Wish List: exploring the world of nail art and Chloe Sevigny

I've become obsessed with nail polish ever since I found this cheap salon doing the most amazing manicures that last two weeks... for $6! I haven't really strayed from the electric blue that you've seen me post, I'm just not ready to move on:) BUT, when I am ready, I shall dive into these.........

ROYGBIV right? I've never thought of this, looks so cool! Gotta go out and get all the right colors...

Burned out metallic, looks tough to achieve.. not with these badboys. MINX or OPI chic print (you can get them at sephora)

Shatter by OPI, not sure where you can buy this yet. Paint it over any color and as it dries it will reveal the color underneath, very vintage looking... just like crackle paint.

OK so since I'm not over this mesmerizing color, I think ill just turn it into a pure glitter look. You can buy this nail glitter at random beauty stores. You either dip the brush of clear nail polish and brush it on, or you paint our nail blue then dust it on top, tap off the excess and coat clear nail polish on top:)

Last, but not least, the miu miu nail. hand painted and glued on rhinestones. Looks like a lot of work, but I loooooove it.

Completely unrelated... but just as high up on my wishlist... almost every piece from Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony. 

Find more here:) so 1990's. Wish I could afford it.

Absolutely not, ever: Floppy hats

Never, ever will you see me wearing this ugly trend. It looks like a mix between the outrageous hats women wear to the Kentucky Derby/ a summer hat worn at the beach/ a hat you'd wear only on "holiday". NOT something you'd wear with a sick outfit out on the town. It doesn't look good on anyone! Case in point, beautiful J LO looks like she just got out of the loony bin:

Other horrible examples:)

Go forth and shop wisely. Don't just buy because you've seen other people wearing it. Trust your instinct. If you do dig this look, it's ok:) Just don't wear when I'm around...

Killin' it: Kat Von D

If you happen to be a fan of this talented lady, you may be interested to know she has a clothing line coming out. I'm impressed, but would like to see more....

I would wear every piece if it was affordable! I guess we'll see................................................ ;)
She really is a jack of all trades!

Caught in action: Mackenzie stone!

This stylish little pixie's name is Mackenzie Stone. Whenever, wherever, Mackenzie is slammin'! We call her "side boob" at Barney's Beanery 'cause she has the most gorgeous outer cleavage you'll ever see in a tank top! I would categorize her style under bohemian, but what I love most about her is she always shocks me with these random pieces that are completely unattainable. For example, the picture below...

Alexander Wang boots. whoa. AND they're electric blue. If they were my size, I would have knocked her unconscious and stole 'em. I've never met anyone in real life who owns these. 

What color green would you call that? It happened to match her LF knuckle ring perfectly! Dickweed? Whatever it is, I like it.

Plaid shirt- borrowed for the night, Leather jacket- LF, Tank top- Forever 21, leggings- Lacy Lady, her mom's store. That's right people, fashion is in her blood. Enjoy.

Thanks Mackenzie!
