Found some nail art that I could probably wear for an entire year and still be in love with it!
Not all of us are ambidextrous. I mean I can barely manage keeping within the lines using my dominant hand. When you do your own nails, it’s nice to have a polish that works with you. While I haven’t tired I Love Nail Polish just yet, I can’t help but think my nails would be a masterpiece using this lovely lacquer.
You see, design isn’t just about the way a fabric drapes or the twist of metal so a necklace lays perfectly across the collarbone. There’s a lot of designing that’s done with beauty products as well (and while wearing a lab coat which is much, much cooler). Designer Barbara S loves nail polish so much that she created her own formula. Looking at the photos above, I’d say it’s a winning formula… and time for a manicure!
Designer to Watch: I Love Nail Polish
I wish I thought of this before throwing out left over nail stickers!
Christmas Tree nail art - I love this idea but that looks like a lot of work!
The latest nail color collection by O.P.I. has caught my eye as I’m going to San Francisco for the first time in November. I can’t resist names like Haven’t the Foggiest, First Date at the Golden Gate, and It’s All San Andreas’s Fault (very crafty indeed). Has anyone see these in person?
Though Marc Jacobs recently said his favorite nail polish is clear, it seems that mani-mania is still going strong on the runway. Kate Spade’s theme at NYFW was “Places to Go, People To See”, nails were a statement accessory that blended perfectly with the 1950’s retro vibe.
For Honor’s spring 2014 fashion show, celeb manicurist Deborah Lippmann created nail art inspired by the shoes models wore down the runway.
Doesn’t seem like rocket science but at least it explains why we think our nail polish is dry when it really isn’t!
This is why I love Pinterest:
I have an important trip to LA in a week and have been purposely growing out my nails for it. Style is important in the entertainment industry. Last night I tore my pinky nail but was determined to save it. I found this tutorial just now but used tea bag paper instead of fabric. Worked like a charm!
Where My Peeps At?
What’s the point of accessorizing if you can’t have a little fun? You don’t have to wait for an Easter basket with a few of these Easter-inspired accessories!
Bit Of Sugar has replicated the marshmallow peep with clay (yay, vegan friendly!). In yellow, green, pink, blue or violet, pick one that’s your favorite flavor and enjoy all year round without fear of cavities.
Now you can wear your Peeps on a shirt without having to spill any of that delicious sugar on yourself.
These rings are made from real candy that’s coated in glitter and then sealed for preservation by the Miss Mercy shop on Etsy.
Then tie it all together with some Peep Me Pink nail lacquer.
That’s enough pastels for this New Yorker. I’m hoppin’ outta here.
Bumped into my friend Alexis Wolfer a few days ago and stared at her nails like a crazy person. Could they possibly be any sweeter? I think not! She frequents my favorite nail art salon in Los Angeles and was a handy reminder for me to make an appointment…
My new nail objective for the spring. And if you don’t read Alexis Wolfer’s The Beauty Bean, please check it out because it’s a great site!
