Motivation Mani Monday: Kyodan

Because working out can be such a drag, I’ve decided to spice up my exercise routine by matching my nails to the different prints of my fave workout clothes. Each Monday I’ll be featuring a different outfit with coordinating nails. Kyodan Clothing launched their Spring/Summer 2016 collection and included is this black, white and yellow printed outfit that seems to resemble a New York cityscape. For the

Match-It Monday: Tie-Dye in Bryant Park

On a 90 degree day, I would rather stay in doors than go outside wearing anything other than a loose, flowy dress. That’s why this look is essential for keeping cool in the summer. Sweat=death (especially in the city). I wanted to bring back an updated, chic version of the 90’s classic print: tie-dye.  And to show my nails some love, I decided to paint splatter some

Match-It Monday: Lilac Ombre Hydrangea

When vacationing, I was surrounded by lots and lots and lots of hydrangeas–purple, blue, lilac, lilac ombre. So when it came to my mid-vacay mani, I picked the perfect color combos for my ombre nail art. {hubby for dessert | pret-o-surfer | lapis of luxury}  

Match-It Monday: Cool Off with Coral

The temperature seems to be skyrocketing these days (if you live in New England, you know what I’m talking about). That’s why this week’s Match-It Monday is a fiery coral orange. Essie’s Geranium polish is a perfect summer polish that can be worn with lots of breezy summer dresses. The beaded ponyhair necklace by Danelle Designs plays up the simple coral jersey dress. Even some of

Bridesmaid Looks For Every Wedding

Whether you’re having a black-tie wedding or a laid back beach ceremony, the bridal party looks (yes, even down to the nails) play a huge part in setting the tone for the theme of the wedding. French manicures are a no-no so finding the perfect polish for your best gals to wear on your special day is important. Browse through the different bridesmaid styles and

Match-It Monday: A Turquoise Statement

Turquoise nail can make any summer outfit pop, but pair them with similar colored statement earrings….life changing. Your nails and ears are just far enough apart that it doesn’t look like you’re trying to master a monochromatic look (even though love me some matchy-match).   {Polish: Revlon in Teal (similar color here) | Earrings: Anthropologie (similar style here)}            

Match-It Monday: Blush & Gold Sequins

Nothing beats a monochromatic look, especially when you can design your own nail art. KISS’ imPRESS nails in blush were a perfect match to my sequin Sugarberry dress by Eva Franco. The gold accents (also by KISS) came in various patterns and were cut into different lengths before being added to the nails. *I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample

The Best Green Nail Polishes for St. Patty’s Day

On a day filled with green beer, lots of Guinness, and corned beef and cabbage, this Irish holiday is not only supah fun , but requires you to wear green. I’m not saying you need to throw on a scally cap and a tartan kilt, but a little zest of green wouldn’t hurt, especially on your nails. If you don’t think you can rock a green

Match-It Monday: Metallic Blue

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard about H&M’s new sister store, & other stories. The NYC store is the first in the US and it lived up to all the hype as soon as I walked up the steep steps (seriously SO steep) and through the door. Everything is placed so elegantly and while it’s an “upscale version of H&M”, the prices

Match-It Monday-Emerald Pool Print

This week’s Match-It Monday is taken from one of J.Crew Factory’s hottest prints this summer–the Emerald Pool Print. This print comes in any style you can imagine, so wear them together for a monochromatic’ish look or separately. Simcha Whitehill aka Miss Pop Nails, created a bright floral mani inspired by Andy Warhol. Maybe J.Crew Factory was inspired by these artistic tips to create the Emerald-Pool
