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.


  1. Lovely combo, it is gorgeous for fall. :D

  2. wow would have never thought to layer gold over green.. this is awesome.. i like the bling bling

  3. I like that the video actually shows the sparkle. I just can't catch that with stills. Now to shoot better stuff. :D

  4. So shiny! Looks gorgeous, and great job on your first video.

  5. I love All About You! It looks so nice over the green.

  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.

  7. oh i tagged u in some awards too:

  8. I love those colors together. Enchanted Forest is my favorite green. And I'm very jealous of your weather, its still around 105 down here in Phx.


I love to know what you're thinking. I dig honest discourse and lively discussion, even a good debate. I do not dig hate speech or personal attacks either against myself or my gentle readers.
