Autumn Copper

Posted in Beauty, Style by mcarmen5 on 10/01/2010

Hello, world!

It’s been so long since I’ve touched my blog, but I’m so thrilled to be back.  I can’t say yet that I’ll be able to write as frequently as I’d like — today marks the first day of my last week before the LSAT exam — but I’m happy that I get to today.

I can’t exactly pinpoint when and where my love for nail polish (and let’s just say it, all beauty products) began, but I’m still irrevocably in love and my heart quickens every time I see a beautiful color.  I like to add new colors every fall and this year was no exception.  My two favorites this season are China Glaze’s Ingrid (Vintage Vixen collection) and OPI’s Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous (Swiss Collection).  Both are so much fun to wear and each have an element of surprise to them.

Today, I’m swatching Ingrid — a color I like, with a name I adore even more because it reminds me of Casablanca, one of my all-time favorite movies.  Some call Ingrid a “greige” and those a bit disappointed simply refer to it as “brown.”  I think it’s a gorgeous muddy copper-greige that’s a bit of a chameleon and perfect for autumn.  It’s warm and there are green and pink micro-glitters that come out as more “coppery” gold when the light strikes.  It makes studying a bit more fun :)

    I can’t say I know a thing about nail polish, it is interesting to get more insight as to why women really love nail polish (i always thought it was interesting that you(women) paint your toe nails, and doing it seems to be like an event. Maybe you do a lot of self reflecting while doing it. Or maybe the polish and remover make you feel happy haha).

    Good luck with studying and the exams!
