Florida Winter Weather

image

So I live in Florida. Yeah I know, lol. We don’t get a real winter. We get the it might be chilly, it will probably rain sometime during the day, oh and it might get hot mid day but Merry Christmas Lmao.

image

So we get to wear things like shorts and sweaters cause were so confused sometimes we just prepare for everything or at least I do. HA!

image

But I love this Cowlneck Sweater from Macy’s. The color is awesome and it’s soft and comfy. I like it because I’m not a huge turtleneck kinda girl (I feel like I’m being suffocated and not in the good way :0/)

image

The color matched perfectly with my boots from Traffic Shoes and Wrap Sweater from Billabong. A tan match made in heaven lol.

I hope your winter is going great. Do you have any weird weather issues where you live?

My Top 6 Fall/Winter Nail Colors

I figured I would pick 6 fall/Winter nail colors that I was absolutely loving. I hate uneven numbers so naturally I rounded up one. HA! Anyway, I love black, nude and grey. Those are my all time favorites for fall or any season really, so I figured I would pick some of those colors as well as a few others I have been loving on my nails this season.
image

First we have this red with a touch of black. Both these colors are kind of sheer so if you want true to bottle color I suggest 2 coats of these. Here I only have one coat for each color. It is Wet N Wild polish in I Red A Good Book and Ebony Hates Chris
image

I’m in love with this matte grey color. The polish dries matte so if you want it shiny I suggest letting it dry fully and then using a shiny top coat because I notice if you paint clear over it to quickly the matte seeps through in some areas. It is SinfulColors polish in My Turn
image

This color is a little more edgy. It’s very dark but it’s not exactly black it’s more of a purple ink black. This one dries slightly shiny and I added another coat of clear for more shine. This is SinfulColors in Inkwell
image

Now there had to be a nude color in here of course because I love my nude everything (no pun intended, lol) I have a nude color that’s my all time favorite which is SinfulColors in Vacation Time but I thought I would try a new one to see if I can find a new love. It’s a bit of a nude orange color like an autumn leaf. This one is SinfulColors in Bellini
image

Then of course the color of the season seems to be a color that was tabu after Labor Day for years but I’ve always wondered why because it’s so awesome when done right, lol. That color is of course white and these nails are White Hot! This is SinfulColors in Snow Me White.
image

Finally this is a color that’s all over in fall. Whether it’s in the leaves or an outfit. Gold is like a staple in my wardrobe now for fall. Plus it looks great with tan skin. So this color was a really pretty gold I picked up. It’s SinfulColors in Gold Medal.
image

Well ladies those are my top 6 nail colors for the fall/winter. Hope you enjoyed this post and try some or all of the colors. There are a lot of sales going on in Walgreens and CVS on makeup and nail polish so now is the perfect time to grab some new colors. (Any excuse to shop right ladies, lol)

Taxi Cab Yellow

20130813-172421.jpg

I have a habit of buying nail polish, throwing it in my purse and forgetting I have it for weeks and then when I get my nails done I go in my bag like oh here’s that polish I bought let’s try this one lol. Yes I’m the girl that brings her own polish to the nail salon lol. Mostly because I have so many casualties with painting my own nails at home. Head itches, kids calling, dog jumping, etc. so usually I leave the nail painting alone until I get quiet nail salon time lol.

I bought this polish from Walmart awhile back and just figured I would try it out. It’s a bright yellow. Basically taxi cab yellow lol. Perfect for summer, especially if you have a tan. It looks really pretty and bright in the sunlight but it’s not neon so if your not really into neon polish but like bright polish colors this ones for you.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polish in Butter-Fly Stroke (retails for about $4)

When I first swatched it on paper (I tend to do that sometimes) I didn’t like it but then I painted my toes with it and loved it. It’s a very thick, fast drying formula so you need to be quick and precise when painting your nails to avoid streaking or clumping. It has a wide brush which I like because it covers a good amount of nail depending on how wide your nail beds are. But all in all I love the polish and formula and fast drying is always a plus for me. ;0)
