Fall Nail Trends: A Collab with SmileChiquita

Oh my goodness! Can you believe its already November?!  Thanksgiving is almost around the corner! Am I the only one that thinks that the year FLEW by?!

Along with all the things that make fall & winter the wonderful seasons that they are, it also means that new colors are being incorporated in our outfits, home d├ęcor, and beauty routines. I’m not just talking about vampy lips & dark smoky eyes; we also put away our bright pinks & summery polishes for deeper variations of our go-to mani/pedi colors.

In magazines this season I’ve been seeing a variety of reds & berries, blues & greens, metallics, and glitters!

* TIP: It would be a good idea to invest in some nail whitener for when you wear the darker colors since it sometimes causes nail discoloring & some really good nail polish remover for when you’re going to remove the glitter polish. * 

Healthy hand habits are always in season and they are important to extend the wear of your manicure. In the fall/winter months you NEED to keep your hands and cuticlesmoisturized! The colder months can take a toll on your hands, especially if you don’t wear gloves. I am guilty of this and this season I’m serious investing in some cute gloves! ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS have a mini hand cream in your purse or school bag, they are super cheap and are a lifesaver during these cold months.

Don’t think you could pull off darker, bolder nail polishes? YOU CAN! All you need is a little bit of confidence!

*PS ! I’m so EXCITED to be doing my first collab post with fashion bloggerSmileChiquta! We go WAY back and I don’t mean a couple of years, like I’ve known her since the 3rd grade!  Definitely check out her blog & get a glimpse of her concrete runway :)
If you are going to try any of the colors or want to show us how you wear your nails this fall/winter use #theamandadiaries & #smilechiquita!
