 After School Boy Blazer :: Swing Velvet :: Recessionista :: Penny Talk

In the summer I relied on my tried & true Mod Square from Essie with occasionally tossing in pleasantly purple Play Date into the mix. Now that autumn is here, I’m adding the rich tones of my wardrobe to my manicure.

Normally I shy away from dark nail colors but After School Boy Blazer more than piqued my interest. Love my J.Crew boy blazer in my closet, I can definitely love boy blazer on my nails.

Swing Velvet & Recessionista are perfect complements to my overall maroon, beige, caramel and cream fall color palette. I hate to play favorites but Recessionista, it’s you.

The metallic Penny Talk can brighten up a monotone ensemble of neutrals instantly. I can’t wait to pair this hue with a black work dress and a fun pair of heels.

  2. PennyTalk is my favorite! I have it on my toes right now!
