you can tell a lot from a persons nails.


Nails, nails, nails. I'm still getting used to this whole getting-to-wear-nail polish-at-work thing. The novelty hasn't worn off yet! Having my nails done just makes me feel more elegant and put together. Does anyone else feel that way?

With that said, it can only mean one thing. Yup, it's another nail post! This time I went with a medium grey colour. Why? I have a wedding to attend soon, so I didn't want something that would clash with my dress. Also, I wanted a deeper shade to really embrace fall colours. Since I'm not allowed anything too dark or bold (sigh), I thought this was the perfect solution. I am really happy with how it turned out, though!

I confess: One thing that is really exciting me about my trip to LA at the end of the month? I can paint my nails any shade I like! I'm debating over whether I should wear something super bright and bold or really dark and vampy. Any thoughts?

What colour are your nails right now?

  8. That' a lovely shade! I seriously change my color every 3-4 days. Anything from oxblood to light blue to black to pastel pinks have been on my fingers lately.

  11. Since you're going to LA I suggest having bright nails. I heard it isn't quite fall there yet so I think you can get away with bright nails for the time being. :) I'm currently loving vampy nails though.

  12. too bad I'm a nail biter.....HELP! Every time I go to the nail salon to get fake nails put on, when they are taken off, my nails are too thin (even though they're grown out) so they end up breaking! I was told if I were to just grow them out they would be so pretty! gaah, have had this habit since I was 7!

  35. Gorgeous shade on your nails. Why not wear some bright and fun colours in LA ? Colours you cant normally wear to work ?

  36. I am a big fan of classy red colour. But actually I always wear a nail polisher. In spring and summer it's mostly pink, coral or pastels and in fall and winter - darker, berry colours. Yours looks super pretty

  39. Great color! & yes, painted nails always are the finishing touch of elegance. I think you should go bright and bold because of the warmer weather in LA, you can be dark and vampy all fall and winter.
