reviewing now: red carpet manicure part II

I apologize for the late post.  Life has gotten the best of me lately, but here's a short update to my Red Carpet Manicure Review posted here.

I purchased and have worn the Red Carpet Manicure colors in Nominated For, Midnight Affair and Simply Stunning.  Let me start by "dittoing" what most other reviewers have said: the colors look nothing like the bottle when you put them on.  I didn't make any BAD choices: Nominated For is a nice deep, dark purple; Midnight Affair is a deep, rich blue; and Simply Stunning is a nude color.  Simply Stunning wasn't my favorite upon application, but it grew on me, and it is definitely the only color I would consider wearing for two weeks.

weariang now: stopping in

Just a quick outfit of the day from a couple of weeks ago.  Have a lot going on right now.  I should be back to blogging regularly in the next couple of weeks.  I know I need to write an update to my Red Carpet Manicure Experience.

wearing now: not skinny

I usually wear skinny jeans so these are a nice change of pace from the usual!  They are also easier to layer tights under on those cold winter days.

I added a black blazer because you never know what the temp will be in my office.

writing now: 2011 game changers

I'm not one for making New Year's Resolutions so I wanted to say goodbye to 2011 and hello to 2012 by sharing my favorite items, what I call my Game Changes, for the year.  Some were products that I've discovered in 2011, some were those I rediscovered in 2011 and still others were items that have stood the test of time.

wearing now: uniform

This has totally been my uniform of late.  Nothing special.  One or two layers of shirt, a blazer or a cardigan, jeans or slacks, accessories.  It's working for me now, and I haven't felt inspired to stray just yet!

Ironically, a few other people in my office were also wearing animal print!  Great minds..great minds!

writing now: essie case study + orly vip

I neglected to post a pic of one of my glitter manis. 


This is a combination of case study and orly vip. I found that these glitter polishes really helped my mani stay put for awhile, especially considering no top coat was used!
