I’ve blogged before about white eyeliner but I only recently tried my hand (no pun intended) at WHITE NAIL POLISH, inspired by my favorite TIC TAC flavor, Freshmints. At first glance, I kinda felt like I had applied white out on my nails, circa high school when you were bored in class, but after a few minutes I decided that I liked my white nails, especially after adding a little sparkle to my ring finger.

Look into a fun vacation. I’m really into The Grace List, a new take on a private members club for a new generation. The Grace List connects its vetted membership base of “Urban Affluents” through one-of-a-kind trips and destinations, like an annual 65 person, 7-yacht holiday to St. Barths over New Years and trips to F1 Grand Prix and Art Basel and more, in addition to annual houses in Telluride and the Hamptons (with full staff & ‘satellite’ office capabilities so members can work remotely). Done deal. (image via TheGraceList.com)

Green With Envy
Green has been, and always will be, my favorite color and when I say I had a childhood obsession with green, I’m not joking around. According to my mother, I ONLY wore the color green (and some shades of teal and blue/greens) for the first four years of my life. I also had a pair of green Nike sneakers that I literally wore until they fell apart. Basically, when I decide I like something, I like REALLY like it…and you’ve gotta respect that quality about anyone.

BREAKING NEWS: Gwen Stefani by OPI
Of course, leave it up to my loyal Facebook friends to alert me to the fact that my all-time idol, Miss Gwen Stefani, has officially announced that she has partnered with OPI nail polish to release seven new limited edition nail lacquers next year. Inspired by the 2013 Met Gala in New York City that featured the theme “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” the collection celebrates the role of music as a major influence in fashion.
“With her expertise as a singer, songwriter and designer, who better to collaborate with than Gwen Stefani? Known for her trademark red lips, bold eye makeup and nail art, Gwen uses beauty to accessorize her style” says OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann.
Gwen Stefani by OPI includes seven limited edition nail lacquers: Hey Baby, I Sing in Color, Love.Angel.Music.Baby., 4 in the Morning, In True Stefani Fashion, Push and Shove and Over & Over A-Gwen. The latter color, Over & Over A-Gwen, was created to match Gwen’s signature red lipstick and is available in a boxed set that includes Swarovski crystals and studs to create inspiring nail art.
The collection will be available beginning January 2014 at professional salons, including Chatters, Dillard’s, Pure Beauty, Regis, Beauty First, Trade Secret, and ULTA.
I. cannot. wait.
