i know i’m not the only one seeing green.
ever since pantone named emerald the color of the year for 2013, greens have been everywhere from teals and kellies to jades and shamrocks. i love the way that kermit’s favorite color has been popping up in fashion, but working this hue into your beauty routine can be a bit trickier. polish is an obvious choice (the best, in my opinion!), so here are six ways to get your nails on trend:
forever 21 nail polish in teal, $2.80
sonia kashuk nail colour in emerald city, $4.79
revlon nail enamel in posh, $4.99
butter london 3 free nail lacquer in thames, $15
julep nail vernis in emilie, $14
essie nail polish in going incognito, $8
will your nails be going green this season? which shade is your fav?
merry christmas eve, beauties!
i think this is my most favorite day of the year. it’s all about family and festive cocktails and anticipation for the excitement of the following morning. we’re spending it at my in laws this year where my mother in law makes a full feast of the seven fishes and the portuguese tradition is to wait up until midnight (passing time playing board games, watching movies) and then open gifts!
the husband and i treated ourselves to a christmas kitten last week (a seven week old british shorthair named ivy – we’re pretty obsessed!) so that only leaves me wishing for a few little surprises underneath the tree:
cozy slippers for working from home
a blush to brighten dreary winter days
a punchy champagne duo to ring in 2013
a soft bristle facial brush to gently exfoliate
a sparkly topcoat to refresh chipped manicures
the new fragrance i can’t get enough of!
(discovered by my mom via birchbox)
a sweetly simple pouch for staying organized
hope you get everything you wish for – have a very merry christmas eve!
