Some of my beauty blogging buddies started a group to share their Top Ten products on a regular basis and I decided to join in on the fun. The first topic is Top Ten Palettes which is so up my alley.

As much as I love makeup, pairing eye shadows is not my forte. I have a ton of single shadows in my arsenal but, more often than not, I gravitate towards palettes for my eye looks. I like that someone took the guesswork out of it for me and over the years I’ve amassed quite a selection of palettes.

Check out my faves and a few I’m lusting after for the upcoming holiday season.

Fall 2013 Nail Trends at Saks Fifth Avenue Beachwood

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of hosting an event at Saks Fifth Avenue Beachwood. The focus was Fall 2013 Nail Trends and I had a blast. I loved meeting other Cleveland nail polish fanatics and talking fall nail color.  To the readers and fellow bloggers who came out from behind the screen to say hi, thank you for coming. It was wonderful putting a face with a name.

We enjoyed bubbles, ridiculously good nail polish-shaped cookies from Bon Bon, hand and arm massages from Jo Malone and nail polish changes from local manicurists.

On top of that, I put together a nail trend display featuring nail colors sold at Saks. You may not normally think Saks when shopping for nail polish but, they have all the familiar prestige and luxury brands plus some you don’t normally see, like Tom Ford, Armani and Le Metier de Beaute.

Maybe, like me, you’re thinking, one of these things is not like the other. Pairing a creamy summer staple, coral, with two bold metallics in non-traditional hues seems unconventional for Chanel.

As Tom and Donna from Parks and Recreation say, Treat Yo’ Self Day is the, “Best Day Of Year!” It’s a day to splurge on the those things that are outside your normal budget; facials, designer handbags, totally impractical shoes, expensive meals, etc. Since that episode aired, every time I go to make an extravagant purchase and question whether I REALLY need it, I hear Tom in my head saying, “Michelle, treat yo’ self!”

You see, I was raised a frugal barganista (thanks Mom!) so it takes a lot for something to be worth its full price tag. In this new series I’ll be sharing the nail polishes and products that I are consider fitting of a Treat Yo’ Self Day indulgence.

Even though I’ve been avoiding dark nail polishes this spring, I could not escape the mystical allure of Chanel Taboo.
