Hi all! It’s that time again for us to share with you our favorite fall nail colors. Hope you enjoy 🙂

Cat’s Favorite Fall 2013 Nail Polish:

Polish04

Essie – Smokin’ Hot (pictured darker than actual color). According to the Essie website this is, “a stone-cold fox gray that burns hotter than any flame.”  I absolutely fell in love with the color when I saw it at my local Target.

Polish03

Wet n Wild – Through the Grapevine. A beautiful fuchsia almost like a dark red wine color with a hint of pink. I love the Megalast line of nail polish, they last a long time, they are inexpensive and the colors are awesome. View more of my collection here.

Polish01

China Glaze – Dress Me Up. Is a brownish mauve color, very neutral and great for fall.

Polish02

NYC (New York Color) – Fashion Safari. Is a beautiful milky tan color. Once again, a beautiful neutral color great for fall and perfect for the office.

Polish05

Julep – Florence. Is a creamy milky ivory, once again, perfect for the office. This is part of the “Classic with a Twist” Julep collection. To learn more about Julep and to become a Julep Maven click here.

Cristy’s Favorite Fall 2013 Nail Polishes:

O.P.I. – Malaga Wine. What can I say, I’m a fan of the reds, so it’s super fitting that one of my favorite fall colors is a deep wine red.

O.P.I. – Skip the Gift Wrap – Green is not typically a color I gravitate to, but this polish is so rich and deep that I’m a bit addicted to it.

O.P.I. – A-taupe the Space Needle – Ahhh the good ol’ brown fall color. Always a favorite of mine. This might look very similar to one of my favorites from last year, but this one is much deeper and reminds me of cocoa milk :).

O.P.I. – Suzi Takes the Wheel. Last but not least and probably my favorite for the season. A gray with a slight brown/rustic undertone.

 

Here’s the first in our 2013 4th of July Nails Series.

Products I used:

(Red) China Glaze “Cranberry Splash”

(White) Orly “White Tips”

(Blue) Julep “Ally”

Start by painting your nails with a white base on your four fingers, and blue on the thumb.

Then I added tiny “stars” on my thumb. Be sure the polish is still wet to secure the stars and top it off with a clear coat. Remember you can always pain on little stars or simply use a silver glitter polish to resemble stars.

Next, use painter tape and cut little strips. Add those strips to your four fingers with the white base.

After, add red polish on top of your four nails. Let the polish dry for a few seconds and peel off.

Remember to add a top coat to add shine and here you have the final look!

The design is quick and easy to re-create. Go ahead, rock that flag!

Thanks for your visit, remember to come back tomorrow for a new look.

A few days back I saw a featured mani on @Julepmaven (Julep, a monthly nail polish and other beauty products subscription) on Instagram and I loved it so much I had to recreate the look. The original design was created by @libedon (aka The Polished Fox).

The design is pretty simple and easy to recreate, but I specially love the color combination. The polishes I used are: “Natural” by Love & Beauty (Forever 21 nail polish line), and “Man Hunt” by China Glaze.

What do you think, you like?

Also. feel free to follow me on Intagram @Kitty5289.

Thanks for visiting, CAT.

 

I recently purchased several nail polish from Sally’s Beauty Store that were on clearance. Here is one of my favorites – Foie Gras by China Glaze from their Hunger Games collection.

Foie Gras is a milky, dark chocolate, brown which is a fantastic color for fall and I am sure I will be wearing it quite often.

What colors do you like for the fall?

Welcome back to Tipsy Tuesday! As you may know, last week Cristy shared her Fall Nail Colors, this week I will be sharing mine. Added bonus, if you are anything like us it will help feed your nail polish addiction.

I am a little sad to say “good bye” to all my bright pinks, corals, and minty greens, however I am very excited to rock dark polishes. I am a huge fan of dark polishes!

Below are some of the fall colors I am looking forward to rocking.

Tough Art To Follow:  a deep, dark, matte green. This reminds me of seaweed.

Purr-Fect Plum: a deep, matte plum.  I really love this color and I think it is great for a date night out.

Naughty: a purpley, grayish, and slightly pearlescent. Once again, I love this color and I will definitely be wearing throughout the fall.

Nirvana: a grayish milky chocolate. Cristy and I both loved this color!

Let us know what fall colors are your favorites or which you plan to wear often, use the hash tag #TipsyTuesdayCtoC.

Till next time 🙂
