Mani Monday on a Tuesday, so what.  Anyone who knows me knows I’m never on time for anything.  But what they also know is I LOVE my nails.  And because I’m always late means I better know how to create some killer nail art in a super quick way!  Luckily for you I do, and its using this complete kit from mark., the Nail This Look Nail Color and Ring Set ($28).  Create a fun angled look for spring with little to no skills needed.

The How To:

Step 1:  Start with a base coat or on plain nails add 2 thin coats of Sunsation (yellow) with letting the first coat dry for at least 2 min before applying the 2nd.  Don’t worry about the mess we’ll fix that later.

Step Two:  Take Seafoam and paint an angled section starting about halfway down your nail upward toward the tip.  Because Seafoam is a bit more opaque in coloring you can do it in one coat.  You can get the idea with the video below:

Finish It Up:  Just clean up the sides and if you wish add a top coat.  Call it a day and have a super cute and super simple nail art look with just this one kit, just slip on the ring and you’re good to go!    I admit my work up close and personal is not perfect, but at the normal distance your hand are at, no one will notice the imperfections just the super springy fun nail art you did!

BONUS!!!  Say you want to go the extra mile do you!?  Then add a silver line of polish between the mint and yellow.  I used the mark. Nailed It in Tinsel (silver) from the holiday release.  Those mini brushes are perfect for doing such a thing.  Draw a thin stripe and you just upped your nail art game!

NOTES:  Not sure if you knew this but painting your nails in full on sun is never a good idea.  It makes the polish bubble and thicken up not allowing for the best application.  However I don’t care and still take any excuse to sit in the sun, which is why mine aren’t the best they could be.  Nothing a little topcoat can’t smooth out for the most part.  Either way I’ve been wearing these mint and yellow shades for the last month and I could not be more pleased with the mark. Nail This Look Set ($28).  They wear well and are the perfect fun shades to perk up your spring!  You can get the set at my eBoutique for $28.

This look was inspired by the mark. girl official tutorial using this pink from the other Nail This Look Polish and Bracelet Set.  Which is just another look you can create with the Sunsation and Seafoam set!  Try it out and let me know how it goes!

Let’s get back in the swing of things with Wear And Share Wednesday with Living After Midnite!  This week Jackie and I picked the mark. Get In the Swing Skirt ($40) a blush toned, faux leather skater skirt!  If that’s not 3 major spring trends rolled up all into one killer spring skirt then I don’t know what is!

The mark. Get In The Swing Skirt offers a basic with interest that you can build many looks around.  I mean just look how Jackie from Living After Midnite paired hers with a fuzzy sweater and pumps for a sweet look.  After I saw Lucy Hale sport it in the mark. magalog I knew I wanted to re-create her look with the mark. Butterfly Bliss Tank ($20), mark. Rebel Chic Moto Jacket ($65) and mark. Bold Moves Bootie ($40).  Sidenote, how did I not have a black leather jacket in my wardrobe before!?!  Regardless this mark. Rebel Chic Moto Jacket is PERFECT!  The fit is impeccable and its not cropped so the small of my back doesn’t get cold!

Pairing a faux-leather blush skirt with more faux-leather seems almost like it would be too much, but because of the neutral tone of the skirt they actually pair really nice together.  Putting a burnt-out style graphic tank underneath helps break up the faux-leather and keeps the look simple and cool.  Lucy Hale was quoted calling this outfit “fiercely feminine” which I think sums it up perfectly!

And we’re back in the game!  (said like Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 10 Things I Hate About You).  After an extended holiday break, Jackie from Living After Midnight and I are back with the first Wear and Share Wednesday of 2014!  There’s not a better way to start it off than with our take on a classic, the satchel!  We took the mark. Classic Hit Handbag and styled it 2 ways.

When styling around the mark. Classic Hit Handbag I went with a classic outfit.  Start with a classic shape like a shirtdress then take it modern like with the black and white stripes.  A classic shirtdress is one of those go to items that works for desk to dinner and you can dress it up or down.  I love this one from Express, the portofino dress which comes in a variety of colors and patterns.  Mom did good on gifting me this dress for my last birthday!

Black and white is always a classic which is why I love it so much for this time of year. Since its still winter but here we’re having a drought and beautiful 70 degree weather I definitely have spring fever, so sticking with classic colors solves the dilemma of the fighting seasons.

Continuing with the classics are my swiss dot tights and pumps only a bit more modern.  The tights are the second set from the mark. A Bit Lacy Tights (wore the other set here) which are now on clearance at my eBoutique!  mark. has the best tights they are really great quality and so comfy, they don’t dig into my waist like most do.  With my winter white legs a tight like these really help but aren’t too warm!

Even though the shape are classic and the colors are classic the patterns are modern and bold, which means I don’t need much in the form of accessories.  This classic chain link watch, mark. All In Good Time Watch (an MK dupe) is also a new arrival from mark. (launching Friday January 24th $40 at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger)  I just added my favorite Kate Spade Idiom Bangle and with the mark. Classic Hit Handbag that’s all the accessorizing I needed!

What’s In My Bag?  The mark. Classic Hit Handbag is definitely a new go to.  It’s fresh for my spring fever but its winter white color works for the season now.  Plus it holds everything I need in its structured shape!  So what do I fill this classic satchel with?  mark. must-haves!  For my face (which you can’t see since my Burberry shades hide it) I used the mark. Got The Goods foundation, mark. Light Show (shown below) as my bronzer and mark. just blushing in dollhouse on my cheeks.  On my eyes I used the new On The Dot Smokey (shown below), mark. Get In Line Liquid Liner in Painted Black (shown below) and mark. Lash Act Mascara in Blackest Black (shown below) and on my lips I used the new On The Dot Lip pallet (shown below).  All these I stuffed chicly into the mark. Flora Fab Makeup Case a new must-have and a new favorite!  The chevron pattern had me at hello and the double zippered compartments keep me organized.  Perfect to throw in your bag and go!  You can get all these items at the eBoutique!

If you caught my last post, Word Of Alicia on American Hustle, then you know that I had no idea how influenced I was 70’s fashion and here’s and example of it!  This look, though classic, is definitely a modern take on a retro look, and its definitely me!  To see more details on Jackie’s take on a look based off the mark. Classic Hit Handbag, head over to Living After Midnight for her black and navy winter look.  Her NY winter is much more sever than my CA one.
