Yay fall is coming!

Jem and Penny
It's getting cooler around here which means fall! I love fall so much! I enjoy the tempature better than any other season. I decided to celebrate it's coming and try to fight off the blues that 3 days of rain brings you with a fall manicure.

I took part in Zoya's recent awesome promotion of buy one get two free. This is probably the only time I will be able to get Zoya since I tend to stick to polishes more in the $2 range. For this manicure i am using Penny and Jem.

As you can see Penny is a beautiful copper, I feel like a robot when I wear it hehe! I put Jem on my middle finger. I am not as impressed with Jem as I thought I would be. In the bottle it has a big shimmer to it, but it is very dark on my nails.

Polka Dots!!
I have been in love with Polka Dots lately. I dress my little one in them whenever I can the poor darling. So I decided to dress my nails in them today as well.

I did the Polka Dots with a toothpick. I don't have any special dotting tools so I make due. I think the dots came out smaller than I like so next time I will try a bobby pin.

Glitter Tips

The two survivors


what the heck did I do?
Once again I had a spectacular idea but I just can't sit still long enough to let it dry.

I put a base coat of a polish I picked up a couple years ago Revlon's Steel-Her Heart. That went on nicely in two coats. I then decided to sponge on Sally Hansen's Spectrum on the tip.

I then decided it would be a great idea to go type frantically and mess up all but two fingers. I really am a spaz. Spectrum is really a beautiful polish. I put a couple coats of it over a black base and couldn't' stop staring at my fingers. Of course I didn't take pictures (read spaz)

i love lifesavers

I haven't had my nails painted in a while, with all the craziness of preparing for Hurricane Irene I stopped taking care of myself as much as I should.  While the little one went down for a nap I thought i would squeeze in some nail care, after a load of dishes of course ;).

my old fall back

I did a half moon of course. I had picked up an angled brush for clean up as I have seen suggested in other blogs. Unfortunately I had crack hands and could not steady them for clean up or the glitter striper brush. Oh well at least I have polish on my nails!! The blue is the gorgeous My Lifesaver by Nicole by OPI. I love this color, it feels so feminine.

I put glitter on the bottom line because as I stated last post, Glitter fixes everything!
