Finger Paints - Fall of Surprises

Happy autumn equinox!  Fall is my favorite season, the weather cools, the haze and humidity leave us, the leaves change colors, we all have to get out of our flip flops and put our clothes back on... thank goodness!

Here is a spicy little manicure for fall... Finger Paints, Fall of Surprises over OPI, Every Month is Oktoberfest (EMIO).  Fall of Surprises is densely packed with a mix of copper hex glitters in a clear base, so this is just one coat.








In person the glitters contrast against EMIO more so than in these photos... I just couldn't reduce the glare without making the pictures too dark.  So I included these three at slightly different angles.

This week I'll be away at the beach, where I may or may not post anything.  I'm going to take my laptop with me so we will see how it goes.

I know I mentioned putting away our flip flops... I will be wearing mine for one more week, but I wasn't able to get anytime off from work this spring or summer.  Gotta squeeze a beach vacation in somewhere once a year right?  I am so, so grateful my boss let me go this week, she controls my schedule...

Have a great week and I'll see you guys later!

  5. Oh my gaaaaawd, I love this. This combination is perfection. *sigh* Absolutely amazing. Beautiful copper + dark vampy shimmery purple = LOVE. I swear, I'm not usually this gushy, but I really adore this. And I'm beginning to suspect that your swatches could convince me I need just about any polish that graces your fingertips! ;)
