China Glaze Fall 2014 – All Aboard

When I think of train travel, I immediately picture the episode of Sex and The City where Carrie and Samantha venture cross country with visions of luxurious sleeper compartments and glamorous bar car parties that are quickly squashed by the reality of today’s rail system.

Though, like a scene out of 50s movie, the China Glaze All Aboard collection hearkens back to a more elegant time for the rails, when people dressed for travel and the possibility of meeting your Cary Grant on board was alive and well.

Essie Fall 2014 – Dress To Kilt

I’m calling the second half of the OPI Nordic collection for Fall 2014, 50 Shades of Tan. Okay, I’m exaggerating but there are a lot of neutrals here. So much so, that they seem better suited for the Wild, Wild, West than the Nordic countries. Granted, I’ve never visited Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway or Sweden so they could be totally on the nose for that part of the world. Let’s take a look!
