Sally Hansen – Coral Reef

sally hansen - coral reef

Since Spring insists on being fashionably late, I thought I would break out some Spring nail polishes to help me cope with that fact that its almost April and we are still dealing with 35 degree weather here in DC/Maryland. Whatevs…Anywhoo, I wanted to share this gorgeous Sally Hansen Extreme Wear nail polish with you guys.

The first thing I love about this color is the fact that it is super affordable and retails for $2-$3 per bottle. The second thing I love about the color is that it is rich in consistency and has amazing color payoff. In the images above I used two coats but could have easily used just one to achieve this look. This bright coral pink will def grab folks’ attention this Spring.

As a bonus I thought I would add an accent to my ring and pinky fingers. I used American Apparel’s Meteor Shower, which is actually a really cool top coat. The gold flakes look like sharred confetti. Don’t sleep on American Apparel folks! It’s another affordable nail polish brand that goes for about $6 per bottle ($5 if you buy 3).

I hope you all enjoyed this post…Talk to you all soon!

Go Mint

I don’t know what it is about mint green that gets me all excited, but I have fallen in love with a number of mint green accessories this season. The mint green trend has returned once again and is a very popular look for Spring and Summer 2013. So I decided to come up with some fun accessories that I thought you all may love:

As you can see, mint green accessories can be mixed and matched with various metals as well as a number of prints (tribal, leopard, etc.). In the outfit on the left, I love how the model mixes her mint green jeans with a dark sweater/blazer. This look demonstrates that you can easily spice things up a bit by incorporating color into an already chic but conservative look. And the leopard clutch is a great contrast between the light/dark hues.

But if you are one that stays away from bright clothing, consider investing in a mint handbag. Coach and Rebecca Minkoff have designed some great options (pictured above the right). A fun necklace or shoe can also do the trick. And of course, I had to mention at least one nail polish that fits the mint trend (Ciate’s Pepperminty).

So…What Spring trends are you guys excited about? I’ve already purchased some mint green jeans, but I may need to cop one of these cute crossbody bags too!

I hope everyone is having a great week! xx
