You may or may not have noticed that I went on hiatus for the summer. Sorry about the lack of notice – it wasn’t something I had planned on, but between my daughter being home for summer break and adopting a new puppy to house train, play with and cuddle, I decided to put my nails on the back burner.
Now, my daughter is back in school and my puppy is house-trained – though we still spend time cuddling! This is my Frankie-boy – you can see why he won out over nails 🙂
During my break I polished my nails once a week and I concentrated on using neutrals, taking the opportunity to let some of my staining grow out. In another two months, my nails would be completely stain-free, but with fall on the way and my love-affair with doing Halloween manis, I have a feeling they’ll be stained again in no time – I really need to do a few negative space manis while I still can! 🙂
Speaking of fall – that was totally my inspiration for today’s nails. It’s still hot here in Texas, so I’m dreaming of cooler weather and I couldn’t resist using these colors together again!
I painted my accent nail with two coats of OPI – Love.Angel.Music.Baby and the others with Zoya – Cinnamon. I used a quatrefoil nail vinyl from vibrantvinyls.com and painted on some of the Vibrant Vinyls liquid latex around the vinyl to help keep my skin clear – I then painted on a coat of Wet n’ Wild – Burgundy Frost. I stamped the other nails with Love.Angel.Music.Baby using plate BC-18. All nails got a coat of Seche Vite to top them off!
I cannot tell you how good it felt to have something other than a plain color on my nails again and I always love these polishes together.
