Happy Monday. Hope your week is starting off great.
Today marks the first full day of fall here in Iowa. I love fall it’s my favorite season. I get to decorate for all my favorite holidays, cozy up on the couch on cool nights and burn candles. Smell the crisp fall air filled with the smell of leaves and camp fires.
I just had to play with fall colors tonight.
I decided on a dark teal Finger Paints polish called Fall-ing for you, teal is my favorite color plus it’s really popular this year. This color is really pretty but it has a frosty finish. Sometimes I don’t mind frost polishes but this one is a bit streaky. Rather than getting all OCD about it I just decided to add a matte top coat. The matte top coat gives it a lovely jewel tone and evens out the frosty streaks.
I tried a Salon Perfect matte top coat that I picked up from Wal-mart this time. I must say not bad at all. I see little to no difference in formula from Essie matte, well except price.
To add more of a fall feel I decided to stamp on some fall leaves. Using Bundle Monster Holiday plate H11 I stamped on the far left leaf image using my SquareHue Scorched Summer polish. This is a burnt orange Creme polish. It stamped very easily.
I just am loving the teal and burnt orange combo.
I did add a Finger Paints bar glitter polish to my pinky finger Gourd or Bad?. This bar glitter has all kinds of fall colored bars. Makes for a nice accent nail.
Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤
