Jessica #734 Cinnamon Kiss

There are only 4 letters I can use to describe this polish....L O V E. Once I saw photos of this collection on Scrangie's Blog and I knew I had to find someplace to order it....eBay to the rescue! LOL. Cinnamon Kiss is from the Spicy Dream Fall 2012 Collection. There are some other great colors mixed in there too, I also have Gingersnap and Pumpkin Delight coming to me. I adore fall collections, they always have my favorite colors.
Thanks for looking!

Gosh # 540 Ocean

I can't think of all that much to say about Ocean, for some reason this color is just meh to me. It's a prefect aqua blue, and would probably make a great base for some ocean themed nail art, but I just honestly cant' see myself wearing this solo. At least I got it cheap! LOL.

Nabi Magnetic: # 35 Teal II

Nabi has recently come out with some new magnetic colors, with different designs. This is Teal II, which has a wave design. What I like about this color is how the design is an aqua blue, but the color in between is a teal-y green glitter. Very pretty and so different than any other magnetic color I have in my collection (which is quite a few now).

Here's a good shot of the green glitter part:

I got my Nabi's from eBay, I have not seen these in stores like the previous ones.

Nabi: #60 New Gold Glitter

My 1st ever concert was in 1990 and I saw Faster Pussycat and Motley Crue on the Dr. Feelgood tour, and tonight I have tickets to see Motley Crue open for Kiss. I haven't seen them since my 1st show, so I'm pretty excited. This means I need some bling for the nails, so I decided to wear Nabi #60, New Gold Glitter.

NGG is a mixture of gold irregular shaped glitter, skinny holo bar glitter and bits of tiny red hexes. Unfortunately, I had the bright idea to sear this over Orly Buried Alive and the Nabi glitter just gets swallowed up in it.

Here's a closeup:

and I thought it best to show off the Nabi solo as well. I'm not sure what color would be the best base for it, but definitely something brighter and more subtle than Buried Alive:

Color Club Feelin' Groovy is a perfect Halloween green!

I was swatching Color Club's Feelin' Groovy the other day and after seeing it on the nail, I thought it was a perfect shade of bright Halloween green! I think it'd be a great color for a Frankenstein themed mani....I'll have to think on that one for a bit and see if I can come up with something fun.

In the meantime, check it out:

You could just add some simple stitches to it (of course you'd probably do a better job that I did! LOL):

or some orange glitter:

Orly: Buried Alive

This color was from the Dark Shadows collection, and I was lucky enough to snag one when Sally's had their 50% off clearance sale. I love the name, it's so Halloween, and of course totally fits into my present Halloween / Fall mindset lately 8-) Buried Alive is a brown with hmm, I'd say gold glass flecks. It's reminds me a bit of Loreal Owls Night (I think that's the name), but it doesn't have that green cast to it like the Loreal one does.

Soo pretty!

Thanks for looking!

OPI: Every Month is Oktoberfest

I thought since I just showed you one color from the Germany collection, I'd throw Every Month is Oktoberfest at you next. This one reminds me a bit of Clarins 230, with the shimmer and purple. They are nowhere near dupes, and the shimmer in Oktoberfest doesn't change colors, but I think the 1st pick here is a good example of what I'm getting at:

Now in this one, you don't see the similarities as much. Make sure to enlarge the photo to see the details better:

I'm feeling all Harvest-y

Man, I don't know about you, but I'm already all in the Fall mood! I broke out the pumpkin spice candles and I'm about to hit the Franklin Cider Mill on the way to the Renaissance Festival tomorrow morning. The Ren Fest/Cider Mill trip always signals the official start of Fall for me.

Sooo, I need a polish that screams the season, and I chose OPI's Deutsch You Want Me Baby? DYWMB is a bright orange packed full of yellow shimmer, it positively glows.

This photo is a great visual of the yellow shimmer, make sure to enlarge the pick:

Unfortunately, I had a pretty bad nail catastrophe yesterday, I severely broke two nails trying to get a box down from a shelf...and both breaks were on my swatch hand! So I hope you don't mind the one finger swatches for a while.
