Twinsie Tuesday: Transition from Summer to Fall

Mornin'!  As much as I love Summer, I am a huge Fall fan- it's my favorite season. I grew up in New England, and Fall always makes me think of the crazy foliage up there. I've got all my apple-cinnamon-pumpkin-leaf scented candles ready to go. I'm ready for a Pumpkin Spice Latte, apple picking, and a visit to the pumpkin patch. If I can top this off with a trip to a state fair (I highly recommend "The Big E" in Massachusetts) I will be in heaven. (Side note: If you make it to the Big E, stop by the "Vermont" building and pick yourself up some real maple candy- you will thank me, I assure you).

So today's Twinsie theme is a polish that will "Transition from Summer to Fall". I like just diving right in, and ripping that bandaid off. I'm going FULL FALL and wearing Julep Candace, a deep dark brown with KILLER gold shimmer.

I mean, c'mon- this is great! I used 2 layers of polish here- the formula was on the thick side, but easy to work with:

I got this color in my September Julep Maven box. It's been awhile since I 'opted in' and got my monthly box, and this box did not disappoint. (Full post on that to follow) If you are interested in becoming a Maven, you can use my referral link here and enter the code "FREEBOX" to get your first month's box free. Yes, free. If you don't love it, you always have the option of skipping your next month (you will not be charged unless you choose to receive your box that month) and you can also cancel your membership at any time. (Disclosure: I earn Julep points for each friend I refer). A typical box includes 2 polishes, a beauty product (I got a facial cleanser this month that looks awesome!) and usually something else thrown in.
