Polish Review: Glitzkrieg War Paint Fall Frolic Collection

Hey there, Witchie-Poos! I hope everyone is enjoying this, the evening of the last day of summer! Tonight I have for you six of the seven polishes in Glitzkrieg War Paint’s Fall Frolic Collection!



I will say right now, I absolutely adore pretty much any jewel-themed polish collection. They’re indicative of the fall months where everything is so beautiful and fresh.


Autumn Twigs is first up. Listed as a holographic cream with big, brown hex glitters.


It doesn’t seem like much in the bottle, but once you put it on the nail it just screams beautiful.


Two coats of Autumn Twigs and it reaches full opacity. It’s a gorgeous brown holo, which amazes me. I’m not one for brown polishes, but Autumn Twigs hits a heart string. I love the sparkle!


It dries super fast and to a mirror finish.


Next up is Pine Needles… Listed as a dark green jelly with hunter green glitter and teal matte hex glitter.


Isn’t it gorgeous?


It goes on like a dream, like most jellies do. I applied two coats and then covered with a topcoat.


I’m not much of a fan of greens, but I really, really like this one. It’s like the emerald city met the wicked witch and this is what they produced. I can totally see this becoming a part of my halloween costume!


Next up is Leaf Pile… It’s a sleeper, that’s for sure. It’s a brown jelly with small bronze hex glitters and larger transparent hex glitters. They look awesome, which really surprised me.


This polish quickly became one of my favorites in the collection.


I love how it shimmers and shines. This is two coats on all but the middle finger, which is three.


Isn’t it gorgeous? I can see it becoming one of my favorite fall polishes. Only problem I see, is that the one I was sent does not match the polish with the same name in the store. Not real sure what’s up with that Smile.


Next up is Gourds Galore. I LOVE this polish. Gourds Galore is listed as “a bright orange jelly with big, orange holographic dot glitter and tiny holographic rust-colored glitter.” and it doesn’t fail to impress.



It translates onto the nail awesomely and in two coats I love the opacity it creates.


And it’s so darned pretty!!!!!!


Next up is Hayride. Listed as “a bright gold jelly with gold flakes, gold holographic glitter and bright yellow matte hex glitter.” I love how this one shimmers and shines. It’s like a little pot of gold on your fingers.



Two coats and you reach a pretty decent opacity for a jelly polish. Three would have made it too heavy.


But it really does shimmer and shine!


Last but not least is my favorite… Wine By the Bonfire is listed as “a dark purple jelly with a selection of holographic and metallic purple glitters.”


My bottle shot doesn’t do this polish justice. Seriously.


It goes on wonderfully in two coats. Three again would have been too chunky. The hexes don’t always translate well, but that’s ok. I love the vampiness of this polish. It screams to me!


Heh. Now I got them to translate well. Ugh. But still. Goodness, it’s pretty isn’t it?!

All in all, these beauties from Glitzkrieg are AWESOME. The opacity is easy to reach, the dry time is minimal and the formulas are awesome. All except for the Leaf Pile problem on her Etsy store, they’re more than worth the money spent for them!

You can find these and other polishes (including Hardy Mum, which is the seventh polish in the collection) in her Etsy shop. At $8.50 a bottle, it’s a steal!
