Manicure Monday: Christmas Trees

Merry Christmas Eve to all of our readers who celebrate! Of course we couldn’t let a Manicure Monday on Christmas Eve pass by without creating a Christmas-themed manicure! Today, using a little bit of tape and glitter, we’ve created a Christmas tree manicure! I love this look because it’s actually way easier than it looks […]

Manicure Monday: Neon Brights

Happy Manicure Monday, beauty lovers! I wanted today’s manicure to be fun and different.  Something that looks difficult, but really isn’t.  You can’t get a complicated-looking manicure using only one color (I don’t think!), so the key to this mani is using a lot of bright colors that stand out against each other.  Love this […]

Manicure Monday: Inspired by Color

Manicure Monday: Inspired by Color

As much as I love looking for inspiration on Pinterest, I know that I’m limited in terms of nail art by what I can actually do and what tools I have at home.  It’s more important for me to have a simple-yet-neat design than an intricate-but-possibly-sloppy design.  Sometimes when I’m trying to figure out what […]

Manicure Monday: Sweet Floral

Happy Manicure Monday! After a great holiday weekend, I’m feeling flirty and floral today.  I decided to try to take the difficulty level of my manis up a notch this week – but don’t worry, they’re still totally DIYable.  Just like my leopard print manicure, the best part about this nail art is that it doesn’t […]

The Fashion Coloring Book

I can be heard shrieking about a designer’s new collection within minutes of entering a Bloomingdale’s. How can I instantly recognize the new Alice + Olivia, Marc Jacobs, and Diane Von Furstenberg collections?  Silhouettes, fabrics, and patterns! If you have always wanted to give designing a try (but, like me, have none of that pesky […]
