Nailbox Pre-Fall Trendbox

Happy Mani Monday! I hope you all had a fun weekend. I saw Gone Girl, twice, because it was that good. The movie really did the book justice and the casting was pretty spot on. I especially loved Carrie Coon as Nick’s twin, Go. If you are a fan of the book, see it! And if you didn’t read it, what are you waiting for? Though, I took the boyfriend, who hasn’t read it, and he thoroughly enjoyed the film.

Let’s kick off the week with a patterned Dotticure using the Nailbox Pre-Fall TrendBox, curated by my pal Sarah from Chalkboard Nails. I created this look as part of my work with Nailbox but it was so fun that I just had to share it here. I wore it all weekend and got so many compliments.

Nailbox Trendbox Pre-Fall 2014

The next edition of the Nailbox Trendbox is out and, for Pre-Fall 2014, my friend Sarah from Chalkboard Nails is the curator. You may remember that I curated the first Nailbox TrendBox, a quarterly nail polish subscription service that delivers $65 worth of product for only $35.

Sarah has a keen eye for color and her choices are so dead on for this time of year where one day calls for a sundress and flip flops and the next you’re pulling out chunky knits and boots.

With four nail polish shades to transition you from summer to fall, the Pre-Fall 2014 Trendbox also includes a matte top coat, making the collection even more versatile.

Last night was so much fun, you guys! Not only did the Golden Globes air, my fave award show of the season, but I co-hosted the very first #NailGlossip twitter chat with Sarah from Chalkboard Nails and Jen from The PolishAholic. It was so great dishing on the award show looks with fellow nail fanatics. The hour flew by and I can’t wait for the next one, January 26th (Grammy night).

During the chat, @NailedKit asked if any dresses inspired us to create nail art so I threw down the challenge that we should all try our hand at some Golden Globes inspired designs. I don’t know about you guys, but I couldn’t take my eyes of Mila Kunis. I’ve never seen her have a bad red carpet moment and I knew her sequin and chiffon Gucci Premiére gown would look fantastic as nail art.
