What’s On Your Nails? is a series focusing on my fellow beauty bloggers and industry insiders, their favorite nail polish and other hot nail topics.
Sarah Conley from StyleItOnline.com is one of my oldest and dearest blog friends. She is literally the first person to befriend me in a world where it’s easy to get lost in isolation. She showed me the ropes and what it means to be part of the blogging community. If it wasn’t for her advice-filled chats/phone calls leading up to my first NY Fashion Week experience, I probably wouldn’t have had the guts to step on the plane.
When it comes to the fashion world most of us are just bystanders but Sarah lives and breathes it. Seeing her, giddy like a kid the night before Christmas, spot one of her fave models stomping the catwalk or gushing over the latest MAC launch, her passion is infectious. With the recent revamp of her On The Plus Side series, documenting her daily outfits in all her plus-sized glory, she has amazed me once again.
Learn more about Sarah and see what layering combo is on her nails, after the jump!
Introduce yourself to the ALU readers. Tell us a little about you and your blog.
Hi dearies – I’m Sarah! During the day, I help fashion & beauty brands find their place in social media and by night I write StyleITOnline.com.What is your favorite nail polish?
My favorite polish is always changing. Right now I love MAC’s Cool Reserve and D&G’s Stromboli (mostly because I loved the way Pat McGrath said Stromboli to me!) !
What is on your tips and toes right now?
Do you consider nail polish a beauty necessity or accessory? Why?
An absolutely necessity. I grew up with a beauty-crazed mother and one of her biggest must haves was painted nails. She can spot a chip or a bubble a mile away.
How many bottles of nail polish do you own?
Way too many to count! When I left Arkansas a couple of years ago, I left my collection with my mother (who I knew would appreciate it) and started from scratch. Now I have two drawers full and I just keep adding! The brand doesn’t matter – I’m an equal opportunity polisher.
How often do you change your nail polish?
Once a week. I can’t repeat similar colors back to back and I can’t go without color on my nails.
Do you have a favorite nail treatment you think my readers should know about? Why is it so fab?
I really love using Barielle’s Nail Rebuilding Protein and I am also currently loving Lisa Hoffman’s Hand & Foot Butter. The packaging is fab!
What do you think is the big nail trend for fall?
Nail art! A plain coat of polish just isn’t cutting it anymore!
What nail trend do you wish would go away?
Whoever decided that chipped polish is appropriate and means we’re “busy women” should get a reality check & a manicure pronto.
What is the biggest nail faux pas that women make?
Not stepping out of their comfort zone to try color. C’mon – what’s the worst that can happen?
My thanks to Sarah for finally sharing her thoughts on all things polish (just teasing hon!). Fanatics make sure you visit StyleItOnline.com for your daily dose of fashion and beauty.
So now that we know what’s on Sarah’s nails, what’s on yours?
