Welcome to This Week in ALU Pol-history a new series where I transport you a la Mr. Peabody’s WABAC (wayback) Machine to check out my favorite past polish posts. Newbies and old school Fanatics, take a look and see what you’ve missed!
We took a look at one of the big trends for Fall 2008, Metallic Nails including the sell-out hit Chanel Kaleidoscope.
China Glaze launched the holiday Sleigh Ride collection with the best green glitter EVER Emerald Sparkle.
OPI’s Holiday In Toyland polishes including Brand New Skates and Baby It’s Coal Outside caused me to reminisce about one of my fave cheesy holiday flicks, Santa Claus The Movie.
MAC released the Smoke Signals and Blue Storm collections which included cult faves Wildfire and Whirlwind.
I talked about Fall Nail Trends which included jewel tones and gunmetal grays. A lot of shades that are still making the nail scene.
I showed you how to customize your nail look through layering and introduced the MUA Nail Board term for custom blending, Frankenpolish.
How was your weekend Fanatics? The Boyfriend and I went to this fun event inside one of the bridges downtown. That’s right, I said INSIDE the bridge. The city opened a tunnel under the Detroit-Superior bridge that was used for trolley cars back in the day to hold a music and art festival. Of course the PBR on tap wasn’t exactly my speed so we walked over to the Great Lakes Brewery for a pint or two and ended up embracing their Oktoberfest menu, indulging in knockwurst and pork schnitzel. Yum!
I’ve been sporting SpaRitual Spirit from their new matte collection on my tips (I’ll be showing it to you this week). What’s on your nails?
