I've been inspired by the recent weather change in just about every way in regards to my appearance - clothes (cue the cardigans & scarves :), makeup, and today - nails! I love bright, colorful nail polish just as much as the next girl, but i embrace warmer, darker colors just as much. It was quite enjoyable removing my neon pink polish and giving myself a nice fall-inspired mani!
Sorry for the mess ;)
After taking a brief scope through my polish collection, i landed on OPI's "It's a Doozi, Says Suzi", which i got in a sale at Boston Store last year, i believe :)
"It's a Doozi, Says Suzi" is a gorgeous vampy red, with subtle gold reflex in it. In most lighting, it looks like a super deep red, almost a bit brown. In sunlight, the gold really comes through & sparkles with all it's might :). Suzi is absolutely fab! I had to apply three coats, but it went on very smooth.
As a base coat i used Maybelline's Express Finish 50-Second Nail Color Base & Top Coat. Three layers of OPI's pretty polish later, i applied Revlon's Extra Life No Chip Top Coat, which i am absolutely in love with! Review for it here.
This is probably the best mani i gave myself in a while, hehe. Look out for some more nail posts ladies!
What's your favorite color to paint your nails for fall? :)
I wanted to put a little spot in this post in remembrance of the horrific events on September 11, 2001. Thoughts and love to all the families and friends who lost the ones the love ♥.
