As you all know, I’m a nail polish/nail art addict. I love trying out cool new tricks to get glam nails! Today’s nail-do is super funky yet chic, and i’m a little obsessed. I absolutely love these gold flakes – they spice up your manicure in an instant!
Fresh, light, and airy, BABY BLUE was all over the SPRING 2012 runways. From Chanel to Versace, designers strongly embraced this pastel shade from dresses, to jackets, to accessories and more! I absolutely LOVE this hue as it can be worn both during the day and night with an air of sophistication. Also, baby blue can be paired easily with many shades. Whether it’s with another pastel shade, a bolder color, or even tone on tone, baby blue is chic in all senses.
You can spice up your baby blue ensemble by pairing it with silver, glitter, and/or some bling. This will give it a touch of richness, elegance, and glam!
Chanel’s Spring 2012 handbags collection features a gorgeous powder blue purse that is definitely a collectors piece. Having a great accent hand bag is great for transforming a simple outfit in to a statement look.
Inspired by this soft shade, I decided to create a nail art design with baby blue, silver, and glitter nail polish (seen below to your right). It’s always fun painting your nails one shade and having one or two accent nails for added drama.
Say goodbye to Monday blues and hello to BABY BLUE!
The color of this Spring is Pantone 17-1463, or more popularly know as TANGERINE TANGO! Sephora and Pantone have collaborated and come out with an exclusive, limited edition collection inspired by this hue.

I absolutely LOVE the entire collection and want to buy everything! The collection includes funky eyelashes, blushes, nail polish sets, brush sets, eyes shadows, lip glosses and MORE! I was able to get my hands on the fab blush duo:
This blush is amazing because it is the perfect peachy tone with a little bit of shimmer and looks great on all skin types. I definitely recommend this product!
I decided to have a little fun with this color and created a nail art designer that is perfect for Spring! Check it out:

Lately I have become quite obsessed with polka dots – they’re fun, flirty, and you can create so many cute looks!
Kate Spade’s latest collection has the cutest polka dot iphone and laptop cases, and the entire collection embraces the look as well. LOVE! Bold pops of color and neon splashes complement a chic black and white polka dot skirt. I love working opposite pieces together – a leather jacket adds a little bit of edge to this playful ensemble. Add some fun accessories and you’re ready to go rock the town!

If you guys are anything like me (excessive OCD when it comes to doing your nails), you can understand the pain of experiencing that first chip of nail polish the next day after getting a fab manicure!
I literally paint my nails twice a week and I love experimenting with colors, designs, and embellishments. Today I decided to go with a fun geometrical design by juxtaposing a bold tangerine color with a pastel nude shade.
