New York Fashion Week: Creatures Of The Wind Fall/Winter 2014

Creatures of the Wind has such a cool modern boho vibe, and the brand’s NYFW Autumn/Winter 2014 showing echoed that spirit with dramatic braids, electric blue eyeliner, and mod nail art that we just love! “The collection this season is about transcendence- moving from the earthly realm into the light,”  NARS Director of Global Artistry, James Boehmer, explained […]

Manicure Monday: Mad About Plaid

Manicure Monday: Mad About Plaid

There’s nail art, and then there’s nail art. It can be as simple or as complex as you make it.  You can do a simple French manicure or you can create a complicated design.  This week’s manicure? It’s pretty complicated – but that didn’t stop me from trying to tackle it.  If you’re patient enough (and […]

Manicure Monday: Little Mermaid

Manicure Monday: Little Mermaid

For Halloween this year, my team at work went as hipster Disney princesses, and I was a hipster Little Mermaid. I went all out with my costume – long red wig, suspenders, boots, thick glasses, fork … I mean, dinglehopper – and all I needed was the perfect manicure to go with it! I decided […]

Manicure Monday: NYFW

Manicure Monday: NYFW

We’re all in a current state of Fashion Week frenzy.  While fall fashions are exploding in stores, spring fashions are gracing the runways in New York, Milan, and Paris.  Naturally, I get most excited about new trends in beauty, but I was honestly a little disappointed by the nail art I’ve seen from Fashion Week.

Manicure Monday: Acid Wash

Manicure Monday: Acid Wash

Sometimes the coolest manicures require little to no skill – and this manicure is one of them.  No precision, but all the impact.  Acid-washed jeans are kind of like those manicures.  They don’t take precision to create, but they definitely make a statement.  Acid-wash jeans exploded into the style scene in the late 80’s/early 90’s […]

Manicure Monday: Valentine’s Day Heart

When I sat down to do my Valentine’s Day-themed Manicure Monday, I had big ideas to do a different pattern on every nail.  Glitter, hearts, polka dots, flowers, matte polish, everything. I started to do the manicure, and I realized that my nails started to look like a tacky Valentine’s Day card. Obviously that’s not […]

Manicure Monday: Art Deco

Manicure Monday: Art Deco

With fall in full swing – when the weather is cooperating – it’s time to transition to autumn-inspired beauty looks.  Darker hues and deep metallics are big trends for this season, but it can be hard to leave the bright, fun manicures of last season behind. I created this week’s Manicure Monday to combine summer’s […]

Butter London Limited Edition Heavy Medals Collection

So the Olympics are in full swing and you haven’t left the couch for days. We get it. Collaboreight editors have been glued to the TV since the opening ceremony, but somehow bronze, silver, and gold seem right at our fingertips. (See what I did there?) If the closest I’ll ever get to an Olympic […]
