Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday!
Here in Halifax we’re currently bracing for a big tropical storm to hit, but I still wanted to share some fun Fall nails I did recently. My posting has been a bit sporadic the last few weeks because of work, & family stuff, but I’m really trying to get back into regular posting again! Especially since next month is my favourite Month of the year!
But first: nail art. I always like to do a plaid design at least once a year, & I was really feeling this dark blue shimmery shade that I found hiding in my stash. It was just screaming for some nail art! After glancing at my favourite Fall dress hanging in my closet, I knew exactly what design I wanted to recreate on my nails. I was a little nervous about free-handing stripes, but I was so happy with how they turned out!
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails
- Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
- China Glaze New Year, New Boo
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Grey Area
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod
- Essie Mosaic On Down
- Quo By Orly Breathable The Antidote
- NailStuff.ca 16mm Striper Brush (COFFEE10 saves you 10%!)
How gorgeous is this China Glaze shade? It was original released as part of the Glam Finale 2017 Holiday collection. it’s so stunning, & it’s the first time I’ve ever worn it. I can definitely see myself wearing this shade a lot in the new few months — can you imagine it paired in a gradient with some silver holo glitters! Ahhhh, it’ll be so pretty for the holidays.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Because we still have so many Fall & Halloween looks to come!
Down below: a shot with my favourite Fall plaid dress & the inspiration behind this nail art look. They go so perfectly together!
