AMA’s 2012: Fashion Report!

19 Nov

Hey everyone!

I hope everyone got a chance to catch the AMA’s last night because there were some outstanding performances from the biggest names in the music industry. My favourite performers of the night were definitely from The Wanted, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber! However, my overall favourite part of the show….and of every other award show… was the red carpet! This year, a ton of the stars were strutting the red carpet with intricate embroidery detail and shiny sparkles. Here are some of my favourite looks from the evening.

Left to Right: Carly Rae Jepson in Gomez-Gracia sequined gown, Hedi Klum in a Alexandre Vauthier mini, Taylor Swift in  Zuhair Murad and Carrie Underwood in a Abed Mahfouz gown. 

My favourite look of the night was brought to us by Taylor Swift!

Taylor looked flawless  in this long sleeve, floral embroidered dress with gold beadwork detail and an open back by Zuhair Murad. Her hair was styled into a retro up-do and her make-up complimented her look appropriately. This will deffinatly go down as one of my favourite Taylor Swift looks of all time!

On the other hand, Nicki Minaj looked like a  hot mess…. as always!

The Perfect Plum Polish!

12 Nov

Hey everyone!

For this holiday season I am loving warm plum coloured nail polishes. My two favourite plum polishes are by Essie and OPI. They are quite similar but Casino Royale by OPI is definitely a bit deeper than Bahama Mama by Essie, so if you are looking for a deep plum the Casino Royale is your best bet!

Casino Royale By OPI

Bahama Mama by Essie

Essie Bahama Mama, perfect for fall!

So take your pick and let me know which colour you prefer!

Manicure Monday: Caviar Nails DIY!

4 Nov

Hello everyone!

Recently, I’ve seen this super cute nail art all over the place! It is super simple to achieve and a great way to express your creativity since the designs are endless. However, caviar nails can be a little tricky if you are impatient because the microbeads are hard to work with but the end result is very cute!

All you need for caviar nails are…

  • Microbeads (Can be purchased from your local art store for under $5!)
  • Some old/sticky clear nail polish…. (We all know what I mean!)

First, you start off by applying the sticky polish and then pouring some of the beads onto your finger nails. Make sure to do this over a bowl to catch all the beads that don’t land on your nails! Press down on the beads and let them dry for 15-12 minutes and you’re done!

Here are some of my favourites that I’ve been inspired by!

As you can see, the possibilities are endless, so don’t be afraid to get creative with this nail art DIY!

Hope you enjoyed this post and have found it helpful.
