Fall Nails

Hey, all!

I’m going to close out what turned into a fall mini-series, with what got me interested in beauty in the first place: nail polish! I love how great I feel when I have freshly-painted nails. It can make something a mundane as holding a pen feel more exciting. I love digging out my fall colors because it gets me so inspired and excited for fall weather and outfits!

Hopefully this will give you a little inspiration, too 🙂

Fall Colors with a Cream Finish

Cooler weather doesn’t mean you have to suck the color out of everything! Fall is the most colorful time of year, and you can draw from those colors to bring some life to your nails.

Colors shown:

Revlon Top Speed in Vintage – a beautiful bright berry

Essie in Cocktail Bling – a light grey, perfect as a base for nail art or alone

Essie in Very Structured – a rust-brown

Essie in Going Incognito – a deep jungle green

SpaRitual in Clay Creme – a great pumpkin orange

Awesome Metallics

Metallics are trending right now, but if a foiled eyeshadow seems too risky or not work appropriate for you, nail polish could be a great way to try it out.
