An unexpected January beauty freebie.  No strings attached.  Simply go to the Zoya home page, choose 2 of your favorite colors and add them to your shopping cart.  You will only pay shipping at $6.95.  For your coupon code, add ZOYA2012 in that field – and voila!  You have 2 gorgeous new nail lacquers coming your way.

We especially like Dulcinea, a neutral nude-beige with rosy-copper shimmer and Tao, a shimmery metallic grey with a hint of blue.  I’d like to add that whoever gets to name lipsticks and nail colors has the very best job in the world, no?  Now, get those pretty digits typing, as this offer ends at 11:59 PM, EST.

Beautiful Zoya colors.

Calling all brides and party people! Nail lacquer alert!

Each summer, I trade in my trademark “Angel Food” or “Bubble Bath” manicure and red pedicure for crazy brights and pastels and shimmer.  I am a fan of Essie, Chanel and Butter London nail lacquers, so here is what I’ll be wearing this summer.

For toes, Essie’s “Braziliant”(bottom left) – bright corally orange with a touch of shimmer.  For hands, Chanel’s “Mimosa” (middle), a ridiculously adorable yellow with golden shimmer that looks great with a tan.  Also, Butter London’s “Sugar Daddy” (top), a milky pink that I am obsessed with and wore in Boston to accept an award recently.  My favorite, though?  Essie’s “Lilacism” (bottom right), a gorgeous pale lilac.

If you want to go au naturel, do trim, file and buff.  I like the Revlon “Crazy Shine” buffer.  Three swipes and your natural nails literally gleam.  Try dipping your digits in lemon juice beforehand for super white tips!  But above all, make sure those paws and claws and groomed and done!  Nothing says “gorgeous” like a mani/pedi!

Tell me YOUR favorite summer shades!  I’ll be giving away an Amazon gift card this weekend for you to buy nail polishes of your choice!  Also, any nail nightmare stories are welcome!  The more creative, the better.
