One Nail...Different Color?

I know it has been awhile since my last post, but I've recently heard about the celeb nail trend that's made it's way around town.  For lack of a better name, it's called the "One Nail is a Different Color Than the Rest" trend.  
I've been looking it up online and I guess it's the #1 fall nail trend.  I mean, Beyonce is rocking this fad...that's just B-rilliant.  This different way to paint your nails is pretty...unique-ish to say the least (or to say the most, depending if you're a glass half full or half empty kind of person).  If B-Town is giving this trend a try, maybe you should too. 
I digress.

I personally am quite fond of the light blue with gold :)

It seems to be a popular belief that painting your ring finger a different color is somewhat like wearing jewelry, or at least accenting existing jewelry.

Some like it, some don't.  All-in-all it will probably just go down in the book with all of the other trends of yesteryear.  Remember jelly shoes? Yeesh.

It's something to try if you're into nail art, but I give props to those who go out and swim against the current.  Why not make your own nail statement!? Or go protest something? Or go skydiving??
Okay, the last one wasn't really about making a's just something I really want to do.

Have a great Thursday, errbody :)

Cardigan Weather [Menfolk Edition]

It's no secret that a classic cardigan sweater is both stylish and simplistically sexy when a woman is wearing it, but what if a guy shrugged on this wardrobe staple when getting dressed in the morning?
Would it have the same effect or just have lost meaning among the crowd...

A guy decked out in a cardigan can say so much about him within the first fleeting moments of a first impression.
Things such as:

"I'm put together without trying that hard. I enjoy the finer things in life, such as literature and long walks on the beach."


"I'm not afraid to be who I am. I'm not here to impress anyone."


"LOL WAT? OMG! Txt u l8r I g2g."
...or maybe something along those lines.

I'm a firm believer that you should do, wear, say, and be around the things and people who make you happiest in life. I personally think a cardigan on a guy is fresh ta death.  It's not something you always see and that's refreshing. You've only got this one life to you might as well wear a cardigan :)
