No like really, scary. Do NOT attempt a patchwork mani without Seche Vite on hand. I thought my Out the Door would do just fine and after two hours I finally just lived with this and called it a night.

It's time for the Halloween manis to make their way into my life! I haven't decorated yet and don't know if I have the energy to do so :(. At least my nails can get into the swing of things.

Brrr, the leaves are falling and I can feel that brisk wind in the air that means it's fall. That means I'm begrudgingly putting away the neons and summer colors and starting to look at some fall colors. It was the perfect timing for Barielle's Me Couture collection to cross my path.
Taupe Notch - Creamy Dark Taupe
Vintage Gown - Creamy Rust with a Hot Pink
Berry Posh - Creamy Deep Fuchsia
Boho Chic - A Creamy Deep Sea Green
Soho at Night - Creamy, Grape Purple
I didn't use a basecoat or topcoat for any of these. Each 5 free polish retails for $8 a piece and can be purchased here.
I really like that Barielle is against animal testing. I only have a few of their polishes and these are all great color additions to my stash for 2014. While 4 of the six polishes are definitely rich, thick creams, Soho at Night at Moda Bleu are true jelly polishes and need a few more coats. The creams were nice to work with and I think would work well for stamping. The jellies were nice rich colors and would work for the leadlight technique no problem. For some reason Vintage Gown really stood out to me, a nice neutral color with a golden shimmer that I wasn't able to fully capture.

I made a Born Pretty Store order awhile back and included a lot of gems and accents. After staring at these teardrops that look like jade/turquoise I thought I'd match a stamp to them.
