Confessions of a Product Junkie {vampy lips & nails}

One of the trends for fall is definitely the vampy lip.  I saw a lipstick way back in August, that fits that trend, and I haven't been able to get it out of my mind.  After seeing an article on the vampy lip in a recent edition of In Style magazine, I made a stop at the makeup counter yesterday to purchase that lipstick I've been coveting.

Here's a page from that In Style article, so you can see what the vampy lip looks like...
The lipstick I purchased, was called "Bruised Plum" by Tom Ford. 
Here's how it looks on my skin
I bought a lip gloss in "Natural" to go over it.  It softens it a little.
I have long been on the vampy nails bandwagon. Here are three of my favorites for achieving that look...
None of these are new to me, but they are totally trendy for this year.
OPI "Oh...To Be 25 Again!", butter London "La Moss", and OPI "Lincoln Park After Dark"

{La Moss was used on the models in several shows during NY Fashion week}
Here's how they look on my fingers {again, same colors from left to right}
and in a different light
So take a leap with me, and try out some vampy shades for Fall. 
I think it is such a sophisticated look, and an easy way to shake things up.
