Nail Caviar

Nail Caviar 11

With one of my biggest beauty faux pas being chipped nails, I’ve been hesitant to try the latest 3D nail trend. After spotting a metallic, pearlized version of the nail art at Urban Outfitters, I couldn’t resist.

Nail Caviar

I opted to make a subtle statement sporting the chic beads on a solo finger. The simple two-step process gives an instantly glam look. After adding two swipes of polish, dip nail into the caviar pot and let dry 15-20 minutes. I added a base coat and top coat to the nails I didn’t dip. I’m obsessed with this chic mani.

How to Host an Oscar Party

Add Sparkle #Oscar #Party

An Oscar Party isn’t complete without a little glitz and glam. Add bits of sparkle throughout the decor.

Popcorn Bar

I adore the idea of a “PJs & Pearls” themed Oscar party, featured on LaurenConrad.com. Dress up your fave movie snacks in a chic setup, like a stylish popcorn bar.

Star Studded Desserts

No need to break the bank for a lavish dessert table. Get creative. My favorite thing about baking is the endless creativity.

Get Tagged #Oscar #Party

Everyone deserves to feel like a star for a night. Whether it’s Jessica Chastain or a Best Dressed nom, it’s your night to shine.

DIY Backdrop #Oscar #Party

Get your DIY on by creating a simple (but impressive) backdrop for all of your “Red Carpet” snapshots.

Rock The Vote #Oscar #party

Have fun voting for your top predictions. Whoever is dead-on wins a fabulous prize.

Dress the Part #Oscar #party

Who doesn’t love an excuse to get go glam? Go black-tie or wear your PJs while sporting old Hollywood waves and statement jewelry.

Happy Halloween {DIYs}

Happy Halloween! Halloween is my favorite time of the year. I love the crisp Fall weather, cozy knits, and pretty hues. I got creative today with some festive DIYs. With inspiration from my favorite color combo, I decorated a pumpkin, by painting it mint and sprinkling Martha Stewart gold glitter.

When I spotted the recipe for these No-Bake Pumpkin Spice Cookie Balls on the Free People blog, I couldn’t wait to get home to make them! I’m so glad I did, because they are delicious! If you love anything pumpkin, you have to try this vegan and gluten-free recipe.

By now, you’re probably fully aware of my obsession with nail polish. I created a fun Candy Corn inspired design for the Holiday.

  1. Start by painting your nails solid orange. Let dry completely.
  2. Cut thin strips of tape and place one in the middle of each finger nail.
  3. Paint the tip of nail yellow & the bottom of the nail white. Let dry completely.
  4. Pull off tape & apply a quick drying top coat. (I like Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.)
