Nail Polish Inspiration: Dark Green + Glitter

It’s feeling like fall! For this mani, I wanted to go for a deeper green to pay homage to the color of the year (Emerald), while still keeping it fun and autumn appropriate. Here’s what I came up with that’s subtle enough to wear to work, yet fun enough to feel like you dressed up for a night out:

Orly Sparkling Garbage + essie Stylenomics

Taken indoors under artificial lighting, the glint of Sparkling Garbage really brings out the green undertones of Stylenomics (even though it’s difficult to see in this picture). I applied two coats of Stylesnomics on all nails, two coats of Sparkling Garbage on my accent nails, and finally one top coat.

I love this color combination and, with any luck and hopefully very few dishes to wash, am looking forward to rocking it for awhile. Look at some of the other great designs people have come up with to compliment the unique shade of Sparkling Garbage below:

Inspired by my mani or post? Send me a picture! What do you think about Sparkling Garbage? Do you think it’s subtle enough to be wearable in the workplace, or is it more of a weekend look? Let me know in the comments below!


Monday Must-Haves: Simple + Special

Welcome back to Monday Must-Haves! This week it’s all about simple style with a touch of something special — these are some of my favorite items I’m stumbled across in a long time!Monday Must-Haves
How perfect is that taupe skirt? It so needs to be in my closet, right now. Also, after researching examples of essie’s Shine of the Times used on different nail polishes, I was hooked. This nail polish is no longer being made, and people still rave about it! I bought one offline for a few extra bucks and oh my goodness it just makes every nail polish look better! It adds multi-dimensional shine that compliments so well. Seriously, just look at this Google search. Cannot recommend this polish enough, guys!
