Polished for Days Fall 2016 Positive Life Collection: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hi guys! I have Polished for Days' Fall Collection to share today. This eight polish set is the Positive Life Collection, with each of the polishes having some sort of positive name association. 

This may be one of my favorite fall collections this year so far, with it's warm and earthly color scheme. Formula and application was really nice for each one, a couple were a bit thicker than the others overall I applied two coats for coverage for each of the polishes shown below plus topcoat. I am including the definitions for the names, provided by maker Jenna, because enlightenment is always a good thing. 

The Positive Life Collection will be available starting Friday, September 16th at 11 am PST in Polished for Days' shop

Polished for Days Ayurnamat
Two coats
Ayurnamat(n.) -  the philosophy that there is no point in worrying about events that cannot be changed
Dusky wine red creme with red/copper shimmer

Polished for Days Eudaimonia 
Two coats
Eudaimonia (n.) - “human flourishing”; a contented state of being happy and healthy and prosperous
Blush pink holographic with bronze, taupe and copper/gold/green color-shifting flakes
Blush all the things! It's a duskier color and the flakes add some more warmth.

Polished for Days Hanaemi
Two coats
Hanaemi(n.) - “flowering smile” ; a smile that is as beautiful as blooming flowers.
Ruby red linear holographic with bronze flakes
 A beautiful red with just a pink of pink in the coloring. 

Polished for Days Irenic
Two coats
Irenic (n.) - promoting peace.
Pink toned taupe scattered holographic with bronze flakes and copper/gold/red/purple shimmer.
This would be great nude of a number of people depending on your skin tone of course!

Polished for Days Meliorism
Two coats
Meliorism (n.) - the belief that the world can be made better by human effort.
Putty taupe scattered holographic with multi-colored holo glitter and violet/pink/gold color-shifting flakes
This is cooler in coloring compared to the previous polish, so while they are similar, definitely not the same. 

Polished for Days Ostranenie
Two coats
Ostranenie (n.) - encouraging people to see common things as strange, wild, or unfamiliar; defamiliarizaring what is known in order to known it differently or more deeply.
Champagne holographic micro glitter base with red/gold shimmer and copper/green/gold color-shifting flakes
This is one of my favorites of the collection. I can't resist the high sparkle effect and I love seeing the peeks of color in the base. 

Polished for Days Palinoia
Two coats
Palinoia (n.) - the obsessive repetition of an act until it is perfect or mastered.
Pumpkin orange linear holographic with gold flake shimmer
A pumpkin orange is exactly what you need to sweep in the fall season. This was the polish that was thicker in formula so thinner coats will work best. 

Polished for Days Querencia
Two coats
Querencia (n.) - a place from which one’s strength is drawn, where one feels at home; the place where you are your most authentic self.
Bright magenta linear holographic with violet/orange shimmer.
This bright pink is a pop of color in the collection, and on the cooler end of the spectrum.
