E! Manicam Coverage at the 2015 Golden Globes

Jennifer Lopez went for a toned down rose gold, wearing L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish in Charmed, I’m Sure. A drastic change from last year's graffiti inspired manicure by far! The polish is full coverage, while the dress seems to be about half a millimeter away from a <AHEM> major wardrobe malfunction. -_-

Julia Goldani Telles chose a medium toned peachy pink polish to accent her gorgeous blue dress. While the shade is lovely, it's leaving a bit to be desired for me. I do find the dress to be stunning,  though I think she could have really made her nails pop with a beautiful bright red to match the color of her lips.

Chrissy Teigen picked both a stunning gown and a stunning polish, for me she stole the show! I am a fan of matching the nails to the look, and this was a perfect match. The accents of her gown are so intricate, the understated nails are spot on and exactly what was needed. Personally, I would have added a glitter gradient accent nail, but we all know I'm a girl that needs a bit of bling!

Lupita Nyong'o also chose to let her purple floral Giambattista Valli Couture gown shine by choosing a soft pale pink nail shade with thin french manicure tips. As much as I love a good solid polish from time to time, I have to say that I am seriously feeling bummed at such a lack of nail art this year. Last years Golden Globes manicam showed tons of nail art, and I was really looking forward to a repeat performance.

Katie Holmes did not disappoint, giving me the closest thing to nail art by using China Glaze Pelican Gray with a layer of Tinsel Town to create this gorgeous gradient. I love that her deep violet Marchesa dress is simple and she lets her glitter tipped shoes and nails bring the sparkle to the ensemble.

Camila Alves, as beautiful as she is, unfortunately just did not wow me with this look. I really thought she was going to show up and blow the crowd away, but the smock topped dress didn't do her wonderful figure any favors, and this copper colored french manicure just left me feeling a bit meh.
Jessica Chastain Golden Globes

Jessica Chastain debuted one of the darkest nail hues of the night along with her bronze Atelier Versace gown. The photo makes it hard to determine, but it looks to be either a dark copper or a pure black polish.
Ellie Kemper Golden Globes

Ellie Kemper's ornate Naeem Khan frock was a huge YES for me! I loved the intricate beading and the small colored accents. I think she absolutely made the right choice with her classic bold red lips and matching manicure.
Quvenzhané Wallis Golden Globes

How beautiful is this little budding fashionista? Quvenzhané Wallis is rocking both her perfect lavender manicure with white accent bow and her custom made Giorgio Armani dress. I love how they kept her look both fun and age appropriate!

Holiday Party Perfection - Look of the Day

Holiday Party Dress by @unitedinbeauty

Holiday Party Perfection by UnitedinBeauty on Polyvore

After thinking on it a bit, I've decided to venture outside of my comfy world of nails and expand the blog a bit by including both beauty and fashion items as well, and here is my first look! I tried to come up with something effortless, yet polished and holiday party appropriate. This entire look is based around my recent 12 Days of Christmas green holographic manicure featuring Color Club - Holiday Splendor. No doubt that green sparkly polish will look amazing with this cute lacy party dress and the green and gold jewelry. 

One of my favorite parts of this look is the cute little clutch, I used to be such a big fan of oversized purses, but now I find a clutch to be so simple and streamlined. Plus it stops me from cramming it full of everything I've ever purchased in the past 10 years! Honestly, a clutch is perfect for tossing in the essentials - an ID, some cash or a credit card, and a lip gloss. No need for a heavy bag, just grab and go!

Pantone's 2015 Color of the Year : Marsala

Photo: Pantone


The moment you've all been waiting for has finally arrived... earlier this week it was announced that the Pantone Color of the Year for 2015 is 18-1438 Marsala. This rich brown red wine shade is going to be EVERYWHERE for the next 12 months, so we might as well embrace it, right?

This shade does look like it has all the makings for a perfect Fall/Winter transition color, but I'm anxious to see how well it will work into my Spring/Summer color palette.

 I've got to admit, just seeing the swatches is making me feel a bit reminiscent of 1990's flannel wearing, Nirvana loving me. I was so ahead of my time...


Share your thoughts about the 2015 Pantone color of the year below. Will YOU be working this color into your life?
