New Year Nude Favorites

Variations of Blush may have been a more precise title for this post, but I was too proud of New Year Nude Favorites. I'm also quite proud of these photos--our loft doesn't see much sunlight, or else I'd try beauty and lifestyle posts more often, so I snapped these when we were at my parents' for the holiday. Result!

Three new nude favorites: 1 OPI Tiramisu for Two, or my perfect nude polish. Some pull too cool, others too warm, some are too light and others too dark. This is my perfect neutral. It's the shade the nail artist put on the set of acrylics that led me to quit my lifelong nail-biting habit. (So, this shade is also a miracle!) 2 OPI Dulce de Leche, a perfect neutral rose polish. It reminds me of my favorite ruffle blouse, featured here and here. 3 MAC Creme Cup, a neutral (notice a theme?) creamy pink lipstick.

One more day and then the long weekend! We're off to Portland, Maine this weekend (a trip I've been dreaming of for some time) where the weather forecast is cold but sunny. I'm so looking forward to more New England charm and history, beautiful sights, good food, and mostly wandering and exploring with A with the ease that a long weekend brings.
