My Favorite Things: October

I always enjoy reading 'favorite things' or 'wrap up' posts because it's so fun to see what other people like and get to know them a little bit better. So I thought I'd do a little list of some of my favorite items from October! Once, a long long time ago, I created my own little blogger planner with little pages to fill out and these are all the questions I wrote for myself.

favorite new (tried) polish: Sally Hansen Firefly, which is near impossible to photograph without it looking awful! It has such a pretty color shift and it twas a gift (d'aww, thanks BF).

favorite new (UNtried) polish: is a toss up between Nails Inc. Baker Street and RBL Scrangie

favorite new (tried) indie polish: Candy Lacquer's Queen Chrysalis! It is such an awesome blend of colors and shapes. I liked in the bottle but zomg, it is so fun on the nail, too. And to think I almost didn't order it!

favorite new polish collection: My two favorite collections that came out in October were probably fall indie collections. Why? Because I'm not feeling the pressure/extreme need to grab all the typical brand collections right now since I have a fairly large collection already. But the limited edition indie Halloween polishes make me squeal with delight!

manicure I did: the Bewitching skittles on top of Lacquistry's Witches Warts on top of my zombie-inspired gradient!

new technique: Whitney from Dressed Up Nails did an awesome jewel-toned mosaic mani that I love! I really need to get on doing one similar because it's so cool!

favorite new makeup item: Urban Decay Dangerous palette! Check out my eye look here.

favorite TV show to watch while blogging: Lately I've been on a Supernatural kick via Netflix while blogging because it's pretty easy to flip on and not have to watch the entire show. The boys in it are cute (yay!) and there's some cool demon stuff (yay!) but it's not overly complex because there's usually one main, simple plot per season with individualized stories per episode. I also enjoy a lot of other, similarly paced shows from the CW like this season's new show Beauty & the Beast. I really like a lot of fantasy and crime stuff in general (Dexter, Criminal Minds, etc.)

book: Currently reading and enjoying The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larson while taking a break from reading A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin. A Dance with Dragons is the 5th book in the Song of Ice and Fire series, and it's the last one published so I don't want to read it all too soon.

And there you go! What were your favorites this month?! Feel free to comment with your list!
