I’ve always enjoyed doing nail art and learning new techniques and new trends that people seem to get on board with and some of them are very beautiful. Recently I talked about ‘shattered glass’ which was the nail trend to start the year off. The nails to look forward to in the fall of this year is the negative space nails.
These happen to be two of my favourite textures. Pairing a knit top with a leather bottom (or vice versa), will make you feel like you’ve just stepped out of the most recent issue of VOGUE. The simplicity of this style, not only seems, but is pretty much effortless. Investing in quality pieces like the ones below, will benefit your wardrobe in a million ways. I must admit, I love shopping at my local thrift stores but I have also come to appreciate the value in a quality made clothing item. They’re like a piece of art. If you take care of it, it’ll last you forever.
Nail art is becoming more and more popular every day. A manicure with one colour will ALWAYS be in style, but fortunately we have a ton more freedom to express creativity with nail art design. I wanted to show a few pictures for us folks who want to bridge the gap between classic and outrageous polish. A happy-medium in the nail art world can mean something as easy as a few contrasting colours, clean lines and simple shapes.
Just a thin outer edge really brings these two contrasting colours together to create high fashion nails.
Rather than the classic french manicure, why not try it with different colours and put the tip on the side? I really love this, plus anyone could pull it off.
Instead of having a busy polka-dotted nail, try a more subdued version like this one. Simply take a flat polish and pair with a glossy version in the same tone, and voila!
Colour-blocked nails have become wildly popular. To replicate a version similar to this one, just choose two very soft/pastel colours and pair them with one bold polish. That will give your nails that extra punch.
Everyone is talking about the golden globes and the style, and the outfits, and the hits, and the misses…. I’m overwhelmed and it’s not even the Oscars yet! I watched, and I have made my decision. Kristen Wiig’s Micheal Kors dress was my favorite. It was simple, black and comfortable. Her hair? Effortless. Jewellery and accessories? Understated. Love, love.
Michelle Dockery’s gold and white Alexandre Vauthier gown was a close second and I especially liked the exaggerated shoulders and the high neck. Very classy and very different.
