September Untried Challenge: Week 2 Wrap-Up

Whew, another week has flown by! This weekend was amazing. My father got married and I had a lovely time with my family. The photographer was awesome and she got some great pinup/vintage shots of my sisters and I. Here's my sisters and me with my dad!

(apologies for the non-nail teaser photo, just sharing my joy! yay!)

It was an amazing experience - couldn't have asked for a better day with better people. 

Here I have Week 2 of the September Untried Challenge!

Monday: Barielle Lava Rock
I didn't realize when taking this picture that there were any bald spots. It didn't look like this to the naked eye! This was a beautiful vampy plum. Very fall! Two coats.

Wednesday: Barry M Mushroom
OMG. This was AMAZING and I absolutely loved it. The formula, the bottle, the brush, and the color - everything was perfection. A gorgeous, slightly greyed taupe. Two coats.

Friday: Chanel Vertigo
Such an awesome polish. So smoky and mysterious! Is it brown? Is it black? Is it purple? It's a smoky dark base with a gorgeous spark of red/gold shimmer. Two coats. Had to include more than one photo to show you the secret shimmer. None of my pictures do it ANY justice. My first Chanel purchase - and it definitely won't be my last!

Well, that was Week 2! Another awesome week of untrieds ahead!
Let me know what you've been wearing lately!



  1. Awesome vintage looking pic! Love it!

    1. Thanks so much! Our photographer was an old family friend, so we were comfortable cutting loose and having fun! Got a lot of great shots, I'm sure I'll post them on my blog soon! :)

  2. That photo is so cute! And Lava Rock looks like a cousin of EMiO there...really pretty!

    1. Actually, now that you say that, it does!

    2. It DEFINITELY does! That's why it's going up for swap! :D I love the formula/brush of EMiO a whole lot more.
