NARS Holiday 2014

The first thing that caught my eye about the NARS Holiday 2014 collection nail polishes, was the packaging. The graphic print, that is an adaptation of architectural designer Chris Kabatsi’s design, feels like a futuristic snowflake. The juice inside is just as captivating. Three unique shades that range from warm and toasty to crisp and cool to sleek and icy. A true mix of everything winter and the holidays have to offer.

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.

JINsoon X Tess Giberson

As New York Fashion Week begins, I can’t help but lament not being there. Mainly because of all the genius beauty gurus and writer friends I get to see when covering backstage. Jin Soon Choi is one of those people because she is an arbiter of nail fashion and one of the warmest, friendliest people you will ever meet.

So, while I sit here in Cleveland, watching the action from afar, I take some joy in wearing Jin’s latest collection, a fashion collaboration, JINsoon Tess Giberson for Fall 2014. Jin has a knack for delivering finishes that are unique and interesting yet understated and this collection is no exception.

FingerPaints Masquerade Affair - Fall 2014

FingerPaints Masquerade Affair

I don’t know about you guys but I’m saying, “Bye Felicia!” to Radiant Orchid, as amazing blues have dominated 2014 way more than the “Pantone Color of the Year.” And, as we move into fall, I’m transitioning from cobalt to indigo, sapphire and navy.

When my eyes clamped on the FingerPaints Fall 2014 Masquerade Affair collection, I couldn’t resist putting these rich jewel tones on my digits. I mean, emerald, amethyst, gold and sapphire. What’s not to love?

As we move into Fall, prepare to be whisked away to an icy wonderland thanks to the OPI Fall 2014 Nordic collection.

When creating colors for a new seasonal collection, I always draw inspiration from the food,
music, art, landscape and street style of a particular destination,” remarks Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “While conceptualizing the shades of the Nordic Collection, I ate cinnamon buns and drank glogg, snapped photographs of brightly painted houses, and gazed in wonder at the region’s topography – from the northern lights and midnight sun to lava flats and deep fjords. All of these diverse elements came together to inspire an equally varied array of colors that capture the aesthetic of the Nordic region.
