sidda wears polish: "Cocktail Dress," by Ciate Paint Pots.

I wore this very polish on the day that Justin & I got engaged. For that reason, I felt it was fitting to pull it back out & paint it on for our one-year anniversary trip to Charleston. 

What I learned this time around: I'm painting my coats way too gloppy & thick, which makes them bubble up & look horrible. Will be working on thinner, cleaner coats next time around. I also need to invest in a topcoat. I do love this color though, especially for Fall.

sidda wears polish: Fall 2013 Nail Polish Picks.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons. The chill in the air, the pumpkins popping up on doorsteps, the creepiness of Halloween... I could go on & on about why I love this season. But, shifting into beauty gear, one of the top reasons I love Fall is the influx of what I consider some of the prettiest nail polishes. I love deep nail colors, & all Spring & Summer I find myself holding back from wearing dark, sparkly hues. When the Fall Equinox finally rolls around, I always comb through my nail polish collection & pull out the polishes I've been pining for. I've listed out my Fall selections for you today, as well as including the video I recently uploaded to YouTube, which explains them in a bit more detail.

1. "Plum," by e.l.f
2. "Scandal," by Pure Ice
4. "Grey Area," by Sally Hansen
5. "Merino Cool," by Essie
6. "Nirvana," by Sinful Colors
7. "Leap Flog," by Sinful Colors
8. "Spanish Moss," by Revlon
9. "Cocktail Dress," by Ciate
11. "Sand Tropez," by Essie
12. "Shay," by Zoya

What polishes are you loving for Fall? And which ones should I add to my wish list?

sidda wears polish: "Gogo Girl," by Sinful Colors.

When I was choosing my polish for this week,
I thought, "why not classic red?"
Sometimes simplicity is everything.

sidda wears polish: "I Don't Drink Cheap Wine," by Wet 'n Wild's Spoiled line.

Recently I pulled out my dark nail polish collection, as a nod to the finally-arrived Fall season.
As I painted each finger a different color to test them out, my heart became set on one particular hue.
You guessed it: "I Don't Drink Cheap Wine," by Wet 'n Wild's Spoiled line.
This rich, shimmery cranberry color has me feeling chic & ready to pull those cozy sweaters over my head.

Editor's Note: Hopefully doing these posts weekly will spiff up my nail-painting [as well as nail-photographing] abilities.

about sidda wears.

hi, i'm lauren. 100% dorky.

In the spirit of transparency, you should know: I am not a fashion blogger. However, since I am in the process of reconstructing my wardrobe this year, I started craving a space to share with you any outfits that do feel boast-worthy. Similarly, I look forward to sharing any makeup combos that strike me as blog material, as well as a photo & descriptive blurb centering around my weekly nail polish change.

With the rebirth of my YouTube channel, I thought it'd be neat to have a blog that can correspond to the content I post in my videos. That's what you can expect here on Sidda Wears, plus a little more.
