Feeling Blue?

Press SampleI’ve been having so much fun playing with Blue Manicures. Those of us who are older know that fun colors like blue and green won’t always be on-trend, so it’s important to play with them while you have the chance!

Splatter Paint Nails!

Press SampleNew Year’s Eve is coming up fast and furious! For those of you who are (like me) nail art challenged, a great way to get a festive look for the biggest party day of the year is to use a top coat with a Splatter Paint effect over your manicure, like these Sephora Formula X shades.  These confetti-inspired topcoats are called “Xplosives”, and depending on what colors you are looking for, the retail price ranges from $6 (some are on sale) to $12.50.

Meteoric is no longer online! Check your local retailer for this black/white combo.  I am wild about it over a deep pink or red.

Wham is a great way to get into the snowy spirit of the season. This pure white confetti is the perfect topper for just about any shade, but my personal favorite is to pair it with a pale baby-blue.
