nail it

had fun the other day playing with the opi shade ‘fit for a queensland’ – the perfect balance of matt and pearlised finish for a cool summer shade. decided to add a bit of interest and paint a single glitter nail on my ring finger – what do you think? crazy about my latest molten store purchase too.. the muse or myth ring available online here.

absolutely inspired by the alexander wang fall show presented at new york fashion week yesterday.

with a vision to open 14 stores in China over the course of the next year, I certainly picked up a strong asian influence (think: militant, sculpted silhouettes with a futuristic edge) throughout the looks. difficult to ignore were the fishnet turtleneck/masks featured on the runway, a powerful motif evoking an androgynous and mysterious mood. love the new direction of this collection – same wang, just a little more grown up.

paddle pop

inspire thoughts of rainbow ice-creams running down your fingers on balmy summer days with the latest array of nail hues to hit the runways. my top picks for s/s are sunshine, lilac, orange and peppermint. when the weather starts to cool down (which could be sooner than expected with this unpredictable brisbane weather), utilitarian colours are definitely making their way into my collection: think bottle green, burgundy and rich navy.

had to post a little nail art inspiration too.. i don’t think we should ever take our nail choices too seriously.
