My Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NOTD Challenge

Hola from Fashion Week Fanatics!! I arrived in New York City on Wednesday and it’s been a whirlwind of activity ever since. Not only am I here to cover backstage nail, makeup and hair trends for a third season but I also had the pleasure of participating in some fun beauty blogger activities with Total Beauty. Between all of that and visiting some of my favorite brands, I’m one tired nail fanatic!

As if I don’t have enough things on my plate while I’m in town, I decided to tack one more to-do on the list. This season I challenged myself to wearing a different nail look each day. Take a peek at my Day 1 & 2 manicures after the jump!

You may remember that I visited the now famous Sakura last season to get a gel gradation manicure. It was great for a long week like this when I don’t have time to deal with chipping nails and tip wear. However this year I decided to switch it up on the daily.

You see I was inspired by my pal Heather from MAC. She initiated a NY Fashion Week Makeup Challenge to all us bloggers which is really fun but hard to pack for. My makeup bag can only carry so much. So while I’m doing something a little different each day I’m no wizard with a brush. BUT I can do something similar with nails. Enter the NOTD Challenge.

BT-dubs you MUST check out the FAB Sakura manicures my girls Heather, Dina and Sarah did for this week.

Day One – I flew in early Wednesday after being up all night, my usual pre-trip packing nightmare. Some time in the wee hours of the morning I did a quick mani with RBL Orbis Non Sufficit from The Blog Writer’s Colors collection. Since I’m wearing Mismas on my toes I wanted a strong green creme to pair with it and this one fit the bill.
Day Two – I received the new Zoya MatteVelvet Winter colors but didn’t have a chance to review them before leaving. Knowing I’d want to bring some matte looks to the party, I had to pack Savita. This is not my proudest photographic moment but it’s proof that I did the change.
Be sure to check back for more looks from my NYFW NOTD Challenge and stay tuned for lots of fun backstage coverage. It’s just getting started!

    What fun and excitement to be at Fashion Week. Hope you find out some new polish shades and let us in on it! Your wearing my two favorite colors. Green is my number one with purple second. Love that manicure with the green, just beautiful. The new Zoya is pretty but it looks like something else I've seen.
