Fall is upon us here in NYC. The temps have dropped, but it’s still nice enough to only need a light sweater.

Oh, fall. This is the time of year I love, rivaled only by the time between winter and spring. You know, that time when it’s not too hot, not too cold?

Perfect.

And so, now is the perfect time to put away some of my brights, and start experimenting with some darker colors. I wanted something neutral (shocker, right? 🙂 ) with just a touch of color. I wanted something classic, as I feel as though that’s where my style is taking me this season.

Don’t worry. I’ll have a post up on my fall picks soon enough. 🙂 But first: let me show you my nail selfie:

I used Julep’s Lois (pale pink) with some loose glitter I had in my arsenal (I think it’s some old body glitter that I never actually used for a makeup look I wanted for Halloween) over Julep’s Mona (dark grey creme). I didn’t even use a striping brush (although you could for even more precision), I just turned the brush on its side and made a quick stripe, then laid a little glitter over the top for a subtle touch of sparkle.

Sometimes, all you need is simple.
