Today I have a special treat for you. My pal Courtney, you may know her as Phyrra, is sharing a beautiful purple gradient nail art look with us. You know how much I love purple so I flipped when I laid eyes on her design.
I had the pleasure of meeting Courtney at BlogHer last summer and she’s every bit as cool and sweet as you would expect from reading her blog. She is also a wizard with social media and blogging and is always at the ready to offer advice for the technologically stupid, like me. Keep reading to check out her creation.
Looking at the Zoya Naturel collection as a whole, you can see how the six shades of skin flattering neutrals fall easily into pairs that can be used for multi-colored manicures or nail art.

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).

I don’t know about you guys but I can’t wait for the Winter Olympics to begin. While the boyfriend will be all consumed with the hockey, I’ll be focused on the figure skating. I took figure skating lessons as a kid, thinking I could grow up to be Katarina Witt or Dorothy Hamill (ps I didn’t) and I can’t wait to see the latest crop of figure skating superstars hit the ice in Sochi.
I recently had the opportunity to speak with Olympic hopeful Gracie Gold who is part of the P&G Family’s Thank You Mom program and representing COVERGIRL in Sochi. Her next step towards Olympic Gold starts today with the kickoff of the US Figure Skating Championships.
We had a chance to dish on her plans for Sochi, how she keeps her face so flawless on the ice and, of course, my favorite topic, nails!
