So, I decided to try a trend that I’m seeing in all the celeb weekly magazines — the dual polished manicure. Just recently, Kimora Lee Simmons was nailing the trend on the latest episode of Fashion Police. At my nail salon, I grabbed essie’s Sugar Daddy & Bermuda Shorts (I think) and decided to give this…

While at the shooting for ‘GMA’ Records Week: Most Makeovers in 24 Hours (post coming soon,) I saw Réal’s perfectly manicured nails and had to capture it for the Manicure Monday series, It was really refreshing to see the nice pop of color considering that the sun took a week long vacation from Manhattan and in its…

Saturday was a full day! I cleaned my house, went to a child’s birthday party, then a friend’s house for drinks and dinner. So, I deemed Sunday a day of beauty and relaxation. First stop, my nail salon for an overdo manicure and pedicure. Then, my hair salon for a ’round-the-way wash and set. So,…

Monday Manicure: essie Nutmeg

This discontinued and flawless Nutmeg shade is from the spring 2006 collection, so I went into the beauty vault to pull this out. (don’t worry, this shade is still available for purchase online.) Occasionally, I like a muted, nude color, but it can be difficult to find a hue to compliment my skin tone and naturally…

Janet stopped by my pad last Saturday and the first thing I noticed was her terrific manicure. Baby, this manicure presented all the right sparkle and, ooh, all the right shine. It’s genius, just like its name. The plumish hue  perfectly match her skin tone and nicely trimmed nails. So, of course, I had to feature it…

I’m so glad my bowling league is over, now I can get a manicure without worrying that the game will break my nails or chip my polish. My cuticles need some serious TLC. They are dry, peeling and just straight brittle — so I have to pay extra attention to them. Regarding the manicure, I…

The complete salon manicure from Sally Hansen is a 5-step system in one bottle. That means you get your Base Coat, Strengthener, Growth Treatment, Color and Top Coat in two coats of polish. I also cheated a little and used a Revlon ColorStay top coat, because I just didn’t one coat of polish could do…

I don’t care if the games in the M Booth bowling league ruin my nails. I just had to get a manicure. I stopped into my local nail salon for a little shiny and glossy pick me up. (Plus, my nails needed to be groomed; they looked a hot mess.)  This color from Essie was without a…

I joined a bowling league at work. (Disclaimer: I can not bowl, you don’t want me on your league, but I love the sport and have so much fun.) The games are Monday nights. Since bowling usually wreak havoc on my nails, I’ve decided not to spend any money in the salon and give myself…

I’ve been dreaming of laying on a beach looking at the Carribean Sea sipping on a frozen goodness as a light breeze gently sweeps my skin. Since it’ll be a few months before my dream becomes a reality, I decided to wear some of the tropics on my nails with my recent manicure.  I love…
