Support clean water + inspired nail art


In honor of Aveda Earth Month 2015, I have created a nail design that blends several blue hues. The featured base color is CND Vinylux in Creekside. I layered with CND Vinylux  in Indigo Frock and Maybelline Color Show in Shock Wave. 

Using a few custom cut makeup brushes I had lying around and placing drops of polish on aluminum foil….it was super simple to create this wispy look by layering the shades over the dry base color.

pantone’s color of the year 2015 announced

“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.
