Jessica Cosmetics Going Places, Fall 2023

 Press Sample

I actually have not received a collection from Jessica Cosmetics in a while (according to my blog, Spring 2022) but then this randomly showed up mid-October. Of course, that was Ehmkay Nails Halloween month, so I did not swatch anything. Then November just zoomed by. Well, my nails are a wreck. I think it's the 60 degree then 30 degree days. I really wanted to wait to swatch these polishes but Mr. Ehmkay said no one wants to see a fall collection in December, swatch them now!

Zoya Amaris, November Color of the Month

Press Sample

This past summer, Zoya started up color of the month promotion. Lots of indies used to do that and I like it because it allows people and companies to be creative without dedicating time to an entire collection. I do not normally get press samples for the colors of the month, but this one just showed up in the mail. Thanks Zoya! You only have until the rest of the month to grab it so jump on it if you want it!
UPDATE 11/29: I realized I only posted matte photos. Whoops! I added the shiny photos into the post.

Thanksgiving Nail Art: Autumn Leaves with Gradient

Press Sample

Hello everyone! This will probably be my last autumn nail art, even though I really wanted to squeeze in a few more. Time just got away from me, and I know I keep saying that. In addition, As you can see, I have super shorties right now. It kind of makes me sad and I actually have one more fall collection to swatch but I am choosing not to because my nails are so short. Anyway, let's get to the art!

Special Autumn Nails for a Friend


I have been looking at this nail polish for just about a year. I really didn’t know when I wanted to wear it, but now just felt right. I put the changing of the leaves and the transition to the winter season as my inspiration for this nail art, as I think about a friend who is dearly missed.

Autumn Pumpkins Nail Art

Press Sample

Today’s inspiration comes from Tessalynn nails on Instagram. I like the simplicity of this look, and I have been in such a moody blue teal mood that I wanted to connect that with pumpkin imagery. After swatching 13 polishes, I was tired, and I wanted some quick art and so that is why I went for this.

Zoya Enamored, Fall 2023

Press Sample

Listen, I know that this collection has been around since September but October is always dedicated to Halloween so I never really post Zoya fall before November. In addition, they always have amazing Black Friday sales so I feel like I am doing you a favor by holding off by showing these later so that you can get a good sale. OK let’s get into the swatches and hopefully I’ll be back with holiday before the actual winter holidays. Lol, I want to remind you that it is still fall so I am not late.
