me out of the water tbh.  Samba-dy to Love is a mix of red, orange, blue and purple glitter. These colors are beautiful together, reminds me of a sunset!

I did 2 coats of Samba-dy to Love over Serum No. 5's Acai of Relief. These two play amazingly together. Samba-dy to Love gave me no issues. It covered well, was easy to apply and dried quickly.

It's funny, on Serum No. 5's description of this polish is one of my favorite sayings: "Albert Camus said it best: Autumn is a Second Spring when every leaf is a flower". In this ivory, white shimmery base you will find purple, yellow, green, blue, and pink glitters. While I don't think white-ish polishes look too great on me, I do like the colors and the light airy feel of this polish.

I did 3 coats of Second Spring plus top coat. It was a little on the thicker side than I like white polishes, but it was manageable. I would wait between coats to allow proper drying, or use Seche Vite like I do :P

To me, Best Witches is the most unique in this glitter polish set in the collection. In this dark grey jelly base you will find silver micro squares, white squares, grey, lavender, yellow and iridescent hex. The colors are so unique but work together so well. I also like the variety of glitter shapes in one polish.

I did 3 coats of Best Witches plus top coat, it was a little on the thirsty side. I didn't have any issues with this polish. The application and dry time were great!

This is a reformulated, re-released polish. It has been reformulated to be darker than the previous Rise and Grind version. This is still one of my favorite Serum No. 5 polishes. It is a deep espresso brown base with black and gold micro glitter, brass and white hexes mixed in. As a coffee addict, I guess it's fitting I like this polish so much ;]

I did 2 coats of Rise and Grind. It gave me no issues at all. The application was great and the larger glitters came out without problems. The dry time was perfect.
