Spring has not sprung, but lets just pretend

Today is unseasonably warm in Boston (it was 50 degrees on my porch this a.m.) and I happened upon an ad for Essie’s new spring line on the train whilst reading my In Style mag this morning which gave me a flutter of spring fever! Yes, I know its two months away but I will take any little sign its coming. I am completely intrigued by this new line, “The Art of Spring” – ESPECIALLY van d’go and pop art pink. I am not sure if these are in salon’s yet but you best be thinking I will look for it when I go for a mani on Saturday. Has anyone tried these yet? If so, let us know what you think!

Holiday hotness

I have totally been slacking on my pimping this week with the blog.  Its been so busy at work, it was my birthday, my husband’s birthday, my mom’s birthday and I had a Charity event on Thursday. Just tons going on, which I am sure everyone can related to this time of year! The good news is that my fun Charity event led me to a new gorgeous discovery!

A colleague of mine was sweet enough to take me and my team from work out for mani’s to get dolled up for our event on Thursday. I was rocking a pretty fun look as the invite called for “Creative Black Tie”. I wore a dress with kind of a tutu skirt and a fun, funky, silver sequined head band. I was all black and sparkles so wanted something a little goth & dark on my nails to work with the look.

O.P.I.’s new holiday collection was just what the doctor ordered! I tried Sapphire in the Snow and I absolutely LOOOOOVE IT! In dimly lit settings it just looks glossy and purple-y black, sort of like Lincoln Park. But in the light, you can see its a beautiful deep blue/purple. It’s the perfect little tweak for any gal who likes the dark look and wants to spice it up a bit for the holidays. I will be seriously bummed if this one doesn’t make the cut on an ongoing basis. It’s really that good. I guess I will just have to pray to Santa that it’s an everlasting color, or stock pile some to bring with me for mani’s!
