CND Shellac- Hot New Colors for March 2012

Yet another reason to celebrate Spring!!
Every season I look forward to CND's Shellac launch. I have to be honest though, to me this might be the most perfect pallet yet.  Already, I can visualize some beautiful layering combinations!! (Dark Lava with a Silver Chrome tip, Cityscape with Silver VIP Status- I could go on and on.)

Meet the Colors:

Gold and Silver VIP Status are both sheer shimmer effects and can be layered over any colors.
Dark Lava is a deep creamy raisin color.
Rubble is described as a mushroom taupe.
Cityscape is a creamy dove grey- how yummy does this sound?
Silver Chrome, simply put is silver chrome.

According to the company's press release, these six beautiful colors will be made available in March of 2012.

For more information on where to go to have your nails Shellacked in your area, check out the CND's Salon Finder.

Let me know all of the beautiful layering combinations you come up with in the comments.

Nail Trends F/W 2011 Lookbook from CND

Nail trends for Fall/Winter 2011
If you're a nail-aholic like me, you have to watch this video.  I've been lusting over the pictures of these nails on the runway, but I always love to see how they are done and what the inspiration for each nail is.  The newest video from CND showcases looks that are edgy to elegant, sophisticated to sexy.  The best part is that many of the looks are easy to have done by your nail artist.

Orange Nail Polish- Big trend or only for Halloween?

I have to admit I love the orange nail trend.  It looks fun and funky on longer nails and sophisticated on short square nails.

After just returning from vacation in Hawaii, I thought I'd ditch my usual classic style nails for something slightly tackier and a little fun.
