Finger Paints - Twisted

I was so excited about this line of flake polishes that came out around Christmas time last year and I was most excited about Twisted - so I went out and bought it right when it came out. Despite my excitement, it has sat in my untried polishes stash for nearly a year. Until now, that is. 

For the base I used two coats of Orly - Le Chateau which is a very deep green jelly polish from Orly's 2011 Holiday Soiree collection. It looks black, but in the sun it reveals a green undertone. 

Twisted is an awesome flake polish with green, orange, and blue flakes. It looks so cool over a dark colored base, and is perfect for a Halloween mani! I used just one coat and I got great coverage, and the formula was very easy to work with. I topped this look off with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat and called it a day!

What Halloween-y polish are you wearing?

Icing - Glimmer

I'm BACK!! I've missed blogging - but, life was rather hectic and amazing for the last couple weeks and I wasn't able to blog to my heart's desire. Almost two weeks ago, this girl got hitched! We had a perfect ceremony with our family and friends, followed by an evening of good food, good company, and lots of dancing! Here's a little taste for you...

After a fantastic honeymoon in Barbados, we are back to the real world, and I painted my nails right away! (I was wearing one of the OPI DS polishes on the wedding day/honeymoon for anyone who's curious)

But today, I painted over my acrylics with this beauty...

This is Icing - Glimmer. I bought this over a year ago, and have been waiting for the fall season to wear it. It features a beautiful light gold pearly base with gold glitter mixed in. It's a bit rough, but that may be from the acrylics and not the polish. 

Glimmer is perfect for the changing season, and a fun spin on a neutral polish. You could definitely wear this in a professional setting without feeling too "loud". Sparkly neutrals like these are my favorite, and I'm so happy the fall season is here so I can break them out once again!

What autumnal polish are you wearing today?
