It’s officially fall, even though our temps here in CA are still 80s – 90s (our seasonal transition periods can get lengthy), so I’m in the mood for autumnal color palettes. I’m not ready for vampy shades just yet, but dusty hues are getting me giddy! I’m currently trying to talk myself out of buying the new Zoya Luscious line for fall, we’ll see how strong I am 😉 in the mean time I’m looking at my nail polish collection and zeroing in on the berries, taupes, and beiges.
One shade in particular I’ve been wearing all of September, a jelly lavender grey taupe ish color… called Vickie. I’ve worn it alone as a two coat manicure, as well as a jelly sandwich with the gold cellophane flakey Maria Luisa (one coat Vicki, one coat ML, one coat Vickie, one coat ML). The jelly sandwich gives off a cool dimensional effect, and also gives me major nostalgia of SinfulColors Prosecco, that dusty taupe with the golden shimmer that was a hotty in the nail polish circles like 5ish years ago.
