Remember when you couldn't wait to do your nails as a teeny bopper? When you were oh so excited to learn new things, show off your nails, and change them to match every outfit? Well you can get that excitement back! All you have to do is realize that the power of beauty literally lies in your own hands! You can do it yourself!
Nail art is a fun way to express your individuality. It's also a great way to celebrate the seasons or any festive occasion, or just show whatever mood you're in. All you have to do it get ready to have some fun and the sky's the nail art limit!
For this look I did one coat of Nailtek. I have very soft and peeling nails. So a good treatment is a must for me. Then two coats of OPI Lucky Lavender on all but the last two digits. On my pinky and ring fingers I did one coat of OPI Sheer Your Toys then topped it with one coat of glitter. Next I added one large glitter stone to each nail. Then I stopped to think of what kind of mood I was in and decided on being bling-a-licious! So I put rhinestones at the base of my left hand middle finger and loose confetti stars on the ring finger of my right hand. The confetti stars can be purchased at any beauty supply. I did a couple swipes of fuschia and black nail art paint at the tips of each thumb and pointer finger for added drama baby! Yeeees! Next I did one coat of Nailtek as a topcoat.
For my feet I followed the same steps. But I put the Sheer Your Toys on each third toe. Due to wearing boots and closed toe shoes because it's Winter I opted out of placing any other embellishments on my tootsies.
See! Easy and fun! Now you're ready to kick off the Winter season with glamour!

Fashion Week or MBFW (Mercedes Benz Fashion Week), or NYFW (New York Fashion Week) was an experience of a lifetime! I had a grand ball with the FashionMingle.net team!
NYFW is like the biggest best-est grown up dress-up party and display. Do you remember when you used to play dress-up as a little girl? Well, MBFW is like dress-up exemplified. There were so many exciting fashions to see. It really seemed like people were in their best costumes that only they could dream up. It felt like a walking, living, breathing closet. Fashion Week during September is THE most exciting time of the year for fashion. Because September is the January of the fashion world. Many of the bloggers and writers are profiled during this wonderful event. Check out the links I've provided below where I was featured.
