Happy First day of Jewel Toned Fall!!

Hey all - I'm a post junkie this week ;) I did a special manicure in celebration of Fall - my favorite time of year! Something about the air, turning leaves, and gearing up for holiday baking just makes me so happy. No post summer blues for this nail-lovin'gal:
What you are looking at is a combination of the new and the old. Fall feels this way to me. Old memories and traditions and opportunities to create new ones. It's blissful really. Especially when you become a mommy because you get the see the magic happen for your sweet babies. My 2 year-old found an acorn yesterday and you should have seen him light up!

The green is Rags to Riches by Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro (in case you missed it I FREAKIN' LOVE THIS BRAND!) and the nude is Essence Irreplaceable. Both are gorgeous on their own, but combined with Fall goodness they are breath-taking. It's been a long time since I've had a manicure I didn't want to take off. Want to see the glitter goodness?
The designs come from two of the first Bundle Monster set. For some reason so beyond me I still don't have the new set :( BUT that's ok because, as you can see, the first set has the makings for a lovely manicure. Plate BM 04 and BM 05. I stamped with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Green With Envy for the grass tuft on the tips and Sinful Colors Nirvana for the grass tuft on the nude nail base. I used Zoya Jancyn and SC Nirvana for the Fall leaves - I brushed 2/3 of the image with Jancyn and the remainder with Nirvana and scraped slightly diagonally and down. The leaf on the accent finger is Sinful Colors Sugar Sugar. In closing HAPPY FALL!!!


  1. I love it! I have been too wrapped up in thinking up Halloween posts to do a fall one yet! :)

  2. Oh, that is breathtaking. So sophisticated.

  3. Thanks everyone for the great comments - had a super hard time taking it off but I obtained the On The Prowl collection sooooo......;)
