I got my fringe back. There is something about fall that just makes me want bangs. I cannot resist.
Sephora describes this color as a russet brown. I call foul. I think "russet," by definition, means a warm, reddish brown. This color is literally the exact opposite of that: it's a cool, greenish brown. It's a brown that's so green that it almost looks olive. But not quite! It's still brown. And I have to say, I'm pretty taken with it. It's an interesting neutral, that's for sure. And it definitely fits the season. This is only the second Formula X polish I've tried. I was whelmed by my first one, but I had a much more pleasant experience with Anomaly. The formula was really, really nice. I used two coats. I've been wearing it for a day now and I don't have any tipwear or chips to report, so I would say I'm pleased. I'm trying to think of a color I have that could dupe this or come close to it. Oh, you know what? I bet it has some similarities to A-Taupe the Space Needle, which is absolutely one of my very favorite nail polishes ever (but I'd have to do a comparison to see). Okay, that explains why I dig Anomaly so much--and I just realized it as I was typing this out. I guess this polish isn't...an anomaly? Ha. Ha.
Last Sunday I took a drive down to Apple Valley to the lake house. Partially--mostly, actually--to spend time with my parents, but partially because I wanted to do some classic Ohio October leaf peeping. The foliage (and the weather in northeast Ohio on Sunday) did not disappoint.
we went on what I think was probably the last boat ride of the season when I got down there. The sky was a lot grayer in central Ohio. A plastic cup of wine and a blanket and I was happy.
This happened on my way home. It happens all the time when I'm driving to or from Apple Valley, but this time it was while the buggy was going up a huge hill so I literally could not pass it safely. I took the opportunity to snap a picture because I was behind it for A WHILE.
Okay, I will be back with a post for you tomorrow, too! Lucky you, right? But before I go...
This little grump.
