The holiday season keeps my manicures interesting. This week I chose to go a bit further into freehand. Starting with CND Vinylux cream puff – a crisp white for the base. Secondly, I used a thin nail art brush to swipe a custom blue/gray Vinylux shade in a crescent shape along the side. If you use light motions while the white coat is still wet you’ll get a more abstract effect, repeat with metallic gold. I did both the side colors one nail at a time. All topped off with the Vinylux weekly topcoat!
“Marsala” has been labeled as Pantone’s color the year for 2015. The rich, sultry & muted red-brown is one of my favorite versatile color choices in both makeup and fashion.
I am proud to feature our new makeup at Pure Aveda Salonspa -The Autumn/Winter 2014 collection Romantic Grandeur. The collection features 3 items that favor shades of “Marsala”. In the picture below you will find smoothing lip color in sheer fig, rehydrating lip glaze in mangosteen and petal essence single eye color in all spice.
I won the checkout- line lottery when I scored these très chic heels on sale at Forever21. Thanks to Alexander Wang for creating the original beauties! The added bonus comes from a comfort factor in the stacked 3.5 inch heel. Double yay.
