Cult Nails Secret Collection

On Christmas Eve, I was taken with this manicure posted on the Cult Nails Instagram page using the “Secret Collection.” The concept being that you didn’t know the contents during the pre-sale. Now that the pre-sale is over, the cat is out of the bag.

A quick jump over to CultNails.com and I spied this “mystery” collection on sale for half off. With a green and blue in the lineup, it was a no-brainer for me.

Best Glitter Nail Polish for Holiday 2014

When it comes to holiday manicures, there is no easier way to transition your nails from day to night than adding a glittery top coat. Nail art is fun, if you have the time, but considering how crazy this season is, time is never on our side.

Take this past Saturday, for instance. I had the best intentions of creating a fun look for my friend’s wedding. The reality… I was shopping all day and by the time I got home, the best I could do was throw a gold glitter over my navy mani. Done and done!

With all the unique combinations of glitter colors and sizes being thrown our way, the options for sprucing up your nail look are limitless. Today, I have my Top 10 Glitter Top Coats to take your mani from “fine” to “fab.”

Best of 2014 – Top 36 Nail Polishes of the Year

This Sunday, my #NailGlossip co-hosts and I will be discussing our favorite things from 2014 and what we’re looking forward to for 2015. I hope you’ll join us on Twitter at 9pm est to share your thoughts with us. It will be so fun (and there’s giveaways)!

So, as I’m reflecting on the past year in nail color, I want to share my favorites from the past year with you. Though, let me say, narrowing down this list to just 36 was no small feat. It started at 60+ but I only wanted to include polishes that I’ve worn multiple times, didn’t want to remove and have taken up permanent residence in my collection.

Without further adieu I give you my Top 36 Nail Polishes of 2014.

Smoky Plum Eye Tutorial

It’s not secret that when it comes to eye makeup, I LIVE for a palette. And a peek inside my in-need-of-a-good-purge makeup collection will reveal that MAC palettes make up the majority of my stash. Especially the holiday ones. I probably have eight or more of them.

So when the Makeup Wars gang decided to create a holiday makeup look, I knew exactly what to reach for. The MAC Keepsakes Plum Eyes palette is so my style, with the majority of the colors leaning towards cool. It created a smoky eye that is perfect for holiday parties and I couldn’t resist coming up with a nail look to go with it. Check it!
