Three Nail Colors for Fall

It’s very rare to find me without nail polish on. Not only do I love the look of it, but I actually enjoy the process of applying it. At my peak, I can do it up to 3 times a week! While I’ll occasionally venture for a royal blue or a electric purple, I’m most often in some sort of neutral color (surprising, I know). And, as with nearly everything else in my life, I tend to go for the same colors over and over again.
There are three different colors that I’m loving for Fall right now — near black, a warm mauve-purple, and a creamy neutral. I most often rotate through the near black and cream neutral, but like to have a color in the rotation to change things up a bit.
My favorite near black colors are OPI Lincoln Park After Dark (shown above) and Essie Gel Couture Hang Up The Heels. For mauve-purple colors, I like Essie Gel Couture in Touch Up (shown below) and OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender. My arsenal of neutrals is pretty expansive, but my repeat offenders are OPI Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around (shown above) and Taupe-less Beach.

    Hello everyone in this forum, I am Jane Robin from palm Harbor Florida 34682. USA and want to use this medium to express gratitude to UP START LOAN for fulfilling their promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never with success, and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Mary Williams to UP START LOAN whom also confirmed to me that she also obtained a loan from them. In an attempt to resolve my current situation, i got in contact with the company via email and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Mary, i was also granted a loan of $80,000.00; So my advise to everyone who or know someone who desires a loan, if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact UP START LOAN. Besides, he doesn’t know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on ( ) or Text/Call +1(574) 301-1639 And share your own awesome experience.
