Trend Watch Wednesday: Polish Til It Shines


First of all, yes, I changed my look again : ) I just wasn't digging the pumpkiny background so much...I mean, it totally clashed with my cute, new pink button. Ya'll are women, so ya'll understand.

We all know that I have a slight obsession with small dogs and clothes, but I'm ever so quickly starting to get really into something else. Something cheaper than a pair of shoes or a cute bag....something that comes in a small bottle with a brush.

Yup, I'm really into nail polish right now. And boy, if you've been sticking to the same old reds and pinks like I have, you've been missing out! In the summertime, it seems like you have 20 varieties of hot pink for the toes, and pale pink or clear for the tips. Can we say boring? Yawn.....
Fall, however, gives us much more creative freedom to paint our fingers and tootsies just about every color of the rainbow. If you've always had that inner punk rocker just waiting to bust out, now is the time ladies. With dark plums, bordeaux reds and chocolate browns dominating the Chanel and Marc Jacobs fall runways, it's time to cross over to the dark side.
Remember, should you choose to try a really dark nail color, be sure to top it with a clear coat to avoid chipping and give it some shine. Otherwise it will look a little dirty : ) Here are some of my favorite nail colors for fall, at many different price points:
(left to right) OPI for Sephora in In the Shadows- $9, OPI for Sephora in Beauty Junkie- $9




(left to right) Rimmel London in Pulsating- $2.94, Givenchy in Purple by Night- $15(left to right) OPI for Sephora in I'm with Brad- $9, OPI for Sephora in Brunette on the Internet- $9




MAC Nail Laquer in Seriously Hip- $12

  4. I love the MAC Seriously Hip....it seems less harsh than the dark colors but still edgy. I can't wait to stock up on grey polish. I was totally thrilled to get my mani done in burgundy this week.

    xoxo!

  10. I love getting my toes painted. I think I'm actually going on Monday for a pedi !!! These colors are all awesome... I usually stick to my safe purples and pinks, but I am definitely going to try a "fall" color this time. I'm hoping to find just the right warm, coppery polish...

  12. I'm planning to take my nails super dark after the bffs wedding. It will be a major change after almost a year of a french manicure but I'm so ready for a change!
