“A beach escape is just the thing to recharge, renew and break free of winter’s icy reach,” says brand founder and Global Creative Director Essie Weingarten.

I couldn’t agree more. My week in the Caribbean was just what the doctor ordered for the winter blues and these new shades in the Essie Resort 2014 collection conjure up thoughts of sea, sand, fruity drinks and moonlit walks.

As part of their bigger-than-ever holiday collection, OPI Mariah Carey Holiday includes six new Liquid Sand colors. Unlike the Liquid Sand’s that were part of the first Mariah Carey collection, these shades are more refined. No star glitter or giant chunky sequins to be found.

The colors and names speak to my nauti-loving heart. Makes me want to wear stripes, boat shoes and rope bracelets, like the ones from Kiel James Patrick. As a whole, this collection screams summer but there are three shades in particular that stood up and said, “love me!” And I do!

Three Ways To Wear Sally Hansen “Fuzzy Coat” Textured Nail Polish

While textured nail polish is, without a doubt, the predominant trend for 2013, it’s also extremely polarizing. There is a hard line in the sand when it comes to the love/hate relationship we have with the look. And though sand texture has made the biggest impact, the fuzzy/feathered look isn’t far behind.
