As you can see, blues and pinks are my weakness! And who doesn’t love pastels?! Remember that nail polish is just another accessory to add some color to your wardrobe so have fun with it! Don’t get so bogged down with trends. Do you! xx

Try This: Beyonce’s Inauguration Mani

Inauguration Nails Bey

I see that Bey is becoming quite a trendsetter when it comes to nail polish. When I saw her wearing Baker Street from Nails Inc. I had to have it. And here is another must have color that I need in my life. While she sang the national anthem at President Barack Obama’s Inauguration Ceremony here in DC earlier this week, I couldn’t help but notice her gorgeous redish-tangerine nails!

As I have said a million times in the past couple of weeks, red is my thing right now, and Bey is giving me life with this color in “I’m With The Band” from NCLA, a LA based nail polish line that is infamous for their bold nail polishes and even bolder nail wraps. You can find out more about this color as well as the brand at www.shopncla.com.

But you know I found a duplicate for this color, right? In actuality, when I googled “I’m With The Band,” the swatches didn’t quite look as bright as the color looks in the picture above. Well, I also follow Color Club on Facebook, and they have a similar color, which I think is a bit brighter (and much more afforadable) than “I’m With The Band.” The colors aren’t exactly the same, but I think Color Club’s Lava Lamp is more my type of color. But depending on your taste, you may like one more than the other…I think either option is gorge!

So what do you think of Bey’s manicure? Would you try this color? Are there any other celeb manis that you would like to duplicate?

Just Like Candy Mani

Let me start by saying that this nail design was inspired by a post I saw recently here on Channing in the City. It was posted by a guest blogger, Sereeda from http://www.eclechick.com, and I loved the design so much I decided to try it!

With all the doom and gloom going on outside today, I thought I would brighten my day with this pretty DIY nail design. Sereeda’s instructions were super easy to follow (be sure to click on the link above) so I won’t go over the steps again, but I will tell you what nail colors and brands I used below:

Used Zoya’s Ericka as the based color. Color Club’s Blu-Ming, Nails Inc’s Baker Street, and Zoya’s Lara were used to make the dots. I also used a dotting tool which is not pictured here.

How adorable is this? Makes me think of Nerds!!

I love this mani and fully intend on doing variations of this look in the future. I’m so glad I decided not to go to the nail salon today because I think I did a pretty good job on my cuticles! Lol…But what do you guys think of this mani?? Would you try it? Talk to you all soon! XOXO

Blu-Ming

Here is one of my favs at the moment, Color Club’s Blu-Ming from their Blossoming collection for Spring 2012. I didn’t bother to buy the rest of the collection because after you have purchased as much polish as I have, the colors begin to look redundant. However, I think this one is a gem!! I posted a picture of it on my Instagram and it was quite popular so I thought I would blog about it. It was super easy to apply, as the formula was amazing and very easy to work with:

Blu-Ming is so incredibly bright!! It’s like CC took a mint green and turned it up several notches!! It was a little streaky with the first coat, but looks perfectly opaque after you apply a second. I def would recommend that you add this color to your stash!! XOXO…

Revvvolution

In my efforts to refrain from purchasing any nail polish during Lent (I am not Catholic, but wanted to sacrifice something) I have been shopping for nail polish within my own collection, which has actually been fun. I remembered that I had this baby after someone I follow on Instagram posted a swatch of it.

Color Club’s Revvvolution is an amazing holographic black nail color.  As with most Color Club polishes, the formula is smooth and very easy to work with…I can’t believe I had forgotten about this one, but these swatches have reminded me of why I was so eager to get my hands on it (or should I say get it on my hands! Lol). Check out the swatches:

Color Club has some other holographic nail polishes like Fashion Addict (Catwalk Queen Collection) and Worth the Risqué (Femme Fatale collection), which have been in my wish list for a minute. I’m sure they are just as amazing!!

Do you have Revvvolution? If so, what do you think about it?
