I’m a huge fan or pastel nails in spring in summer because they accentuate a tan so nicely. I just purchased what I think is the perfect summer palate.

Blanc: opaque white

Fiji: pale creamy pink

Turquoise and Caicos: a bright creamy turquoise

St. Lucia Lilac: pearly pale lilac

I have lilac on my fingers and fiji on my toes and I think I might just rotate through these colors all summer.

juice beauty (and i’m back!)

24 Apr

This product may be promising the impossible, but all claims of miracle working aside it is a great one. The description claims that they used fruit stem cells (do those even exist?) to stimulate DNA repair in the skin. I believe none of that but it made my face feel so soft I couldn’t help myself. It is also organic, so the Seattleite in me is swooning. So here is my new favorite snake oil:

This is my mom’s favorite perfume and mine too, it’s a Chanel exclusive now though so you can only order it from Chanel directly. Our bottle is running out and this might be the next big buy. Honestly one of the most elegant fragrances ever.

tom ford true coral

I’ve been lusting after this forever. So smooth and just a little bit glossy, as it wears off your lips don’t dry out (pet peeve!), the color is coral without being too orange. It’s overall just perfect, and I love Tom Ford.

I’m a total nail polish snob. That might be an embarassing thing to admit but nothing irks me more than polish that doesn’t go on smooth, chips too easily, or doesn’t dry shiny.

I found two new favorites over the holidays:

Linkin park after dark

Tickle my Francey

I love them separately and I layered them together with Tickle my Francey on the bottom and Linkin park after dark over the bottom half, diagonally from top left to bottom right of every nail. They looked like dipped chocolates, fun but understated.
