polished jewels.

Have you ever just stood in front of a rack of nail polishes comparing the nuances between two (barely!) different shades of pink?  Yeah, that’s me.  There are just way too many delicious options when it comes to nail polish and the choices for fall are no exception.  But instead of the usual goth black lacquer (somehow calling it “midnight” makes it trés chic), I rounded up some gorgeous jewel-toned polish for something refreshingly unexpected.

I’m not a big fan of red wine, but pass all things burgundy colored my way.  This rich shade of red is perfect for a fall afternoon and vampy enough to wear into the night.

Pretty sure you all know my affinity for color by now.  In fact, I’ve nearly conquered ROY G BIV with the help of today’s outfit, which revolves around G for green.  It’s not just for Kermit the Frog and St. Patty’s Day.

Green is a surprisingly easy color to wear.  And I’m not talking sissy shades like olive or forest.  Let a bold, kelly green skirt pop against neutral-colored top and shoes.  Add a touch of gold for extra polish.  See?  Not so hard is it?
