The Dream of the Apples, preview. This polish is part of my upcoming series inspired by the 1978 film, The Wicker Man. Most of those colors are waiting until the spring (just in time for your May Day celebrations, natch) but this one just says Christmas to me, so it’s showing up in mid-to-late November.

I did this mani for my friend’s old-timey wedding, for which I wore a 1940s-style dress. I wanted something classic looking while still being fancy. This was my first time using a dotting tool. I really like the look of the matte dots (Sinful Colors Savage) over the glossy red (by So Lacque!). Unfortunately red is SUCH a bitch to clean up so I kinda failed at it.

Sinful Colors Kissy is such a fabulous polish! I love its jelly shimmer. Layering it with Stealing from Charity really brought out the shimmer in both, and helped highlight the soft red/gold color shift that Stealing does.

Index: 1 coat Fanchromatic Nails Astrometrics over 1 coat Sinful Colors Precious Metal. Others are 2 coats SC Kissy, with 1 coat FN Stealing From Charity layered on ring finger.

Found these on my phone. About 2 months old. My how my nails have grown!

Fanchromatic layering: 1 coat Spatial Anomaly over 2 coats Xenobotanist.

I kinda totally don’t care that I already have a nail polish inspired by Tora Ziyal. I am so totally obsessed with this dress that I might need to make another one based on it.

Check out this freaking amazing double rainbow I saw near my house! It was at least 5x more awesome in person. Spanned the entire sky.

A Little Princess (1995). I rewatched this movie a few days ago, and the thing that really struck me was the color & design aesthetic. So many rich greens and intricate fabrics. So moody. I need to watch it again and take notes!
