I sure hope y’all had a fantastic weekend! I didn’t do too much, which is exactly what I had planned especially after such a busy week.
On last Monday, I shared with you my first Just Another MANICure Monday blog hop post and I had so much fun that I decided to do it again this week. I absolutely loved all the mani submissions for last week; they gave me so much inspiration that I kept brainstorming ideas for my nails even though I had a million other things I needed to be doing…smh!
This time around I used the KISS Nail Dress in Shrug. and paired it with one of my favorite polishes by Sonia Kashuk…I like to call this mani KISS’n Sonia. I was inspired by one of the co-host, Effie Lynn of LA Lynn’s, she posted a mani using the KISS Nail Dress a few week ago. This week MiMi of Lipgloss & Binky is hosting Just Another MANICure Monday on her blog, be sure to check it out!

What are you rocking on your nails this week?
It has been busy, busy, busy around here and I finally had a chance to read through some of my favorite magazines. And let me tell you, I’m swooning over all the hot new fashion trends for this fall. I can’t wait to rock some of my fav fall gear but the weather here is still on the warm side. So I guess I will have to wait a few more weeks before I’m able to bust out my blazer. *sigh*
But while I’m waiting I guess I’ll settle for the next best thing…nail polish. While checking out the September issue of Essence I came across the “Nail NOW!” insert (pictured below). It highlighted some the latest nail trends, polishes colors and designs ideas for the fall. And yes, I was inspired. I immediately searched through my nail polish collection (yes, collection…it’s serious) and pulled out some of my favs. Check it out…
Essence Magazine September 2012
I rock these shades all year round. Simple and chic.
Sand Tropez by Essie…recently became my fav.
Chocoholic by Sonia Kashuk
Shades of Grey…lol
Metallics are a must.
My fav red hues. (Please excuse the HUGE 50% off sticker…lol)
As you can see I love nail polish! And its a perfect way to get you in the mood for fall even when the weather is still a little warm. I’m still on the hunt for a few more neutral shades and the perfect “ox-blood” color. And I have my eye on a few designs I want to try out…if they work out I will definitely be sharing them with y’all!
What’s your fav nail polish for this fall?
