Indie Inlinkz: Favorite Fall Color (Plus Nail Art)

Hello and happy first day of fall! To celebrate the first day of the best season of the year several of us decided to get together and show off our favorite fall colors. The problem is I don't have just one favorite fall color! LOL! I love rich browns, vampy reds,  deep purples and rusty oranges and wear all of them year long, but especially in autumn!

I received the fall CbLs that I ordered on Monday (which I had just ordered exactly one week before on pre-order, that's super fast shipping!) and immediately put on Mocha Grande and have not wanted to take it off. It is so beautiful! So, I decided I would post it today, along with some autumn nail art.

The Digit-al Dozen Does Re-Creations: Day 5 - Chipotle

Happy Friday, everyone! My Friday was more like a Monday and I am so happy that it's finally over. It probably didn't help that I got very little sleep last night due to working on today's mani. I knew this mani would be so hard for me to do but I knew I really wanted to do it! For the last day of Digit-al Dozen Re-Creation Week I chose to recreate a mani by the über talented Lindsey from Wondrously Polished that celebrates our mutual love for Chipotle!

The Digit-al Dozen Does Re-Creations: Day 1 - Floral Lace Half Moons

Today starts another Digit-al Dozen Week and I'm super excited about this one! This month is the 3rd anniversary of the Digit-al Dozen, so to celebrate we are re-creating Digit-al Dozen manis from the past. It's been so overwhelming to try to decide on only 5 manis to do with so much talent and so many gorgeous nail art looks to choose from! Today I decided to re-create a manicure that I have wanted to try since I first saw it posted. This one is Floral Lace Half Moons from Jacki at Adventures in Acetone.

Gradient Honeycomb

Hello and happy weekend! Happy long weekend to most of my US readers. I have a nail art post for you tonight! A nail art post and it isn't even Digit-al Dozen week. LOL! I've been so busy lately that I haven't had much time for blogging, which has put me behind. Because of that I've spent every spare moment trying to swatch and get caught up. But this has not left anytime for nail art and I have not been enjoying my nails like I normally do. So last night I decided I was going to do something fun. I spent over 4 hours trying to pull off a successful water marble. I wasn't happy with the results, but I think I have figured out what I was doing wrong and plan on trying again soon. Even though my attempts weren't successful, I did have a lot of fun trying. And then I decided I was going to put on something I could wear as a full mani and just have fun looking at.

*Both brands featured in this post are having Labor Day sales so make sure you check out their social media accounts!*

I recently received the Darling Diva Polish Hug My Face Collection (AKA the Alien Collection) to review and they are so stunning. I couldn't wait to play with them! I will have full swatches soon, but for now, here's a little sneak peek.
