Today I came across an almost brand new display of the L'Oréal Color of Hope Fall 2011 collection today at Duane Reade, and was very impressed by the four nail polishes. I haven't come across any swatches yet so this was a very exciting and surprising find :) They are all just so pretty... and come on you can't break up the set... so I bought all four! Dear polish companies: small collections are great because it's very easy to justify impulsively buying the whole collection.
The four polishes in this collection are Whimsical, Devotion, Valiant, and Mystery. They are the perfect summer to fall transitional colors. For some reason, these four reminded me of the Sex and the City characters!

Valiant is a shimmery, foily, pewter metallic shade... picture a tarnished nickel. Valiant is a complex shade with a hint of warmth. This was the polish that made me stop and take a serious look at this collection. I actually didn't have very high expectations, but I'm very impressed with this polish! The brush is wide and Valiant applied well, needing only two coats. I hope the others are of the same quality. Would anyone with Chanel Graphite care to share how this compares?
Keep watch at your local drug stores for the L'Oréal Color of Hope Fall 2011 collection.
I do hope you stop back for swatches of Whimsical, Devotion, and Mystery!
