Fingers + Toes (See Jane Painted)

I received my first fall-themed manicure and pedicure after work in San Francisco today.  I scanned over the dark colors with excitement and glee but ended up passing over favorites like Essie's Wicked for a more transitional color.  I have all winter (and in Chicago, it's very long) to wear dark, vampy colors.

The perfect taupe-gray and muted lavender are all mine...until they chip, at least.  Chinchilly by Essie on my fingernails (left), and Island Hopping on my toes (right).





















What are you wearing on your nails this fall?

  11. Chinchilly is definitely one of my favorite colors. I keep trying to mix it up, but I always go back to it in a pinch because it looks good with everything! I don't have Island Hopping, but it's so pretty and I'm putting it on my list. I've also been really into Russian Navy by OPI lately.

  13. I saw the green color and loved it. Essie Jazz is another cool/weird nude-ish color. Currently wearing a teal/blue nail here and here.

  14. You picked awesome colors!! I've been eyeing these Essie pretties, but Katie has also been tempting me with some of Chanel's new colors. You said it best: fall is for muted colors...winter is plenty dark all on its own.

  16. I ADORE the colors you chose! Perfect together. And I've been loving transition colors for fall (obsessed with gray nails right now) -- still excited about navy for winter, though! Travel safe, doll!
