I had the amazing good fortune to grow up in a small town in the heart of wine country. It's funny, I thought about doing a skittle with redwoods and my high school and a starry sky (I really miss the stars, living in a big city). I think I tend to have momentum--I did a skittle for the last challenge, so I think I need another one. I'm glad I didn't though, because I like how this is simple.

*2 coats OPI Every Month Is Oktoberfest
*3 coats China Glaze Cowardly Lyin'
*1 coat Out The Door
I used Every Month Is Oktoberfest for this one. Perfection! This polish is simply stunning. It is a perfect deep purple for wine and grapes. I NEVER get tired of this shimmer, either!
I was going to use my go-to Fast Track for my accent, but decided to use Cowardly Lyin' instead. This is a very sheer shimmery gold with small glitter pieces in it. I wanted something white wine-ish for the grapes' background. Close enough to champagne, don't you think? I used Oktoberfest to dot on grapes and then painted on Yara as the vine. Now, you are in for a very special treat (sort of). Meet my right hand:
I snapped that one on a whim, which is why the sides of my nails are a mess. I liked how the grapes looked much better on this hand, and wanted to show them off. Something funny happened when I did this. I knew I would have a hard time snapping a picture with my left hand, and it was really awkward. I did not think, however, that it would be hard to pose my right hand! I am so used to posing my left, that I couldn't really hold the bottle well or move my hand right--so weird! So, forgive the mess, but I liked that little bunch a lot. For better or worse, I love my home so much and am proud of it. I'm so happy that this one turned out so well!
