Mani Monday: Shall We Chalet and Golden Globes Faves

Mani Monday:  Essie Shall We Chalet

Mani Monday: Essie Shall We Chalet

My first mani of 2016… fully 2016 since this guy I technically did 12/31/2015.  Because I’m not good at moving on from Christmas I was still feeling red but I wanted something simple and shiny and clean for the new year.  Enter in Essie Shall We Chalet.  The prettiest slightly deep red, with a perfect creme finish with shine.  Shall We Chalet is from the Essie Winter Collection Apres Chic and because I’m on this Apres Ski trend (see here) I think it fits perfectly for my mood lately and my favorite outfit on heavy rotation as of late (see here).

After last night’s glam at the Golden Globes and my glam red nails I decided I needed to glam it up today for a regular girl Monday with a red lip and sparkle!  (mark. Lip Click in Siren and old mark. necklace).  In addition here are my fav glam moments from the Golden Globes:

Mani Monday: Essie Virgin Snow Winter Collection 2015

November is always a switch here in Nor Cal. Come November 1st it finally feels like fall, the leaves start to change and sweater weather creeps in. With the new month, new season it’s time to countdown to the holidays! It’s time to switch out my mani and I couldn’t be more excited to do so with Essie. For winter Essie released their Virgin Snow collection, 6 shades that capture winter perfectly in my opinion. 2 reds, a pale pink, pale purple, a shimmering silver and a dark lit within purple shimmer. I personally love picking up the mini collection which this year included Haute Tub, Apres-Chic, Virgin Snow (the namesake) and Shall We Chalet leaving out Altitude Attitude (bright pink red) and Peak Snow (pale pink).

I think this collection as a whole could not only be worn year round but all the shades you really need to get you through the fun holiday season. Lately I’ve been inspired by fresh shades you’d see on the first day of snow and the feelings of apres-ski so this collection really had me smitten. There is nothing outrageously unique about these colors but as a whole they play so well together and will compliment all the fall and winter fashion I’ll be wearing the rest of 2015.
