  • Makeup: Beauty by the Book – Nail Trend – Puddles

    If you read this blog on a regular basis, you know how much I love highlighting the latest in nail trends. From the moon manicures to the textured nail looks, I am all about showcasing the newest and hottest ways to wear your nails. Well, ladies and gents, there is a new trend on the scene and its called puddling. This is where you use several different polishes to create what looks like a camoflauge effect on the nail. It’s quite cute and is very wearable. Jin Soon, one of the leading manicurists and nail experts recently displayed this trend in a special tutorial for Sephora.com. Check it out!

    Election Night 2012

    Today is Election Day 2012 for the United States of America which means the entire country casts their vote for the candidate they believe is best suited to run our country. As a Democrat and a very strong supporter of liberal ideals, I already cast my vote during last week during advanced voting. For all of my American readers, if you haven’t done so already, please take the time to go and cast your vote today. It’s imperative that we exercise our right to vote as it is truly one of the freedoms we possess that should be cherised and held in high regard. No matter what your political beliefs are, you need to vote so we can continue to enjoy the freedoms that Democracy affords us. In the spirit of Election Night, I decided to highlight a fun nail tutorial that will surely showcase your enthusiasm and excitement for the election process and maybe even inspire those around you to head to the polls. Check it out!
