Fuchsia and Mustard Nails

I'd personally like to pretend that my last blog wasn't so depressing and somber and just move ahead with this nail blog like it's any other Friday. This change has been difficult already and it's only been a few days. Tomorrow, if all goes as planned (and for the love of god, I hope it goes as planned), I'll be moving into my new apartment with the help of my Dear Ol' Dad. Thank you to all the people who sent me messages and left me nice comments on Monday - that was really nice of you and it helped me feel a little less alone.

Now, ugh. Nails, I guess? Sure, let's show off some bright nails. Those are always cheerful. I picked out this polish pairing before my move and have kept these bottles safe in my carry-on bag so that they were easily reachable for today's polish post.

Pink and yellow nails

I wanted to use my wonderfully mustard Essence Little Miss Sunrise polish again, after having not used it since last fall. But rather than use it with other jewel tones and autumnal tones, as I have in the past, I wanted to pair it with something really bright and summery. Enter Sally Hansen's Fuchsia Power.

Annnd that's pretty much all there is to it. Fuchsia Power only needs two coats for opacity but Little Miss Sunrise needed three. By the way, one of my other nail polish looks that used Little Miss Sunrise has been a pretty big hit on Pinterest. Feel free to refresh your memory of that mani here.

Alright bitchessssss, wish me luck tomorrow. And everyday after that. Thanksss. And in case you were wondering... yes, I've had Dunkin Donuts twice this week. #PraiseJesus.

  1. It's always so funny to me when my manis end up a huge "hit" on pinterest. It's usually the ones that were totally born out of laziness and I'm like "wait! no! I can be more creative than that" haha! People like what they like though! I'm so happy to see your post today! And yes, bright polishes always help (or at least they try!) Yay for dunkin' donuts and new apartments! I'm so glad you have the support of your family! I'm proud of you, friend. You're handling all this beautifully. Such class you have. You need to teach me your ways :)

  2. Looking good.

  3. Love this color combo! It reminds me of a summer sunset, and I might just have to copy you;)

    1. Oooh, you're right! I didn't even think of that :)

  4. Pretty pretty prettyyy! And all the luck in the world tomorrow! Which is actually today, because I am up wayyyy too late.

  5. Great combo! Unexpected, too. WAY TO BE ORIGINAL. Haha! And remember to lift with your legs and not with your back. ;)

  6. These nails are gorgeous!
    Good luck!


Leave me some love!
