Happy Mani Monday! I hope you all had a fun weekend. I saw Gone Girl, twice, because it was that good. The movie really did the book justice and the casting was pretty spot on. I especially loved Carrie Coon as Nick’s twin, Go. If you are a fan of the book, see it! And if you didn’t read it, what are you waiting for? Though, I took the boyfriend, who hasn’t read it, and he thoroughly enjoyed the film.
Let’s kick off the week with a patterned Dotticure using the Nailbox Pre-Fall TrendBox, curated by my pal Sarah from Chalkboard Nails. I created this look as part of my work with Nailbox but it was so fun that I just had to share it here. I wore it all weekend and got so many compliments.
Mark your calendars because the premiere of Nail’d It is less than a week away. The nail art competition pits 18 up-and-coming nail artists against each other for a $100,000 prize. If you love nails, you have to tune in.

Beauty, From Head To Toe and Wet Paint. Bonus… judges Jan Arnold, Tom Bachik and Elaine Watson will be joining in as well.

True to form, Zoya is giving us two new collections for fall, one set of cremes, one set of shimmers. Once October hits, I am ready for my nails to sparkle and, ever since the Fall 2007 Downtown collection, I’ve always looked to Zoya to get my fix.

First, thank you to everyone who commented, emailed, tweeted in response to the post about my baby Loki. I can’t tell you how much it means to me. I’m still reading through everything, it’s hard to do all at once, and responding but the support is amazing.
That being said, it’s #ManiMonday and when I shared the Essie Fall 2014 collection, I mentioned how I thought Take It Outside would make a great nail art base and that I wanted to pair it with Style Cartel and Fall In Line. So today, I pulled out the straight Nail Vinyls I purchased, but haven’t used yet, and The Perfect Cover Up for a fall striped look.
