fall and nail polish

fall. fall is what i am longing for. i’m ready for layers, boots, and blazers (obviously).

i painted my nails navy yesterday in defiance of august. although it’s actually cooled down here in texas (it’s in the high 80’s and low 90’s…say whaaat?! love it.)

speaking of nails, i found my new favorite nail polish. the few times i’ve used it, i’ve gone practically chip-free for 2 weeks. unheard of.

and that is my tidbit of wisdom to share with you today. happy monday, dears.

linking up at the pleated poppy for what i wore wednesday & harpers happenings for steppin out!

      You’re welcome! I think it’s new…I’ve bought more nail polish this year than I have in a while and I just noticed it last month.

    Our temps here in Ga. have been a tad cooler than normal. NO complaints here! Love your mix of prints with the polka dots and the floral in your shoe.

      Ooo that’s so nice!

      Thank you, Mimi! Have a great night!

    I never paint my nails because it doesn’t last, so thanks for the reco. I will check it out!! You look great. I love the polka dots, and you look great in navy!!

      You’re so sweet, Shelly! And I hope you do. I have found that the flat colors are the most chip-resistant in the collection. The ones with a bit of sparkle last about a week.
