Fall is Coming!

Hi all! Hope you're doing well. I just started school again for the fall and it is a pain! Why is math only offered at 8:30am? Boo =( I hope if you're in school you had the chance to plan your schedule better! But I compensate with pretty polished nails to look at during class ;)

I recently received this colour in my "Fall Luxebox" and I like it so much! I don't think there is a China Glaze polish that isn't essentially perfection. (other than their neons but who can actually make good neons)

This colour is called Purr-fect Plum and it is a dark berry-plum cream colour that is perfect for fall and winter =) I have been attempting to get a bit into nail art, even though I'm a major fail, so I put some dots running down the sides. Not all the same size but I'm trying I swear! I also seem to have a thing with putting dots down my nail as some of my blog posts show. Strange. This photo has no bottle shot because I was snapping random photos and I thought this photo looked cozy against my sweater... =P Anywho, hope you're doing swell and enjoy the below photo!

The Hungry Asian Itsy Bitsy

LOVE. I am totally head over heels for this manicure. Granted, I don't usually wear manicures that I don't like because I will just take them off before doing clean up and taking photos etc. =) I recently bought myself some more polishes from The Hungry Asian. I love her polishes so much! First off, the glitters are so fun and colourful and the mini bottles are shaped like hearts. How cute! I bought a full size bottle of Itsy Bitsy though because I knew I would adore it.

I started off with two coats of Zoya's Pippa. This is a polish that needs three coats to be fully opaque and not have VNL but I knew I was going to be layering Itsy Bitsy over it so I wasn't too worried. Love this colour! It is so happy =)


Then we have the star of the show, Itsy Bitsy! What an awesome polish. Sheer yellow base, red glitter. Ladies and gents, we have a winner. This was super easy to apply and the glitter spread out nicely on the nail. I took this photo while holding a lemon because I was making tea and I had a moment of "OMG MY NAILS MATCH THIS LEMON!" So, yanno.


Lastly, we mattified this beauty. I don't usually mattify my manicures but I had just bought a new NYC matte top coat and for some reason just needed to see this matte from the second I received it. PS this is an awesome matte top coat, especially for a buck fifty. I have almost forgotten about my Nails Inc matte top coat that is sitting in my Melmer ;) Instagram photo, because I really liked it okay!? <3


That is all for now! I'm hoping to keep up a schedule of posting more regularly because I'm starting to get into the swing of things. Byyyyee loves and check out The Hungry Asian's etsy shop!

Up Colors Lilas Chrome

Let's not talk about my failed challenge in August. I SUCK OKAY?

Onto prettier things now. We all know my love of holos, even the subtle ones. And this is a gorgeous and subtle holo. I present to you Up Colors 'Lilas Chrome.' Is there an English name for this? I'm unsure. But this is the purpley-pink Up holo and it is so pretty. Very subtle holo but the colour itself is so pretty and just looked amazeballs on my nails. You can barely see any holo in this pic but I tried I promise! It is minimal but in the right light you see it. This is a super old pic, minimum three months? Anyway, hope you enjoy!

You can buy this at llarowe and I think it is time for me to buy them all... ;)
