  • I’m Currently Obsessed With… Bad Romance – by The Lippmann Collection


    I am working on a color story for the Fall issue of Kouture Magazine and I had the pleasure of getting to check out an amazingly fresh new nail color called Bad Romance by the Lippmann Collection which will be debuting shortly. This color was inspired by Lady Gaga during a manicure for a photo shoot. The result is a color that is ridiculousy sexy, decadent and fun! Its a blackened fuchsia with glitter.

    I can’t wait to rock this shade in the Fall on fingers and toes.

  • Seche Vite is the Grand Dame of Top Coats

    SV Fast Dry High ResI have a love affair with all things glossy, shiny, shimmery, glimmery and glassy. I think its why everything in my closet, makeup bag and in my life has to have some sort of shine to it or forget about it! When it comes to nails, I know the hot new thing is matte, matte, matte, but just because its hot doesn’t mean it has to be something you embrace. I am so into shiny, glassy, glossy nails. I love when my nails gleam in the sunlight or while dancing the night away under the stars. It adds an extra pop to your look and gives your hands a nice glow.

    So, if you’re looking for the ultimate glossy top coat, look no further – Seche Vite is where it’s at! I love this top coat. It brings on brilliant shine while sealing the lacquer which keeps it from chipping, peeling and cracking. If you like to go glossy, go Seche!

  • Aldo Delves into the World of Nails!


    I heart Aldo! I mean really I do. I love their sexy sandals, flip flops, slides, platforms, boots and booties! Just about every single time I venture into one of their stores, I want about fourteen different pairs of shoes and several rings, earrings and purses. My favorite Aldo store has to be the one on South Beach – they rock some of the hottest styles and accessories ever! Love it!

    So now that Aldo is diving into the world of nails, I am super excited. I can’t wait to see the color palette as they are a very fashion forward, cutting edge brand that caters to the young, fashionable, jet-set who wouldn’t dare play things simple, safe or sane!

    The word around town is the summer colors are to die for and are great for those wild pool parties, barbecues at the beach and lounging around on the yacht in that sick Brazilian bikini and sky high wedges!
