Update and NOTD: OPI's Gone Gonzo!

So my beautiful baby boy arrived on Monday, October 17! Since then life has been busy busy busy. I haven't worn any makeup since then and I just got around to painting my nails yesterday. I'm hoping I can get back into a regular beauty routine soon. In the meantime, here's OPI's Gone Gonzo! from the Muppets collection.
5 coats, natural light
I just love this color. GG is blue micro glitter and large circular silver glitter in a clear base. I know it would be really fun to layer over a blue creme but I probably won't get around to trying for a while. I still have 11 other muppets polishes to try! And it took me forever to actually get a chance to do this so I don't know when I'll get to change it. Which color should I try next time lil peanut gives me a chance?

Love, Jessica

OPI Muppets Collection and Update

So it's been a while since my last post and I'm really sorry about that. I thought I still had time to at least show all of my favorite fall nail polish colors but it turns out I didn't. I started having contractions on Monday and I've been struggling through early labor since then. We don't know when he will arrive but I can't wear nail polish until then. It would interfere with one of the monitors they will have to use when I actually get to go to the hospital. Trust me, I'm very very frustrated with how my life has been so completely wrapped around every little feeling in my belly for 6 days now. They keep telling me he will be here before Tuesday so I've been holding onto that.

ANYWAYS, I picked up the OPI muppets collection yesterday and I'm so freaking excited!
Hopefully it won't take too long for me to be able to test all of these out! I'm such a big muppets fan, I just had to have all of them!

I've missed blogging so please expect lots of regular posts from me once things get back on track. I will swatch all of these at least. I haven't decided yet if I'll finish fall nail favorites or move on to winter favorites or just forget it entirely. If there's something you want to see, please just let me know!

Love, Jessica

Fall 2011 Nail Picks: OPI Suzi Takes the Wheel

Has it really been almost a month since the last time I blogged? I've been so freaking busy lately. Lots of last minute preparations before the baby arrives! I'm only 3 weeks away from my due date.
So I thought I could do a pretty simple series on my favorite fall nail polishes. I have 5 picks that I'll try to get all posted before the baby gets here!

OPI Suzi Takes the Wheel

So this is Suzi Takes the Wheel from OPI's recent Touring America collection. My partner picked it out for me and honestly, I did not have high hopes for it. In the bottle it looks so very gray but on the nail it looks like a great army green. I've been wearing it a lot lately! It's definitely in my top 5 of my collection. And UGH, my cuticles are so nasty. I've been trying to take better care of them but it's just been more difficult with the colder weather coming in.

Fall is my favorite season by far. The trees are beautiful and I love wearing dark colors and jewel tones.
I'd love to hear what your favorite fall colors are too!

Love, Jessica
