A prelude to fall

Hi guys,
Alas, summer is almost gone, fall will be here in a short while. The weather is starting to show it, and even though the sun is bravely battling on, she is losing...

Sooooooooooo, that's enough melancholy for this post! Summer is great, with lots of bright colourful manicures! But fall, fall is time for vampy, dark and earthy tones <3 and even though it's not quite time yet, I was in the mood for one my favourite fall manicures.

This is not the most original manicure, mind you, but it's so beautiful I couldn't resist showing you anyway. Shown here is a base of OPI Tease-y does it, a pretty reddish brown colour with golden shimmer/flecks. And over it I put a nice thick coat of Nubar 2010. There are tons of similar polishes to this, Sally Hansen Hidden treasure and Gosh Rainbow, to name just a few. But they are all the same: beautiful irregular flakes that shift colour. From fire-like orange and red to bright yellow, green and even blue. A perfect transition from bright, summery colours, to the dark and warm colours of fall.

I hope you enjoy this, and see you soon!
