Talking Fall and Holiday Nail Trends at Nordstrom’s Pretty Party

On a brisk Saturday morning, 200 beauty-loving women gathered at Nordstrom in Beachwood Place to Wake Up Pretty with me. A slew of beauty gurus spoke about trends in makeup, skin and nails for Fall and Holiday 2013 and I was thrilled to be one of them.

ALU’s 365 of Untrieds – butter LONDON Lady Muck

butter-london-lady-muck-nail-polish-bottle-365-untrieds-1 365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

The blogging community in Cleveland is pretty amazing. Even though the city is relatively large, the social media circle feels small and tight knit, in a good way, and I’ve met some great people through it. Tonight, for instance, I was invited to an event at a local restaurant with a bunch of my fellow bloggers.  We had attended a special media preview when Washington Place Bistro opened its doors last winter and tonight they celebrated the opening of their new patio with a pig roast.

Of course, being the lone beauty girl in this crowd, I have come to expect that my nail color will be noticed or asked about so I try to make sure I’m on point. With the event being sort of a kickoff to patio season I wanted to make sure my polish was springy yet unique.

I knew I was wearing a royal blue top so I started looking for an edgy neutral or light/dark blue in my untrieds bin and pulled this beauty out.  Being that I dragged butter LONDON through the mud over their No More Waity Katie shade a couple weeks ago I hoped Lady Muck would not let me down.

ALU’s 365 of Untrieds – butter LONDON No More Waity, Katie

butter-london-no-more-waity-katie-nail-polish-bottle-365-untrieds 365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

The upcoming Royal Wedding is very polarizing. The Anglophiles are savoring every second of coverage that the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton are receiving. Then there are people like me, who could care less. For the record, I’m not a complainer who wants to stop hearing about it. I respect that people care so I just tune out. What really bugs me though are the companies hawking products with their likenesses, imitations of the engagement ring, etc.

And of course there just had to be a nail polish. butter LONDON’s Nonie Creme paid homage to the Royal Couple with the shade No More Waity, Katie, based on a nickname given to Kate by the press. Being that Nonie is British and her nail polish creations all have Brit-themed names, I’m giving her a pass on this one. Mainly because the color intrigued me. If the shade didn’t sound special, I NEVER would have bought it.
