My Favorite Things: Festive Nails

It's not an understatement to say I'm addicted to nail polish. My personal collection is impressive(ly alarming). As much as I love getting my nails done at my favorite salon by my favorite girl (shout out to Mindy!), I can't realistically get a manicure every week (yet...). So, I got pretty decent at doing my own nails.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I document my #notd (nails of the day) semi-regularly. I'll show you some of my favorites later, but first let's look at pretty colors! If you want to see a lot more nail polishes and nail art that I love, check out my Pinterest board that's devoted solely to nails (that's normal, right?). Here's a sampling of some of my faves.

Important note: I took these nail polish pictures from Pinterest and I claim no ownership of them.

I've been really into deep red shades recently, but I surprisingly don't own many myself. I found one recently that I wasn't impressed by, and I found a berry color on my successful shopping journey a couple months ago, but it's not as deeply red as these Pinterest finds.
