DIY Nails: Pink with Purple Polka Dots

When plain ol' pink just won't due, get a little dotty with purple polka dots! Perfect for a whimsical bride on her big day! I used colors from Essie (a pink one whose name tag was ripped off and a purple one called Lilacism).  did two coats of pink, letting it dry completely. Then, I did the purple dots. The key to the dots is to use the point of the brush and push lightly for a small dot and a with a little more force for a larger dot. Once it dries completely, finish with a top coat!


Pretty Polish


{Pretty Polish for the Blushing Bride}

Here are some pretty polishes for the blushing bride. On your big day you know that every detail counts. So these are not the most traditional colors, but as you know, we aren't toooo into that anyway. If you feel the same way, you might think these are perfect for talking a walk down the aisle. From left to right, Chanel Mica Rose, Essie Van D'Go, Essie Coat Azure (something blue!), Mac Frost Asiatique. What do you think? Perfect colors or would you go with a more traditional French manicure?

Pale Blue Perfection



We first spotted Zoya's pale blue polish Dove on the models at the Joy Cioci presentation at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York and were ecstatic when we realized they were included in the gift bags! The shade of blue is very understated, with a hint of grey, and would be a perfect "something blue" for any bride this spring or summer. 


Cool Coral 

For a bride following the trends, we bring you the hottest shade for the upcoming Spring season: coral. Coral made its debut all over New York's runways at the Spring/Summer '11 fashion shows last September, and we saw it again on the red carpet a few weeks ago for the Academy Awards. Bring a little trendy glam to your wedding by incorporating coral hues where you can. Here are some suggestions: 

Bridesmaid Dress - If you're loving coral and want its presence at your wedding in a big way, this J. Crew silk chiffon number is a classic cut, and will look fantastic on your bridesmaids' sun-kissed skin.


Jewelry - If you've already picked out your bridesmaid dresses, and you're just looking for a pop of color, try bold earrings, rings or statement necklaces for your bridesmaids or yourself.


Make-up & Nails- If you're looking for just the slightest hint of coral for your big day, use the color on your eyelids, cheeks, or on your nails. 






Paint The Town Red


Nothing is more classic than Chanel red, and that is why we love Dragon nail polish by Chanel for your wedding day. It would look particularly great with smokey eyes and a red lip for a Spanish inspired flair. Ole!
