Birthday Week Countdown

I decided this year that since Mr. Potts was turning 35 that I wouldn't make a HUGE deal out of my birthday. Which for me, is highly abnormal.

For Mr. Potts, though, it has been worth it.

The one thing that I want to do this week for my birthday is get a manicure.

I'm really loving the brown trend for this fall, so I may start with something like this with a little lighter with a color named Au Natural. Described as a Soft, Sandy Beige with Light Shimmer.



Moving a little further into fall, I may go with Downtown Brown from the creme collection.

Or perhaps Chocolate Kisses, also from the creme collection.

I think the one that may turn out to be my fave will be Decadent Diva, described as a Rich, Shimmering Cocoa.

Any colors out there you're looking forward to trying? Any recommendations for a chocolate'ish or "greige" polish?

Ooh, those are sooo pretty! I have an old-school Garden Bontanika chocolateish nail polish I wore last week...it screams fall and looks so classy! Do show pictures of your birthday mani when it's all said and polished!

XOXO

Essie's Playa del Platinum is a nice grayish transition from summer to fall...in my opinion. ;)

Happy, happy birthday!!

Nooo!! Stop all this fall talk! I am not ready for fall! :)
I FINALLY have long(er) nails...and I have been so excited to use some paint on them! It must be the hormones or something because I have always had short brittle soft nails! I like all the pics, but I think i am drawn to the darker ones!

Love these colors. I'm a huge fan of Essie's "Wicked". If you really want to splurge, go for Chanel's "Vamp". I've been using it since HS but Wicked's a close match.
