Fall Fashionista

"Mom, fall is the best time of year," my daughter announced.

"I like fall, too," I said.  "The leaves look so pretty on the trees, and the air has a different smell."

"Yeah, but do you know why I really like fall?"

"Why?" I asked.

"Because of fall fashion! There are new clothes, new shoes, new makeup, and new nail polish colors!"

I looked at the girl.  "Do you really need more nail polish?"

She grinned.

I walked to her room to find out exactly how much nail polish she had.  Do you know how many bottles were lying around?  Twenty-six!

"Girl," I said.  "This is ridiculous!  You absolutely do not need more nail polish!"

"But Mom," she objected.  "Those are spring and summer colors.  I need fall colors!" 

Of course.

    1. I guess if I polished my nails, I'd have that many, too! (I don't, because my nails have to be kept short for playing the violin, and to fuss with nail polish would be a major nuisance.)

    1. Yes, she is! She likes to go to the local drug store to see the new shades.

  3. My daughter (older than yours) would agree. She has a nail blog and constantly swaps colours. I think she has hundreds, but I'm not sure.

    I'm not a nail person, having an art background, my nails never were in good shape. They were full of charcoal, printer's ink, etc. I do like the amazing array of colours and lovely designs my two daughters create.

    1. I bet your daughter has really pretty nails! I've seen some of the neat things they do to paint them.

  4. You do need to be seasonally correct.

    I have to admit to loving fall and winter clothes. It's a curse that I now live in a place with no fall or winter.

  5. I've always admired girls/women who pull off different shades. 26 is a lot but I'm sure it's fun to match them with clothes and the season. I keep mine short and color free because whichever color I put, I'm sure there'll be lead/ pencil smudges all over my nails at the end of each day.:)

    1. I keep my finger nails color-free. It's too much of a hassle to keep them short for playing the violin/viola and maintain the nail polish.

    1. You're welcome for the comment. I'm not sure I've heard the song Forever Autumn. Maybe I have, and I just don't recognize the title.

    1. Fall is my favorite season. I think for a girl who's twelve years old, that's a little excessive!

    1. Yes it is - more than I own! I think I have a grand total of two bottles! (If I need a different shade, I just ask to borrow one from my daughter!)

  13. She is smart -- that daughter of yours.

    I just saw my neighbors in their fall colors too. It seems as though I'm the only one left wearing summer colors. I think I'll change it today.
