1.] Favorite new (tried) polish: Definitely Cult Nails Grunge! I haven't used it in a full manicure yet, but you can see it used a little in my Busy Spider-y Halloween mani. It's a shade I didn't know I had to have until I got it :)
2.] Favorite new (tried) indie: Probably the Pahlish Fall duo (see my swatches here) - The Dust Witch is such a brilliant fall-but-not-typical-fall glitter topper!

4.] Favorite new polish collection: Does the Cult Nails Midnight Masquerade count? I ask because it's already sold out so I feel a little bad being like LOOK AT THIS MAJESTIC TINY COLLECTION, but I'm clearly enthusiastic about it (and it should have been delivered today, yay!). I want to take this opportunity to say - hey polish people, let's keep doing these slightly smaller collections!! I love that it was three polishes and not 6 or 15 or 20 => totally justifiable and affordable purchase. Also hella pretty!
Favy new technique/tip: Probably the dry brush aged look that I had somehow missed? Like I dunno what I was doing when this glorious thing happened at Chalkboard Nails back in September, but I've been seeing it around recently ('twas a popular 'glam Halloween' thing) and I like it very much.
My favorite October post is almost all of them? I really enjoyed skittle week - like the denim nail art, and the two Halloween nail arts (dots and spiders) but in the end my favorite is probably the all Cult Nails skittle set pictured above. I just really liked the weird mix of colors and finishes :)
YOUR favey October post ('fave' as determined by page views) is my colorful dotty garland/stripey situation. While I liked this, have you SEEN the one that my friend Elizabeth did?! HER COLORS ARE SO DIVINE. I love her's 19393x more than mine!

- Post at relatively the same time for the rest of November (ha ha ha)
- Be more awesome at Instagram! I don't post there consistently enough, but I should
- Comment a little more frequently on other people's cool blog posts
I also changed the blog layout in October, which is always exciting for me personally, but I change it so often I don't really bother making too much of a big deal about it. My Mom always has strong opinions about it tho, which I enjoy chatting with her about :)
Now I'm curious, what were your favorite things about October?! Are you still all about pumpkin things, or have you moved onto the pepperminty things?
PS. Not sure why all of the words are in different fonts in this post?! It's driving me insane but is also too challenging for me to fix right now (not because it's hard, because it's time confusing and whyyyy)
I always enjoy reading 'favorite things' or 'wrap up' posts because it's so fun to see what other people like & get to know them a little bit better. If you'd like to see all of the 'My Favorite Things' posts, click here!
