Early Autumn Nail Color | #MonthlyMani

September 20, 2016

Summer is almost over, which means it’s time to start the transition in our wardrobes and accessories.  Pull out the cardigans and boots and put away those tank tops and sandals.  It’s also time for color palettes to shift towards jewel tones, neutrals and richer, darker hues.  I’ve decided my color of the season this year is going to be purple, smoky, sweet, pale or deep, I’ll take it!  Here’s my early autumn nail color – what do you think??

I kept the design for this manicure simple; I wanted something classic and muted.  I used the deep purple “Joanne” polish by Julep for the main color and “I Lilac You” by Sally Hansen as an accent.  I also added a small black triangle nail sticker to each accent nail for a bit more interest.

    I love your nails! The triangle is totally autumnal in the tones you picked! …it sort of reminds me of Harry Potter, which is a huge compliment! :)!

      Thank you, Justine!! I do love the simplistic triangle, but it did feel a little too hip for me (I am pretty sure I’m not cool enough haha)! I am definitely in love with my smoky purple and my fave lilac, though!! ;)
