New York Fashion Week: 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall/Winter 2014

Amped-up natural beauty with a kick of exaggerated edge was the beauty look that accompanied 3.1 Phillip Lim‘s graphic and geomerical Fall/Winter 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week. “It’s time to ‘rock the casbah’ this fall. A bold, angled brow, clean eyelids and slightly sculpted cheeks give a bit of new wave punk inspiration,” lead NARS […]

Manicure Monday: On the Dot

Manicure Monday: On the Dot

As I’m sure you all know by now, I can’t get enough of nail art.  I’m always looking for new ideas, techniques, and styles.  Admittedly, when there isn’t a holiday or big event going on, sometimes it can be hard to think of new, creative nail art ideas.  Enter Nail Art Society. I recently signed […]

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: Silver Details

Manicure Monday: Silver Details

Manicures are a great way to express your feelings and personality without being in-your-face – unless, of course, you take a ton of photos and post all about your nails in a blog online, then maybe it’s in-your-face.

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: Faux Diamonds

Manicure Monday: Faux Diamonds

I am absolutely in love with the idea of gems, lace, and other things to bedazzle your manicure.  I’m not quite as in love with anything that will make my manicure 3D.  If my nails aren’t totally smooth, I find that my nails snag on my hair way too often.  So as much as I […]

Manicure Monday: Shark Week

Manicure Monday: Shark Week

I have to admit, when I sat down to start this manicure, Shark Week was the last thing on my mind.  In fact, I really don’t even like Shark Week – and I definitely don’t like sharks.  My goal was to sit down and create a DIY chalkboard nail art tutorial – but after a conversation about […]
