A Closer Look: Cheery Blossoms

Cheery Blossoms‘Tis the season for good cheer and, of course, color, and this newcomer arrives bearing both. Inspired by graphic blooms, Cheery Blossoms’ glittering floral centers resemble faceted stones, dressed in shades of garnet and ruby, and soft and bright pink. A graphite gray ground helps highlight the black and white. Styles in this print pair perfectly with new Tango Red and Classic Black Vera Vera, and bring a bright accent to holiday wear.

Polish off the look with Pink Swirls

Polish off the look with Pink Swirls
Our talented Product Development Design Assistant, Van, is back on the blog sharing a Pink Swirls-inspired polish plan for a cute look tied to an important cause. Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a manicure made to spread October’s message of hope.

Polish off the look with Pink Swirls

Van’s advice:

SUPPLIES: You can use the thin brush provided with nail art-specific polishes or a small paintbrush.

PREPARE: Before you apply your base coat, buffer your nails and then clean with alcohol or water (not soap).

WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES: If you take a wrong stroke with the dark polish, simply go over it with white or pink.

PATIENCE: After you complete the black outline, wait at least 15 minutes before applying top coat. And remember to be patient with yourself … this is art after all.
