Rouge Louboutin and Chanel Lame Rouge Noir

Who else was hating life this morning? After a nice long holiday break, I didn’t want to get up AT ALL this morning. I totally slept through my alarm. My body just wasn’t having it. I had such a lovely time at home with the boyfriend, who also took the last two weeks off. We spent Christmas with my parents, baked cookies, hosted a NYE party, did some work around the house, and binge-watched Mozart in the Jungle, Man in the High Castle, Red Oaks, Master of None, and caught up on AHS: Hotel (it’s FINALLY getting good).

My nails were pretty bare the last week since we cleaned and de-cluttered the house (I’m reading the KonMari method book) and ended up breaking/chipping a few nails. I didn’t even have polish on for NYE! If I did, it would have been today’s manicure, one of my Christmas gifts from the boyfriend and a treat to myself. He remembered me saying how I could never justify the INSANE price of Rouge Louboutin, even though I wanted it as a collectible, so I was happily surprised when it showed up under the tree.

Essie Fall 2015 - Leggy Legend

essie Fall 2015 – Leggy Legend

Happy Fri-yay everyone! I can’t tell you how happy I am to be writing this post on a new laptop. Mine old one deteriorated to the point that I couldn’t edit photos or watch a video without it freezing. Scary and frustrating. I’m ecstatic with my new Lenovo and to have a free moment from classes (so much Calc homework) to be sharing the essie Fall 2015 collection with you today. I shared a nail art look from the collection with you, but now it’s time for the full shebang. These six new shades come in an atypical essie formula. Check it out!

Zoya Fall 2015 – Flair

As I shared during last night’s #NailGlossip chat (next one is 8/30), Fall is my favorite time of year for nail color. I love the saturated jewel tones and sparkle that tend to accompany the season. So, when the Zoya.comZoya Fall 2015 collections landed on my doorstep, I had to play with Flair first.

Can I just say how much I love that Zoya releases one creme collection and one shimmer/sparkle collection for the major seasons? Some of my all-time favorite colors have come from Zoya fall palettes and this year is shaping up to follow that pattern. There are a couple colors here that I know I’ll wear over and over this season.

FingerPaints Once in a Wild Collection Swatches & Review

FingerPaints Once in a Wild – Fall 2015

I may not be ready for fall weather, I mean we’ve barely had a summer in Cleveland, but I AM ready for fall sparkle on my nails. The FingerPaints Once in a Wild collection blends three existing crystallized shades with three new micro-glitters. It’s apropos that I’m posting this on a Thursday because the glitters feel like a throwback, in a good way. They’re reminiscent of the top-coat-eating fine glitters that made me fall in love with sparkle polish years ago.
