Manicure of the Moment and My First Nail Video


Hello my little gumdrops of Autumn.

Today it is 80 degrees and sunny, feels a lot more like early Summer than Autumn. And in the week ahead, we are supposed to get more days in the nineties. Blech! Arizona sucks.

But since I am feeling Autumnal, I decided to do a manicure to reflect that. I applied two coats of Orly Enchanted Forest, a dreamy creamy warm dark forest green. Then I topped it with a coat of Sinful Colors It's All About You, a gold, bronze and red foil glitter in a clear base. I topped the entire production with China Glaze Fast Forward.

 Indoors, natural light with no flash.












Outdoors in direct sun. 

And now, for the event we have all been waiting for... 

(Yeah, right... lol)

My first ever attempt at a video. I have an older, not so fancy digital camera that can make short, silent video. I have never attempted to use this feature before today and I have never read up on the process, I just hit the menu on my camera, selected movie and winged it. The quality blows, it needs to be edited but that is something I need to learn how to do on my 'puter. But, I am kind of slightly jazzed that I was able to figure out how to do what I did by just flying by the seat of my pants. :D

So, grab some popcorn, get a soda, nab a box of Junior Mints and enjoy the show. And please be kind?

Thank you for popping by. Have a lovely day and may your polish never bubble.

  6. Isn't that Sinful polish fabulous! I love the glass flecks and the subtle glitter in it.

    I am sooooo jealous that these are $1.50 or less in the USA.
