Way-Cool Mani Wednesday: Autumn Wishes

Fall does not exist in Florida. You don't know how bad I wish it did. It would be nice to have temperatures consistently under 80 before December. That's not going to happen though. Floridians, or shall I say myself, choose live in delusion about fall weather by doing a few things. 

1. Buy fall scented items (i.e. candles, room fresheners, and fragrances) I currently have cranberry scented room fresheners. 
2. Buy pumpkin food items (i.e. Pumpkin Spiced Lattes or pumpkin bread).
3. Paint nails fall colors.

This all helps create the illusion that it is cool outside. The trick is you don't step outside because once you do you're rudely awakened by hot, humid, and very sticky reality.

In honor of my longing for autumn I have created this mani.


Polishes Used:
Ulta Lav-ish and China Glaze Goldie but Goodie

Manicure Description: I painted my thumb, index, and pinky with Ulta Lav-ish. My middle finger was painted with Ulta Lav-ish, and topped using the Saran Wrap technique using China Glaze Goldie by Goodie. My ring finger was painted with China Glaze Goldie but Goodie. 

To be honest, I don't love this. I'm not sure if it's because it's so hot out that it's clouding my thoughts or what. I really like these colors together, but perhaps just not on me! I think I should of used a darker purple color. 

Happy Wednesday!

  1. I do really like this ! I think the combination is great. Is the gold sparkle part of the lav-ish? because if so I LOVE that!
    Also as a fellow floridian I must say the first part of this post is entirely, pain stakingly true.!

  3. I like it! I really like the gold (or bronze?) shimmer in Ulta Lav-ish. Might have to hunt that one down!

  7. I like it the more I look at it, I will blame the heat for not liking it at first :P! Thank you! I just lit one of my pumpkin candles and it's 91 outside right now -sigh-.

  9. Beautiful colors!
    And very nice for fall :)
    Here, many people wish the short German summer was much, much longer (and sometimes we have no summer at all but a long cold and rainy fall from May to November) - I guess you always want to have what you can't have :D
    But I can guess how you feel - this year we had no spring, but a really long winter and suddenly it was summer. I really missed something ...

  21. Wow, Lav-ish is really cool! Looks like something Zoya would make. I think ULTA nail polish is generally pretty underrated.
