Apple-Picking Inspired Manicure!

What's that? Another Fall manicure?! Why, yes, because I just can't get enough of this season! This look was inspired by my recent trip to an orchard to pick apples. I had a ton of fun and I baked my first pie. Delicious! Read on for the list of colors I used.

Neutral-Toned Fall Dotticure + Tutorial
(Featured on Zoya!)

One of my favorite looks to do on my nails are dotticures, and it's no secret that I'm obsessed with Fall. Naturally, a neutral-toned dotticure was definitely in order. What I like about the dotting tool is that it's simple and fun to use. If you want to see how I achieved this manicure, read on for a tutorial. It's quick and painless, I promise!

Shameless plug: Dressed In Polish is featured on Zoya! The sweethearts at Zoya Nail Polish were gracious enough to share my tutorial and I couldn't be more excited. You can check it out on their blog. Now, let's get back to business.

Welcome to my blog!

Hello lovelies!

Welcome to my blog, Dressed In Polish! I've been into all things nail polish for about a year now, though I do remember always painting my nails as a teenager (a different color on each nail, of course.) Recently, it occurred to me that I love to write, I love to connect with other people who share my passions, and I love to paint my nails — so here we are! On Dressed In Polish, I plan to share my adventures in manicures, tutorials for some of my looks, occasional tips and favorite products that I use to care for my own nails, and whatever else pops into my brain.

In addition to the blog, you can connect with me in other ways: Follow me on Instagram, Like my Facebook page, Follow my Pinterest boards, Tweet me on Twitter, and Follow my Tumblr. Be sure to use hash tag #DressedInPolish on social media, if you'd like. You can also email me at

Well, that's about it! I look forward to connecting with all of you as I grow. Enjoy your time here. I'm excited!
