Nail Trends

Do you remember the days when nail polish only came in pinks and reds? Sometimes you would see things tilt toward purple or orange, but you never saw lime green, royal blue and definitely not black except for Halloween.

I think my first time seeing blue nail polish was in the Delia's catalog or in Hard Candy's makeup line. Remember those days?

Now we have a rainbow of choices including sparkles and metallics.

For the past couple of years deep navy, black, plumb and white have all enjoyed their time in the spotlight as "THE nail color of the season" thanks to iconic fashion house Chanel.

So, what's the trend now? Well, shades of pale greens, pale blues, lavender,coral and all things glitter are everywhere. But to be honest, I feel like nail color trends have kind of died and now it's just a free for all. Do you agree or disagree?



shoeMy work's annual gala is coming up next month. I always look forward to it because we get to dress up in cocktail attire. So, for fun I put together an outfit using Polyvore. I chose a black dress because I feel most comfortable in black, and since this is work related I'm going to be running around every where. To shy away from being a complete bore, I found these colorful shoes and bag to brighten things up a bit and some sparkles to add some funk. A smokey eye is always special for evening events with some pale gloss and fun nail polish.

Now, if only I had tons of money to go buy a great cocktail dress....hmmm.
