#ManiMonday, September 28

Ahh, the first Monday of the Fall season. Since it is now officially autumn, I have dove into everything and anything that is pumpkin spice or apple pie scented/flavored; lotions and sprays included. In honor of this great pumpkin season and everything warm, cozy, and orange, I did a lovely orange, glitter gradient manicure.

Let me first talk about the Dahlia Orange by Jolie Polish. Oh my God, it is a one coat wonder and a gorgeous one at that. I originally bought this as a part of Bory’s mini stamping polish collection. They are great stamping polishes, but I wasn’t expecting this. Dahlia Orange is a beautiful warm orange that is perfect for the fall. Over it, I layered Philly Loves Lacquer’s Sakura Sunday on the tips and did a (sort of) gradient. I think it adds just the right amount of shimmer, peach, and red to make this the a great fall mani.
