First, I have put together my 6 favorite colors of 2012 (more specifically, this fall/winter). I think these colors are staples for many winter looks. (courtesy of polyvore of course)
From left to right (starting on the top row)
1. Sally Hansen "Commander in Chic"
2. Essie "Chinchilly"
3. O.P.I. "Glitzerland"
4. Essie "Bobbing for Baubles"
5. Essie "Skirting the Issue"
6. O.P.I. "Cajun Shrimp"
I own all of these colors and they have probably been my most used colors in the last few months. I remember looking for these gray hues a year ago when they weren't popular yet, they were very difficult to find. Now, there are several to choose from. Of course, the bright red is a go-to year round!
My next feature is a "must-know" for those of you who paint your nails regularly (or don't :) ). On of my pinterest browsing sessions, I found a great tip from Real Simple. I'm not sure how old or new the tip is, but it is one I have to share!
You can use No Stick Canola Oil Cooking Spray to create an instant finish to your manicure. All you do is Polish your nails and wait about 10 seconds. Then, hold the cooking spray about 6 inches from your nails and spray onto each fingernail. After spraying all your nails, wait about 20 seconds and rinse oil spray off under running water. Voila! Instantly dried, smudge-proof nails. They shine too! Give it a try, it will change your life (ok maybe not, but it's still a big deal).
1. Cooking Spray
2. Spray Nails
3. Rinse under water
4. Dry Nails for a shine!
Go paint your nails for the holidays, hurry! Now that you know this trick, you can do it in a few minutes and have a shiny, dry manicure.
More importantly, enjoy Christmas Eve with your family and have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
Don't forget the reason we are celebrating :)
I'll meet you back here after Christmas!
