It's Finally Fall!

Studies are increasingly linking more illnesses to depression, including: osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease, some forms of cancer, eye disease and back pain.

It's finally beginning to feel like fall here, so I decided to do a celebratory fall/NDAM manicure. I used Orly Enchanted Forest for my green, Hard Candy Mischief for the orange glitter (I'll show it on its own soon - it's a dupe for China Glaze Ick-a-Body), and an L.A. Colors gold striper for the gold stripes (duh).

I'm very fond of this manicure - the glitter is much sparklier and brighter in real life, and it's very easy to do, especially with the striper brush on the gold. Also, I would like to bring something to your attention. See how opaque that orange glitter is? Yeah, that's one coat. If only every glitter was that dense!

That's all I have for today...I am absolutely exhausted, and it's not even 6:00. I hope your week is off to a good start!
