I’m really digging olive-hued nails for fall.

Last night, I slapped on a couple coats of Essie’s Sew Psyched – a “soft cashmere sage pewter-grey” – while I watched The Big Bang Theory reruns in bed. I sealed it with a swipe of Good to Go quick-drying topcoat, and dozed off for a luxuriously interrupted 8 hours.

I woke up this morning to a perfect mani; not a smudge, bubble, or sheet mark. Have you tried Essie’s Good to Go yet? Doooo it.

manicure monday: my fall favorites

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8

I love funky nail art as much as the next girl, but I usually don’t have the time or patience to do it myself. These days I’m all about an easy at-home manicure, and with fall officially upon us I’m on the hunt for new colors and textures to add to my nail kit. It’s time to trade in the hot pinks and corals of summer, and transition to inky blacks, jewel tones, neutral mattes, and richer nudes.

What’s your favorite polish this time of year?

manic{ure} monday: 9 cute summer mani ideas to start your week

I could spend hours browsing through nail art on Pinterest. In fact, this afternoon, I did. {Don’t tell my boss.} This summer, I’m loving bright nails with clean designs; like a natural base with a bold tip, geometric pastels, nudes paired with neon, and simple all-white manis.

My kit is stocked, and my nails are in desperate need of some TLC. Now the only question is, which one should I try first?
