Flakies, Gradients, & Holo

Have you ever started doing your nails and you can't stop just adding more and more until you realize that you may have gone overboard? Yeah, I tend to do that. A lot. You know what, though? Sometimes more is more. Right?

Musical Pond Mani

I was playing around with my OPI ColorPaints and decided to do a pond manicure. I wanted to experiment a little, though, and see how well it would work with stamped images. It turns out that it works quite well.

Holographic Fall Nails

Being that fall is my favorite season of them all, I'm so sad that we're only a month away from the first day of winter. Granted, it starts feeling like winter much earlier than mid December here, but in my heart, it's still autumn and I'm savoring it. We have a beautiful red maple tree in our yard and the leaves are sprinkled all over the place and it's so pretty.

One of my favorite things lately has been my drive home from work. It's been so windy and when the wind catches all of the fallen leaves, they swirl across the roads and around the cars. It feels like the scene in Pocahontas when she stands in the breeze with the leaves and her hair swirling around. 

I seriously love autumn. I wanted to do a manicure that screamed fall but still had some simplicity to it. So, I grabbed two holo polishes. You know, because it can't be TOO simple. ;)

Teal & Gold Polka Dots

I have a strange love for office supplies. I always have. Post Its have a special place in my heart. I adore pens and markers. Binders, folders, you name it! 

Sometimes my adoration for patterns and colors collides with my love of stationery. I got a clipboard to use for work and it's SO PRETTY. It's teal with gold polka dots and a pink elastic strap. It's one of my favorite things. Today, while using it, I thought to myself, "This would be cute on my nails."

Fall Waterfall

The weather here in Michigan has been amazing lately. It's been cool (most days, anyway), a little rainy here and there, and the leaves are all the most beautiful shades of gold, red, and orange. Fall is, by far, my favorite season! It has really put me in the mood for some pretty fall nail art.

Here's a last minute Halloween blobbicure design in some festive colors.

The base is Wet n Wild Black Creme. The orange is Julep Kirti. The purple (I swear it isn't blue) is L'Oreal Wild and Free.
