Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather

A fall favorite of mine is Deborah Lippmann’s Stormy Weather which was created along with Narciso Rodriguez. Stormy Weather is a richly pigmented granite-grey with a cream finish. Like all Deborah Lippmann polishes, Stormy Weather goes on like a dream. It is a pleasure to paint your nails with such a polish. It covers in one coat, opaque in two, leaving a streak-free finish and incredible shine. Stormy Weather has a long-wear time with zero chipping even after a weeks time. I only changed my polish because I wanted to switch things up and not because I needed to. I love this shade for fall and winter and can see myself reaching for it often.

Black on Black French Mani

I saw this manicure in a YSL campaign and knew I needed to recreate it. It is so chic and easy to do, I hope you will try it.

What I used:

  • Essie Licorice
  • Essie Matte About You
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

  • First, paint your nails with Essie Licorice (or any black nail polish, this formula was fantastic) then apply Seche Vite Top Coat and allow to dry.

  • Second apply french tip nail stickers covering the tips which will remain glossy. Paint the nail underneath with Essie’s Matte About You. I find it easier to do it this way because the stickers to not stick where I have applied the glossy quick dry top coat.

  • Peel of stickers and Voila!

5 things…

A list of 5 things currently on my radar…

  1. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned – these matte lip pencils are one of my favorite lip products, when I wear dark shades I love a matte formula for its lasting ability,getting on the dark lip trend ,which I am loving – at sephora.com
  2. Yves Saint Laurent ‘No. 6 Terriblement Noir’ nail polish duo – a gorgeous duo of black shades, one shiny, one Matte, think of the possibilities… – at nordstrom.com
  3. Alpha H Liquid Goldeveryone should be using an acid peel containing AHA’s to exfoliate skin, not scrubs, I cringe when people tell me they are using harsh grainy scrub to exfoliate the skin, the skin on the face is so gentle and should be treated so and this is the way to do it, I wanted to switch up my current peel and I have heard tremendous things about this one, can’t wait to try it – at beautybay.com
  4. Phyto Phytoneutre Shampoo – a detoxifying shampoo from the lovely hair care brand Phyto, sometimes our hair needs a detox from all the product that builds up on the scalp – at beautybar.com
