Embrace Winter Blues!

Bookmark and Share Posted on 10/15/2012

When you feel those winter blues, turn them on their head and harness it into a new nail trend! Sultry midnight blues and even navy will be heavy this season so we've gathered some of our favorite hues to make your selection that much easier. 

Like hair, ombre nails are such a fun way to break out of the typical one shade manicure and The New Black's Horizon Ombre Set is a definite head turner. If you can't choose just one shade you'll love this transcending color scheme palette that offers five different shades to rock individually on each nail or wear your favorite! 


Deborah Lippmann's Lady Sings the Blues is a sparkled black 'n blue that is ideal to compliment a cocktail dress or to a festive holiday party. Color Club's Chelsea Girl is an ultra bright true blue that could be considered neon. Wear this with everyday outfit for a pop of color that compliments the Fall/Winter 2012 nail trend. 


Butter London's Blagger is  a striking cobalt blue that definitely makes a statement. Other nice variations of the shade could be Big Smoke (metallic navy) and Royal Navy (naughty nautical blue).

True Hollywood Story - Erno Laszlo's Institute Re-Opens In NYC! » -

Shop Erno Laszlo skincare here!

I have never been more excited than when I flipped through the November 2012 issue of Vogue magazine and came across an article about the re-opening of the Erno Laszlo Skin Institute in New York City. For those who aren't familiar with the man behind the brand I have to fill you in on this wonderful story. Dr. Erno Laszlo was known as one of the first celebrity dermatologists and his talent was proven by his silver screen clientele which included Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner, Grace Kelly and more. The original location those many years ago was like that of a secret society with new members only being allowed 'in to the club' if they received a recommendation by two already initiated friends! Membership also entailed a level of discretion and privacy for yourself and fellow members as it was prohibited to say who was there. 

Erno Laszlo's custom made formulations for his celebrity clients are the basis for The Hollywood Collection, five re-formulated products to adress the skincare needs of the modern woman. The Erno Laszlo Institute when opened will boast six beautiful treatment rooms laid out in an octagon, red leather staircase and floor to ceiling Swarovski crystal chandelier. Classic staples like the Sea Mud Cleansing Bar and Shake-It Tinted Treatment along with a new cream version of Phormula 3-9 are on display along a 26 ft marble table making skincare never look so luxe! 


If you ever happen to be in NYC a treatment at the Erno Laszlo Institute is a must. With a Hollywood story like this brand has your skin is in the finest of hands and attentive eyes during an enzyme peel, light therapy or whatever treatment your skin is needing. I'd just be wondering what celeb was in the room next to me!
