I have a bizarre & obsessive habit of photographing my fingernails quite frequently. That being said, I’ve accumulated a camera roll full of long lost manicures that never made their way to my blog or social pages over the last few months.
In an effort to free up some space on my phone, I recently uploaded all of the photos from my iphone to my laptop – giving me a chance to relive some of the fabulous mani’s that I had throughout the Spring/Summer.
I wanted to share some of those shots with my fellow mani-lovers, so I’ve pulled some of my favorites to post!
I tried to note any polish details that I remembered as well.
Clearly, my favorite place to snap a mani pic is in my car lol…it’s that natural lighting ;). There were so many fun colors the past two seasons!
As the colder temps are setting in, I’ve been wearing a ton of new Fall/Winter polishes. I’ve been posting them on my Instagram – you can follow me & check them out here! 🙂
There are so many wonderful things about the Fall season…one of which being the nailpolish collections! I’ve been perusing all of the new lines, trying to pick out my favorites & I’ve somehow narrowed it down to my top 6!
c. Gelish – Get ColorFALL Collection – “Clean Slate” [Swatch from Chickettes.com]
d. OPI – Nordic Collection – “Do You Have This Color In Stock-Holm” [Swatch from peachypolish.com]
e. Gelish – Get ColorFALL Collection – “Whose Cider Are You On?” [Swatch from Chickettes.com]
f. Deborah Lippmann – New York Marquee Collection – “Lullaby of Broadway” [Swatch by alllacqueredup.com]
I could have written a small bit about each one, but it would just be me gawking over how gorgeous each shade is & how I need it in my life! I love that everything is not deep and dark – the shimmer, the metallics, the lighter/creamier colors are so refreshing to see!
I hope to pick up a few, if not all of these this season.
Do you love Fall nailpolish?
Have you spotted a fun new shade that you can’t wait to get your hands on? Let me know below!
Don’t you just love when two of your favorite things fabulously collide?!
Who watches GIRLS? I’ve been a huge fan since day 1. I literally counted down to the premiere of the first season after weeks of teasers and trailers continuously diluted my television. After the first episode I instantly fell in love with everything about the show; the writing, the acting, the messages, the simplicity. I think most girls can relate to the characters in some way or another (I think I am a healthy combination of Marnie & Shoshanna lol).
Well, the brilliant Lena Dunham & HBO are bringing those fabulous chicks back on January 13th for season 2 & I am so excited. To make the premiere even better, Deborah Lippmann has recently debuted a limited edition GIRLS inspired polish line! Four colors, each of which is representative of one of the girls.
The crazy thing is that before I even saw the colors, I had a vision of what each would be, and I was nearly spot on! I wouldn’t have gone with any other shade for Marnie & Jessa, I did picture a purple for Shoshanna, however my version would have been a brighter more vibrant/neon/deep purple. Hannah is definitely a cooler-tone, I initially thought a blue, but the green works just as well!
Either way- I was pretty darn close… I think that says something about what I’m meant to do in life! Someone get me into a polish company! Deb, OPI, Essie, ZOYA, China Glaze, Gelish…I’m looking at you!! 😉
Okay, back to the collection… I can’t help but note that this line is similar to some of my other favorites…
The entire line is $45 and available for pre-order here! Shipping will begin mid-January.
Let me know if you order, and how you like the collection! I know I will 🙂
Fall is one of my favorite times of year…the colors, smells, food, and fashion- to die! Not so lucky for us on the East Coast, this Fall has been aggressively interrupted by Hurricane Sandy, and most recently this friendly little Nor’easter named Athena. While my state, and town are currently buried in fresh white snow, I wanted to bring it back and remember that regardless of what we may feel…winter is not here yet!
To help get back in the mind set, I picked out some of my absolute favorite things about Fall 2012 thus far- enjoy!
Those are just a few of my favorite things this season! What are you loving about Fall this year? Let me know 🙂
Even though I have been on a gel-hiatus the past couple of weeks, it hasn’t stopped me from stocking up on new polishes. My preferred brand of gel nail polish, Gelish, recently came out with its Spring 2012 Candy Land Collection, and I couldn’t resist these new colors!
I visited my local Sally’s Beauty Supply store a few weeks ago, and picked up the two new pink shades…
“Sugar N’ Spice and Everything Nice”…
and “You’re So Sweet You’re Giving Me a Toothache”…
These colors are perfect for the Spring! I’ve worn both already- I can’t decide which is my favorite… “You’re So Sweet..” is basically the gel equivalent to Essie’s FIJI- one of my all time favorite colors .
“Sugar N’ Spice” is so bright and fun! I got tons of compliments on it 🙂
I can’t wait to pick up “Sugar Daddy” and “Don’t Be Such a Sourpuss” next! “Sugar Daddy” reminds me of the blue manicure I was wearing last week…
My current lilac manicure color would fit perfectly into this gel collection! If only… sigh.
Have you tried any of the colors from the Candy Land Collection yet? Which are your favorites?
