Top Three Tuesday

If you're like me, you love to paint your nails and never let them go undone. Well I've fallen in love with these darker colors for fall (shown below). I also recently tried a red polish by Sephora's new nail polish "Formula X for Sephora" and I have to say I was not impressed with its watery texture and the brush quality, so I honestly would not recommend you invest in the brands nail polish.
