Autumn is my favorite season. I’m lucky to live in New England, where the changing foliage is stunning and dramatic. Even on my daily commute to and from work over the last few weeks, I’ve noticed the previously green trees turning gorgeous shades of yellow, orange, red, and russet. I love the crisp bite to the morning air. Apples are my favorite fruit, caramel my favorite candy, and Halloween my favorite holiday. And the fall collections of nail polish are some of my favorite colors!

Ok, so trying to get back on track with my posts, here’s my themed mani from a few weeks ago. I am really, really bad at camouflage, which seems strange since it’s just squiggly, random lines, but there you go. Ugh. I must have spent about four hours trying to get this right, including dying time. Bleh. After this, I went out and bought a nail wheel for practice. 😀

I do have some nail art for you guys, but I’ve been really sick for a couple of weeks, so I haven’t had too much energy for it. But I got my new SquareHue box yesterday, so I wanted to post swatches.

I drove back home yesterday to find a note on my door saying my neighbor had taken in my packages (so nice of her! She didn’t know when I was coming home), so I spent the afternoon waiting breathlessly for her to get home from work. I had boxes from Skoshbox (review coming soon), Zoya, and SquareHue: I was in polish heaven for the night! So I have a lot of swatches for the next couple of weeks. 🙂

Sorry for this post being so late! I’m still visiting my mother, and while I did this mani on Sunday, I just haven’t gotten around to posting. Something about being on vacation makes me so lazy…

Becca and I made this a split theme because she loves tribal and I love stripes, but I decided to challenge myself and try a simple tribal design. I was hampered by being away from home so I didn’t have my full collection to choose from, but I packed polishes that I thought would go together and I really like the result!

I tried to come up with some patriotic designs for the 4th of July, but I just wasn’t getting anywhere. And then I thought, well, why do I need to do a flag design? I wanted to think of something distinctly American. What’s more American than Levi’s blue jeans?

Such an appropriate theme for this week! And while that wasn’t our thought when we planned this challenge (rainbow is one of the themes from the 31-day challenged Becca and I used as a template), this little bit of serendipity makes me smile. Hooray for another step for equality! If only the Voter Protection Act decision had been equally on target. *sigh*
Okay, back to nails.
Enough politics, show me the rainbow!
I still have a few more days of school, but summer is officially here in New England; it’s 60% humidity right now. Someone once joked that New England has four seasons: nearly winter, winter, still winter, and construction. So true.

I originally planned some sort of epic nail art with fish and a little crab and everything, but the truth is, I’m bad at art. 🙂
