Something Old

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.

I have another wedding nail art inspiration that will take a simple French manicure into something pretty and delicate for your wedding day.

One of the “Something Old” that came to mind was something that a friend included in her wedding. It was a piece of lace from her mother’s gown that she had incorporated into her own. So I decided to create my own lace nail art. It turned out so lovely that I think I could wear this on any occasion!

Il Etait Un Vernis – Licence to Polish

I’ve got some beautiful polishes to show you today all the way from France! Bérangère and Stéphanie are the co-founders and creators of a nail polish brand called Il Etait Un Vernis.

One of the main awesome things about these polishes are that they are 5-free and vegan. Yay! I’ve been more apt to wear polishes that are at least 3-free or more because I was pregnant last year and I wanted to be careful of what polishes I wore, though I didn’t leave the polishes on my nails for very long.

This new collection from Il Etait Un Vernis is called Licence to Polish, an elegant and non-traditional winter collection. The subtle holographic effect has so much life to it. Absolutely beautiful! I think what also made me love this polish is the fact that the formula was amazing! I had no trouble whatsoever and it was so easy to apply.

Christian Louboutin – Rouge Louboutin

What more can I say. Absolutely fabulous! As a collector of fine things and a lover of nail polish, I just had to have this. The bottle is gorgeous and the red… I love the red. I actually own a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, so this paired nicely with it. And what better way to celebrate the holidays than with a perfect red polish manicure.
