September favorites and haul

Hello my lovelies! What can I say about September? This month has been a roller coaster for me and it definitely flew by. I was away, I worked a lot and exercised a lot. The weather has been warm for weeks, which is what I love. One of the best things about this month was the fact that I managed to do a lot of nail art. It's been the month of gradients because I just couldn't get enough of them. That's why most of my favorites include a gradient of some sort. I had a lot of options but ended up with these 4 manicures. Take a look!

First up we have my very first scaled gradient. It's a technique that steals a lot of your time but I think it's totally worth it in the end. Another time consuming technique is the reciprocal gradient on the top right. But isn't it amazing? The chevrons on the bottom left were stamped over a sparkly duochrome gradient base. Finally, my interpretation for the plaid trend that's going around this fall. Which one is your favorite?

Believe it or not, I didn't buy a single polish this month. Everything I acquired was through my lovely friend Kinga. First she had a blog sale and I snagged a few of her beauties.

Then she went on vacation and brought me all these amazing polishes. I really can't thank her enough. I love them!

That's it for September! I hope the month of October will be sunny or at least warm. I can't emphasize enough how much I hate the cold. See you in October!
