The Fall Primaries

Hey everyone!  I am back.  I know I have posted on here much in September, but I have been busy and super tired lately.  I have been thinking about soooo many different things that I can post here and I have tons of ideas including some styling videos and hauls and more.  How have you all been?  The weather has been legitimately out of control.  For about two weeks in September, it felt like it was turning into fall and then all of a sudden at the end and when October started, it was (and still is) 80 degrees all of the time.  

With that being said, I am so happy to start primarily wearing darker colors on my nails and I am most certainly ready to start wearing darker clothes.  Not that I tend to follow rules when it comes to fashion, I just really like making it feel a little bit more like fall around this time of year all around.  I thought it would be cute to do a post on the fall primaries.  No, I am not talking about an election of some kind, hahah.  As you know, red, blue and yellow are the primary colors so I selected a color from each palette to share with you.  I hope this inspires you to try something different, read on!

Blue: Ski Teal We Drop, OPI

Yellow: Colour Punch, MAC

Red: Mirror Mirror, Sinful Colors

Ski Teal We Drop is a great color.  I feel like it came out with the Swiss collection or something and when I saw it I knew I had to have it.  It is exactly what it says, a teal, but a dark teal.  I think this is the perfect selection for someone who wants to wear a blue and transition to the fall at the same time.  As you all know, I have raved about the formulation of the OPI polishes before, so thats not even a question.  Dark teal is divine in my book!

Mirror Mirror is interesting.  I love the color and the reason why I picked it up was because I heard that Sinful Colors came out with a "Gel" range and I wanted to see if it was worth the hype.  For $1.99, Sinful Colors makes a great polish and I usually like all of the colors they come out with.  All of these things combined, nothing ever stops me from picking up a couple of bottles when I'm at the drugstore.  

This polish, because it was marketed as gel, was marked up a dollar to $2.99, which I didn't mind because that is also a steal.  I have this color red already but I was so into the "oxblood" color because it was so lovely last year and I knew it would be again.  What I have to say is that the formula of this one is not as good as the regular ones.  I was surprised because I also thought the color payoff would be extra shiny (rightfully so, as gel polishes normally come out this way).  The application wasn't easy and it was kind of goopy.

The MAC polish is really pretty.  The application is really nice and I love the color, it just reminds me of falling leaves and it makes me genuinely happy.

Will you try these colors?  Let me know in the comments below or send me a tweet.  Thank you so much for reading the blog and be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel if you want to see some outfits coming up soon!
