Top Trends for Spring Nails

I’m loving the fun colors for nail polish this season!  You can never go wrong with a French mani or pedi, but live on the edge of your peep toes or flip flop out over what is making toelines this season! I took a trip to NYC, with my AMomKnowsBest friends, this April for Getting Gorgeous, and I could not help but notice that women are ready to bring their toes out to play!  Some were showing off their first spring pedicure in great open toed shoes…others, like the ladies of AMKB, scored  adorable sandals from Flip Out Sandals and can’t wait to show off their cute tootsies!   I mean, really, how fun are THESE??  flip flops

So…here are the top 3 trends for Spring 2011 in nail color:

1) Blues Baby: How fun are these?! My other favorite is OPI Austin-tatious from their new Spring 11 Texas line!  I always love OPI  names, but this season they are based around Texas towns – Nothing Plano about it

2) Nudes have it: A nude nail always looks clean and fresh on toes or fingers!  It’s very easy to match with dressy or casual and goes with every color!  My favorite part is that you can’t see chipping as easily on a nude nail.

3) Shades of Gray: I loved dark metallic gray this winter and a lighter tone for summer is in style! A gray nail goes well next to the vibrant pops of color in clothing this Spring – can’t go wrong here!

New, different and off the Spring runways this season (and popular especially with the younger generation) is the “moon manicure” , gold foil and OPI’s black shatter that you polish over your current color to crackle or ‘shatter’ it!

 

What will you try this season? Do you have time to do it yourself or do you like to go to the salon?

One thing is for certain, it’s time to Spring on the Polish!

BONUS: All AMKB readers can get Flip Out Sandals for 20% off by entering code GORG at checkout.  Nice.

Getting Gorgeous in New York City

New York City

It’s going to be a fun weekend. Today, several of the contributors and I are piling in Carrie’s SUV and heading to New York City where we will meet up with Katrina for a day of fashion, fun & beauty…oh, and pampering!  Two of my friends are putting on a spectacular event in the city called Getting Gorgeous, and it is going to be fabulous!  Audrey McClelland & Vera Sweeney are the masterminds behind the event and, to be honest, I’ve never even met Vera before–but any friend of Audrey’s is a friend of mine.

This will actually be my first “event” as a blogger and I can speak for all of the ladies of  A Mom Knows Best when I say we are thrilled to get a little R&R, meet some other wonderful women and engage with the terrific brands that will be in attendence.  I really have to give Audrey & Vera  a hand for choosing terrific companies to allign themselves with.  We’re talking Degree, Lifetime Moms, Hanes, Sandals Resorts (BTW, who else is DYING for a vacation after our recent snow in New England?) Weight Watchers & Goody Hair…just to name a few!dad NYC

After hanging with the girls all day, my husband and baby will pick me up and we’ll spend the night with our good friends who have a daughter just two weeks younger than Paige.  The babies always have such a great time together and it’s so fun to see them interact!  Sunday I have a business lunch at a great little restaurant I’ve been dying to try, right by the water, before heading back to Rhode Island.  Crossing my fingers that Paige sleeps a little in the car.  She’s typically good for about an hour…that’s it.  Maybe it’s time to invest in one of those portable DVD players…although since she’s never seen a movie it might kind of freak her out.
