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
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.
