Fall Nails + a GIVEAWAY!

Happy First Day of Fall!! In honor of it officially being fall, today I'm linking up with Pinky from p!nkpers!stence for "Falling for Fall" and sharing my favorite nail colors for this season! There's a fun giveaway at the end of this post you won't want to miss!

This Fall my nail color choices are drawn to dark purples, grays, dark reds, and more muted colors. Having my nails painted helps me feel more put together and it ties an outfit together!

OPI I Sāo Paulo Over There (color in giveaway)

To help your nail polish last the longest, remember to always prep your nails beforehand by pushing back any cuticles and using acetone or a good nail dehydrator like CND Scrubfresh. After applying the polish, it's good to put a cuticle oil on your cuticles each day to keep them looking in tiptop shape!


With all this talk of nails, it's giveaway time!
I wanted to share my love of nails with one of my lucky readers!

 I'm giving away CND Nourishing RemoverCND Scrubfresh, CND 
Solar Oil, and two amazing OPI polishes (colors shown above). US Residents only.
Winner will be announced NEXT Friday, October 2nd!

  1. Lindsey, I love the muted colours you showcased at the beginning of this article - I'd never thought of using a soft mocha on my nails before. It looks really lovely, I'm off to buy myself some of that colour!!! Good luck to everyone who enters your giveaway, very generous of you ... and warm wishes for a very happy Autumn x

    With blessings, Callie (CreaTEAvity), London, UK #blogelina

  4. I love this! I have so many go to spring/summer colors but barely any when it comes to the cold weather months. Definitely going to check out the OPI Anti-Bleak!

  5. My nail lady told me that the fashion for nail colours is a year behind fashion colours - she doesn't know why. She said her clients have to remember when they visit overseas that it may be summer or winter (like here in New Zealand) and plan accordingly. heaven knows what I will need to wear when I visit Arizona next year!

  6. I love the muted colors for the fall. I love the dark purples, grays, and deep reds that you have mentioned in your article. My signature color for nail polish is black, however I would like to try gray because I saw Michelle Obama with that color of nail polish and I fell in love!

  10. I tend not to paint my nails with specific colors for Fall. Although I will say that I generally stick to colors like orange, lime green, purple, and black in October because of Halloween.

  12. Ooh I really like the Lincoln Park after dark colors. I'm into the darker fall colors, it gets me excited for Halloween.

  13. I've been biting my nails for most of my life so I've never been able to wear nail varnish. I have pretty weak nails now; stupid me :(

    ReplyDelete
  14. I never paint my nails because they are always short, broken & chipped, but I do like these colours very much - much more than bright vivid colours. These more muted colours are very me!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ohhh.... I too LOVE the dark colors for Fall. Out of these choices, my favorite is the Sing in Color. Thanks for sharing these new colors - I've not seen them before now and will be adding them to my collection soon! :) #blogelinacommentathon

  21. I love those colors. I have often attempted to go outside my comfort zone when it comes to nail colors, and I think that this might be a good time to give it a try!

  22. Lindsey - those are the perfect fall nails! Beautiful color palette. I'm not so great at painting my finger nails. Though, I have discovered Jamberry nails and love dressing my nails up with those when I get a chance. Do you match your nails to the seasons or the colors you are wearing for the season?

    1. I have never tried Jamberry nails, but have heard that they are awesome! I usually match my nails to the season- pinks in spring and summer and darker and muted tones in fall and winter!

  23. I have nail envy! Your nails are so perfectly manicured! I love the fall color selection and think that I will add learning to give myself the perfect mani/pedi to my Bucket List!

  24. I love all the Fall colors...especially on nails. Yours look very nice, by the way. I've never tried prepping my nails before painting them, but I will try it because my polish always chips off. thanks for the tip!

  25. Love a good giveaway! I I don't often paint my nails but I do like to keep them healthy. I use essential oils and coconut oil on both hands and feet.

  27. Love the colors. Fall and Winter are the two times of year I paint my nails the most. I entered. I hope I win!

  30. I wear dark red on my toe nails, but it always looks too dark on my hands. I like my Jamberry wraps for my hands!

  32. This is a good giveaway. I've heard so much about Shellac but I've never tried it. My nails usually don't last too long :(

  33. Love the nail colors and the tips, I've never used cuticle oil before, but I will be looking into it!

  36. I love dark colored nail polish. I have to admit I wear it every season but I never tried black but boy I am now:) #commentathon

  37. I always get compliments on my cuticles from my manicurist but I never do anything to them. Is there a such thing as good cuticle genes? Lol.

    1. Your cuticles must not grow as fast as everyone else's! Lucky you!

  38. Love OPI, I've never used Shellac before I'll have to look into that.

  39. Very cute nail colors. I will be trying a few of these out. :-)

  40. Whenever I see 'different' nail polishes (outside of more neutral colors I like) on other people and like them, they never look the same on me. For instance, I am visually attracted to the look of Vinylux Thisle Thicket, but I have a feeling that it would not look good on me. I think that is a really pretty color.

  41. Oy, my nails are typically a mess. Wish I had time to take care of them the way I should. I did enter your giveaway, with the hope that if I win, it will prompt me to take better care of them! #commentathon

  42. I stopped biting my nails after being a lifetime (til then) biter. I love it. I have a good stable of colors, and have recently used Jamberry. I like mixing Jamberry with access nails painted with OPI or China Glaze. Thank you for sharing! You have some great fall colors for a maicure.

  43. I can never keep my polish on my hands so I am more of a pedicure person. Love gray for some reason!
