The modern manicure is all about mixing finishes, complementary colors, and the unexpected. I was playing with nail swatches the other day, and thought these three shades together would make an excellent purple manicure with a chrone accent nail for fall. All three of these shades are from the Sephora Formula X collection. [Read more...]

I’ve been a bit slow on the reviews these days, so I’m posting this just for fun. Here’s what it looks like when I play with nail lacquer. I’ve become a bit of a color hoarder these days, so my first step is to swatch every shade I own and put it in a fan deck. Then I can breeze through my color collection to see what I’m in the mood to wear. In the photo above, I’m playing with Nail Color to determine which would make a great mani/pedi combo. It’s so easy to do when you have actual samples of what a painted nail would look like in any given color. Plus, it’s just pretty damn fun.
These shades are all from the Sephora Formula X collection. You’ll be seeing more of these beauties in the future. While you’re waiting though, don’t miss Infatuated and Unmistakable for summer. I heart them. I’m wearing Unmistakable on my toes right now, topped with one of the new MAC Nail Transformation top coats (in Highlight).
