St Patrick’s Day Nails

I’m a strong believer that there is no such thing as too much green. St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect time to put that theory to the test. From my bright green loafers to my pool felt colored pea-coat to my Lucky Charms tee and shamrock accessories, I’m ready to be faux-Irish for a day.

This year, instead of doing nail art, I just want to wear a glorious new green that I’ve never used before. A deep dive into my Helmer unearthed Morgan Taylor Later Alligator. And with the perfectly-timed arrival of the Nicole by OPI Coca-Cola collection, my St. Patrick’s Day nails were born!

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.

Morgan Taylor Cinderella Swatches & Review

Morgan Taylor Cinderella review via @alllacqueredup

Morgan Taylor Cinderella

Of all the fairy tale princesses, Cinderella was my favorite as a child. I mean, what little girl wouldn’t love to have a fairy godmother to whip up a ball gown out of scraps with a simple, “Bibbidi bobbidi boo!”  I remember teetering around in a pair of embellished lucite mules I found in my mom’s closet, pretending they were glass slippers. And I still have my Cinderella VHS and Madame Alexander Cinderella dolls, both the ball gown and “poor” versions.

Now Disney is releasing a live action version of Cinderella with Cate Blanchett as the as the evil stepmother and Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother and Morgan Taylor has partnered with film on a nail polish collection. Morgan Taylor Cinderella is their Spring 2015 collection and it’s filled with sweet shades, worthy of a princess.

Golden Globes 2015 – Negative Space Nails Inspired by Kate Hudson in Versace

Golden Globes 2015 Nail Art – Kate Hudson in Versace

The Golden Globes is always my favorite award show of the season. The combination of television and film stars with free flowing booze usually results in a very fun night. Last night’s show fell a little flat but the red carpet was full of excitement. From Kiera Knightly’s gown that made me question what is going on at Chanel to Julieanne Moore’s liquid metallic ombre (with feathers!) it was a feast for the fashion eye.

While metallics were clearly a trend, what I really loved is a look that’s also big in nails, cutouts or negative space. Rosamund Pike, Emily Blunt and Jane Fonda all worked the trend but it was Kate Hudson that caused me to gasp in this white and silver Versace design. It’s nail art as fashion and the inspiration for my Golden Globes Negative Space Nails.
