brownieee

Ok, I admit, this is totally dumb BUT--one of my favorite things about the changing of the seasons is an excuse to buy new nail polish. Hey I mean, there's certainly bigger seasonal splurges I could (and, possibly, should) be making...

My collection is in a pretty sorry state at the moment, and I just know that all those robin's eggs and corals and delicate peaches of summer wont seem right under a cloudy October sky. As much as I'd love to outfit myself in some Khakis, odds are that ain't happening! So I'm looking instead to the Essie Fall collection. My favorite, hands down (ha!) is Little Brown dress, above. So rich! So moist! So choclatey. Eheheh. Mmmmm, lacquer.....


P.S. I made those brownies for my bf's birthday this year and they are the BEST. Ever. Put them in the fridge over night and they taste like fudge the next morning. (Just don't over beat, don't overbake, and good gawd DON'T bother with that stupid frosting...)

I don't know why but I don't wear nailpolish a lot but I do love it when I see it at someone else! I think I'm gonna buy some colours today..
Your brownie look delicious!

I kind of love it when nail polish makes your fingernails look like food! I just got Essie's Mink Muffs, which makes me think of dipping my fingers in lattes. YUM.

Great comparison there! I always love to use shades which go with the seasons e.g darker colours for winter.

Ringo, have a banana! said...

Nah, I didn't take the first one--I wish! It's from one of those nail polish enthusiast websites, Polish or Perish. My camera would have run away crying if I'd tried to take that heh.

I agree, the frosting is a terrible idea! It really takes away from the gooey chocolatey-ness. That nailpolish looks like you have chocolate syrup all over your nails...and that's not a bad thing
