Hello, friends, it’s my favorite time of the month again, #MonthlyMani time! Since the autumnal equinox is next week (even though it’s hotter than blazes here in Southern California, seriously 95 degrees at 9 pm?!), we decided to go with Autumnal Hues, or Fall Colors, as the theme for the fast-approaching season!
I knew right away that for this theme, I wanted to incorporate some beautiful gold glitter! Nothing reminds me of fall more than the changing of the foliage and all of the fun, crunchy gold leaves that cover the sidewalks. And what goes better with chilly fall breezes and red and gold leaves? A warm, tasty cup of tea, of course!
Why, yes, that is a Downton Abbey mug! ;)
For this manicure, I chose a dusky purple/brown/gray taupe color (yes, that’s a lot of colors, but it’s a complicated polish, okay?) that has a hint of gold shimmer to it. I decided to accent this color and pick up on that gold shimmer with a thick gold glitter polish for the tips and my ring fingers.
The polishes: “Night Life” by Rimmel London (400; it’s an older color) // gold glitter by Forever 21 (came in a set) // Base & Top Coat by Rimmel London (100)
