Tomorrow evening I'm heading up to Marblehead, MA (a coastal town north of Boston) for the wedding of my friend Izzy and her fiancé Darren. The two of them live in NYC, and I've actually never met Darren before, so hopefully I'm able to snag at least a moment or two of his time to meet him officially! It's been quite awhile since I've seen Izzy too, so I'ma squeeze her fo sho.
Since it's practically fall, the color scheme for my wedding outfit was leaning on the darker side. Burgundy, to be exact. It's a really simple dress, but it's moderately flattering (errr... it was the last time I tried it on anyway - fingers crossed on that one) and is easily dressed up with some accessories. Some of those accessories include two thin leopard print belts to go around my natural waist, which is where these fierce autumn wedding nails come in!
Not to toot my own horn, but... I think these came out pretty damn good. Here's what I used:
Goldie But Goodie by China Glaze, Case Study by Essie, and Raisin Rage and Stiletto - both by Revlon. Case Study hasn't been taken out for a spin in a DOG'S age. What was my problem?? This milky beige polish is awesome!
To start, I painted all of my nails 2 coats of Raisin Rage, except my ring finger, which got 2 coats of Case Study. Next I used Goldie But Goodie to place a few large spots around my accent nail. Using a toothpick dipped into Stiletto, I stippled some C's around the large spots of gold and also added a few smaller random spots around the nail.
You can find more of my leopard print nails here, though be forewarned that they are all pretty old posts:

What do you have planned this weekend? Anyone else attending a wedding? What will you rock on your nails?
