Avoiding Fall While Embracing the Colors...

So I admit it, I am nowhere near ready for Fall to get here, but I am starting to get into the Fall colors. It could be due to all the pretty Fall collections that I have started to swatch. Stay tuned for lots and lots of swatches to come. Today though, I would like to show you a manicure that really hits the spot for my current color mood...

The manicure started out with Nicole by OPI Fairy Fairy Quite Contrary, a bright carrot orange cream. To add some sparkle, I topped it off with Shimmer Carmen. Stamping was done using Maybelline Bold Gold and Cheeky stamping plate CH7...

A contrasting rhinestone to finish off the look...

Shimmer Carmen is a mix of orange, gold and holographic glitter of various shapes and sizes in a clear base. I love the way it compliments the orange although next time I will need to try it over something more contrasting to show the glitter better. As usual, the holographic glitter is being camera shy, but it truly sparkles in real life. I used one generous coat of Carmen of my orange bast. The formula is very nice and there is a good amount of glitter and distribution with each brush stroke. Swatches are with a top coat...

  1. I'm not ready fall (or fall collections of nail polish) but this mani is a very nice transition.

  2. Very cute!!! it kind of reminds me of Rose Gold which is sooooo popular right now!

  3. Que esmalte mas bonito y que manicura mas elegante y perfecta. Me encanta lo sutil que queda el estampado con ese color tan parecido al color de base. Felicidades.
