Cinderella Inspired Glass Slipper Mani

Since I’ve been on this Cinderella kick (here and here) when I was deciding on what to paint my nails I was inspired to do “glass slipper” nails!

Don’t tell me you never made your fingers walk, because I know you did.  Now make those fingers walk in glass slippers by painting your pointer and middle with a white base with a reflective blue undertone in Julep Dana.  Then top it off with the Essie Luxeffects in Shine Of The Times for an almost broken glass refection!

Paint the rest of your nails in a robin’s egg blue with Julep Shelly.  Bippity Boppity Boo!  You have (another) mani fit for a princess!  Cinderella would totally approve of these shades and the quick easy styling to this mani!  From doing dishes to going to the ball this look is what fairy tales are made of.

It’s really hard to capture the muti-deminsional reflective nature that is Essie Shine Of The Times.  Just take my word for it (my word of alicia haha), it’s absolutely stunning over white.

Chic Peek: LC Lauren Conrad Disney’s Cinderella Collection

Chic Peek: LC Lauren Conrad Disney’s Cinderella Collection

One of my earliest life memories is this magical day when I was a little girl and my older brother and mother took me to see Cinderella. It obiv was a re-release but to the 5-yr old Alicia is was the newest most magical movie ever and spawned many Cinderella themed outfits for most of kindergarden. Now with the live action Cinderella in theaters, the outpouring of Cinderella collaborations has been nothing but pure Disney magic.  They’re making me just as happy as a 5 year old Alicia wearing those screen printed Cinderella outfits with the matching skirt/leggings. My favorite collaboration has to be the LC Lauren Conrad Disney’s Cinderella Collection.

Besides being completely inspired by her super fun ad campaign (see here), to her launch event (see here) I went to my local Kohl’s to browse the collection they had in stock.  This collection is perfectly fitting for a modern day princess, clean cut, dainty and girly.

Alicia's Top Picks From The Collaboration

Alicia’s Top Picks From The Collaboration

My top picks from the collaboration are (from left to right), Mesh Back Dress ($80), Organza Bow Back Dress ($80), Foil Graphic Tee ($44) and Tulle Skirt ($64).  The best thing with Kohl’s is there is always a sale going on and coupons/additional discounts so those original prices are never what you pay.

Now if only I could wear a tulle skirt every day of the week!  A big tulle skirt may be a little hard to wear but dressing it down with a graphic tee makes it all the more wearable.  Might just be the perfect pairing for a Easter gathering or a spring fling!  (shoes and watch from my eboutique)

Mani Monday: Copy Cat Lauren Conrad Nails

Lauren Conrad posted this pretty up on her Instagram page and I was immediately smitten, the soft shades, the gorge trimmings and that nail!  A small pop of sparkly goodness that I HAD to recreate!  It looks like a white base shade with pink undertones and a glittered textured top coat like Essie LuxeEffects (which I’ve been known to rock).

For my recreation I used Julep Dana as my base and Avon Dazzlers Top Coat in Disco Ball.  I think the outcome was definitely spot on!  I could of gone with Avon Dazzlers Top Coat in Show Stopper Copper to look a bit more like hers, but I liked the silver.  I have many Essie LuxeEffects and I have to say these Avon Dazzlers are giving them a run for their money… literally, considering these Avon polishes are only $6.
