Swatch: Borghese Tangelo Sherbet

This is the first time that I have tried this brand: Borghese. It worked fine. I did, however, have to do several coats to get this color opaque enough and strong enough against my skin-tone.

It has been a while since I have done anything to my cuticles, I suppose now would be the time to start moisturizing again?! Hopefully, it doesn't look too bad.

This is a pink color, maybe leaning a bit peach, but definitely pink.

Fall Leaves Manicure

Left Hand
 It's been getting a bit colder here lately, so what better time than to post a falling leaves manicure. For this manicure, I used Love & Beauty Cucumber Melon scented nail polish, Love & Beauty Olive, OPI Rising Star and OPI Take the Stage. Both OPI are from the Holiday 2009 Burlesque Collection.

Right Hand

I decided to show both my hands because I really liked this manicure.

Here's a close up of the leaves:

Swatch: Love & Beauty Light Green Cucumber Melon Scented Nail Polish

Love this color! It is a nice light green that looks great on my nails. And, it really is scented. Now, it doesn't last as long as the Funky Fingers scented polish scents do, but it lasted enough for me to notice it did have a scent.

Swatch: China Glaze Midnight Kiss

China Glaze Midnight Kiss

China Glaze Midnight Kiss is from the 2011 Holiday Collection. As you can see in the photo, they all had silver caps. I like this because it seems like it is a bunch of super-micro-glitter that comes together to make a muted metallic gold look.

You can see in the photo is is still a little sheer, but it applies nicely and builds opacity.
