So. I had some great weekend plans in place: seeing some shows, a friend’s surprise birthday party, and a lecture series. And then…

Friday morning I wasn’t feeling so hot. Turns out I have strep. There goes the weekend. To say I was bummed out is the understatement of the century.

Before the weekend that didn’t happen, I had painted my nails a gorgeous dark oxblood color to get in the almost-Thanksgiving/deep fall mood.

I decided to cut my nails short because the color, Recessionista by Essie, was so intense. I know long dark nails are on trend right now, but I personally find them a little witchy for my taste. Here is the end result:

How was everyone else’s weekend? What nail colors do you like to get in the mood for fall?
