Sheer Perfection!

18 Jul

Let me start by saying that I love all things pink.  I love any and every shade of the pretty color but I’m partial to blush.  Blush pink is so soft and feminine, looks great on all skin tones, and goes with everything…..which led me to a year-long search for the prettiest sheer pink nail polishes. By sheer I mean that they’re almost like a clear polish with a slight pink tint to them.

I’ve tried so many pinks along the way and have narrowed it down to my favorite 3 that I’m going to share with you today.  The colors below are perfect for year round wear, but I especially love wearing them in the Summer. Also these beautiful understated hues are perfect for your wedding day.

Starting with the sheerest of them all,  Essie Sugar Daddy is like your nails, only better. This color looks like you have really healthy nails- think nude with a hint of pink.

Next up, a slightly pinker -but still not too pink color is Essie Mademoiselle. It is sheer just like Sugar daddy but can build (2-3 coats) to a pretty milky pink.

Lastly, this super shiny pink(slightly more pink than the others)  is OPI Passion. This color is similar to the others and can be built up just like mademoiselle can be. It’s the shiniest and longest wearing of the three as well.

Note: All three colors can be built up but remain sheer.

Lilac Nails A Summer Must!

25 May

I’m so in love with lilac nails lately!  The pale purple shades looks great on all skin tones and is so feminine. Lilac is a nice way to incorporate some purple into your wardrobe without going into dark grape territory. Ranging from pale pinkish hues to deeper greyish hues, there is a lilac for everyone. What lilac shade works for you?

Find Your Nude!

19 Mar

If you’ve read my What Do I Wear With That? section featured on this blog, then you already know that I feel every woman needs a nude heel- A wedge or flat always work too.  Nude shoes literally match EVERYTHING, When I can’t find a shoe to match my ensemble, I always turn to my nude shoes to pull the outfit together. It’s practically like your barefoot and they elongate the legs as well which is a plus. With that being said I think it’s great to find a nude that is similar to your skin tone for a nice fluid look.
