If you’re following me on Twitter, than you know that I was so excited about the Zoya Summer 2015 Paradise Sun collection, I didn’t know which color to wear first.

Essie Summer 2015 review

As much as I’m known for my love of all things green, I have a lesser known obsession with sparkly white nail polish. It all started with China Glaze White-Kwik-Silvr and it’s been going strong ever since. White feels so fresh and clean in summer, but add a little glimmer and I’m sold.

So, when I realized the Essie Summer 2015 collection included a white sparkler, I had to get my hands on it. Thanks to a quick eBay search, I was able to get a set to share with you. But, would this white live up to my high expectations? Keep reading to find out.

OPI Soft Shades 2015 Review

Sheers and bridal shades aren’t really my thing. Mainly because I hate the look of my natural nails and need full coverage.

And after reader Magda commented earlier this week that she is a fan of the pink glitter, I figured it was time to dive in and give the collection a try.

Milani Fierce Foil Nail Lacquer

Of all the places I’ve traveled, Italy is definitely my favorite. The landscapes of Tuscany, the history of Rome, the unique charm and food of Venice, I could go on an on. All of those memories come flooding back as I play with the new Milani Fierce Foil Nail Lacquer collection that is named after Italian locales, three of which I’ve visited. I can never have enough foils in my life and these flecked nail polish colors are so me.

Golden Globes 2015 Nail Art – Kate Hudson in Versace

The Golden Globes is always my favorite award show of the season. The combination of television and film stars with free flowing booze usually results in a very fun night. Last night’s show fell a little flat but the red carpet was full of excitement. From Kiera Knightly’s gown that made me question what is going on at Chanel to Julieanne Moore’s liquid metallic ombre (with feathers!) it was a feast for the fashion eye.

While metallics were clearly a trend, what I really loved is a look that’s also big in nails, cutouts or negative space. Rosamund Pike, Emily Blunt and Jane Fonda all worked the trend but it was Kate Hudson that caused me to gasp in this white and silver Versace design. It’s nail art as fashion and the inspiration for my Golden Globes Negative Space Nails.
