I suck at posting what I'm wearing, but I swear I've been doing the challenge :p!

Last week, I wore L.A. Colors Summertime.

Okay, I just thought up the October themes on the fly, someone said we should post them all in advance I think? Which is fine, i'm just worried i'm going to repeat themes/colors too soon.

Week 1: Jewel tones (If you don't think you know what jewel toned is, here's a link: http://www.thedailyvarnish.com/2011/08/ ... ish-trend/)
Week 2: Purple (I don't think we've done purple? I need to make a list.)
Week 3: PROFIT. Actually I forgot what I thought of originally while I was looking for a site that shows jewel tones. I can't remember at all. Help?
Week 4: Off week, but it's Halloween so show off Halloween nails if you do them!

Kitteh, do you want to pick the last one? I still can't remember what I had in mind. I'm trying to keep a good mix between color/theme/stylistic challenge.

The sad thing is I can't really paint my nails this week due to a massive eczema outbreak. Well I can paint them, but I can't take it off unless I just peel it and i'm trying not to do that.

Yeah, I don't know what profit means either. Those weeks look good. I just ordered some jewel tones from zoya and I'm excited to get a purple.

What about metallics? Or maybe grays?

You guys not recognizing this probably says way more about me than it does you.

Don't worry, MBM, I got the Sth Park reference!

Ok, how about pale blue for week 3? The jewel colours might be a dark week in terms of shades, and the optional Halloween week might be more of a theme/nail art week, and pale blue is different to that.

Light blue would be an excellent opportunity for me to use Lady Muck! Not that I've painted my nails in ages, but I organized all of my polishes and nail treatments! Now I just have to use them!

I got my freebies from the Zoya flash promo last week, so I am wearing Charla. Yeah, yeah... it's a stretch to call it a jewel tone (blue topaz, maybe?) but I think an intense, sparkly turquoise sort of has a place amongst the jewel tones. I actually have several others that would fit the bill, but I wanted to try it and whatever I picked is only staying on a couple of days because I have to go neutral for a job interview on Friday.

for jewel tones, OF COURSE i chose sapphire. this is barry m navy plus one of my NCLA nail wraps from the vegan cuts beauty box. i did one on each ring finger because i was petrified to try them, and i sort of effed them up but you can't tell at a distance. also, i wish i had realized sooner that they're not as dark navy as i thought. they would have gone better with last week's mani (zoya neve), i think. ANYWAY:

Yes! I actually already did my nails because we watched a lot of tv last night, I just brought down a whole basket because purple is my favorite color so I have a lot.

I have so many purples. I might do a few different ones throughout the week. Started off with ELF dark purple glitter. (not my photo)

Image

So, all of my new ELF polishes are super thick, sticky, and gummy, making them almost impossible to put on. I've heard some of you talk about nail polish thinners before...can anyone point me in the direction of a good one?

i narrowed my choices down to 7, then down to 3, then i finally settled on zoya neeka. this isn't the greatest picture in the world, but it's a pretty smoky purple with some metallic flecks in there.
