China Glaze Spring 2015 – Road Trip

ROAD TRIP!! That was the theme of my day’s off during my tenure as a ride operator at Cedar Point. Every Thursday, me and my best buds would hop in my convertible and hit the road. We would either visit our families or hit up other parks, like Sea World, Geauga Lake or Kings Island. As fun as our adventures were, the best part was driving in the car, tunes blasting, with endless amounts of singing and laughing.

The China Glaze Spring 2015 collection celebrates the memory-making fun of the Road Trip with twelve diverse nail polish shades, ranging from delicate pastels to punchy brights.

Spring 2015 Nail & Accessory Trends

Our spring nail color #NailGlossip chat has me dreaming of warm weather and the END OF SNOW! I can not bring myself to tuck jeans into one more boot, or pile on so many layers that I resemble the Michelin Man. Over it.

To get myself in the mood, I’ve been shopping the ShopBop Sale for spring accessories to pair with my favorite nail color trends of the season. I can’t help it, I love accessories because they always fit! No matter what size I am today, I never have to worry about whether I can squeeze into a handbag or pair of sunglasses. Plus, it’s such an easy way for me to inject color into my wardrobe and I really enjoy finding pieces that match my nails.

Nonie Creme Colour Prevails review

There’s a new nail polish brand on the drugstore block, Nonie Creme Colour Prevails. butter LONDON fans will recognize Nonie Creme as the former Creative Director. It’s been a few years since her departure, and I know I wasn’t the only one wondering where she would take her creative genius.

I’ve kept tabs on Nonie through social media, and when she previewed Colour Prevails last September, during New York Fashion Week, I couldn’t wait to hear more. Colour Prevails is more than just nail polish; the line includes foundation, eye shadow, lipstick etc., in decorative packaging that features butterfly wings. I couldn’t resist the unique cap on the Nail Lacquer, so I ordered a few bottles to try.

Last year, I was fortunate to wave goodbye to the snow and cold on a Caribbean cruise. This year, I have to live vicariously through tales of my parents’ Aruba adventure and the summery shades in the Essie Resort 2015 collection.
