THE PERFECT TRANSITION MANI, WITH A TOUCH OF GLITTER
You’ve heard it, you’ve seen it on Instagram… It’s officially Fall. Sigh. Except it’s full-on Summer in LA, you know? I used to LOVE Fall when I lived in Canada, because Summer there wasn’t really that amazing anyways (to me) and I found Fall to be the comfort food of seasons, with its sweaters, cinnamon lattes and spicy scented candles.
Now that I’m in LA though, I’m really not a big fan of Fall, because Summers here are so frickin’ magical, and Fall only means the end of Beach Season is coming. Boo-f*cking-hoo.
When it comes to transition pieces, everyone always talks about clothes and makeup, but I like to also include nails - So today, I’m bringing you the perfect transition mani. It has some light pink that whispers Summer, some deep burgundy that screams Fall, and some glitter, because glitter is the best thing ever.
Really, I’m obsessed with this colour combination and I feel like it’s perfect for when the weather is still hot and you want to wear Summer clothes, but it also goes well with a sweater and OTK boots.
I won’t pretend this is a complicated nail art that requires a tutorial, because it’s basically just painting your nails different colours (lol) - But here’s what I used:
Base Coat: Essie Base Coat
Pink Shade: Essie Gel Couture in PR Stunt
Burgundy Shade: Essie Gel Couture in Gala-Vanting
Glittery Nail Polish: Urban Outfitters nail polish in Night Moves
Top Coat: Essie Gel Couture Top Coat
In case this is the first nail post you see from me, I always use the Essie Gel Couture Top Coat, because I really find that it makes a huge difference in how long my manis last. I also really love the wide brush, that really coats almost your entire nail in one stroke, and I find that it really dries quickly and leaves a nice, thick, glossy coat.
What about you guys? Do you wear different coloured nails? If you do, what’s your favourite colour combination? Let me know in the comments section below, or come hit me up on Instagram, where I post exclusive content and love talking to you guys!!
