So it’s week two of my Ciaté London Mini Manor 2014 blog post.
This week I decided to use two colors… you know being all trendy at that!
These nails make me feel like a sparkly Barbie, using ‘Mineral Love’ and ‘Strawberry Milkshake’…. YUM!
Enjoy the pics… BTW sorry about the bad paint’man’ ship.
I was lucky enough to receive the Ciaté London Mini Manor 2014 calendar as a Christmas present… it’s a NAIL POLISH ADVENT CALENDAR!!!
What’s included? 24 GOSH DARN AMAZING NAIL POLISHES!
I love the Ciaté calendars as it’s a way to try different nail polishes without forking out an absolute fortune.
However just a note they do usually retail in Canada for about $75… which cheaper than buying all the colours. But is still an expense … so here’s a hint … if you wait until after Christmas, this set is dramatically reduced, you can get them as cheap as $25!!!
Anyway I have decided that every Friday I am going to do a swatch… I am going to paint my nails my fav colour of the week.
This week its:
ESPADRILLES, it’s a stunning ruby red. Perfect for the snowy time… it makes me feel all wintery and Dorothy like. We’re not in Kansas anymore!
The CFDA fashion awards happened last night… My invite must have been lost!
Anyway for all of you that don’t know what the CFDA awards are, it is an awarding event for the fashion world… highlighting excellence in things such as, womenswear, menswear, and journalism etc.
The star studded event was hosted by film director and screenwriter John Waters at the Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Centre … NEW YORK CITY! Rhianna was awarded fashion icon of the year and wasn’t leaving anything to the imagination, with her boobs out in custom Adam Selman gown (pictured above).
But congratulations to all the talented artists who won this year, excited to see more of their creations soon… and next year don’t forget about me!
