Lilac

Happy first day of October;

Sharing with you all a quick manicure I rocked this last week. I also painted my toes the shade of lilac and am absolutely obsessed with it, it is supper cute and reminiscent of summer while still being appropriate for fall.

#MonthlyMani | Autumnal Hues

The Autumn season is associated with burnt orange and other festive yellow shades mainly, I think, because of the leaves and overall crispness in the air. However, when I think of Autumnal hues I’m drawn to darker versions of my summer favorites like dark greens, navy and dark reds.

The color I chose for this months #MonthlyMani link up is a deep purple which I used to create a v shaped half-moon mani. I finished the look off by applying a matte top coat both to help the polish last longer and to create a fun, non-shiny texture. It’s a bit messy and uneven because I didn’t use tape to make the v but I really like that it looks diy.

Romance In Bloom

It’s the third Wednesday of the month which could only mean one thing… #MonthlyMani baby!

August is the national romance awareness month (still have no clue what that means) so we thought it appropriate to do a theme around that and so romance in bloom was born. I took this theme a bit literally as inspiration both for the nail polish colors and the design of the manicure, a sort of nod to mod.

I choose to use a vibrant green and white nail polishes to create this manicure.

First, I used the green nail polish as the base by coloring half of each nail with it.

I then used my dotting tool to create two to three flowers on each nail. The whole look reminds me of Twiggy with her color block shift dress, white platform boots and gorgeous eye lashes, very 60’s and grooving.

I Pink Your Gray

I was reading through the Instyle Your Look special issue when IΒ  came across a picture of a woman wearing a beautiful pink trench coat over a gray sweatshirt. The pale pink and light gray seem so spring but when worn in thick, fall appropriate clothing that color combination becomes edgy and breaks the rules of “proper fall colors”.

Inspiration from Instyle's your look special issue

I wanted to capture that in my nail art so I used these awesome shades of pink and gray nail polish.

The reason this outfit caught my eye is that it is so simple, no embellishments, no bells and whistles. I wanted to carry that into the manicure so I started by painting my nails pink and my pointer finger gray, as an accent nail. Then, I created an exaggerated french manicure using the gray over pink.

Man, spending the entire day in bed watching Hallmark movies, browsing through my fave Tumblr blogs and listening to music while eating delicious and healthy food is how every single friggin’ day should be spent! I feel so relaxed and happy!

I hope you are having a wonderful week so far.

I did a fun and quick manicure today where I layered two different colors of nail polish to create a fun look. It didn’t turn out as perfect as I wanted but I think that is what I like about this nail art the most, it is flawed!
