My Top 10 Fall Nail colors!!!!!

14 Sep

One of the biggest statement making accessories in your wardrobe is your NAILS!!!!!  Nail color can change the entire vibe of an outfit and make you feel polished(no pun intended) and pretty!!!!! The greatest thing about this fabulous “accessory” is that everyone can afford a bottle of nail polish! I wear drug store brands as well as designer and everything in between.  The polishes I will be featuring in this post are all by Essie are around $8  which I think is mid ranged, HOWEVER there are many more affordable options like wet’ n wild and small sample polishes at your local beauty shops.  If you’re on a budget, you can still have fabulous nails!  Anyways, let’s get right to it……here are my top 10 Fall nail polishes that I will be rocking throughout the Fall and well into Winter. Get involved people!!!

Essie ‘Armed and ready’ is a metallic dark olive-green available HERE.

How Do You Prefer Your Nails?

30 May

I came across this nifty little nail chart on Pinterest today and it definitely made me wonder what nail shapes everyone else preferred. I’ve seen these shapes change throughout the years depending on current trends etc. I was a ‘square girl’ early on and now I’m totally a short and ‘squoval girl’.  What nail shape are you?

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?
