Summer Nail Trends

Nail polish trends change as much as fashion trends and this summer it looks as though the nail trends will be following the fashion trends with bold, bright colors and lots of patterns and prints. It might seem strange to have pattern and prints on your nails, but it can be very chic and fun way to add some extra fringe to your look. I especially like it for special occasions.

Mary-Kate Olsen has been a style icon for some time now and her hot pink nails are right on point. I love that she is wearing such and understated outfit with a bright pop of pink nails, looks so chic and fresh.

Now onto the pattern and print part, celebrities like Beyonce and Katy Perry have been spotted with Minx nails. Minx are super awesome, long lasting nail patches{kind of like a hard core sticker} thathave only been available at select salons at a rather high price compared to a regular manicure. Well, be excited ladies because Sephora, OPI and Minx have collaborated to make at home kits that will only cost you $15! Awesome right?? The Chic Prints for Nails are available in eight different patterns and will work for toes or fingers. So have fun with your nails this summer, be bold, be bright, be patterned!

Spring things to try and love!{part one}

Fashion and beauty trends cycle with the seasons, and with spring, like the earth, we get fresh, new, and cheery things. If you, like most women, are looking to stay so to speak, current, with the trends in fashion and beauty, then please consider trying {and I promise you will love!} these four things which can bring to you a fresh, clean start for spring and a newness to your look. The first spring thing to try and love is a wide belt. This trend has been going strong and with spring we find belts with awesome color and detail that are sure to jazz up any outfit. Wide belts do wonders for your figure and are a great way to update a look without having to buy a whole new wardrobe, the best part being that they are available at every price point. One of my favorite wide belts for spring is this Blooming in Burgundy Belt from Anthropologie. Beautiful color, gorgeous detail, what more do you want??

Number two spring thing to try and love: vibrating mascara. Several different make up lines carry these now and they are fantastic! Mimicking the motion that make up artists have been doing for years to get better coverage and more mascara on the eyelashes, vibrating mascara really adds some drama to your eyes. If you have a brand you love, try theirs, if you don’t want to spend a bunch of cash, try Maybelline’s Pulse Perfect Mascara. From what I can tell, works just as good {if not better} then the department store brands and is a steal at under $10.
