I'll be completely honest - I had every intention of doing a 4th of July manicure, but after a dozen failed attempts at creating the perfect stars & stripes...I decided to forgo holiday-themed nails in favor of a style you can wear year-round.
For October, I wanted to use polishes in fall colors and do something that is fun & easy. While I've featured a spotted manicure before (here), this time I decided to try two different colored dots and make them large enough that they actually stand up off the nail, giving it a nice texture.
Now that September is finally here, I'm officially putting away my bright polishes and focusing on richer hues for the coming season. This manicure was inspired by my these gorgeous Tory Burch Flats. If you like this design, you could use any two colors you wanted...although I learned through a little trial & error that creme formulas work best.
Since I have now completed a full year's worth of Nail Color of the Month posts (see them all here), I've decided to move onto something new. Now instead of choosing one polish color to feature at the beginning of each month, I will be sharing a full manicure with you!
