This bright dotticure was inspired by the little girls who live on my street. A couple of them like to pop by when the boyfriend and I are dining on our deck and they’ve become fascinated with my nail polish room and constantly changing manicures. In fact, one held her arms out wide and declared, “Your obsession is this big,” when looking into my office. She’s totally right, ha!
Anyway, last night they came over and I invited them in to see all the Helmer drawers of color, swatch wheels and random nonsense in my room. And together, they decided that my nails needed polka dots in these two colors so I went with it. The 4-year-old who LOVES pink, as most little girls do, was adamant that this new L’Oreal Colour Riche shade go on my nails.
I used the L’Oreal Neons shade, Punchy Lychee, with Rimmel LONDON Salon Pro shade, BritPop, for the dots. And even though Punchy Lychee is more orange-coral than pink-coral, as the bottle color inferred, I love this combo and may need to consult with them from now on. I mean, I have the same taste in music as the 10-year-old, so, why not?

It’s never too late for a #ManiMonday look, right? I was all indecisive about what to put on my nails today and then the L’Oreal Miss Denim Summer 2014 nail polish collection arrived and inspiration struck. This mix of five denim shades and one rosy pink, all in a textured finish, were just begging to be worn together.
As I told you when I named my Top 10 Summer Nail Polish Collections, Morgan Taylor Island Treasures made the list for its mix of “me” colors with more mainstream shades like pink and fuchsia. The brand really hasn’t gotten enough attention for its top notch formula which you’ll get to see in a new video series I’m testing out.

Is anyone else obsessed with the “80s Project” on Grey’s Anatomy? If you aren’t in the know, the second half of the season featured unique covers of creator Shonda Rhimes’ favorite 80s tunes. We’re talking, “Take On Me”, “Tainted Love”, “Fame”, etc. I hope they sell them as a compilation.
Between that and the Deborah Lippmann Summer 2014 “80s Rewind” collection, I’m loving this celebration of my favorite decade for music.
