according to michael kors’ 2016 fall catalog, the colors plum and moss/hunter green are in this season. well, i wasn’t ready to splurge on a fabulous handbag or garment (at least not just yet), but i figured i could get creative with how i incorporate these colors into my fall look.
yesterday i was out and about running errands, including a quick stop into ulta for some must-haves and want-to-haves. i made my way to the nail care area and did a couple laps around the shelves. the lovely thing about nail polish is that it comes in nearly any shade of the rainbow you can imagine. this undeniable fact had me hopeful that i’d find just the shade i was seeking. to no one’s surprise, there aren’t nearly as many green shades of polish as you might find pinks as reds, but i did at least find what i wanted: a hunter green called front runner by opi. when i first brushed it on my nails, it almost appeared blue-green. but in the right light, it’s the excellent fall green i was wanting, especially out in the natural sun.
now that i had my deep green fix, i enlisted the help of an employee to find a plum lipstick. she showed me several samples, some too dark and others too pink. we finally came upon, though, the one i would take home with me: buxom’s matte big & sexy bold gel lipstick in vampy plum. the matte is ultra chic, i think, and the color is very sensual against my rather light complexion. i’m in love with this stuff already! oh, and did i mention that the lipstick case is magnetic? when i put the cap back on and realized it, i swear i died and went to makeup heaven.
