Hi there everyone! The leaves are finally changing here in Kentucky and that prompted me to make some reverse stamping decals. Of course, I had to use my Pahlish polishes that I reviewed in the last post. For the leaves I used “Ghost of Granny Smith,” “Candy Corn on the Cob,” “Scarves and Sweaters,” and Born Pretty BPL-026 stamping plate. I also used Born Pretty Store black stamping polish.
All of the polishes I mentioned in my post are available in Pahlish’s shop for purchase. Thanks for reading today, and I’ll talk to you soon!!!

Hi there everyone! Just thought I’d pop in to share what’s been on my nails the past couple of days! The base color is Essie Virgin Snow, and then I hand painted the rest. Also, I wanted to mention that I do have an Instagram account again. My name on there is @nailsbylatoya06. Be sure to follow me on there, as I will have some giveaways coming up that you all don’t want to miss out on! Alright, enough rambling, on to the pictures!
Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!

Hi there everyone! This time of year is my favorite time of year. The leaves are changing, it’s cooling down from the summer heat, and all of the pretty fall/winter collections come out. As soon as I saw the colors from Essie’s press release and the cute names of the polishes, I knew I had to have this collection! The whole collection is inspired by Tokyo, Japan. On to the pictures!!!🙂
First up we have Kimono-over. Essie describes this as a damson Plum. I used two coats, but it was nearly a one-coater. No top coat on top either in this picture! It has super high gloss shine.
Here’s Shine of the Times over Kimono-over. Look at that flakie shift!!! Yummy!
Next up is Maki Me Happy. Essie describes this as a crimson-wrapped berry, and I have to agree with that! I used two coats for the photo and no top coat. All of these polishes have high gloss shine.
Now and Zen is described as a Sage Gray by Essie’s website. I’m a sucker for grays and this one is no exception! There is a slight tint of green to it as well. I’m not sure if my camera picked up on that though. Two coats and one coat of top coat.
Go Go Geisha is described as an antique blossom pink. This color is such a pretty neutral, but I don’t think it works too well with my skintone. I used two coats and one coat of top coat.
Udon Know Me is described as a mysterious stony blue. Such a pretty shade although it seems more green to me. I used two coats and one coat of top coat for the picture.
And last but not least is Playing Koi. Essie describes this as an orange rust. I think this color is my pick from the whole collection. I have nothing like it in my whole Essie collection… Or my whole collection for that matter. Perfect for fall, and makes me think of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I used two coats plus top coat for the picture.
Well, there you have it! Which colors were your favorites? If I could only pick three, mine would be Playing Koi, Maki Me Happy, and Kimono-over. Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!
