Manicure Monday

Let's get the elephant out of the room, shall we? I have a new look on the blog, AGAIN! My banner was messed up for about a week and a half, and I was getting bored with my design and felt like Royally Pink needed a face lift.

This is a temporary design purchased from The Blog Shop on Etsy. She has pre-made blog templates so it's perfect in a pinch! I will be trying to find a blog designer to make Royally Pink a custom design, but in the meantime, I'm kind of in love with the new layout!

What does everyone think?

Ok, so let's get into it!

The first Manicure Monday of the season and I couldn't be more excited. I always get to a point in the summer where I'm bored of bright nail colors and long for dark reds, browns, and plums.

Well, I found the best color to kick off fall and that is Smith & Cult's "Lovers Creep". I bought it when I went to the Birchbox Soho store last week but I had full intentions of purchasing it online as well.

Smith & Cult nail polishes have become my addiction and I only had light colors for spring & summer, so I knew I needed at least one dark color. Why not start the fall season with a bang and a deep, dark red?

The formula is just like the other Smith & Cult nail polishes. It goes on gorgeously, it's very smooth, and the chipping is a minimum. The photos I have are a little blah because I couldn't find my original photo so this is four day chipping. My nails have been really bad lately; they peel and are very weak which is why no nail polish is staying good.

My mom used this polish and her nails look like she just walked out of the nail salon, so it is a great polish.

This is such a good red --it's the color of red wine, it has the slightest hint of plum and it seems like the color of fall leaves.

This is a color that will be in constant rotation and I can't wait to get my hands on more fall colors. I'm eyeing up Bitter Buddhist & Stockholm Syndrome next :)

What's on your nails this manicure monday?
