Thursday’s Fab Five

Happy Thursday!  I’m so happy the winter break is almost here, teaching has been exhausting this year.  I’m also super excited for this upcoming Saturday, Rob & I are hosting a holiday party, Cookies & Wine at 4089 which of course will feature tons of homemade cookies, even tons more wine, and I’m adding in a taco bar for sustenance.

Here are five things I’ve been loving the past few weeks, and all would make great presents too!

2017 Spring Polish Trends

It’s officially warm & sunny in D.C., & while I’ve been wearing transition polish colors the past few weeks, I am so ready to break free and wear bright and colorful polish from now until September!
I love adding new polishes to my collection each year, and this spring has some super cute colors to play with.  If you have a favorite polish color right now, tweet me some more suggestions! @elizabethmayce, I’d love to chat with you!

Mani Monday: Chanel + OPI

Last week I wore Chanel Fall 2012 ‘Vertigo’ and paired it with OPI’s 2011 Holiday Muppet Collection ‘Designer de Better’ as an accent nail!  I went to Texas last weekend and I got a ton of compliments on it when I was out and about!
I’m loving Vertigo, at first I wasn’t going to get it because it looks just like Chanel Fall 2010’s Paradoxal….BUT, when you place each bottle side by side, they’re totally different.  Whew.
Vertigo is obvz very dark,  it’s kinda difficult to describe but I’d call it plumish-grey, with a hint of brown…if that makes any sense?
Designer de Better is an awesome color.  I think it’s a perfect mix of silver and gold…and it has super teeny-tiny specks of red glitter.

Sephora by OPI: Perfect Pair

My obsession with Sephora by OPI is no secret, I’m constantly buying the new colors, always getting the collections with the mini bottles.  I love this because I can try new collections without having to buy the regular size, and if I end up loving a certain color, then I’ll go ahead and buy the full size.  So, with that being said, my new obsession is Sephora’s Perfect Pair Nail Colour Set.  They have three different sets of two polishes each that offset each other.

Well, so far they’ve definitely done a great job with this idea.  I purchased the Perfect Pair in ‘Duo Wanna Have Some Fun’.  The main color is described as an “opaque electric coral red” and the pairing is described as a “sheer champagne with medium gold glitter”.  This combination is absolutely beautiful!  I just got them done yesterday and I’ve gotten so many compliments already!  I did two coats of the coral red, and a top coat of the glitter.  They compliment each other perfectly, and it’s the ultimate summer manicure.
