Mani(c) Monday - July 29, 2013

I'm disappointed by the fact that I haven't been keeping up with posting these...but what can I say, I was busy.  Anyway, here's another summer color that I've worn recently that I have been incredibly in love with.  This time I wore Coy Coral by CoverGirl, a generally toned down coral shade that is on the deeper end of the color spectrum, which is noticeably darker than Tart Deco by Essie that I did a post on over a month ago.  This is the first time I've tried out the CoverGirl line of polishes, and I have to say I am very impressed with the overall quality and how opaque they are, so I'll definitely look into picking up more of the color varieties in the near future.  Since summer is kinda winding down, I'm gonna make a conscious effort to utilize my summer polish shades.  All photos taken by me.  =]

Bit of Bright

Been so caught up in being busy lately, so I haven't been too active in posting outfits here.  However, after this week I should have a bit more time freed up to post on a more frequent basis *fingers crossed*.  Anyway, I have been very captured by the elements and trends of the summer, and have been trying to utilize them as best as I can with my personal style.  In this outfit, I'm pairing my black and white striped tee with a black pair of shorts, though I used accessories such as my bright socks, bag, and bracelet to add an electric pop of color to the look.  I'm not typically one to gravitate towards bright colors, but I've been incredibly attracted to them recently.  Hopefully I'll be able to post more colorful summer outfits before the season is through.  All photos taken by Zeric Villanueva.  =]

Outfit Details: Black and white striped pocket t-shirt by Ralph Lauren, black cotton shorts by Banana Republic, Shoes: Italian leather ankle boots by Bruno Magli, chartreuse ankle length socks by Style & Co.  See other photos for accessory details.

Mani(c) Monday - July 8, 2013

It's been such a long time since I've posted one of these...and I honestly have no excuse but outright neglect.  Nonetheless, here is the last shade I had on my nails, a bit seasonally appropriate though generally toned down.  This time, I was wearing I Don't Give A Rotterdam! by OPI, a bluish grey shade with silver glitter running through it.  I find it to be the most subtle blue polish in my collection, but I find that it wears beautifully, and is very easy to pair with summer outfits.  I really wanna dip into my bright shades for summer, but they'll have to wait for days when I'm not working.  All photos taken by me.  =]
