Is it fall yet??

According to the calendar, we're fast approaching fall. With school having started a month ago here, and Labor Day just this past weekend, you'd think we'd be feeling some fall like weather.

Not so! It still feels like the middle summer x.x

Good afternoon!

I find it hard to want to wear fall colors when it's still so hot, but I've been trying! I've definitely veered away from summer brights, though. I think if I wish hard enough, it will finally cool off lol.

I've got lots to show y'all this afternoon, so bear with me. Nearly all of the manis are 30DoCC prompts, with a few other sprinkled in. There'll be a lot Inlinkz, too.

First up is today's #watermarblepracticewed mani, combined with 30DoCC. The prompts I needed to do were incorporating dots and magenta. I just received yesterday the PotM from Colors by Llarowe, Talk to the Hand, so that is my base (since I seemed to sell, or just can't find, my Electra Magenta....). I water marbled over that with OPI Black Onyx and Nail Envy. The dots are KBShimmer Pt Young Thing.

Yesterday was a simple mani. The prompt for it was turquoise, so I chose Zoya Talia with an accent of Muse.

Monday's mani satisfied three different challenge prompts- PAA Mani Monday/florals, 30DoCC/blue, and 52WPNMC/water color. My water color base was made up of Zoya Blu, Yummy, and Sia. The florals were from Bundle Monster BM-716, stamped in MdU navy.

I honestly didn't like the choices for Stamping Sunday, so I didn't vote or participate. I just used a new to me textured polish that I had finally found, SpaRitual Tango. It's such a pretty orange :)

Since I had some running around to do Saturday, I did up a simple mani just to have something on my nails :) Zoya Serenity with Monet.

Friday's mani was very simple, as well. I just wasn't feeling too much nail art last week. This one was Zoya Logan with the Satin Seal top coat.

For last Thursday's mani, I used a new stamping plate. The base color is Zoya Mason. The images all came from Marianne Nails no 58, stamped in MdU silver. Marianne Nails plates stamp very nicely, I highly recommend them :) I also adore faeries, so may need to get the other plates to go with the three I have from MN.

Last Wednesday's water marble was pointed petals, which I also combined the yellow prompt for 30DoCC. I'm quite pleased with how this turned out. I used OPI Unfrost my Heart, Primarily Yellow, and Pen & Pink. It kinda reminded me of pink lemonade.

And, lastly, is last Tuesday's mani. I think it's the most fallish mani I've done so far, and I'm quite impressed with how it turned out. I wasn't quite intending a half moon mani, but that's what happened lol. Colors used were Zoya Burke and Spencer.
