Manicure Monday: fall is here! wait, no ?

by : Katrina

Happy Manicure Monday everyone!

“Katrina it’s 70 degrees today, tomorrow 84, and Wednesday 92!-_- and then back down to 70 on Thursday”  – morning text for Kim (lol)

NY weather seems to be trying to make it’s way into fall but still can’t cut the cord from summer just yet- similar to our manicures this week.

Kim’s Mani:

Color: OPI  “dulce de leche”  –  a beautiful nude/pink cream color!

& on her pinky: OPI ” diva of geneva”  – A red based- purple color with the perfect gold shimmer.

Isn’t her home mani on point though ?

The perfect and fun shimmery- copper color. &  its opaque!

Salon: Spring Nail on 14th st

Katrina’s Mani:

Color:After School Boy Blazer” from Essie‘s fall 2013 collection.

This blue-black color is perfect.  Also- Lasted longer than any other Essie color I’ve tried.

Manicure Monday – Is it fall yet?!

by: Katrina

Even though I”ll be missing Fall in NYC this year (I relocated to Puerto Rico – stay tuned for PR beauty posts) Sam, Kim, and I are beyond  excited for fall beauty trends: new nail colors, new lip trends &  dark lips, straight hair without frizz, cool make up without it melting off once you step outside, bangs maybe?  I can keep going-We just cant wait!

With that said, Monday is Monday no matter where you go- it’s still the most annoying day of the week even if you’re surrounded by tropical weather and beaches.  Manicure Monday posts are keeping me sane this morning/ afternoon so take a look at ours:

Kim’s Mani: 

From the Essie Fall 2013 “For the Twill of It” collection Kim has on Vested Interest :a mid-toned green-grey creme color. What made her choose this color? She’s dying for fall-That is all.


Sam’s Mani:

Sam has been nude-y and pink-y lately and  wanted to take a trip on the wild side and has on “Into the Night” by OPI from their Amazing Spiderman Collection. (sam wasn’t playing when she said she wanted to get wild lol) It’s the perfect metallic midnight blue.


Love both of these colors! What do you guys think? Manis were done at Spring Sun Nail Spa on 14th St . $24 for a mani & pedi

What fall colors are you excited about?!
