I <3 my plaid nails!!! I think I'm getting better with my stripers, too! The base is China Glaze "Recycle" which is a perfect medium grey creme, IMHO.
I even tried wearing sweatpants and a long-sleeved shirt this morning to really make it feel like Fall, but it's gotten so hot that I've changed into shorts & a tank top :-(. Well, at least it's not over 100 degrees today.
